Quiver

A notebook built for programmers on your Mac

Alberto- thinker · dreamer · finder
Best note taking app for programmers
Mohammed Ridwan- Software Engineer @ShopifyPlus.
I use Quiver for every single note taking need, whether it is making to-do lists or doing research on a project. Quiver handles LaTeX, Markdown, Code so well! Also pair this with Lightshot Screenshot and you have the perfect research scrap-booking tool.
Anirudh- SDE Intern @Hasura. GSoC '17 @Haiku.
This doesn't solve the main task of daily notes, I use this to jot down the highlights of what I learn/see online. It's built for programmers, supports LaTeX, Markdown and Code view with line numbers. Love to have all these features at disposal though I don't use them all.

Evernote Scannable

Multi-purpose scanning app from Evernote (iPhone)

Calvin Dass- I'm just here for the ride.
This has made going paperless so much easier! It takes 3 seconds to capture images, it enhances them automatically so they look like they've been scanned, and the PDFs or images can be shared with most other apps (I save mine to Google Drive or Box). It also integrates with Evernote and can automatically save contact information from business cards when you … See more
Graham Campbell- 🚀 new ventures, faster
Because pictures of text should be searchable by text & easily transformed into PDFs from your 📱.
Nick Berry- Chief Hustler
I absolutely love it, use it almost every day, but my work only provides us with Android devices. So I have to use my personal phone for work.

Unclutter

Access notes, files & pasteboard clips quickly on your Mac

Eugene Krupnov
Great helper for everyday workflow. Helps storing and handling temp stuff and often used files, writing notes and managing the clipboard history. Quick, simple and lightweight. Don't know how you guys work without it :)
mark!- Social Media Manager, Red Bull TV
Essential tool as I do a ton of copying/pasting in my role as a Social Media Manager. It also is a godsend if you route your screenshot folder to Unclutter's dropdown folder. I have my directs download Unclutter, aText, BetterSnapTool as soon as they start working for me.
Eugene Krupnov
Best for super-fast note taking. Plain text, quick search. Always available with one single gesture.

Five Minute Journal App

The simplest, most effective way to be happier every day

Fadeke Adegbuyi- Social Media & Content Marketing @Doist
This is an awesome tool to practice gratitude and mindfulness. It really shouldn't take you more than 2.5 minutes in the morning and 2.5 minutes in the afternoon to answer a set of questions that prime you for the day and let you reflect on how it unfolded.
John Ababseh- Epiphany Enthusiast
I like this app, super simple and easy to use!
The Hustle
When I first heard about the Five Minute Journal, I thought it was a complete scam. Their website said this journal can "prime your brain" and "cultivate gratitude." But how can a journal make you happier? I've never used a physical journal to write down what I was feeling.
Idownloadblog
The Five Minute Journal app description claims it to be the simplest and most effective way to become happier in five minutes a day. Having used the physical journal for several months, I can definitely witness some positive changes in my life, which are ultimately making me happier.

I loved using this for a long time!! Although I'm bad at keeping to-do lists so have defaulted to Apple Notes (and to be honest, its perfect for me)

Second using paper for sketching as well. You can add images and mark it up - if that's what you're looking for.
Ryan Hoover- Founder, Product Hunt
Have you tried Paper by FiftyThree? Since its initial launch, they added sketching functionality, optimal for iPads.
