TimeStory is a fast, easy-to-use Mac app for creating graphical timelines. It's used for project plans, product roadmaps, ancient and modern history, family stories, and much more!
Timeline authoring is designed to be fast, simple, visual, and direct. Despite its ease of use, it provides advanced features for styling, filtering, structuring, importing, exporting, and more, and it continues to evolve with regular updates.
TimeStory is built by Aaron Trickey, an independent developer and the owner of Casual Programmer, LLC. Its design, direction, and testing are in partnership with his wife Hemi. Aaron's background includes many years of programming on various platforms and a variety of development and leadership roles at a few different companies before going solo.
Over our careers in software and technology, we have often needed to create, present, and iterate on timelines for projects, products, and tasks. Sometimes we'd reach for a project management app, but those are often complex and cumbersome to use, especially for rough estimates and quick iteration, and often limited in formatting and layout choices. Other times, we'd manually lay out a timeline in a spreadsheet or drawing app, but these documents are hard to update, search, manage, and use as a timeline—the app just thinks it's a grid or a picture.
In 2019, we started designing TimeStory to fill this gap with a native Mac app. We wanted a free-form timelining tool which could support project and product planning, as well as historical and personal timelines. Since then, it's been such fun hearing from customers using it for so many other things!
