Any great design tool to capture ideas and store them in a cloud storage?

I'm an old fan of Ember (formerly LittleSnapper) to capture quick design ideas, mainly because it was a neat software and it organised the screen captures in an easy way, but unfortunately there has been a few issues with their integration solution to selected cloud storages and the software has slowly killed itself. I was wondering if there was a similar software out there for this simple purpose?

      Absolutely love Evernote. Use it for work and personal use and that is easy with the ability to make notebooks. Tags are super helpful as is annotating a document or editing a picture with Skitch. Makes my life easier and more organized!

    Milanote

    The notes app for creative work

    If you want something a bit more capable of organisation and augmentation of your notes, take a look at Milanote, which I highly recommend.

      I'm a non-technical co-founder of an app to help small business plan and track all their advertising. I wear a lot of hats. I'm also a visual thinker.

      I need to spread things out and see how they all fit together. I need to be able to see the big picture and then dive into the details and I need to be able to do that fluidly and frequently on a variety of subjects. I really wanted to be able to use my entire screen real estate for this purpose.

      I remembered seeing Milanote on Product Hunt when it was an idea and not yet available. I signed up for it and happily paid for the upgrade. It's the perfect app for me and I use it every day.

      The feature I like best is being able to upload links for the content I curate. When I'm ready to learn about a subject, I have great content to choose from and a place to write down my thoughts. I can add images and notes and go from subject to subject. I can clear out my email fast and that is worth the money alone.

      I would suggest you try Milanote because it can make your life so much easier.

    Trello

    Organize anything, together

    I've started an Ideas Backlog board, which allows me to quickly create a card with a high level title and description. It's working for me at the moment.

      I just started using this with my marketing team at work, and so far it seems to be an efficient way to coordinate on projects. Now if I can just remember to log in and actually use the boards...

      Brilliant for managing all your project backlogs in a Kanban fashion. Including a list for the DIY tasks around the house.

      As a Marketer I use this daily to manage workflow, sort ideas around future content and prioritize my activities. My team collaborate and report using handy integrations with Google and we use it as a Customer service and Sales script repository to store links to docs and how-to videos.

    Coggle

    The clear way to share complex information.

    The other service I've used in the past, which sadly isn't cross platform, is Coggle - quick and easy to map out ideas as 'mind maps'. I find that the categorisation can be both a help and an impediment. The real thing it misses for me is to go from Capture > Detail > Doing something about it.

      I've been using Coggle for a very long time. I've used this for my studying and using the mind-mapping method to learn new words helped me out so much. I've tried many other mind maps, but they all looked very rigid and plain. Having some color and abstractness from Coggle relaxed that kind of tension.
