Aeon Timeline is the timeline tool for creative thinking.

Most traditional timeline applications are designed to suit a single need: to create an attractive display of one- dimensional time. They are presentational, static, and perfectly suited to overhead slides and projectors.

Aeon Timeline aims to be different. Model relationships between people and events. Divide your events into concurrent arcs. Filter events based on people, places, and tags. Zoom to view the time scale you wish to see. Navigate and edit your timeline with a simple, intuitive interface. And when you are done, export data to a range of more...

What's New

Version 1.2.4:

Bug Fixes and Minor Additions

  • Extended maximum range of the timeline to 6+ billion years when using "Year Only Calendar"
  • Fixed a crash caused by opening a timeline created by the Windows version with a font that is not installed on the Mac (both versions now default to Arial if there is a missing font to avoid further conflicts)
  • Fixed several more...

As others have said, finally someone gets it.

The developer has been very helpful and responsive to suggestions. I've adopted this into my writing workflow very easily. A lawyer friend uses it for litigation to keep track of case elements.

The one suggestion I've already passed on is flexibility in time-unit labels. For example, in writing stories often aren't proportionately linear. There may be a one-week spurt of narrative, followed by the next bit of narrative taking place months or years later. With screenplays, one is more interested in page count and page number than exact chronological distinctions.

I think this product would easily double its sales if one could remove the tethering to chronological time and restate the time units as, say, page numbers. In other words, instead of Day 1 to Day 120, have the option to label as [unit choice] 1 to [unit choice] 120.

Highly recommended.

Not just pages or chapters or scenes... a lot of "timelining" is more accurately "sequencing" -- what counts is not the external date, but the internal relationship between events. X happens then Y happens but in A Laboratory Somewhere In Translyvania, Dr Z has connected a P to a Q and suddenly....

If someone says 'And hold on, remind me, what was the date and time?' the answer is often fairly irrelevant, no?

As others have said, Aeon Timeline provides a flexible and powerful way to visualize information over time. Its strength is many ways it provides to look at the relationships between events. I am using it for historical research and the ability to filter events by date, by category, by person or by tag is invaluable.
I have been using the program since the earliest development versions and the developer has always been very open to questions and suggestions.
The integration with Scrivener, which I use for writing, is icing on the cake.

More powerful than the limited Timline 3D by BeeDocs and much easier to use than Tinderbox. Able to export to a variety of formats so data isn't locked in. Especially, like the Similie timeline export for sharing timelines on the web.

Still has some bugs to iron out as well as some quirky behavior (for instance cmd-M brings up Manage Entities instead of minimizing the app. Not good to hijack default OS X shortcuts), but hopefully these things will be worked out in subsequent releases.

This app is good, but it has the potential to be great if the community and developer takes nurtures it to improve workflow, the user interface, and the features.

Thanks for pointing out the bugs and shortcut clash. We have resolved it in the most recent version.

We certainly hope the community gets behind us and continues to make great suggestions for future updates.

This software is really neat in what it can do. The graphic representation of a timeline is very useful for presentations and any other work that might want such. The GUI is well done and the ability for me to export results to Scrivener, which I own, is very useful.
This is some great software.

I just bought this through the developer as well.

Does exactly what it says, even more. Flexible and versatile, and a dev who listens to feedback.

FINALLY, a timeline that gets it right and is not a one-trick pony! Probably the best added bonus is its Scrivener synchronization. Developer gives the user the option of purchasing a license directly (thank you) or MAS.

The developer writes that if he sells this through MAS, Apple takes 30%. I bought from their site and got a discount. I really am not in favor of giving Apple any more than what they get from me already.
