    Pros: 

    The ability to nest list inside other list items is it's sell point to me. Dividing thoghts into more specific sub-tasks is key for me.

    Cons: 

    The way to interact with each item is a bit hard although key shortcuts are amazing.

    Usually my thoght process goes from general idea to multiple sub-ideas until I get to doable tasks. No other app that I've tried allows you to do this the way Workflowy does. They all let you group by tag, or notebooks or whatever but they are usually one level grups.

    Pros: 

    Infinite indent lists; operable with keyboard only; powerful search; tags

    Cons: 

    Weak mobile apps; no automation; no regexp in search

    Best outline and note-taking app for me.

    Using WF for:

    - projects list

    - clients list

    - "inbox", "tasks" and "later" lists in kinda GTDish style

    - quick note taking during meetings and

    Using WF everyday for two years, happy with it's simple efficiency. No automation at all, but you can invent any kind of workflow using tags and search. Lately company significantly improved their Android app, but it still need more.

    Artem Ushanov has used this product for one year.

I have been using it every day for more than a year now. If you keep your top level nodes tight (Personal, Important info, Project #1, #2, etc.) it's very quick and light to use and better than anything else I know to maintain a log about a particular topic (ideas, thoughts, conversations, etc.). To me the infinitely hierarchical model really fits the way I think. The only downside I have is that the mobile app is sluggish.
I pretty much live in WorkFlowy and love it! Their newest feature additions (bulk copy/paste, move etc.) really make it worth to be checked out again!

@rrhoover it's actually the opposite - super light - once you get the hang of it. Check the keyboard shortcuts. I find it to be a great tool.

I like using this in a group for brainstorming. I don't find it useful for maintaining a to-do list though.

I really love this tool. Tree structure rules and is for the best to gradually store the knowledge.
