Not to long ago, I made this post soliciting recommendations for note taking apps and y'all came through!
My top 3, recommended by the lovely people below were:
- RemNote by @dgeisz
- Obsidian.md by @terabytetiger
Bear by @jackkeller
- note: I should prob mention that Bear is only for Apple devices, my work is 99.99% in a Windows environment, and my phone is Android. But that UI is too. damn. sexy to leave off this list
Since the RemNote desktop was a little glitchy, I decided to keep an eye on it and started using Obsidian as my daily app. Since then, it's pretty much been smooth sailing. I found some great extensions and upped my productivity by with daily notes and rollover to-dos.
Yesterday, things suddenly took a turn. I clicked on one of the shortcuts to open my daily note, and everything was gone. My activity tracking, items for review and follow disappeared. Obsidian had overwritten my daily note with a brand new file.
Today, things got 10x worse when I restarted my computer, opened Obsidian and found that most of the folders had disappeared. I was able to mostly restore them. But the latest files were not in their latest state.
I turned it on this week and it's been chaos since. However I'm not too keen to find out.
And so the hunt for my next best note taking tool continues 🥲
