Notion for iOS
A collaborative editor for notes, tasks, and wikis
A magical editor that blends real-time documents, wiki-like organization, and lightweight tasks into a single tool that can handle pretty much all of your knowledge and collaboration needs.
It also works offline and syncs great with the browser/Mac/Windows app!
Amazing user experience. It's easy to structure any kind of document as thoughts flow through your brain, and it does that beautifully.Cons:
Doesn't work offline. Search engine needs some love. You don't get notified when collaborators update documents.
It's the best note taking app by far and I use it for almost everything, from planning, writing documents, note taking, issue tracking, literally whatever... It grows steadily and it's well supported, with new features coming out frequently. Can't wait for Notion to support offline data and receive improvements to it's search engine and notification system. All of which is coming up next 😊Andrea Di Marco has used this product for one year.
Absolute control over your documentsCons:
I wish they'd power through their backlog faster? 😂
I cannot recommend Notion. As soon as I hit my trial limit I upgraded without hesitation. I'm using Notion to deliver design documentation with a slew of different kinds of deliverables. Notion is the only solution I've come across that actually allows me to deliver these items in one cohesive link, rather than sending out a link dump of many different services.
The iOS companion just makes this service even more powerful. If you're not using Notion, I'm sad for your productivity.Aaron Wade has used this product for one year.
Tons of features, awesome UX, fast support.Cons:
I use Notion with my teammates. We are really happy using it for collection data, planning tasks and creating docs. 5/5!
But at home I still prefer Evernote, because it's natively coded and always works fast.Alexander Isora 🦄 has used this product for one month.
Finally on iOS!Cons:
No share extension.
Very powerful for a notes app. Love the ability to embed link previews, media and code easily with automatic formatting.
The big thing missing here is a share extension to push content into Notion from other apps.
Drag'n'drop works well within the app, but haven't been able drop content into a page from another app even though it shows the + indicating it can accept the content.Matthew Munger has used this product for one day.
Unique and super robust content editor. It's just a really powerful tool, and the iOS version makes it accessible from anywhere.Cons:
None to speak of so far. Very impressed with it.
I've been playing with Notion on and off since close to when it first launched. I've always loved its approach to content creation. It's unique but intuitive, and well designed for mixed media content. When my team decided to stop using Zendesk—which included a knowledge base—we decided to use Notion for our knowledge base. It's been great and I wish we'd been using Notion for our KB all along.
There are a lot of content creation tools and text creation tools out there. I find that most tools leave something to be desired when it comes to the content creation experience. Oftentimes users are forced to adapt how they write and work to fit a tool's design instead of the tool being adaptive enough to fit users' varied writing/working styles. There's a constant struggle between the user and the tool, and this struggle creates cognitive gaps between the user and their work. This results in the work taking longer to create and any joy the user may/could have had when creating the work is lost. With Notion, I feel like the tool is sort of a partner or collaborator in my work. It's simple enough to allow for a good writing workflow, but robust enough to make my content as complex as I want and add the finishing touches. It also looks super nice 👌 .
The team behind Notion is the most responsive that I've ever encountered as well. They're kind, smart, and helpful. They've always listened to any feature requests with great consideration. Can't say enough good things about them (looking at you Alvin and Haris!).Jeremy Bauer has used this product for one year.
Flexible tool that can adopt to whatever you want to use it forCons:
touching/dragging items when meaning to scroll
Notion is amazing! It is by far the best tool we started using with our team in the past year. The iOS App is just a perfect translation of the webapp with additional handy keyboards.Robert van Hoesel has used this product for one year.
Fantastic UI, Crazy Flexibility, and a highly engaged support team.Cons:
Notion is young and doesn't yet have the level of integration as Evernote or Bear.
Notion is by far the best note taking tool I have ever used and they did it with 1 simple concept: Flexibility. If you are like me, you want to stay organized, but when taking a note you often just need a place to quickly jot something down. Notion gives you the best of both worlds by making it effortless to add notes and then organize them later. Random thoughts can become lists, lists can change into pages and before you know it you have a whole wiki of well organized ideas that evolved with the project. The mobile app is just another fantastic addition to the already easy to use web platform.
The Notion team is constantly making upgrades, listening to user feedback, and keeping users engaged with their team. I am very excited to see the what the future holds for Notion.Scott Hill has used this product for one year.
It has replaced my use of Evernote, I really like the interface and flexibilityCons:
None that I can think of now
I started using it a while back to save drafts of blog posts, explore new ideas, take notes from books I was reading, etc. Really powerful and versatile :)Guillermo Horno has used this product for one year.
Fantastic tool that nails the gaps that tools like Quip, Gdoc, and Evernote miss.Cons:
Notion is still young, some small buggy things.
Notion is great for Organization, team collaboration, tasks and key commands. I have moved all of my work docs here and much of my personal documents and plans.Joe David has used this product for one month.
Finally, 1 tool for everything!Cons:
Lacks multi-tasking support on iPad in iOS 11
I just setup my Team on Notion. They say it best: With so many tools, it's hard to keep everyone on the same page.
I love their templates. Notion beats Dropbox Paper, Quip, Evernote, Google Drive, and Asana.
1. No more messy folders. Everything in one place.
2. Templates for everything!
3. Markdown support.
4. Focus on collaboration.Justin E. Harris has used this product for one day.
Offline mode is about the only con I can think of.
Notion can do it all. When other apps have said that, they'd have some glaring weak points where they'd stretched themselves thin. Notion has none of those.
Notion is like a LEGO table for your content.Klein Maetschke has used this product for one month.
Beautiful, flexible, free.Cons:
I literally can't think of one.
I've used Notion for a long time now and it's my favorite tool to organize thoughts, documents, etc. I implemented it at work for a digital studio handbook. The level of flexibility is insane. Maybe my favorite part is the team behind it, which feels like they're always working and excited about their product. So far the app works perfectly for me, but I'm sure there will be bugs here and there that will get squashed. Couldn't recommend it more.Amar Džomba has used this product for one year.
Refreshingly elegant, flexible take on notes and task managementCons:
iOS version's UX has some room for improvement
After one day of use, I'm already becoming a big fan and moving a lot of my workflow from multiple other apps into it.
Desktop UX (I've tested Mac and web) are very smooth, as is the new iOS version… with one small exception I've noticed so far: the process for moving elements ("blocks" in Notion's parlance) is, at least to me, something less than consistent. But I'm sure this can be improved in a future update.Bjorn Larsen has used this product for one day.
The freedom to build, the modularity of content blocks, the amazingly simple UI, how my information architecture can easily grow as I buildCons:
Offline mode would be great
This is going beyond a page/document-based cloud tool, like you would do with Drive for example. And because Notion is focused at providing the building blocks, you can easily switch from solo building/thinking to complex collaborations.Pascal Wicht has used this product for one year.
Great mobile version of an essential online apCons:
Can't yet search through Spotlight
My preferred note taking and record keeping app. Still finding the best ways to integrate with the platform but this feels like a full fledged mobile implementation of the great web app. Would love to see it take advantage of iOS integrations more but plenty of time for updates!John Bannister has used this product for one month.
Amazingly Simple. Elegantly Executed. Infinitely ScalableCons:
I need tables!
I've been using Notion for over a year - maybe more - to run our new business and standardize our processes. It's been AMAZING. I love the tool and can't imagine using anything else.Andrew Davis has used this product for one year.
All my project management in one place, block your pages!Cons:
Lack of mentions, templates and dark-mode.
Ever since I found Notion, my workflow has changed dramatically to using only this app; Trello, Asana, Google Docs are long gone. What I like the most is the blocking structure of Notion, where you can adjust any page according to its use, make it veery customizable.
What I'm lacking only, is the option to have templates so I can ease my workflow, some @mentions could help to work with others and dark-mode which they removed in one of the updates.
110% recommended!Sergio Sala has used this product for one year.
Flexible management of tasks/projects/wikis etc, without offering an overwhelming set of options to configure. Well supported.Cons:
Notion somehow manages to be an incredibly flexible tool for collaborating on tasks, projects and wikis without feeling like it's trying to do too much. It's a solid option for a team hub. Most task/project management apps separate task items from information items. Notion allows you to do it all in the same place. Bonus: easy exports and imports...Jacob Sam-La Rose has used this product for one year.
The Best UX For Document OrganizationCons:
Better Interactive for Developer
Our Company - Solis Lab - was used this awesome product for a few months. It improved our workflow so much, from training newbie, create document for each project until create a list of to-do things, integrate it with Slack and much more.
I hope they can improve much more for developer, cause we still reach a little bit bad experience in case putting code examples to notion.so.
Some of new features we should they can add more:
- Integrate with WordPress (why not?), to make sync between posts in Notion.so and WordPress.
- Import Google Docs (maybe they did, but I never check it).
Thanks for great product!

It is clean, clear and someone spent time on the UI - love that over everything elseCons:
Everything can be improved over time... but for the moment - this products is very cool!
The uses for Notion are nearly endless... and the fact that I can move and share material instantly... without any real hiccups was a very important consideration.Peter Young has used this product for one month.
