Questions about Roam Research

Frequently asked questions

According to some concerned users, Roam Research is somewhat lax in its data security and could do more.

Although they are a cloud service, they do not offer end-to-end encryption and this would leave any customer's private data immediately vulnerable if they were to be hacked.

No, Roam Research does not offer a free plan.

They do offer three different payment options:

  • Monthly Payments - $15/month
  • Annual Upfront - $13.75 a month
  • Believer - $500 for five years. This plan grants you first access to new features, community calls with the team, and priority support.

Roam Research is a note-taking application with one rather unique and compelling difference - it allows you to connect different notes to each other through what the company refers to as "Networked Thought."

What this essentially does is it creates and reveals relationships between your notes that you might not have before seen or realized. Roam Research is unique in note-taking apps in that it has a cult following among researchers, writers, and techies alike.

Roam Research received the following awards:

  • #1 Product of the Day on Product Hunt on January 11, 2020
