Here's what people are saying

"NotePlan is perfect for both. I’d use folders for Personal Knowledge Management, and utilize the daily note for tasks, meeting notes, and etc. I’ve tried a handful of larger note apps and NotePlan satisfies me the most thus far."


"I’ve tried Notion, Obsidian, Roam, Craft, Tana, and Anytype. NotePlan has the layout and functionality that I need. The integration with my calendar is great. It handles tasks better than any other on this list. I don't have to fiddle with it to make it do what I need to do."


Stop procrastinating, start getting things done.
