[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Scribble Code announces that Aeon Timeline has just been released to the Mac App Store. Aeon Timeline is a new timeline creation tool, specifically designed for creative and analytical thinking. It combines a clean, intuitive user interface with advanced data management options that allow the user to divide, zoom and filter their timeline.
"Most traditional timeline applications are designed for presentation," said Matt Tobin, founder of Scribble Code. "With Aeon Timeline, we have focused on features to allows the user to more easily create content, and to think about the content in an analytical way. It allows the user to model relationships between people and events, divide events into concurrent arcs, and navigate the timeline using simple gestures."
This makes Aeon Timeline an excellent tool for writers, lawyers and historians who continually grow and evolve their timeline as a project progresses.
The user can zoom to view any timescale, and filter their timeline by people, places, arcs, labels, and tags, isolating the user's focus to key areas of the timeline at a time.
"This flexibility has led to Aeon Timeline being used for many different purposes," said Matt Tobin. "These range from mapping out a story, modelling historic or real world events, project planning, and even importing data such as phone records so that they can be filtered and viewed on the timeline for analysis."
Model Relationships: More than dots on a never-ending line, Aeon Timeline models the relationships between events and the people, places and ideas that make that event reality. Aeon Timeline can calculate a person's age at every event.
Concurrent Arcs: Aeon Timeline models parallel, concurrent arcs. The user can consider alternative paths someone could take, discrepancies in witness accounts, explore the intricacies of time travel, or just divide events by ideas, projects, places or people.
Navigate and Edit: Most timeline tools are static. With Aeon Timeline, the user can navigate the timeline, and add, delete, shift and edit events with intuitive gestures. Events can be locked to prevent accidental edits.
Hidden Complexity: Filter events according to people, places, arcs, labels, and tags. The user can zoom in or out to view the time scale they wish to see, while the Context Bar provides a broad-level overview and ensures the user never gets lost.
Fantasy Calendars: Aeon Timeline is the only timeline tool available for the Mac market that allows the user to create their own custom Fantasy Calendar system.
Data Freedom: Aeon Timeline imports and exports to numerous formats, and can synchronize a timeline with Scrivener to keep planning and drafting in sync.
Pricing and Availability:
Aeon Timeline is priced at $US40, and is available in the "Productivity" and "Education" categories on the Mac App Store. It can also be purchased directly from Scribble Code's website, where users can watch demonstration videos and download a 20-day trial. Review copies are available on request.
The Mac App Store version requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 (Snow Leopard) or later. The Direct Purchase version requires Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or later.
