I thought note taking using the standard Mac app would be my default but since using Thought Train I honestly didn't realise that there was in fact an easier way. Love it :)

Pros:

Super easy to use

Cons:

Not yet a mobile app

I've been testing the new version for a few weeks and it's fast become an integral part of my workflow. It's the perfect companion for an avid list/note taker.

Pros:

Super simple and clean, easy to access, dark mode

Cons:

None that I can think of

Thanks Tom, I remember sending it to you, I'm glad you're still using it. It's proven such a nice middle ground even for me, between my brain and my many many task managers!

Been lucky to be testing v2 over past month or so. What a big upgrade since the initial launch ticking pretty much all the popular feature requests boxes.

Pros:

Drag n Drop notes, Markdown & Dark Mode <3

Cons:

Can't think of anything.

Great to have some outlet for thoughts and ideas that are tidy on your desktop

Pros:

Excellent way to log and access the ideas I had or things I need to do.

Mobile app would be awesome for ideas on the move

Rob thanks mate, drop me a line and I'll send you a link to the mobile beta app! :)

Tried first version of Thought Train which was good, v2 has some well thought out improvements and is super intuitive.

Pros:

Shortcut access key is a winner! Not being tied to a web browser is a breath of fresh air in a word dominated by browser based apps.

Cons:

Not really a con, but a mobile app / version would be great.

Beauty in it's simplicity! Fills a gap between built in Notes and a clipboard manager I use.

Pros:

Simplicity

Cons:

None that I can see. It fills a void.

Thanks Wayne. I'm working on a mobile PWA at the moment, really just to test the waters and see how the app feels and can improve on a handset.

Super simple to use.

Pros:

I used to use notes on Mac and TT2 is far more user friendly and save me having to switch between programs all the time.

Cons:

None.

Thanks Alex, just drop me a line when you're used to the app or if you need any help!

Ohh wow, yet another monthly subscription... Fairly basic app, no server-side features, and crawl-speed development process. Why would anyone pay MONTHLY for this? This whole subscription ecosystem is really getting bizarre: every joe who can code an app on a napkin wants to get paid monthly for it. Insane.
