My informal listing of note-takers and information managers

I’ve started a list of note-taking and information management apps using Dynalist. This list is mostly of apps available online via browser, though some are available as well on MacOS and iOS devices. This listing is in no way intended to be comprehensive. Mostly, they are apps I find interesting enough to want to check in on from time to time.

Anyway, I thought others might be interested in seeing this list. While compiling it, I did run across several apps I’d never heard of before. I will be updating this listing as other apps come to my attention, which I feel merit inclusion.

Feel free to suggest apps that are not on this list, but I do not guarantee I will include them. I am not interested in Android apps, for example.

A side benefit to this post is demonstrating a nice feature of Dynalist, which is making a list public and available for viewing online.

    1. I am a fan of Things, but didn’t include it because it isn’t available through a browser… yes, I know I’m not being that consistent. Perhaps I’ll add it. Thank you for the comment and for reading my blog.

    2. Can someone post a link to Things, or mention the developers name? Otherwise, it’s impossible to find via a search because the name is so generic.

  1. Very nice list, plenty I have never heard of. Worth adding Bear to Mac/ios list, its my favourite note app on ios though I am looking over at craft lately.

    1. Thank you for the comment. You are right, Bear should be on this list because it is very popular. I’ve added it. While not as elegant as Bear, Notejoy offers similar functionality across Windows and Mac/iOS. It’s more expensive, however.

  2. Thank you so much for this post. I’ve been searching (for years!) for a satisfactory replacement for Circus Ponies Notebook, and this list gives me some new ones to try. (Off topic: Sigh… I miss Apple’s colorful skeuomorphic days. Bring it back!)

    1. Thank you for the comment. If you land on a replacement for CPN (other than NoteTaker), please let me know.

    2. If you haven’t looked at Curio yet, take a look. It isn’t the same experience as Circus Ponies Notebook, but it does use a notebook metaphor and you can nest sections.

  3. Notejoy doesn’t charge $40/month even for their highest tier – I suspect that is a typo based on their solo tier being $4/month? They have a free tier as well.

  4. Mostly this list is for apps that can be used on Mac and Windows… either through a browser of with native apps. But DT is a mainstay for Apple devices and should be on that sublist. Thanks for the reminder and for reading my blog.
