- The old and classic WF, maybe the father of them all. So minimal yet so powerful. Even though a bit outdated since it's not been improved or iterated since so many years. Anyway, don't think WF needs much of an introduction to Product Hunters.
Usually my thoght process goes from general idea to multiple sub-ideas until I get to doable tasks. No other app that I've tried allows you to do this the way Workflowy does. They all let you group by tag, or notebooks or whatever but they are usually one level grups.
Best outline and note-taking app for me.
Using WF for:
- projects list
- clients list
- "inbox", "tasks" and "later" lists in kinda GTDish style
- quick note taking during meetings and
Using WF everyday for two years, happy with it's simple efficiency. No automation at all, but you can invent any kind of workflow using tags and search. Lately company significantly improved their Android app, but it still need more.
- Todoist is a great app for structuring lists and categorizing
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.
Organize your life with pleasure. Add due date to tasks, tasks inside projects, subprojects and subtasks. Call your friends to join your project and assign tasks for them. Comment and add images on tasks. Have your tasks everywhere with nice apps. Love it.
- In the old days I found Moo.do to be a more modern and nicer version of WorkFlowy but now it turned out to be most focused on being more an email manager than an outliner.
- I just started using it to organize a large spreadsheet of Product Hunt data. It still has some limitations (for instance, you can't widen row heights on a spreadsheet), but it's a great tool for organizing data with multiple tags/hierarchy levels.
Seeing how Airtable has progressed since it first launched is quite impressive. My only qualm with the application is the level of effort one has to put in to get a project setup. After spending a couple hours trying to set something up I ended up giving up and setting up someting in sheets using formulas in 30 minutes.
I have just started using it, so I'm still getting proficient at it. So far, I'm in love. I had been digging for a tool to help me with content management and strategy, and I couldn't be happier with what Airtable lets me do.
Moo.do is my favorite todo app. Its free-form, outline-based todo list is perfect for getting things out of my head. I also love that it makes it quick to turn emails into tasks.
Been using this for a few years as my primary todo list, I'm a happy user.
