re: Notable: The markdown-based note-taking app that doesn't suck VIEW POST


I just gave this a shot yesterday. It is indeed a very-well designed app!

However, I decided to stick to MacDown because:

  • It is faster to load and feels much lighter overall (Electron is a turn off for me here).
  • It has LaTeX support, which I absolutely need for my lecture notes (although it seems Notable has that on master).
  • It doesn't make any assumption as to where and how you store your notes, or even whether you sync them. I'm used to just dropping plain Markdown files in well-named Dropbox folders, and that has worked very well for me. Having a sidebar with tags and menus and categories etc may do it for some, but that's too much for me. And if I want mobile edits, I just do so on the Dropbox app (which has Markdown preview built-in).
