Repulsive pricing model. $40 for Mac and $15 iOS subscription not going to attract very many customers. Sad

Very mediocre!. Not intuitive at all, not in the sense of working like other outliners. There's nothing like CP Notebook!

Really can only use fonts that have bold and italic styles! I guess for 14.00 you get what you pay for. Btw, no where in your docs tell how to import OPML files. You can't open them only drag drop. Lost a sale.

Not bad. Nice to work with. Some odd keyboard shortcut choices, but that can be changed locally. - Not a text editor per se. Saves to a file with markup. Looks like XML. - Formatting is not automatic by placement, and status of elements a al TaskPaper, but is manual like a word processor. - fantastic import, and export options.
