I also work there but one of my family members created a Coda doc for our family vacation, allowing us to vote on activities, schedule collaboratively, etc. It's been great.

I've been planning my upcoming vacation in Coda (disclaimer I work there). I like it because I can start free-form and evolve to what I need for that trip over time. For example I started with a table to throw ideas of places to go into, but that evolved into tasks for marking when I had booked something or decided against it. Then when I hooked this up lat… See more

A very approachable interface that can be as simple as a word doc, or as complex as a full blown PM program with interactive widgets. You create it exactly how you want. It merges the best parts of a word processor, spreadsheet and calendar into one.

When Shishir Mehrotra worked at YouTube, he was struck by the relatively pedestrian tools that kept the site running. Mehrotra, who served as the company's head of product until he left in 2014, managed his team largely using a combination of Google Docs and Sheets.
TechCrunch
When you open a Google doc or a spreadsheet, you get a blank spreadsheet and some documentation as to what you can do with it - and that's pretty much where we've been for quite some time.
Mashable
A startup came out of three years in stealth Thursday with a simple goal: Make documents better. Called Coda, the startup has the ambitious goal of making a "doc as powerful as an app," reads the company's Medium post on the launch.

Could replace: Google Apps/Docs, Evernote, an old school wiki, and even Trello or any other small team to-do apps. iOS app is just out too!

Notion is amazing. Their free version is more than enough for a small team, plus its design is absolutely beautiful.

Note taking gets even simpler

Evernote is great for clipping articles, tagging them, and finding them. The best part is the actual clipping portion which can pull stuff in different formats (simplified "reader" mode, or full page, etc). Very effective and useful

Evernote might be a piece of bloatware, but as a web content saving machine, it has no equal. I specifically like the ability of the web clipper to remove all superfluous content, like sidebars and ads, even going as far as just saving the text and images. I also like that it creates a local copy, so if a page goes offline, the content is still saved.

As of now, EN is still the best note taking app there is. I did play around with Notion for sometime but it's not ideal for quick note taking and mobile apps are still a hug let down.

It's mainly designed as an internal knowledge base but you can share pages publicly.

I was editing a Markdown text file in Pretext yesterday, when it occurred to me how naturally I was able to create a document and upload it to GitHub without dealing with the limitations and workarounds that used to be commonplace in older versions of iOS. Here's a brief account of what happened.

Last month I was delighted to discover a new plain text editor for iOS, Textor, that focused simply on the basics of text editing. Though I valued Textor's minimalism, one feature I did miss was support for Markdown styling. This hasn't been added to the app since then, but fortunately, I no longer have to [...]
