I bought this app (It's pay what you want model) because I was looking for an alternative to Stickies. Good work!

Pros:

Simple and works well.

Cons:

None so far.

I've been using this for a few days now, and I have to say it's fantastic.

If anyone is like me and has a lot of balls flying in the air most days, it's super useful to when the 'wait, what was I working on again' thought pops up in my brain (like all the time) to do a quick glance at the top menu bar and go 'ah, there it was' – and then it's exxxtra satisfying to check it off.

A+ from me

*saying that, the annoyance of the carousel means I really force myself to pick one task to complete, so that's kinda nice => would be nice if the second items would just live in the little drop down though so once one task is finished, I could just swiftly move on to the next without re-gathering my planning thoughts.

Pros:

subtle yet effective, my favourite kind of product

Cons:

really don't like the carousel* if there's more than one item

Gosh thanks for the great review! You can turn the carousel off by just de-selecting notes and leaving one highlighted (or leave none highlighted and you’ll just have then tracks) “Completed” notes live in the archive too, so if you click “Show archive” you can fetch them again. Go ya covered 🤣

DOWNLOADED - twice. paid once. Can't type in anything. Can't create an account - HELP!!

Pros:

NONE

Cons:

CAN'T GET IT TO WORK; CAN'T LOG IN...

Thanks I've responded to your email and forwarded your account issue to the team at Gumroad.

Loved the simplicity of the concept - while other apps try to differentiate by adding more and more, Marc has built out a functional tool that addresses a very key problem of switching between apps/tabs.

Pros:

Simple and effective.

Cons:

Would love to see a drag and drop to re-order tasks as a user.

You can rearrange the Though Train menu bar icon by holding CMD and dragging the icon left/right.

Pros:

The design makes it feel like stock MacOS. Plenty of subtle features make it easy to track and organize my notes.

Cons:

My thoughts can't be trained. 😎

I don't often use menu bar tools, but this one is a must have. It is the nicest to-do/note taking app I've ever used, and the fact that it's right in the menu bar makes it easy to use regardless of what I'm doing in other applications.

Pros:

Really easy to use. Simple but super effective.

Cons:

None so far.

Simple to download, easy to use

Pros:

Great user interface, easy to use!

Cons:

Haven't found one yet
