    Pros: 

    Multi-platform

    Cons: 

    Other solutions are more well known

    It's a really easy to use solution for tracking your projects and workload, regardless of how simple or complex a system you use for doing so.

    I enjoy it because it allowed me to start with a simple list, but then move to a visual representation over time.

    Pros: 

    Easy install, smooth and feature rich.

    Cons: 

    None so far

    Love the new desktop app for Zenkit. Have only tried on Mac OS but I am guessing even the Windows app would be smooth.

Hi ProductHunt! 👋 We’re super excited to be launching our desktop apps for Zenkit today. We really wanted to make sure we catered to as many of our users as possible, which meant making the desktop apps available on as many platforms as possible. That’s why we’ve built apps not only for Mac and Windows, but for Linux too! 💻 With the new Zenkit apps you can: - Create items from anywhere on your desktop with quick-add - Focus on your work in a beautifully distraction-free Zenkit window - Open multiple Zenkit windows to work on multiple collections at a time - Jump to your main Zenkit window with a shortcut - Stay productive, even when you’re offline Thanks for taking a look. We’d love to hear what you think, so please feel free to ask us anything!

So glad to see a Linux app for once :D What distros are supported?

@ilya_azovtsev Great question, Ilya! We tested on a fair few distributions, and the app supports Ubuntu 12.04 & later, Fedora 21 & later, Debian 8 & later, and Arch. That being said, there are loads of distributions so we might have missed some. If you run into any issues please contact service@zenkit.com and we'll sort it asap.

Hi Peter, great stuff, have been following Zenkit for a while now. How important do you see desktop apps in comparison to (only) browser based solutions and if highly important, do you think this will be the case in a 1-2 years still? Thanks!
@patprokesch Hi Patrick, Great question! Desktop apps were really highly requested by our users, and we want to make sure that Zenkit is available on any device, platform, or operating system that our users prefer. Building a desktop app also offers us more opportunity to interact directly with the OS, so there will be some additional features/advantages available in the desktop version later on. I don't see the desire for desktop apps disappearing any time soon. Many users and teams prefer the distraction-free environment of a desktop app over the tabs of a browser. That being said, we built ours as progressive web apps so that they can evolve quickly along with the web and mobile versions.

Cool! The quick-add shortcut sounds especially useful. How do I use it? (I'm on a mac)

Siobhan O'RorkeMaker@siororke · Marketing @ Zenkit
@emilkabisch Hey Emil! 👋 Quick add is Cmd+Shift+Space on Mac (Ctrl+Shift+Space on Win & Linux). The option to bring Zenkit to the front is Alt+Z on Mac, and Ctrl+Shift+Z on Win & Linux.
