It seems they uses something like AI to predict my churning users. I really recommend it for both Android & iOS app owners.

    Notion 2.0

    The all-in-one workspace - notes, tasks, wikis, & databases

    Geordi Dearns@geordidearns 💻 Developer · Written
    For making task lists, writing out a wiki and having quick-view kanban board I think Notion is the best product for tiny/small start up teams. I have used it for a few tiny solo projects, but also with a small team of 4-5 to organise what we are working on :) - It has a limited free-tier, so it really depends on your team size - but I am yet to reach the limit!
