Supreme to-do manager, note-taker, outliner

I also love the minimalism of WorkFlowy. But there is more to it. Its one-click hoist (or zoom) turns it into a brainstorming application (very similar to the legendary [BrainStorm]( )), as you can quickly zoom into an essential sub-topic, shutting all the noise out (so, yes, it is Zen).

It is always open in a tab on my browser. It has replaced all my other to-do apps both on the PC and in my iPad and iPod Touch. The automatic sync between all the devices just works.

In the end I use it for 3 main purposes:
- note-taking within a hierarchical system;

  • brainstorming lists and developing outlines on the fly (it is a single-pane outliner with inline notes, which in itself is a rarity);

  • managing my to-do list.

It also has OPML export, so with a bit of tinkering you can get your outline into other outliners (such as Bonsai or CarbonFin).


Zen app.

For those who love minimalism and got tired of noisy interfaces. Use it every day along with gmail and google calendar.
