    Notion 2.0

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

    It replaced most of the productivity apps I was using for a single one.

      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.

    • Naman BhutaniSales Specialist

      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.

      LOVE IT! It seems super simple for a non-coder like me, but at the same time enables me to include most functionalities I'd want to add in a landing page.

      Kudos to the team.

      I love the simple and useful design great UI and I agree with the quote "its the simplest way to build a website." Excellent simplification of a difficult process.

    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"!

      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

    Station

    One app to rule them all

    Was using Franz for a long time but Station has way more integrations.

    • Amrith ShanbhagCommunity at Product Hunt & Feathrd

      Having been a user of Franz for a long time now, I'm glad I found Station cause it has way more functionality :) Thank you for making this!

      Although, I'm not sure on how I can mute particular apps from sending me notifications 🙃

      EDIT 1: Multiple instances such as Twitter do not actually separate two accounts; if I log out of one, it logs out of the other.

      P.S: I'll edit this review once I use it for a bit longer :)

    • Meghan RegiorDesigner @eFounders

      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 !
