Coda is a new type of document that blends the flexibility of documents, the power of spreadsheets, and the utility of apps into a single new canvas.
Around the web
Docs, sheets, apps, data ... it's all of them.Cons:
The first demo was kinda mind-boggling. Many more people are programmers than think they are - ever put a formula into an excel doc? A3 = A1 + A2. Congrats, you are a programmer.
Part of what makes excel and spreadsheets such a universal tool is the micro-programming anyone can do and therefore incredibly powerful.
So imagine if you brought that power to everything outside of spreadsheets. And reinvented spreadsheets too.
Take micro-programming and applied it to everything, suddenly you could do what feels like magic things for a document to be able to do. Reading through a few of the other reviews, that's why non-app developers are saying things like "it's my to-do list app that I created myself".
I'm thrilled to see where the journey goes from here.John Donham has used this product for one year.
It's everything you need inside one document! I can't wait for it to be available for all for collaborative workflows!Cons:
Some layout issues, like when card view is used, they populate vertically. Very inconvenient especially when compared to Trello. (Specifics)
While I haven't been exactly looking for a solution that Coda is trying to provide, I see this as a very effective tool in documentation. I definitely think this is a step up in project management tools, and it introduces the convenience factor that Google's family of products is lacking.
I've tried Notion as well but I find the table and formula approach that Coda has implemented to be much more flexible and useful. (That said, it's possible that they are trying to solve different problems.)Remington Chan has used this product for one week.
