The notes app for creative work.
For the research, thinking and planning behind your next great piece of work.
I'm a non-technical co-founder of an app to help small business plan and track all their advertising. I wear a lot of hats. I'm also a visual thinker.
I need to spread things out and see how they all fit together. I need to be able to see the big picture and then dive into the details and I need to be able to do that fluidly and frequently on a variety of subjects. I really wanted to be able to use my entire screen real estate for this purpose.
I remembered seeing Milanote on Product Hunt when it was an idea and not yet available. I signed up for it and happily paid for the upgrade. It's the perfect app for me and I use it every day.
The feature I like best is being able to upload links for the content I curate. When I'm ready to learn about a subject, I have great content to choose from and a place to write down my thoughts. I can add images and notes and go from subject to subject. I can clear out my email fast and that is worth the money alone.
I would suggest you try Milanote because it can make your life so much easier.Pros:
I love that I can go as deep or as wide as I want on any subject.Cons:
Can't change the font size.
Absolutely love this product! I've been working with this tool for about a year now and have seen it grow with new capabilities. The Milanote team is really helpful you can normally chat with them directly at any point in the day. But outside of the service the tool itself is just a life saver. I'm a big picture, abstract thinker and normally tackle my projects from a high level and then work down into the details and this tool allows me to do just that. I establish a skeleton of my core ideas and how they connect to one another and then I can start digging in without fussing too much about the style because that comes easy.
Right now this feels and acts like a brainstorming board and I would love to see the capability to jump into map style presentations where one can pan in and out of topics.
I've played around with the tool both on Chrome and the Mac App. I've found that I have less hiccups with the web version, on the App there seems to be a bit more of a lag and it just feels less seamless. But really I'm just being really particular when I say that.Pros:
Style, Consistent Improvements, VersatilityCons:
A few issues with the app
There are so many PM tools out there that it can get overwhelming. Right off the bat this is aesthetically appealing and I can see how it will enhance my existing workflow. Excited to jump in and use it!Pros:
Beautiful interface, well-designed templates. Easy to get started and useCons:
No iOS app yet, free plan is limiting
