WorkFlowy Comments

Wow, I think I just fond the simplest and greatest app for to-do lists, notes and so much more!

about WorkFlowy Aug 2012

I have been thinking about a simple app like this for managing projects and their sub-tasks - and Workflowy is just that! It is so simple, but features endless levels of input (task, notes, whatever) and has great tagging features as well.

What a fantastic app! I've been searching for something to organize information for my MA thesis, and have been trying a lot of offline and online tools. This one is just simple, easy and beautiful. Higly recommended.
