I truly enjoy and appreciate your teams development of what is an effective outline tool and believe that outlining is an often neglected yet indespensible skill.

iLiner at this stage is fairly fundamental and basic but really needs to bring on some of the more advanced features present in a few of the best note taking and journaling solutions, hopefully without breaking what's there. This is a good is time to step up and craft a clearly superior solution to separate and diferentiate iLiner from other competing products.

I don't want to sound like a MacJournal shill but the application MacJournal is "all that and a bag of chips"! It is an essential tool in my extensive arsenal of daily research gathering and journalistic activities. I am still discovering new features and functions within the program. Dig this: If you are looking for basic journaling there probably are other choices less robust but functional. However, if you want something that can stand up to extended use you positively can't go wrong with MacJournal. It is handsdown my favorite Mac application, bar none.

It was my favorite until an upgrade broke functionality. I couldn't access all the info I had previously poured into it. so in the end it destroyed my process andturned out to be a harmful choice on my part. I hope they have fixed the version transition issues. I would like to return to using it when I can rely on it for my mission critical work. I tried Evernote and it had numerous sync issues. Finally I settled with using Catch and so far it has been positive.

I agree with most of these comments. If you reduced the initial cost to potential users and developed secondary revenue streams from developing add-ons, extentions and advanced professional features including third party creative enhancements you probaly would find a much bigger market undoubtly happy and satisfied because they are actually wedded-to and productively using your solution and benefiting from that use.

For years I have used powerful but little known search utilities on my Mac, like Copernic and a whole mess of Meta Search tools. This has for a long time helped me gain a competitive advantage in my business and has confounded others how I dug up info and do my research.

Over time my choice core of apps and search utils has grown a little "long in the tooth", so I needed an injection of newer alternatives, hopefully more useful and easier to use.

Grand Reporter was an unexpected joy to find and just what the doctor ordered. After one day of use I have already gotten my moneys worth out of it. Mac users should/could test out the limited trial demo version, then if/when you dig it enough, look through Mac Update Promo Daily Discounts to get the Grand Reporter 1.1.7 discount while its here. You should'nt be disappointed! I thank them greatly for the turn on!

BTW: Please take a moment to print out and study the GrandReporter PDF User's Guide to master effective use. Good luck and happy computing to you, enjoy!.

Strange replying to my own post. Its like talking to yourself which I hope I;m not. Things with Grand Reporter were going along fine and dandy until thinking I was being diligent casually upgraded GR. it never worked again and seemed to be no quick fixes. In the subsequent months I have lost my momentum and use of a tool that until that timeI had come to rely on as essential to my productivity mix. I also upgraded to MacOS X Lion around the same time, so I am still trying to get back to full function. I'll be happy when this is resolved or at least explained.
