Easy Timeline for $5

Easy Timeline from BeeDocs normally sells for $20. For the holidays, it has been marked down 75% to just $5 on the App Store. Given what it can do, that’s quite a deal.

SCO also explains the difference between Easy Timeline and the more expensive Timeline 3D. Perhaps the greatest limitations lie with the input and output functions of the cheaper version. That said, the two read the same file format, so Easy Timeline at this price makes a good way to test using timeline software. If you like what you see, you’ll lose nothing but $5 when you upgrade to Timeline 3D.

Here’s a review.

Keep in mind that both apps are primarily intended to create a highly visual timeline for presentations. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t use them to lay out historical events or the plot of a novel.
