    Once you figure out Notion and the way you organise notes in it, it's pretty irreplaceable.

      Notion is an absolute delight to use on desktop and mobile. Highly recommend!

        Really? The lack of a native mobile app is keeping me from really committing to Notion. I find the performance pretty bad and the overall smoothness and polish obviously lacking. And always-on is not a great requirement for a notes application.

          All fair points! I've actually found Notion to be pretty performant considering it's written with the web stack and Electron (I'm assuming), but I understand. A lot of apps are going that route these days and you can feel it.

          I'm curious about what exactly is performing poorly in the app?

            It takes about 5 seconds from icon click to usable window in my experience - unacceptable.

              Understandable! It does have a hefty load time thanks to its web-based stack, but once up, things feel pretty zippy to me, but it definitely doesn't come close to our lovely native apps for sure. The tradeoff between cross-platform ease of development and product development versus 2-3 separate teams for different platforms (and higher cost for that).

              Crazy world of products we live in!

      Yeah I switched to Notion earlier this year and it’s phenomenal.

      Switched to Notion from Bear Notes earlier this year. Notion also lets you manage multiple workspaces without multiple logins - similar to how Slack handles different teams.

      Available on mobile too: iTunes | Play Store

      There is a lot to like about Notion, but some real dealbreakers like poor image handling (try creating a moodboard), performance, only basic search, and limited copy and paste functionality on mobile.
