EDIT Many things have changed in the past month since using Dynalist, its actually Really Fast now almost on-par with workflowy, so any points I've made about it being slower than workflowy are kind of minute now
If I had to pick one software of the 400 or so I bookmarked here to be my favorite its this one
Its a great program for organizing information

it's really useful for organizing day to day things and keeping your ideas and "stuff" well organized
I like Dynalist because it so minimalistic, distraction-free and very powerful tool on the same time.
You can focus on what really matter (not to selecting from hundred templates for document and customizing it's view later, like in Notion) and build your own structure of notes (flat with tags, tree-based or mix of them). Thanks to tags and backlinks, it's possible to implement Zettelkasten in Dynalist.
Dynalist has become absolutely indispensable in my business and personal life. The free version is so robust, but I purchased the premium version anyway. Partly so I can add images, but largely to support the dev team.
HERE'S HOW I USE ITI've built my personal project management system around Trello and Dynalist. I treat Trello like my short term 'memory' to track daily tasks with 4 columns: backlog, doing, waiting, done. For example, if I'm on a call and need to remember something, or I have an errand to do, it goes on Trello. But if I add too much to Trello it gets overwhelming and messy, so it's not a great place to store ideas or notes. That's where Dynalist really shines.
Dynalist is my long term 'memory' where I track everything. Call logs, business ideas, outlines, course notes, travel plans, etc. I keep everything in one giant document. The unlimited nesting bullet points and ability to 'zoom in' on specific bullets means the list never gets overwhelming or messy. It's easy to re-organize and restructure my notes without friction.
For example, right now I'm creating a comprehensive training course with my business partner, and we collaborate entirely via Dynalist. The experience has been seamless. In the past I've tried doing projects 1/10th as complex with Google Docs; the whole thing becomes a mess almost immediately and my collaborators just stop referencing the doc. Lately I've started creating SOPs for my team so I can quickly share a how-to guide without spending a lot of time training.

workflowy was king, but this is def betteralmost as good as checkvist or better
It takes some creativity to use it right, but it is the best todo application around for my purposes. It's great how you can infinitely drill in to tasks, which is helpful for breaking tasks down. It is great for using as a list application as well. And it's great how flexible the system is, where I can creatively use notes or have specialized sections, not confined to plain tasks like other todo systems.
Simple, Quick ,Easy to use, Easy to View and pleasant for the eyes. NO BS. Have the Mind Map feature. Overall I love this Dynalist!
