    I love this app and use it for everything from personal notes (mostly mapping out my D&D campaign) to in-depth work roadmaps and meeting minutes. It's completely replaced Evernote, Bear, and whatever other note taking software I've tried over the past 5 years.

      HANDS DOWN 🙌🏼 THE BEST PRODUCTIVITY, ORGANISATION AND RESOURCE WORKSPACE myself or my team have ever touched 💯

      We're huge advocates of Trello, power-users of Slack, data-hungry Google Sheet/Doc fanatics and unloyal downloaders of many productivity, Wiki, task management and organisation apps. With my CTO I often mused the idea of building an all-in-one workspace for internal use that sat as our Pandora's box of goodies ranging from development wiki's, onboarding information and branding resources all the way to task management, meeting notes and even time tracking - lo and behold I stumbled across this gem of an app.

      We decided to run Notion for a week in tandem with Trello (for our highly-granular level project management) starting by spending an hour in the evening porting over info to populate a few spreadsheets, wikis etc. I also went ahead and threw personal pages up to trial it on an individual level. 📝Note: if you have a super high turnover of to-do's and an active team you won't find switching over from another app to be a lengthy process. After 6 years of managing a creative agency I reckon I have seen enough task management and organisation apps to last a lifetime, so take my thoughts here with that consideration.

      -------

      After a week we drew the following conclusions:

      ⏱ We worked faster with Notion than we did with Trello, Evernote or even a physical whiteboard.

      📦 Today I solely used Notion for the entire workday. This time last week I would have used Trello, Slack (sending meeting notes and memos), Google Sheets, Google Docs, the native OSX notes app and GithubWiki just to get my day ORGANISED!

      📚 Managing client editorials, project budgets, to-do lists and even basic memos and planning has been a breeze. It's great as a lightweight CRM too.

      🛠 We were more organised than ever before. It's great to have a knowledge base for our products, plans and company sitting right amongst our task management tools.

      -------

      We have also been left wanting for nothing (👏🏼 Congrats, Notion team) but dreaming of a few things:

      💵 Beefier finance organisation/support. Integrations with Quickbooks, Xero maybe? Make it easier to build budgets and organise our money plans!

      🗣 Room to annotate and collaborate on images/PDF's etc.

      🔐 Function to lock pages so you can't edit, and the little hover tooltip to edit doesn't show up.

      🎨 Integration with design apps - Sketch, UXPin, etc. Many many many creatives will use this app and be left wanting in this area. Think: a creative agency collabs, annotates, refines, develops and more...keep them in Notion.

      -------

      The TLDR: Notion 2.0 kicks a** and we'll be using it for a long long time in place of a myriad of other productivity apps and tools. You should too.

    • I want to move from Evernote (I am a premium subscriber) to Notion, I really do but I don't think Notion wants me to. Whatever I am about to say, I say it with nothing but respect for Notion and in the hopes that it will continue to improve at the same pace.

      First, the good - Notion has the best note editing interface I've ever used. A close second might be OneNote (it's a high bar, mind you) and Bear. It combines the simplicity of Evernote or Markdown with the power of OneNote although, it is missing the ability to use handwriting and doesn't support iPad with Pencil just yet. When it does, it will be perfect. I also like that I can save code snippets. Why is this so hard for Evernote?

      Notion 2's tables, boards and other updates are huge. While I'm sure the in-built kanban board is not as feature complete as Trello, it should be more than enough for most projects. Same for tables. Airtable has a bunch of really cool advanced features but for most use cases, tables within Notion are just fine. Notion is on the right path and I am sure these features will only improve.

      Now for what I don't like - The price is definitely my number one complaint. I will happily pay for Notion when it can do everything that other apps can. Until then, why not let me stay connected to the product with a cheaper paid plan or a better free tier? I pay for Evernote but if I were to consider switching, I can't do so purely because Notion doesn't do a bunch of things that Evernote can (even though it does a lot of things that Evernote doesn't) - Chrome extension to clip articles, emails, images etc., powerful mobile app with business card and document scanning, iPad support etc.

      At $8 a month, it is more expensive than G Suite on a per-user basis. Why not give me 100 - 200 free blocks per month? Let me grow to love it. Let me build a workflow around it. Give me some incentive to tell my friends about it. When you have the features I want (I'm sure you're working on it), let me pay for it.

      Price aside, I would also like to see how Notion fairs for quick note-taking, It's designed to be a wiki-style product and I get that but I'm sure a LOT of people are using it for personal notes. I use Evernote to save one-line notes - phone numbers, quotes, URLs etc. Notion's wiki-style UX is too heavy duty for that kind of use. It would be really cool if there was a "scratchpad" or "quick notes" feature that was not as heavy duty. For these simpler notes, I don't want to organize them into pages, I just want to save them and may be tag them. Which brings me to another feature I could really use - tags. Why limit users to only folders? Why not allow users to just tag notes?

      I could go on but ultimately, I won't be switching to Notion right now, even though I really want to. Cost is too prohibitive but I'm sure I'll be on the hunt for future updates.

      Really cool product to score leads: who is more interested in emails I sent. It is much easier to select leads among 100s of recepients, whom I should call first: obviously, those people who engage more with my presentations and docs.

      Docsify is a must-have email marketing tools for those who close deals.

      I recommend using Docsify, it's a great tool and have got one of the best customer support.

      I was finally able to replace HubSpot's plug-in with a much powerful platform, Docsify!

      Great work guys and keep rocking.

    Supernova Studio

    Convert Sketch into iOS, Android and React apps in minutes

    Zachary Will SyA 17 y/o who just ❤️ to innovate! · Written
    I have used many Sketch to iOS/React conversion apps previously and turns out to be not what I expected. Kind of gave up my hope on such apps. When I saw Supernova, thought it to be another of these apps, but their website kind of pulled me in & their AMAZING customer service made me try it out. Turns out trying it out was a great move as I was blown away by Supernova Studio as it exported a working Sketch mockup to an iOS app. It even has its own type of "Auto Layout"!
    CommentsShare
    • Steve HarmanProduct Manager (web & mobile)

      Game-changer is an oft over-used term, but surely in this case it's appropriate?

      Supernova isn't another 'get app quick' tool that simply spits out some dubious quality binary, it's a finely tuned and fully featured Sketch > native (or ReactN) code creator that bridges the ridiculous gap which exists between UI design and app development.

      Read through their feature list and add up how many hours just *one* of them will save you on your next app project.

    • A long time ago I was following the development of this program by the creative and distinguished team, and frankly after his experience several times, I found that this program is one of the best programs that make the design a project ready for the three platforms known (ios,android,react)

      This in itself is very distinctive.

      The way the program works is very easy and does not require much effort to learn.

      The method of responsive to the design in the program is very good

      I've been using Station since it's very beginning (9 months ago). I use it now on a daily basis.

      As a designer, I have on my desktop my Sketch, and of course my Station. It centralize all my work (InVision, Slacks, Gmail, Notifications, Trello... 300+ apps already, so crazy!). So no need to switch between thousand of tabs on chrome, or to set up my work everything morning. I just open Station and eveything is there : what I missed, my new assignments... It just makes you way more productive.

      Give it a try people and get Station now !

      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.

    • Brett GarwoodOwner, Red BAG Media

      Absolutely love Things, and utilize it as my go-to for managing all my tasks personally and professionally. Only issue I have revolve around collaboration features. Would love to fully merge all task management into Things, but cannot do this with collaboration features (sharing, commenting, attachments, etc.)

    I love how simple it is and how much I actually use it. In the past, I tried so many different note taking, note filing apps and they all felt so complicated and messy. I love how streamlined Bear is and how easy it is to format text quickly. You can use it for just taking notes or make it into a system for keeping all your information, images, links etc.

    • Justin DeardorffHunter/Gatherer of Ideas

      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.

    • Scot KruegerFounder of Krutech.com

      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.

      I recommend Asana to everyone who is trying to get a more organized life.

      It's good to everything, it's free (until 15 members) and you can choose from 2 different styles: list or board. You can create unlimited projects, you can share tasks between projects with a click, there are chat boxes in every task, it's user friendly and their help forum is ultra helpful even if you never payed a penny to them.

      I can't live without Asana. Just the most amazing thing ever.

      I've used a few project management tools in the past and Asana is the only one that makes me genuinely happy and more productive (at work and with my side hustles).

      I can't recommend this tool enough for its ease of use, features and user experience. As a cherry on top, Asana's vision to help teams collaborate and do their best work is one that I can personally identify with!

    • We've been using LeadHonestly for the better part of this year after moving from another service. We're a small tight-knit team of 10-ish people. That familiarity led to assumptions and the same two people getting together are going to quickly run out of new ideas of things to talk about.

      LeadHonestly provides us the opportunity to explore those unspoken assumptions and makes for better relationships all around.

      My manager utilized this tool for over a dozen of our 1x1's, each of which have led to juicy discussions with no time wasted. Our 30 min 1x1's have all been straight to the point to really get the core of where I'm at in my role. Answering LeadHonestly's questions has been a very effective method to vocalize my thoughts to my manager and as a result strengthened our relationship.

      Trello has helped me organize my projects for a while now. Since I work as a software engineer. An example of my boards is sort of where I create tasks then I classify them according to their current position on the sprint. For example I have tasks in different cards such as Icebox, Backlog, Current Iteration and Done. I have set deadlines all ranging from 2 weeks to someday :(. Overall a great product!

    • Kelly MillerProduct Marketing at Salesforce

      As we all know, it’s very rare to find a product that makes you stop and be like “This is awesome. Where has this been all my life!?” I’ve been using Tonkean daily for the the past 6 months, and am addicted. As a product marketing manager I work very cross-functionally and have always struggled with where and how to track and organize all the different things I work on. I’ve tried lots of task management, project management, and collaboration tools, but always ended up back in sticky notes, docs, spreadsheet, and calendar reminders to follow up. Tonkean changed this. While docs and spreadsheets are still useful for somethings of course, I now manage everything in Tonkean — my “worklist” of projects and action items, 1-1s with my boss, cross-functional campaigns, and success of key customers I’m working with. Tonkean allows me to pull in data from all different sources (which used to be manual) so I have a view of the key metrics I care about. It also automatically gathers the status of items at the right time from the relevant owner, and provides visibility of all updates and changes in Slack or via email. Oh! And did I mention it reminds me of things I wrote down but may have forgotten about? I could go on and on, but moral of the story is: get it, play with it, and I promise you’ll love it!

    • Wes GoldsteinVP, Client Engagement

      We have been using Tonkean since before it was in Beta. It has shortened our Weekly Delivery Meetings by providing an easy way to bring in Data from Jira and Salesforce and review instead of transposing data into a new format.

      The ability to integrate into Slack and gather updates where our Delivery Team already is has been a game changer. It keeps everyone from asking status and allows people to just work and provide updates when prompted. If I need an update out of cycle, I can use Tonkean to prompt for it.

      Tonkean has been critical for our team to grow. It has provided insight to our leadership at the right level as needed.
