It's certainly not a replacement, but an app I created to compliment your workflow. Always having your notes at a glance means you don't have to switch tabs or lose concentration.

When you're studying it's likely that you have 100s of browser tabs and 10s of apps open. Taking notes is a pain, but tabbing around is even worse. Thought Train helps you solved that burden by keeping your short notes accessible at all times.

A post for those who care about how apps are priced, and how people behave when faced with choice... TL;DR: I changed from free "pay what you want" to $3,99+ and earnings have drastically stabilised.

Thought Train est un utilitaire très simple qui permet de gérer quelques tâches basiques. Ne cherchez pas un gestionnaire de projets complets, avec dates et mot-clés, ici l'idée est simplement de noter ce que vous devez faire dans la journée, ou quelque chose à garder en tête.

Almost a full year ago, I came up with the idea for an app which would help me get the better of my mild add using a very simple method: putting notes into my Mac OS Menubar, where I can glance at them without switching tabs.
Lifehacker
I typically start every work day by creating a list of the things I need to accomplish that day. Once something I did in the Notes app, I eventually moved to just using a page in a notebook.

Stay focused and crush procrastination

We all know and hate the guilty feeling we get when we procrastinate. With Time 2, that feeling is a thing of the past. To use the app, you add a task like "Tweak Sketch mockups, 30 minutes.” & a brightly colored timer counts down as you work. This timer helps you feel a slight twinge of pressure so you get your work done.

If you like the feeling of completing a task, Time 2 gives you that feeling on steroids! Additionally, it's really great for: 1) organizing your whole week, 2) staying focused on your work as you're doing it, and 3) tracking your daily effectiveness. And all in one clean design! It's basically a distraction killer in your pocket.

Simple, quick, intuitive, keeps your world in a list, and lists are the way to go. The other apps "listed" here are great for multiple productivity tasks, but at the end of the day, what you need is just an easy to make and delete list. Master lists and master your life.

I love lists, and this is as easy and handy as it gets. better than a sticky note and a pen, for hopefully obvious reasons. I've tried all sorts of note-taking and time management apps, but they weren't simple and quick enough when I needed to jot something down, and then quickly manage the list. easy to add, easy to mark as important, easy to delete, easy t… See more

Wie viele ToDo- und Listen-Apps gibt es eigentlich? Hunderte bestimmt und sicherlich fallen euch auch viele ein.

I've used a bunch of Pomodoro apps in the past and never found found one that hit the sweet spot for simplicity and nice design. When I found myself wanting to learn Electron, I decided to scratch both itches at the same time!
