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.

Coda 1.0 is a new doc designed to grow with your ideas. It's familiar and approachable like the docs you're used to, and it comes with a new set of building blocks, so you can build docs as powerful as apps. Now available to all and it has mobile now as well :)

Coda Blog
Coda started when we asked ourselves: In a world full of applications, why do documents and spreadsheets still run everything? Why haven't they changed in over 40 years? And what would we build if we started from scratch?
TechCrunch
Coda, which is coming out of its limited beta today, wants to reinvent how you think about documents and spreadsheets. That's about as tough a challenge as you can set yourself, given how ingrained tools like Word, Excel and their equivalents from the likes of Google, Zoho and others are.

If you're a regular reader of the site, you already know that elegant note-taking apps are a dime a dozen. Some manage to stand out with unique features while others manage to squander any potential with poor business models. There are a few noteworthy apps that still manage to be worth using after a couple of weeks, like Bear.

The perfect note-taking software hasn't been invented but Agenda, a new contender that runs on the Mac, comes reasonably close. It finally delivers on a notes management feature that I've spent what seems like an eternity waiting for: the ability to link a note to a specific event on my calendar.
TidBITS
Momenta's Agenda provides novel ways of organizing projects and tasks within a note-taking system that can link to several other Mac apps. It offers a different subscription model that doesn't expire purchased features. But it has been out only since the end of 2017, and still suffers from some bugs and limitations.
Macstories
Agenda is an intriguing approach to note taking on the Mac that's organized around dates and your calendar. The app is beautifully-designed and notably feature-rich for a 1.0 but lacks an iOS counterpart, which is still in the works, and collaboration features, which will limit its appeal to some users.
Medium
TLDR; The note taking app Agenda is launching with a new sales model for Mac apps. On January 22nd, I am launching a new app for macOS: Agenda. When I say 'I', I really mean 'We', because Agenda was developed with Alexander Griekspoor and Marcello Luppi.

When GistNote was established in 2016, we focused on solving a problem that we faced as students - the inefficiencies of the research & writing process. We wanted to build a tool that streamlined the research writing process from the beginning (clipping research information), to the end (citations), so we built different features to fulfill this.

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.

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 [...]

We've been using Quip to organize and prioritize feedback. We'll have a meeting, share data from various sources. Then put the things that stick out in a Quip doc & prioritize it. Works well for us because we're a remote team and everyone can make edits at the same time.

Quip is a fantasic note taking tool (think google docs, but with way more functionality, native offline support, desktop apps, and wonderful code formatting). It's also just crazy beautiful - I'm in love. They also recently added a bunch of mini apps that provide sleak calendar and task views and more.

Information is all around us. And it's growing rapidly. Ideas, thoughts, documents, articles, links, addresses, contacts, numbers and a lot more. There is a ton of data that people want to save, organize, keep, access and share easily. And note-taking software should help here. But, unfortunately, usually, it can't.
