Yes! This is really needed. You can tell this has been made by people who've actually worked in the science field. We used to keep our lab records in a bunch of different places and formats. Everyone in our lab would keep their notes in their own little piles and notebooks, making it impossible to quickly search or retrieve data across experiments or researchers. Dropbox sync and offline access looks great. Nice.

Findings was created by scientists turned indie software developers. It is truly an app made by scientists, for scientists. The Mac and iOS versions are developed by Charles Parnot, who turned to software development after many years as a scientist, a good chunk of them spent in the Bay Area. He came back to France in 2012 where he cofounded Findings. Alexander Griekspoor is co-founder and investor on the project. Before Findings, he created several other applications for researchers, including 3 ADA-winning apps. In particular, you may know Alex as the original creator of the wonderful Papers application. Marcello Luppi of Wrinkly Pea Design, also an ex-scientist, is a talented designer that works on both platforms. Findings is part of a small network of apps in the research and education market. Be sure to check out Manuscripts from Matias Piipari and Studies from Drew McCormack, as well as the apps from Nucleobytes.
