Schema

Awesome knowledge management for teams from your GDrive 🤓

4.4/5
About

Schema is a beautiful cloud drive that allows you to store and manage all your files (PDFs, Images, MS Word, links, Google docs etc.) within a context. Collaborate with teams and organise your knowledge in a clean structure.

I believe Schema can be very helpful for making good notes that improve the study experience afterwards. In particular, I think it helps to learn faster, although studying is not the only way to use it. Any kind of notes can be taken and shared

Pros:

Design is clear and makes it very helpful to study afterwards

Cons:

No easy way of importing previous notes and no way of writting equations

Fantastic. I've been looking for a clean, notes app with easily condensible bullets, for forever. Sure it's highly subjective but Schema has native support for the way I love to take notes: beginning with a condensed outline and expanding on topics that I have a lot to say about. I love that the note taking window is clean and empty.

My cons are wishlist features, and I'll caveat by saying I approach this as a worker, not a student. My thoughts are based on Schema as a note taking tool, not as an educational content or lesson delivery product.

Pros:

Collapsible and expandible bullets. Distraction free interface. Solid tutorial.

Cons:

No markdown. Would love to drag and drop bullets.

Hi Jordan, thank you for the review! On your personal notes, you can drag and drop bullets! Its just not possible for public notes. Just click on the dot and drag it to the position you want! :)

I came across Schema during the freshers fair at Oxford last year. I am impressed by its simple and elegant design. I love how you can include PDFs and images on your notes and see them parallel to the notes or inline with the text. The explore note features is also really cool, you can find amazing notes using it!

Pros:

The collapsible bullet point structure is amazing! It makes my notes very easy to read and edit!

Cons:

None so far.

It's as if Medium were to design a note-taking app. Pure delight.

Cons:

Too simple?

It’s such a great experience using Schema. I love how all my images can be beautifully organized along with texts. Life saver! and look forward to joining the knowledge community!

Pros:

Best platform to manage images-texts, great learning community

Cons:

More features needed

Sometimes select command note (backspace) doesn't work bc it will trigger the browser's Previous page so cant delete a txt row. And Ctrl-U for file upload triggers Inspect Element so sometimes using buttons is needed, I don't know when it does this exactly, seems random.

Pros:

Very clear and fast in usage. Good clear interface

Cons:

Not much storage for free and sometimes commands don't work

Gu Seann, thanks a lot for your feedback! We've just released a major update to our backend system. Perhaps give it a try and see if it's better now?

It's an excellent product with potential. It didn't meed my very specific needs, but I think that it can overtake Notion. As others have mentioned, the lack of Markdown support is definitely a con. Still, I'm definitely going to re-evaluate it for when I outgrow Vim+Markdown. Also, I typed feedback into chat, and @deqianjia responded, which was a very nice human touch.

@afzhou Thank you very much for your kind feedback Andrew! Much appreciated. Feel free to get in touch with me again if there is anything else!

Excited about the new sharing feature and the possibilities it opens.

Pros:

Potential to be the Wikipedia of specialized knowledge.

Cons:

None.

I don't support Google-only authentication. I strongly recommend providing more options such as OpenID, Twitter, and email-based.

Pros:

Looks nice

Cons:

Google Auth is the only login option

Hi Jason, thanks a lot for leaving your review. It's still very much in beta and we are actively working to add new log in methods to it. Please bear with us for the moment and stay tuned.

Stumbled across this app when searching for a back-to-school notetaking and data depository. Schema is very easy to use and easy on the eyes. Am enjoying playing around in it as I add my upcoming course modules.

Pros:

Gorgeous UI

Cons:

None yet, would love to be able to copy and paste images rather than upload only.

Thanks a lot Yasmin for reviewing us! We really appreciate your positive feedback :) Please do let me know if there is anything else we can do to make the user experience even better.
I had an agreement with myself - if I were ever to use a knowledge organiser it must have these features. Now, I found all I had imagined in Schema.
