Hey Product Hunt! 👋 Martin, RemNote co-founder here! As a student and researcher, I had become increasingly aware of how little I remembered after reading an article or completing a course. I was also frustrated with how hard it was to keep my thoughts, research, and projects organized. I needed a tool to streamline my thinking, connect ideas, and optimize my learning for the long term. RemNote is that tool - an all-in-one workspace to take notes, organize thoughts, learn anything, and grow knowledge. - 👨‍🎓 Students & learners use RemNote as a long-term learning platform, mastering content through note-taking, integrated spaced-repetition flashcards, PDF annotation, and knowledge-graphing. - 👨‍🔬️ Creators & writers use RemNote as an idea-generation platform, sparking ideas by leveraging references, [[backlinks]], portals, aliases, and graph views. - 👨‍🔧️ Thinkers and organizers use RemNote as a second-brain, staying organized with fast search, templates, to-dos, tags, and other simple-but-powerful organizational features. This is only the beginning 😉. Just last week, we released PDF annotation and alias features that tightly integrate with the rest of your knowledge base. This enables you to link source materials to your notes, your brain, and back again. Please, message us with feature requests! We hope you’ll check us out! Don't forget to download our desktop and mobile apps (with fully-offline options). We have early-bird pricing in effect for all Product Hunt users, as well. I’m excited to hear what you all think! Martin

@martin_schneider1 looks promising. i can not see it in the description nor landing page - is there a way to access study materials that someone else added?

@martin_schneider1 @vladojsem Yep - there's not a public portal yet, but you can publish a snapshot of notes/cards, and then send a friend a link that allows them to import that into their account. For example, all of our tutorials are written and published within RemNote itself. https://www.remnote.io/documenta...

@martin_schneider1 I think: need to upgrade the to do options, expand the options to rem marked as to-do. I know it is not the purpose from app, but it will help to better organize and keep notes as tasks, remembering us. At all, keep the great job and recurring updates!

RemNote is an excellent tool for learning and retaining knowledge. It outpaces its competitors in this space - I know because I've tried them all. If you're a student or a lifelong learner, this tool will enable you to learn quicker and retain that information for weeks, months, and years to come. I am not affiliated with RemNote; however, I am excited to find a tool that incorporates cognitive science research on how learning works as a foundation for the product. It also includes Sönke Ahrens' principles on making 'smart notes' - this has changed my approach to making notes. These are just some of the core features of this product; there are many more. I've been a RemNote user for several months, in addition to a great product, the rate of new features getting released by the team is impressive.

I will keep it simple :) I'm one of the top students of my class... I study I get A's, and then... I forget. This is not education. We should be learning to make connections, to be the best professionals we can be. This app has the potencial to change your life as a student and a professional. It's not perfect yet, far from that, but it is already the best. Try it, give them time for fine tunning some things and change the way you learn forever! 🎈🎉🎈🎉

Much underhyped tool compared to other products existing today that deal with note-taking, thinking, productivity etc. I have used the pre-launched version for less than 6 months but am already impressed by how fast RemNote kept progressing during this time. I started using it to learn a new language and manage what I read everyday, now I use it for almost all types of instance that need me to plan, connect ideas and think deeper. Try it for yourself. You will find at least one area of your life you can use it on and then wonder how you have been doing what you have been doing for so long.

@marcus_tan2 Thanks Marcus! Useful to hear that starting with learning just one thing and then expanding from there worked well for you.

It's truly an amazing product. A must-have for students, and at least a must-try for everyone else.

A really good product! It can seem complex. But then you dive in it (just like Notion) it's the most powerful app. It's a mix between Roam and Anki. In fact, the app able you to create flashcards and link multiple pages! + the team is active and nice. There's many new features each month and an impressive community on Discord to discover the app. - no IOS app now, it's coming and Remnote is accessible via safari. If you're a student, an academic, a compulsive learner, then Remnote IS FOR YOU!

A huge congrats to the team on the launch! I’m in RemNote literally all day. Aside from my Internet browser, there are 0 apps that I use more than I use RemNote. So excited to see it on PH today! A Examples Of My Key Use Cases: - For ideas I want to store in my mind for future use and thinking, I make flash cards out of them (things like mental models, life philosophies, important facts). Everything else goes into my database for retrieval when needed. Think of my flash cards as info I’d like to store in RAM and the rest in my hard drive - Whenever I want to brainstorm new ideas, I go find all the ideas that may be relevant to whatever I’m brainstorming. Let’s say I’m brainstorming about community building. I’d pull up my rems for community, moderation, moderator, and others that are relevant. There I can go through every note, reading, conversation I’ve ever logged into RemNote about those topics. Whatever I come up with in this brainstorming session goes back into RemNote and will surface in the future. Advice For Those Getting Into It: - Startup simple. There are a lot of features and a ton of tools to learn. It can be overwhelming. It took me at least a month to design my full work flow, get used to all the keyboard shortcuts + powerups + set up all my templates. I didn’t do it all at once. Started with a simple case, just taking notes on conversations, added use cases on top of that as I went. - If you’re looking to get into building your “Second Brain”, Tiago Forte has some good free and paid resources on this. You can look into his PARA structure for how he organizes his database. The book “How To Take Smart Notes” is also incredible for learning how to take notes and how to learn - shoutout to UMNiK from the RemNote Discord for that tip - There are sometimes bugs and issues. Premium does come with automatic backups and there are many ways to manually backup otherwise. Their customer support is also pretty responsive. Finally, one plug. If you use my link to sign up -> HERE <- you get a free month of premium and I’m happy to personally show you how I’d recommend using it and various tricks and structures I picked up. Even if you don’t use that link, still happy to share everything I've picked up - just DM me on Twitter

@sydney_liu_sl Thanks, Sydney! Totally agree with "Start simple" - focusing on that advice one of the biggest things I've learned from talking to users.

I have been using RemNote for studying since June 2020. In retrospect, the program has developed incredibly fast. If there was any kind of issue, the developers always answered within less than 48 hours and fixed bugs as fast as possible. Before I discovered RemNote, I studied with Anki and took notes with Roam Research. Now I have a place, where I can merge all those features into one program. It's amazing!

@t_b2 Thanks for all of the support Tobias!

RemNote has been in beta for more than a year now and I am proud to have been with them for most of that time! It’s heavily underrated and under appreciated. Where it excels ? - it’s hands down THE best app to learn just about anything ! It’s the perfect blend of note-taking (bi-directional and outliner based) and SRS. It’s the smoothest way to internalise any knowledge and keep them connected in a graphical database. What it already has ? - A powerful WYSIWYG editor (outliner) with best-in-class aliasing features in built. - The smoothest outlining and bi-directional note taking system with multi-window support (you can go limitless with the help of portals) - The best PDF annotation tool you can find in the market ! - Daily Note Styled Journaling - All-in-one Personal Knowledge Management - Customisable into a personal task and project management tool - P.A.R.A system compatibility ;) - Stand-alone desktop app for Mac windows and android. iOS and iPadOS very soon. - a very generous free for lifetime plan and also a scholarship for the PRO plan. - Free publishing of notes with collaboration soon to come 🤩 - Zero lock in feature : you can export your data in multiple formats and can be used in other available tools in the market. The list can go on ! It’s so feature packed that you really can’t get enough of it ;) What I love about it ? - the lovely community ! 🥰 - very friendly dev team. - the API integrations (Airr, Twitter etc., ) - the stability of development ! It’s the fastest and most stable development timeline I have seen in this niche. - their commitment to empower students and life long learners I wish you guys the best for the long run 🥳🥳🥳 Like countless others in the community, I am here to stay till the end ! 🥰

Weaver MarquezTechnoghost and new technologies.
I've been using RemNote for six months now and couldn't be happier with its direction. I use it as my personal knowledge tool for autodidactic research, courses, and some parts of my teaching business. Rems are a much more versatile core design than blocks and pages, and the pdf annotation are the best of any I've seen for PC. I keep a close eye on the networked notetaking tool ecosystem and these guys have been able to release so many features before others even get it on their roadmap, it's wild. The combination of Mike and Matty's communication skills and the overall all-in-one convenience of RemNote convinced me that they have what it takes to bring networked notetaking to a very wide audience.
