Notion is a fabulous all round productivity app!

  • In the field of purely notes based apps it is better than the likes of Standard Notes, Laverna, SimpleNote, etc. due to its extensive markdown support, additional features (like inserting images, links, LaTeX, highlighting and text color), and the 'block' architechture that makes arranging and organising information very easy.
  • It serves as a very powerful productivity app that can be made to your preferences, supporting Kanban style views, ToDo lists, Calenders. While It may not be as focused as programs such as Trello, Asana or Monday, its customizability makes this a more powerful tool.
  • It is built for team use, is good for personal use, and can replace shitty shared OneNotes, Google Docs, and other collaborative tools. It more accessible than ever now with a new Android Version
  • It looks really nice
  • Active support

I no longer use Notion, as while I was enthralled with the software to begin with, underlying issues drew me away.

  1. the system is slow and clunky. inevitable based on the drag and drop based UI, Notion slows down your workflow dramatically. Unlike other word processors, you have to click into boxes and do more setup instead of actual writing, selection and editing of text and lines of text are made more difficult and slow based on the design decisions employed
  2. the login system is highly inconvenient. I had frequent problems with the login system, I understand their wish not to create their own login system, however the email verification system created numerous issues the made me unable to assess my files.

Everything gets organized in Notion... Plus: Markdown support.

Airtable competitor killer.

Cons:

Desktop app doesn't work without online connectivity. Auto-installs under %APPDATA%. Looks like the usual Electron-based app misbehavior.

Nat Eliason and his Sparknotes summary for books was what first introduced me to Notion. It's basically an Evernote-like application, a typical all-in-one.

The Web Clipper actually saving a local copy of the page is nice (hurricane Ian hit me in Florida at this time, so I used it a lot)

Not a perfect score as my two issues are: -Mobile app needs to be quicker, something with coding or the phone itself makes it a noticeable wait every time you hit a link. -Not being able to backup Notion (without Enterprise plan) isn't normal in this day and age. I know they have HTML exports and others.
