- I've tried a lot of notes apps for Mac OS and iOS, but none really delight me the way that Bear does with it's intuitiveness and simplicity. It doesn't do too much, it just does enough.
I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.
Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.
- It's absolutely beautiful and works exactly as you would expect. Things has massive utility value - I run my life on this app - and the new version manages to pull that off with style and personality.Elegant and functional
I've been a Things user since 2007. Within the last couple of years Things 2.0 started to feel stale, and I found myself exploring other alternatives. Yet I could never end up replacing it.
Thankfully, Things 3.0 comes out of nowhere with a completely redesigned experience that is fast, beautiful and it allows you to do everything with speed — the perfect recipe for a todo app.
This app feels like it belongs on iOS 11 even though it was launched weeks before the iOS 11 beta was announced. It's that good!
You still can't share tasks with others, but the great experience easily out weights that need.
I've used Things since 2010. It's the app I couldn't live without. To use it well, familiarize yourself with David Allen's "Getting Things Done" methodology.
- Clean, minimal interface. Syncs well between Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Smart Inbox works well.Their search works really well and syncs perfectly with your email addresses.
I've been using Spark since the very beginning. I was an original waitlist-starting user of Mailbox, and was excited to find spark almost immediately after Mailbox went extinct. This is the best email experience on every platform, and has a variety of productivity features that make it my go-to.
Ever since Mailbox became a graveyard app, I have been looking for a worthy replacement – and Spark is as close as it gets! The UI is clean, combining dark and light colors which helps with using the app; the side menu being dark while the rest of the UI has a white background makes you focus on the important stuff (the mail list and the mail in focus)!
- Headspace definitely "feels" more premium than other similar apps. Great design.
This is the first and only app I pay for :D Sometimes it can feel like a chore to do stuff that is good for you and this app takes that away for me. I teaches you gently and pleasantly and Ive been able to stick to it and understand more about how minds work. It helped me stop biting my nails.
Great product to get focus in a world of noise
- Not just beautiful, but super functional. To do lists are a crowded market, but I feel Todoist stands out because of it's cross platform design.Totally agree. Great design across all devices. No clutter, just everything you need.
We were looking for a tool to replace Asana, and after initially testing Todoist, became certain it could be the tool for us. But sharing projects is a PITA. There's no easy way to let your team have access to all newly created projects. Also, the projects structure isn't shared, so sharing a new subproject causes havoc in the teammate's projects structure, and the teammate needs to manually configure the projects structure according to it's intended layout.
The Todoist app is ruthlessly efficient in helping me capture my tasks no matter when or where I am. Bring collaborators into a project, or a task is a snap. When I'm creating a recurring task, and hopefully a positive habit, or when I am reflecting on my productivity, Todoist works.
- Beautiful interface – admittedly it's missing some things (I still generally go to calendar.google.com for creating complicated invites), but I believe most of those issues are because of things that Google has chosen not to open up – like the concept of Rooms, etc.
- It really works for me!
- Looks very beautiful, feel comfortable to use.
- Recall runs in the background of my Mac and serves as my digital memory bank… It lets me interact with my digital history. It is an app which - because of how helpful it is - I would expect to pay for, but it is free (for now anyway!) I use it 5 to 10x a day to help me recall a doc I was working on, or pull up a web page I was browsing. The interface of the app is clean and slick... and the browser integration with Chrome and Safari (I use Chrome) is nice as well. There when you need it - out of mind, until you do!
- Grammarly quickly and easily makes your writing better.Very easy to use, clutter-free, does not stand in the way other proofreading tools do.
When you use grammarly, they put some kind of advert for youtube, so when you watch youtube videos, it will stop and their advert will start. Note, this is not a youtube ad, this is an ad directly from them.
The browser extension is a must have, but I regularly pass my emails through this, or draft them in it just to catch dumb mistakes and make noticeable grammar improvements on the fly
- Top notch UI, works as expected, syncs over multiple devices.
I rarely shell out money for any kind of software, but while there are great free alternatives (e.g. Flycut), I haven't seen anything close to the performance / usability / UI in Paste. For $10, great deal.
I set clipboard history to unlimited and can quickly search/find old code snippets. If I ever need to remember something, I just copy it then can find it later.
I've used a quite a few of these and Paste is by far my favorite.
- Julia Petryk made this productPixel perfect UI, a well-designed app with exceptional attention to details.
I've been using CMM for almost a year and so far it works great. I've read a lot of negative reviews but CMM is a good app based on my experience, and I think you should give it a spin.
This is one of the first apps I install on a new computer when ever I start a new job. Use it all the time!
- Beautifully designed life tracker, bringing in data from every part of your day (sleep, computer activity, weight, location, activity, etc). Been using it for six months and I love checking my weekly cards.
Great team working on a great platform.
UI and relevance of data is front of mind with the team - which is a good thing.
I've been a pro user since day 1 and truly recommend the platform
It is nice app to see simple overviews of how much time you have spent Online, movement and places but you need to use those apps.
