I tried all of the recommendations here, thanks for replying guys!
- Dynalist/Checkvist are pretty cool but web based. Dynalist has an app but it’s sadly electron powered so not kind on resources
- org-mode / taskpaper are a bit too loose given that they’re just text. It’s nice to add things like tags, dates, etc but I want something with biiit more structure
- CloudOutliner looks nice but doesn’t have a trial and I don’t subscribe to setapp so I can’t try it
So far OmniOutliner and Outlinely are still what fits my workflow the best I feel. I tried using both for a bit to see what sticks and I think it’s Outlinely after all.
OmniOutliner has very nice things like column support that I wish the other apps had but Outlinely has excellent keyboard control.
CMD-L to jump within the document to any subsection,
CMD-Enter to zoom in and hide the rest and
CMD-SHIFT-O to quickly jump to a different document feel very very intuitive (reminds me of sublimetext or quick open in emacs/vim). I wish every app had these quick jump shortcuts!
It feels like the developer is a very similar in thinking to me. I just thought “man I wish there was a way to quickly insert the current date” and started hacking something together with keyboard maestro, until I realized Outlinely already has that built-in
The price to get the app is $50 for the Mac app, then another $40 for the lifetime subscription on iOS Just wish the developer would be a bit more active to ease my mind that I’m not throwing money at a dead app
I tried sending the developer a message just to checkin but the mail bounced so there is that…
