Coda is a new type of document that blends the flexibility of documents, the power of spreadsheets, and the utility of apps into a single new canvas.

Tom Mohr- Dude
Can set up projects exactly how you would like them to be organized. Extremely flexible and powerful, allows for people to look at the data however they want depending on needs. Extremely powerful operating power behind what looks to be a simple and elegant document editor.

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.

When inspiration happens, put it on Paper. Paper is the best way to capture and connect your notes, photos, and sketches. Create checklists, spotlight details in photos, and sketch diagrams with unbeatable speed and ease — Paper is like a wall of sticky notes for everything that inspires you.

Ben Tossell- Co-Founder, Token Daily
I loved using this for a long time!! Although I'm bad at keeping to-do lists so have defaulted to Apple Notes (and to be honest, its perfect for me)

Mick- Founder of http://SongBox.Rocks
It's just amazing.
Tyler Dow- Front End Developer
I just recently imported all of my notes from Evernote to Bear. If you are a fan of using multiple notebooks, getting used to the Hashtag as a way to organize your notes will take some time. However, I am a big fan of the interface and think they do a fantastic job keeping the app fast, light & enjoyable.

Welcome to First Click, a daily essay written by The Verge staff in which we opine on lives lived in the near future. As of this week, after the better part of a decade, I'm no longer an Evernote user.
The Next Web
I'm in love with a note-taking app for the first time since Evernote wowed me almost a decade ago. 'Bear' is what Notes should have been. Hell, it might be what Notes still aspires to be. It walks the perfect line between simple and feature-rich while offering robust options for organization, search, and - I ...

More votes for Dropbox Paper even if it's not offline-capable. This is my new favorite place to write, ever.
Sachin Benny
Wonderful for long form writing, have been using it for over 6 months now. Clean, beautiful and distraction free interface. It does not have a desktop app, which is a boon in disguise since you can use the Grammarly plugin on the web app (Its also the best designed web app note I have seen). Also has a clean, minimal IOS app that works wonderfully well. I ha… See more

Even with all the note taking tools available today, nothing comes close to the immediacy and simplicity of pen and sheet of paper. Most apps are filled with way too many options, excessive categorization, and fussy interfaces that slow everything down.

Notes at the speed of thought

Notational might just be the fastest way to take notes on the Internet.

Notational and Notational Velocity, two separate apps, but same core concept, are the most enjoyable note taking apps I've used. Notational Velocity is OS X only, but Notational is a web app. The organization is top notch, and it's distraction free.
