Best Note-taking App

Visually organize your notes with Thinker

Note: This is only a Playground app for Thinker so no data is stored and some features are disabled.

Note-taking in a document is inefficient because:

  • Sequential Writing: Ideas and inspirations do not follow a pattern and are initially all over the place. Writing them down in a linear text document makes it impossible to organize them.

 

  • Restrict Free flow: Sometimes an idea might branch into multiple different ideas. This cannot be represented effectively in a linear document as there is no clear distinction between them but for use of maybe a divider to separate them. Further, it does not justify the hierarchical nature of ideas and makes it impossible to link them together

 

  • Lacks Visual Stimulus: Most of us are visual thinkers. We need to see the bigger picture of our ideas before we can put the pieces together. Traditional note-taking applications like Evernote or Notion feed us with raw text and lack any visual cues.

With a high influx of inspiration, you need a tool that helps you dump your ideas first and then organize them to make them more meaningful, which is why Thinker’s Whiteboard tool makes it the best notes application for productivity in the market.

1. First write notes and then Organize it

​Thinker follows the “Write first organize Later” principle which is fundamental to a physical whiteboard. Let us go through the array of tools Thinker offers for seamless visual note-taking and brainstorming.

  • Thinker has a virtual whiteboard with sticky note tools. You dump your thoughts with just a click of a button and type it out. 

 

  • You can color-code these notes according to priority so that you can revisit them on the go.​​

  • When you have a detailed and structured note to take down, Thinker offers embedded docs which is a full-blown text editor just like Google Docs right in your virtual whiteboard.

Thinker whiteboards are not limited to Texts. You can add images, videos, or links as part of your visual inspirations or even build flowcharts to visualize business processes with the help of shape tools

2. Visually Organize you Notes

  • The Frame tool provided in Thinker’s Whiteboard lets you organize your notes into different groups. Each group can be labeled with meaningful group titles. Every individual component in the whiteboard can be interconnected to create a data flow.

  • You can have distinct data flows within the same whiteboard or if need be, you can separate them into different whiteboards within the same project.

  • Laser: If you are presenting the notes on a screen, the laser tool is useful to direct the viewer's attention to a particular part of the whiteboard.

4. More than just a Notes Application

  • Thinker also provides a kanban board for you to track your Todos. The Kanban board is sleek and minimal when compared to a Trello board but is packed with all the features you find in a Trello or Todoist except collaboration.

Founder's Profile photo

Thinker strives to be extremely minimal. No unnecessary customisations like you find in other apps like Everynote, Notion, etc. Think of it like a hammer that drives a nail into the wall. You want the hammer that is sturdy, not a hammer in which you can mak a phone call.
