Last week I created a post asking the Indie Hackers community what the best note taking apps were.
The response was great.
130+ comments later these are the findings:
→ Everyone has different needs based on their workflows and finding a one size fits all Notes app is very difficult.
→ Many like to have multiple notes apps for different purposes eg: ideas vs writing vs workflow.
→ People want staying power and an app that will stand the test of time. Being able to access notes in the future is important.
→ People want control of their data and to know where it is being stored.
The Most popular Note Taking Apps
bytebase.io got a lot of praise from Indie Hackers very own @cara
Bear App was another very popular choice
Notion.so is used by many for all sorts of notes
evernote.com/ is a well established staple for others
roamresearch.com/ got some hype as a tool for networked thought
workflowy.com/ was praised for its simplicity
Simplenote.com is a favourite for many
Typora is popular for converting markdown
Others also like to stick to the more traditional note taking apps
→ Google Docs
→ Google Keep
→ Mac Notes
Many Indie Hackers are working on creating their own Note Taking Apps.
