@chrismessina but Clippy is a P1!
@chrismessina cool added to my writing collection
I’m not aware of a thing that Andre has made that I haven’t wanted or needed without knowing it.
@jmacias what other apps has he made that I don't know I need but most definitely probably do?

unclutter app is note taking, clipboard and project folders features at the same interface. It's easy, it's fast, flawless and yet not a menu bar app in case you dont want more menu bar icons (bartender to handle that)

Pros:

Simple

Cons:

Nothing special. Unclutter works and does more than tyke do with just a gesture.

Really like this. A modern version of the Mac OS notes widget. Is there a keyboard shortcut to invoke it?
I use Alfred + IA Writer for these use cases all the time
@blakesamic What's the workflow? Does IA saves everything that I type in Alfred without the need of manual process of opening IA and then creating new doc?
@parwinder IA is a light enough app that Alfred can open it super quickly. So I just use Alfred to open IA and then start a new note with a keyboard shortcut. Very fast overall. Much lighter than opening Evernote for example.
