Over the past few weeks I've learned about and have been trying out two browser-based organizers, Amplenote and Organizedly. I was going to write reviews of each individually, but they are so similar in their functionality that I though it might be more interesting to introduce them and then discuss their differences. Because an article … Continue reading Amplenote and Organizedly–two similar all-purpose browser organizers
SpringNotes is a new markdown note-taking app with some nice task management features. Update: I received some answers and feedback from the developer of SpringNotes, which I have noted below. SpringNotes is a markdown-based note manager for Mac and iOS that was released last month. There is nothing earth-shatteringly new about the app. It has … Continue reading SpringNotes: a newcomer to the note-taking field
I have been searching a long time for a suitable replacement for Evernote. My biggest gripe with Evernote is that it has an unintuitive user interface, and isn't consistent across platforms (although that is getting better). For me, Evernote has been a junk drawer, but not a place for writing notes… in fact, I can't … Continue reading Notejoy: My Evernote Replacement
This is an addendum to my initial look at the wordprocessor/note-taker Craft. When I wrote my that review, I missed one of Craft’s strongest features, its ability to link, not just to subpages, but also to any of your Craft documents. Let’s take a look. To add a link to another document, you just have … Continue reading Linking in Craft
I've been reading some nice things about a new writing application called Craft. Of course I had to get my hands on it to see what was what. Craft is for Mac and iOS. It cost $45 a year for a subscription. Rather than post my article here, I decided to use one of Craft's … Continue reading Does Craft bring new magic to writing?
Back in September I wrote about NotePlan 3 (which is now out of beta an in official release). Stephen asked in a comment on that article my impressions of NotePlan and Things. He said: I think they overlap in function and even in elegant modern German software design. Do they seem redundant to you or … Continue reading NotePlan 3 vs. Things 3
I used to use TheBrain as my primary data organizer. It worked well on my Windows computer (which is my office machine) because I could drag emails right into the Plex from Outlook to remind myself to deal with them, or so I'd be able to reference the information in the messages in the context … Continue reading TheBrain 12. Game changer?
Nice packaging. The tablet in the righthand box, the protective folio sleeve in the lefthand box, and the marker plus writing stylus in the middle. The reMarkable 2 arrived five days after it left Hong Kong. That's pretty good time, especially since the box had to be handed off from DHL to the Post Office. … Continue reading The reMarkable 2: First Impressions
My new reMarkable 2 tablet is on its way to me (finally). In preparation for evaluating it, I thought I'd come up with a preliminary list of attributes I will use to determine my satisfaction. I do this fully expecting other features/functions/attributes which I haven't yet thought of to become significant after I start using … Continue reading Preparing to evaluate my reMarkable 2 tablet
When the first reMarkable tablet was introduced a few years ago, I was intrigued. But it seemed awfully expensive for a digital notebook that could only capture pen strokes. Any paper notebook could do that. It needed to be more than that to win my investment of $500. Eventually the company added the ability to … Continue reading Awaiting my reMarkable 2 tablet
