      Takes what WorkFlowy started and made it more useful and powerful. It's better!

      It offers the same basic experience of nested lists but also allows to insert images, dates, internal links and more. It is under active development. Less purist but more feature-rich than Workflowy.

      LordMax It's really better than workflowy and it works in markdown. It's just expensive for the pro version

      It just is compatible the OPML export made by WorkFlowy. What else can be required?

      tedcurran Same unique "folding" organization scheme, but with better pricing and features. Not the same as just a text editor or productivity tool!

      Dynalist is what WorkFlowy would be like if they continued to improve it! The best part of WorkFlowy is the zoomable nested lists, but Dynalist adds tons of extra features, including checklists and image/attachment support. So glad I found Dynalist after feeling somewhat limited by WorkFlowy.

    7. Infinitely flexible. Incredibly easy to use. Great mobile apps. It's free. Trello keeps track of everything, from the big picture to the minute details.
      Trello vs WorkFlowy opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Trello is still a legitimate alternative to WorkFlowy, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      WorkFlowy is a hierarchical with many inner levels all-in-one document and gives possibilities of a rapid overview/navigate in general and on every task/node in particular. Trello, otherwise, "hides" different tasks in different cards and, imho, it is heavier way to browse between tasks and see problems/issues in common.

      Trello is a Kanban to do list app, and WorkFlowy is a plain text to do app
      Negative comment over 4 years ago

      Trello is *not* an alternative to WorkFlowy. Although WorkFlowy could be used as a task manager, it is fundamentally an infinite-depth outliner that could be used for, say, longer-form writing. Trello is *not* an outliner. It’s a task manager with a Kanban-style card layout.
