Workflowy is an essential tool in my daily life. Simple and no matter what, it works. Only issue is with andorid implementation. To expand lists, the + and - are all the way to the right. Since I am using it on a chromebook, it is hard to tell which +/- is for which list. It would be som much easier to implement it similar to a web page version with the +/- on the left of the bullets. I don't use the chrome extension version since it doesn't work with a VPN on the chromebook.
Absolutely my favorite app for managing nested lists of any kind. Recently, the "drag to sort" capability has quit working. Instead of moving an item up or down the list, the whole page scrolls up and down. Please fix asap and I will restore the 5 star rating. 3/17/17 update: The drag and drop is fixed! Back to 5 stars for my absolute favorite task and list management app!
I love Workflowy more than I can ever describe. This is the BEST piece of software I have ever used in my life. It's elegant and simple, but can scale to manage incredible complexity without ever being burdensome to use. I use it for so many things, from managing my day-to-day to-do lists, for sharing grocery lists with my wife, to keeping notes on things I want to remember, for prepping for negotiations, to drafting legal agreements, to writing everything and anything. I literally project managed the construction of a $78 million dollar, mixed-use building in Workflowy and despite the fact that it's a general purpose tool, it did the job more effortlessly than purpose built project management software. I will never be able to express how much this software does for me. I will always pay money to support you guys! Also, they fixed the drag to sort bug! (Which I think was actually a Google Chrome issue.) Yay! Workflowy is an amazing, life-changing service for organizing everything. It's awesome.
Easily add & edit entries without changing windows or modes. Easily add sub lists and/or notes to an entry. Easy to move entries around. All entries can be visible by scrolling or by zooming in on a specific entry. Great search feature. Update: I find it much easier and quicker to navigate in WorkFlowy compared to other graphically nice apps. I am always tempted to explore other apps, and while they offer nice, but unnecessary to me features, I try but uninstall quickly. It is nice that the drag a bullet point issue is fixed.
Workflowy is great but the Android app is thoroughly inadequate. Fit only for adding items. Rearranging items is hopeless, deleting is only possible by backspacing through all the text, and formatting (bold, italic etc) isn't supported. The notes text editor is also buggy. Very disappointing.
Best brain dump, idea sorting, to-do list making tool I've ever tried. Been using it for years. All alternatives allow too many options that get me sidetracked with formatting or pictures. This is all I need. Thank you.
Fixing a bug where you could no longer drag move items, because the whole page would scroll with your finger as you tried to move it.
