Outliner V1.8.0, Fargo, BoxCryptor, ownCloud

Sync with fargo.io

Fargo is a cool Web Outliner made by Dave Winer, the inventor of OPML. More information about Fargo is found here:
http://fargo.io/docs/whatIsFargo.html
I really suggest to give it a try!

Fargo stores the Outlines as OPML files in your Dropbox. The latest version of Android Outliner (PRO) can open and edit Fargo's Outlines directly from your Dropbox App on your Android device.

Open Outlines with file mangers or cloud Apps

Outliner now opens any of it's supported file formats directly from a file manager (like ES Explorer, EDS) or from Cloud Apps (like Dropbox, BoxCryptor, ownCloud,...).

You may need this in the following situations:
  • your Outlines are in other cloud folders than the ones Outliner needs (e.g. with fargo.io)
  • you use a cloud service other then Dropbox (e.g. OwnCloud)
  • you want to be sure that you Outlines are encrypted in the cloud (e.g. BoxCryptor)
  • you want your Outlines to be encrypted in a Truecrypt container (EDS Encrypted Data Store)
  • you use some third party sync tool (like FolderSync) and want to organize your Outlines with a file manager
In the Tutorial you will find more information at:
http://android-outliner.blogspot.co.at/p/tutorial.html#542836942
In particular you can consider the possibility to keep Outlines with sensible personal data encrypted in the cloud by using BoxCryptor or EDS.
