    Hi all, as most of you will know I use an Android phone and an iOS iPad. For a long time now I have not downloaded any new apps, taking into account I am not a game user. I just did not find any app that interested me enough to download and try it and the few that I did try were not to keep. I am more inclined to delete about half of my apps as I don't use them anymore :-). So my question is, did anyone on this digest let's say in 2021 find a new app that is really WOW and that you would like to share on here ?

    I am impressed by, which is a plaintext note taking application -- or more grandiloquently a 'knowledge management system' -- that runs on Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android and now syncs between them too. It has built an impressive community through rapid development over the last year or so. It seeks (or claims) to be a solution for people trying to avoid 'lock-in', in so much as you can always take your plain-text notes to some other system. Lots of plug-ins being developed to extend its capabilities--calendars and to-do lists and query tools (dataview) and so on and so forth. My intended use is to use it to help me keep researching and writing and organising projects, but it seems flexible enough to be put to all sorts of uses.

    Does it allow for writing with a pen as well (like the pencil of apple) ?

    My iPad hasn't got a pencil I'm afraid, but I would have assumed it should be properly integrated with system apps. (I did try it briefly with a bt keyboard and that worked fine--I'm not a fan of onscreen keyboards.) I have a Cosmo so have been mostly using it with that and with a MacBook Air. The extra screenspace of the laptop is beneficial so is my main use, but being able to work on the Cosmo as a mini-laptop when one isn't carrying the bigger laptop is great.
