iOS 7 Support Coming This Fall

Posted on Jun 21, 2013

With Apple's release of iOS 7 Beta 1 to developers last week, we're hard at work making your Outline Pro experience even better!

What's Going to Change?

It's no surprise that Apple has innovated again—this time by giving iOS 7's look and feel a complete makeover. We're spending the summer making all kinds of improvements to Outline Pro's interface and experience so that you can get the most our of our app when iOS 7 launches this fall. Outline Pro 2.3 is going to be revamped and even more intuitive, with all the great features you need!

You can learn more about iOS 7 on Apple's website: http://www.apple.com/ios/ios7/.

Is It Free?

Of course! All the changes will be free updates from the App Store for our customers.

What About Older iOS Versions?

Not to worry! If you're planning on sticking with iOS 6 for a while, or if you have a first-generation iPad with iOS 5, we'll still be fully supporting Outline Pro on your device. Even though it's a lot more work for us, making our app accessible to everybody is very important. So if you're a student or a school using older iPads (or iPhones/iPods) running iOS 5 or 6, you'll continue to get the full Outline Pro experience and support from our development team.

We hope you're as excited as we are for our next big release this fall for iOS 7!

iCloud Coming to Outline Pro

Posted on Mar 2, 2013

Now that we're in the final stages of our iPhone app, we're excited to tell you about an update that's just around the corner–iCloud sync!

What Will It Do?

With iCloud sync enabled, all your outlines will be saved to iCloud instead of your device. You'll be able to open any outline from all your devices and keep all your changes synchronized.

You can learn more about iCloud from Apple's website: http://www.apple.com/icloud/.

To use iCloud sync, you only need to enable it once in the app's settings. You can also turn it off at any time, and all your iCloud outlines will be copied to your device.

When Will It Be Available?

Our plan is to first release iCloud sync as an update to Outline Pro for iPad in March. Then, when we've finalized Outline Pro for iPhone, we'll release it with iCloud already built in.

UPDATE Mar 29, 2013: We're finishing up a few last-minute changes and expect to launch the iCloud update for the iPad as well as the iPhone app in mid-April. Sorry about the delay and thanks for your patience!

What Will Change?

Users of Outline Pro for iPad may notice a few small feature changes to accommodate iCloud sync:

  • New outlines with no changes will no longer be deleted when closed. In the past, creating an outline and closing it without making any changes would delete the outline. Because of how iCloud works, and to make our app a little more intuitive, outlines won't be deleted unless you delete them.
  • Overwriting outlines will no longer be allowed. Instead, you'll be notified that the outline name you're creating is already taken in the folder you chose. You can always delete the old outline and save the new one.

We hope you're looking forward to our upcoming iCloud update. And, of course, there's the iPhone app coming soon!
