"It's ideal for planning out your day, Bullet Journal style. [...] the combination of scheduling, tagging, and (plain text, portable) notes in one place makes it a true productivity tool."
"What makes this app truly unique is the use of Markdown, which really speeds up both taking notes and creating action items."
"If you love plain text notes, but hate that they have no way to integrate with your calendars and reminders, then you might just find this to be the perfect app."

Capture Your Thoughts

Open up today and get things off your mind. Quickly capture anything important: to-dos, details, journal entries, quotes, etc.

Your mind works much better if you write down everything and don’t have to hold it in your memory.

Editor Only view

Plan Your Day

Organize your tasks for the day by structuring them into headings and lists to get clarity and an overview of what needs to be done - Today.

You can also format your text with bold, italic, quotes and so on using the toolbar.

Use @tags and #tags to mark tasks you want to quickly look up later. For example, if you need to follow up with someone, use @tim or for projects #marketing.

Review and Re-Schedule

Chances are, at the end of the day some to-dos are still open or you collected a few ideas which need your attention. Take your time and review them at the end of the day or week and make a quick decision: cancel, re-schedule or finish them right now.

Use the month or week view for your reviews and to navigate through your calendar.
