Hashtags

As part of the "new look" for the community, I'm asking we use hashtags to identify topics and tools more easily in our posts.  If you post about a tool, please hashtag the name of the tool.  If you post about a specific technique please include the name of the technique as a hashtag.  Hopefully this will help us get more from all the volumes of information here.

If you use a hashtag that isn't listed here, please add it to the comments so we can add it to the master listing.

I agree with you because I too like Wiznote very much, even more kindly and versatile in use, but it's a bit slow.

A web app, think it could be really good if we give it some time.
Transpose is the only simple way to build your own solutions. Structured note taking templates, cloud based, simple and beautiful.

This one seem fun, for iPhone only, though.
Create & Link. Create stars and link them to each other. Soon it will present you the deep relationship between your knowledge. Instant Overview. You can always have a overview for the input. Tired of searching a note created months ago? Now you can easily locate it in the galaxy!

After one year searching, more than 100 recorded sites, dozens of tested tools, I believe I have finally found a replacement for Springpad, at least for my needs: Zotero.
It is not necessarily a notebooking tool, it's a citation (reference) management software, but having a very open data format, accepting various types of item, has served very well to what I was seeking.
Some key features for me, for those who want to test:
-Plugin (especially Firefox, but works with all major browsers)
-Tags
-Folders (with unlimited subfolders)
-Sorting by several different properties
-Intelligent and very complete search, with several filters
-Notes with rich text
-Relations between items
-Save link and/or full text (snapshot)

Of course not everything is perfect. Perhaps the main problem is the visual rather spartan, but the functionalities have served well to me.

Vikram and his crew has really worked on Germio since last time I gave you a notice on this app. now it starts to become a Evernote competitor. All they need now is the availability to add rich web content + a web clipper (which I have sent them an e-post about) and they are good to go.
germ.io is an ideation and project planning tool that lets you capture abstract ideas, collaboratively brainstorm and turn them into actionable projects you can execute

Just gave it a bit of a spin. Interface still needs some getting used to, but it sure is quite promising. This will definitely come in useful for presentations.

Currently the 'dealbreaker' for me is that there's no easy way to navigate between the 'slides', because there's no content overview.

It had great promise. I have a paid account.  But, alas, the interface was really too complicated.  I spent more time fiddling with it than organizing and doing.  I have abandoned it myself, in favor of Checkvist.  Strange that I have not gotten the email yet...

This seems promising.

Hi Chenyze,
Thanks for the great feedback! You're right, there isn't really any reason to hide that information when adding a bookmark, link, or image. I think that may change soon :)

Ah, yes, the calendar. Currently it just exists as a way to jump between days (since all content can be viewed based on the day it was added). Personally, I actually use Ctitch quite a bit as a daily planning tool, so I occassionally use the calendar just to quickly jump and see a note I left for myself after that meeting last Thursday, or see the to-do list I made yesterday, or to look at the photos of my recent hiking trip that I added two weekends ago, etc...

A more feature-rich calendar was actually a large part of the original version of the site, and I still think someday it's something I may pursue -- there are just other great tools out their, like Google Calendar, so I've decided to focus more on other aspects of Ctitch. I do however really like the idea of Ctitch becoming a historical archive of all my stuff, so I think the time element will play a role as Ctitch develops.

If you have any additional critiques, definitely let me know (I love your comment about the hidden additional fields that only appear in the edit window -- specific comments like that are easy to add to my to do list to fix). I really do want Ctitch to become a tool that is heavily influenced by those who use it.

Evernote  - 
 
Evernote's Web Beta is now out of beta and will be rolled out to users in the next few weeks. I never liked the previous web version and always stayed away from it, and instead downloaded the windows or iOS apps. But when I saw this a couple months ago I started using it at work. Despite some missing features, it works well for most of what I do, and I like the new interface. This is not for everyone but might be worth a try for those who have found Evernote a bit complicated.
Today, we’re happy to graduate the new Evernote Web out of beta. Beginning this week, it will be rolling out to a browser near you. Here’s what you can expect.

When I first checked, it was... very sparse on features. They didn't even have tags. Are they still stick with notes in folders like Keep?

Is there no notation system out there that realized how necessary tags and reminders are on these tiny devices.

When you have thousands of notes and you need to compare them and sort them, folders and search are like a bat to your kidney.

To the first notes app that supports supporting and filtering by multiple tags (like swipes does with tasks) take my money. I'll pay !

That's what made springpad the best.

FYI  #Evernote 
As of September 30th, we’ll no longer support Evernote Food for iOS and Android. This means the apps will no longer be available for download and we won’t be making any further updates to them. It also means that features within the apps, including sync with the Evernote service, will no longer work.

+Hildegerd Haugen I'm starting to think that way as well.  It's hard to believe they'll put a concerted effort into anything that doesn't have a direct business / IPO benefit in the coming months.

This leans somewhat to capturing for journalism but some of these tactics and tools for clipping/saving might be useful, especially if you use various devices and tools that frequently don't play very well with others. #Evernote #Instapaper #clippings.iO #Kindle #pdf   #IFFTT  
I have seen the future of internet reading, and it is glorious.

Vurb is now on Android! YAYYYYYYY!

Been looking forward to it for months, so that I can create collections for restaurants, movies, and TV shows all in one place! It also allows for collections for music, videos, events and sights, via searches on Foursquare, imdb, YouTube etc. Execution has been pretty sleek so far. 

It's not for productivity matters like notes and task management (though you can have a Vurb chat with friends to plan a night out), but this is the closest I've found so far for a service that mimics the content curation aspect of Springpad. happy dance

Mac user here: I've found recently I'm gone back to just bookmarking webpages because I don't like a lot of the apps I've tried (Evernote, onenote, etc).

Mainly I want to be able to clip websites, store photos (ie: screenshots taken of useful info from a website that I can clip - like social media), and write small notes in some kind of organized system.

I'm predominately iOS, and sometimes OS X. Any app suggestions? I need an app not just a mobile website. Does not necessarily have to have a desktop version.

Web Clipping and Bookmarks  - 
 
New update to Trello. Bookmarklet and drag in URL's. Very useful! Works for any site, not just the ones in the blog title.
Introducing two new drag and drop capabilities in Trello that quickly create cards. Now you can make cards by simply dragging links from Amazon, IMDB, Pinterest, plus a bajillion more sites.
