    Well, it seems official now: there will be no port of CarbonFin's most-excellent outliner to Android. Per feedback@carbonfin.com, "Unfortunately, there are no current plans to build an Android version."

    What I'm looking for:
    Code (Text):
    1. "Musts"
    3. - Support heirarchical presentation
    4.   e.g.  Numbers
    5.           Cars
    6.              Chevvy
    7.                 License Plate
    8.                 VIN
    9.                 Title#
    10.           Insurance
    11.              Chubb
    12.                 NAIC#
    13.                 Policy#
    14.                 Effective Date
    15.                 Expiration Date
    17. - Allow expand/collapse topics/branches
    19. - Allow "Remarks/Comments" for each leaf, which]
    20.   can be hidden or shown.
    22. - Support exporting to text, .XLS, or OPML  
    24. - Able to back up as discrete files (i.e. not
    25.   co-mingled with some system file or another)
    28. "Wants"
    30. - Cloud repository that can be synched with handheld
    31.   and referenced/edited on it's own via web browser.
    33. - Search facility
    35. - Import from CarbonFin's OPMH export file.
    What I've tried:

    • Apsalus: Can't figure out the UI
    • Outliner: Lacks functionality
    • GoogleTasks: The most CarbonFin-like UI, seems easiest to use, but seems to lack any facility for importing/exporting. Or am I just missing it? With import/export, it would seem tb the ticket given one could be comfortable with privacy considerations.
    • NoteLynX Pro: A contender so far, but UI still a bit clumsy/arcane and also lacking in the import/export area.
    What is it with Android list management? Hasn't anybody heard of OPML?


    Edit 2013 01-15 1007:

    The more I fool around with Google Tasks and TinjaSoft's "Google Tasks Organizer", the more I think that's the ticket. Only thing I can see missing at the moment is an option to hide the checkboxes.

    In fact, the excellent synch, the pretty-good UI, and the convenience of being able to perform major editing tasks via my PC's browser seem to explain CarbonFin's decision not to port to Android: the competition from Google Tasks and the TinjaSoft product would seem tb too great.
