About

Notion for Android is finally here!

It's your all-in-one workspace for notes, tasks, wikis, and databases. It also works offline and syncs great with the browser/iOS/Mac/Windows app!

Notion is definitively a huge contender to every state-of-the-art collaboration product out there. It will be interesting to see how this new fight between Airtable, Notion, and Coda plays out. It is the most powerful amongst the three in terms of layout flexibility and clean interface, although lagging behind in terms of computing and visualizing data.

I'd love to see better API integrations, and possibly (putting this one out there, hoping that the founders see this), an ability for users to query a Workspace via GraphQL.

Pros:

Powerful, elegant and simple platform for personal and team in-context communication, action planning and internal/external documentation.

Cons:

Databases are not as advanced as Airtable's (group view missing). Regular formatted tables don't exist either.

Notion is one of the most powerful products I've used so far. My productivity has increased 10x.

I got early access to their Android beta and man! I love it. So much of my work now happens from my phone. It's great.

Pros:

Simple, Elegant, Productivity Power House, Super simple organising

Cons:

Missing some really good integrations like Google Calendar, Zapier and others.

The Notion for Android experience is fantastic!

I've been using Notion since beta (about 14 months) and Notion for Android since Beta batch 1 (about 3 months) and from the very first day that I tried Notion it has been in my top five tools. I love the product overall and it was actually a great experience in the mobile browser before any apps were available, though I was jealous when they released the iOS app in September ;-D. I have been a premium user since January.

I love just about everything in Notion. Especially the active development. New features are well thought out, useful, and communication is great. My favorite aspect of Notion is that it is a truly personal experience. The user decides how to build the ecosystem and the customizations and options feel endless. The Android app is very close to the desktop experience with most features available and the UI+UX solid. Visually I prefer the web or desktop because I appreciate seeing a broader landscape of my choices/data but I haven't found many things that I need to do on Android that are not available to me. The app is speedy and has been reliable since the day I installed the first beta. It seems to be light and never shows up as a resource hog on any of my devices.

I don't find much lacking in the app. Anything that is not there I have failed to notice. If there are missing elements they are probably features that I wouldn't or haven't needed to use on mobile or they are also missing on desktop/web..

As far as the overall tool, I find the most significant missing feature to be a web-clipper/easier way to quickly get data into the system. I continue to use Milanote, Evernote, and other curation tools because of the web-clippers.

Some minor gripes:

*Tries to do a wide variety of functions, maybe too many. Then again maybe not :-)

*The addition of charts and tables is a cool idea but a long way to go to match Airtable. Also missing all of the shareable views that make that tool great.

*Not a great experience for true task management especially with passive reminders and lack of integrations with email and calendars. It is not going to replace a Wunderlist/Todoist or even a Trello/Asana for that type of functionality. At least not yet.

I use Notion as my "final destination"/knowledge repository. Everything I do or collect in other tools eventually makes its way into Notion, whether by import or link. Notion is my master collection. Very pleased with Notion, happy to see them featured again on PH, and wish them continued success!

Pros:

Clean, simple design, Intuitive, Active development, Extremely personal and customizable, Generous free account level

Cons:

Missing an easier way to quickly get data into the system (web-clipper on desktop, share on mobile.) Not great for task management/reminders

This is probably the best task management and note taking app out there. They have kept the UX relatively simple to start (I hope they continue to do so!!!) and there is still room for improvement based on community feedback (which they are hot on responding to!)

Great app, so happy it's on android now. about time!!!

Pros:

Beautiful, clean design. Freeform creative and visual task management to suit each individual personally.

Cons:

Few bugs still need smoothing out

Been using Notion now for about 2 months, and the Android app for a month now. I love how clean the app is and that I can get almost everything done with just my keyboard.

Pros:

Simple, Clean, Elegant, Create Features

Cons:

Missing some integrations, some minor features I would love to see, offline functionality in Android app

beautiful markdown-based notes

Pros:

best note-taking app I've ever used

Cons:

API not yet released, developer says soon!

It's the best wiki we've ever used. Competition doesn't even come close, it's in a league of it's own.

Pros:

Saved our company from siloed knowledge.

Cons:

iPad app needs love to match the capabilities of the desktop version. Otherwise it's perfect.

A one-in-all toolbox. It's intuitive and widely customizable., making it useful for a wide amount of usages. I've organized characters, stories, website content and made Q&As that look clean and pretty. I also love their table block, which enables you to make a little database that you can freely sort using your own tags and fields, such as date, files, links, relations and so much more. This block can also be turned into a kanban-board such as Trello, which gives you a very visual overview grouped by the field you desire.

When I joined the beta, I was amazed by how similar it looked and functioned to the desktop and browser view, and had almost no troubles when using it. It's also very easy to give feedback, report bugs or come with suggestions, and the crew is friendly and helpful.

Pros:

Clean, pretty, customizable, great customer support, versatile. They also have great options for working cross-platform.

Cons:

It's a fairly new product, so some features are not yet implemented; i.e. the way images are managed still needs some polishing.

LIke it in general.

Pros:

Like it in general as a mobile notes viewer.

Cons:

Still can't edit on my Anrdoid device. Text goes crazy with duplication.

I have been an advocate of Notion since the beginning. It has replaced my notes apps, and help me to organise projects. I am really happy to be able to use Notion on the mobile offline

Pros:

Easy to use, clean, great functionality, amazing development team

Cons:

Nothing so far

Proud Greek Computer aficionado :-)

My new favorite app, using it in all platforms with no problems :-)

Pros:

Elegant Powerful Adapting Clean

Cons:

No web clipper at the moment :-(

There is no better tool for work organization, small team project management, and notes, than Notion.

Pros:

Easy to use and intuitive. You do most of your organizing by draging or using shortcuts.

Cons:

Takes some time to learn all the cool shortcuts and options.

I've been a heavy user for 1 year. It's hard to me to remind when I become so excited about using an app. Notion is something I've waiting for so long... As a professor, it is a priceless resource since I can add my students to any page so they can collaborate beautifully. It can easily replace Moodle and other educational products. It also works well as an intranet, knowledge base, project manager, CMS and more. I also use it as a GTD tool!

Pros:

Easy-to-use, very complete, flexible

Cons:

Offline mode still needs some love

CEO @ innovationcompany.co.uk

really interesting product. i'm in love with it. nothing else like it.

Pros:

integration of almost everything a small agency would need. so clean and simple to use.

it actually makes you smile to use it!

Cons:

needs some instant video between team members.

could also do with a screen sharing/recording integration. Loom would be great!

DigitalRefresh

I love the crap out of this tool, and I am jumping out of my seat for the new android lunch.

Pros:

This tool is the brain child of Evernote, and all the other note tools out there rolled into one. Tons of features to fill every need.

Cons:

Could use a refreshed look

Make boards, lists, notes and reminders in one place and don't be blocked by predefined views and setups

Pros:

Flexible with all Features to replace several apps at the same time including reminders

Cons:

Needs some trying around to choose the best template and setup

Pros:

Android baby

Cons:

None

Notion is the best tool out there for organizing information, and having it available on android is fantastic. Huge props to the whole team for making it happen!

Pros:

Powerful platform for managing notes and tasks. Does everything other apps can do, but all in one place (and looks great doing it!)

Cons:

Performance on android is acceptable but not fantastic

Technology does not stand still

very good

Pros:

good

Cons:

has not noticed

Product Manager / Product Marketer

Two things stand out. First, Notion is incredibly complete and capable. Second, it's fast - markdown and keyboard menus are simple and straightforward, and make a lot of sense.

Notion is the first application I've used for personal organization. I don't take advantage of its team collaboration features, but it's a fantastic tool for personal use.

Pros:

Fast, simple, clean. Super easy to get started with, and although it's incredibly flexible it isn't overwhelming.

Cons:

Nothing I'd consider a con, per se. They addressed two nice to haves in this release.
