It has been brought to my attention this community has lost it's previous momentum and levels of engagement. This is something that needs to be rectified immediately due to the quality level of the content and community members we have here. With this in mind I am implementing some new community guidelines:

1. This will return to being an approval-required community for membership (sorry spammers).

2. Link only posts are discouraged. Content should encourage discourse not just redirect members away from the community. Repeated posting of link only posts without comments in the posting will be considered spam.

3. Non-productivity spam will be removed. Repeat offenders will be shown the door.

4. The list of sections will be revised to the following:

Tools - All physical and digital productivity tool related posts

Techniques - Focus on productivity methods regardless of tool

Discussions - General productivity discussions and questions

Member Blogs - Productivity posts and links from member blogs

Canned Spam - Productivity related spam

Polls and Surveys

Productivity Showcase - Glimpses into our personal productivity systems

These guidelines are not to discourage participation or to implement draconian controls over the group. I hope that combining these changes with increased participation and contribution of our members we can bring the spark back to this group.

Just want to update you on the Tabs Project.. the drafts and designs are done, we have a beta information site and will announce it soon. The great thing is all your Springboard/Pad stuff will be imported, into TabBooks like your Notebooks and we will also have clipping, but much more exciting stuff is coming, hopefully in 6-9 months if you wait, you will have something very close to what Springboard could do, but even better. Thanks for those who have subscribed to beta, hopefully in 3-6 months beta will be going.

I've had some things on Kifi and liked how it looked. Mostly I had some recipes that I used sometimes and the app always looks very good visually. But last month I was surprised that little ads were showing up. I hope they can get rid of those when Google takes it on.. I think I'll get more use with it when Google gets it up and running.

The Eisenhower matrix is used to categorize tasks between important and urgent.  Priority Matrix is a Windows App that utilised it in a novel interface and couples it with cross platform and collaborative functionality.
Here I review how it works in practice.
Here we review Priority Matrix for Windows from Appfluence. This task manager, based on the Eisenhower matrix, aims to provide the best of both worlds – a native windows application but with online syncing and collaborative team working features. Introduction There is no shortage of internet based task management solutions that enable distributed teams …

As of now, if I had to ditch Evernote it'd be for this free app "Band" believe it or not! (Originally developed as a collaboration app for gamer/single topic cults and the like, and you can see in the discovery section the 4million using it are youngins').
I do use it for communication and chats with some of my client teams and it's great for that. Primarily tho I use it because of its brilliant structure for 1. content curation; and 2. for its full featured note creation capability which I need. No standard formatting yet (it's coming)...but as of the last update a single note can now contain :
⬜ links (any number of which all open to nice previewed thumbnails in the note field).
⬜ 3 video's (downloaded video's auto play in the note if you set it to).
⬜ unlimited photos
⬜ 5 files (Google, Device, Dropbox)
⬜ full display map location
⬜ ToDo's (awkwardly implemented)
⬜ Events (integrated w/Calendar)
⬜ Stickers (fun)
⬜ Polls
▪ That's all content within one note!...All with inline texting of said content. No other apps I think can do that...including Google Docs or Evernote.
▪ All posts (notes) have a great tag UI, and unlimited comment boxes all of which (like facebook) are link and photo enabled. I use these for additional related information. All Bands build nice photo albums, and aggregates of files and videos.
▪ SO...the organizational options and capabilities of your data is flexible and just superb. Generally you'd manage a project within a Band, but it could be done within a Note/Post!
▪ As with all good stuff there's a steep learning curve with this app as you'll keep unearthing cool UI stuff.
And...its flat out fun with goofy stickers and shoutout features if you'd use something like that.
▪ It's the closest to the Springpad experience I've had but like it better actually as it surpasses SP in the feature factor.
#Web, #iOS and #Android. (Web experience is superb).
▪ Again, this app works fantastically for ME because of my needs for multimedia note creation, content organization, and suits my workflow in general.

Anyway, I think a lot of diary applications could offer many of us something. I will dive into it more during July.

You know, I hadn't thought of journals being used in this way, but there's one I have called Journey. For a journal, it functions a lot as a bookmarking tool as well as a social tool. It has a clipper in Chrome, apps for nearly all the platforms, syncs with GDrive, you can email entries, and soon they're planning IFTTT integration. When I see the l list, I think of all the things people have talked about here, and it really does seem like a possible solution for many. Here's the link if anyone's interested. https://www.journey.cloud/

Just saying hi. as haven't posted in a while, but have been catching up avidly.
Just also wanted to say thanks to all those who posted the stream of informative OneNote migration from Evernote posts, as followed suit recently after the latest round of Evernote feature cuts, and have found OneNote to be just so much better, and also no feature cuts (Don't even think about it Mr Microsoft).
Off to do more clipping and organising.
Thanks everyone

I was just looking at this one. Too bad they don't have a desktop app.

Something new to try..... not had a play yet myself but looks more of a Google Keep alternative than Evernote or OneNote.

Nifty little collaborative web application that lets you set up a custom framework of nested documents for projects, to-dos, whatever you want. A desktop app is supposed to be coming soon. #web

Has anyone else had a look at memosnag? It has an extension for Chrome and Firefox, and an iOS app, I only wish it had an android app... I will play with it for a time, and see how it works.

Of course, I do wonder about its plan to support itself.

Let me know what you think.

New app incorporating hashtags for organization (for those of you missing Fetchnotes) Unfortunately, only for #iOS currently :(
This is a different kind of notes app. Simpler. Smarter. Better. You can type #hashtags into your notes to organize them. #hashtags link all the tagged notes together—tap on any to see them all. We'll find any phone numbers, email addresses, or links in your notes, too, and you can tap on those to call, email, or go to the web. A dash and then a space makes a list—you can tap the dash later to cross things off. Attach #photos of things you’d like...

Call me crazy, but I have decided to embark on my latest experiment in conjunction with the start of the second half of 2016. As much as I enjoy technology, I am going to give the ol' pen and paper a try for managing my personal tasks and to-dos. New Planner Pads setup should be arriving on my doorstep today and I've been organizing stuff (like prepping data from Nirvana to go into the new system) to get ready.

In some ways I do not expect this to be as efficient as the various tech tools I've been using for years. The offset is that I'm hoping the acts of handling paper and actually writing stuff down will provide some intangible benefits.

Without sounding like a jerk, I'd really like to make a request.
When we post a solution, let's tag it :
#Android - an Android app is available
#windows - a windows program is available
#web - a web app is available
#Mac - a Mac app is available
#ios - an iPhone app is available
#linux - a Linux binary or the source is available

For many of us , we're only looking for specific solutions. Plus, if we tag them like this, we can always quickly go back and see all the solutions for the platform we're using.

Over the past couple of days I have been searching the internet for Evernote alternatives and you guys I think I'm in love with this one:

- Open source.
- Encrypted notes.
- Ability to attach images, documents, passwords, bookmarks.
- Markdown text editor!!!!! (I love Markdown)
- Chrome Extension that lets you save bookmarks.
- tags
- Nested Boards
- Shared boards (havent tried this yet)
- Android app and windows desktop app.
- option to run your own server.

And it's completely free! They are working on launching a premium service soon, so we will see where this goes.

Goodbye Evernote! Nice knowing you!

This looks to be an interesting alternative to Evernote. Seems to be web based but you can run it on your own server. It's not on mobile yet but that currently in development. I am going to try this out. #web
Clibu lets you create, collect, find and share information quicker and easier than ever before.
