A quick recommendation for an online service that most probably never heard off:
It’s an Internet note taking, collaboration and task management solution – and a beautiful one at that.
I recently gave a recommendation for Diigo as a very useful and well done internet product. Here now a second recommendation for a service that it’s worth looking at – even though you’ve probably never heard of it and it’s not coming fom any of the big Internet Companies.
Notion.so wraps together what is often spread around in an array of different services.
Like with the Swiss Army knife approach: if you’re such a pro that you MUST have EVERY conceivable feature for a specific task, you probably better stay with the specialized services.
I’m using it more for note-taking and structuring ideas and projects plus the subsequent follow up. In this respect, it rather replaces OneNote, Evernote or asana for me than the apps & services mentioned in the picture.
The major advantages from my perspective:
- very intuitive approach and visually more appealing results (e.g. compared with Evernote)
- Rather feature rich (e.g. In comparion with Google Keep)
- Very good x-platform implementation (works mostly online in browser, but there are dedicated off-line-clients for Mac and PC)
- My data not with any of the internet biggies yet again (….at least for the time being, they seem to be an independent start-up)
Not so important for me, but interesting to know: integration with other tools like Trello and Slack…. So obviously targeting an IT-savvy audience.
To sum it all up: if you’re bored or dissatisfied with the apps & services you currently use to structure and follow up your work and projects, give notion.so a try – the basic version is free (disclaimer: and signing up with the link from this article does me a favour because it adds „blocks“ (the basic unit of their system) to my account; it’s a bit like the Dropbox approach to go viral – usually, I’m not a huge fan of snowball sales approaches…. But this one is still for free and totally worth it :-)). I am 99,5% sure you’ve already spend time trying out products that were far from being so useful & appealing 🙂
