I think the tradeoff here is one of speed versus “proximity to the final destination.” Like you, I want to capture stuff quickly. I have an “inbox” container in my main Tinderbox document that I keep open in its own tab. If I’m willing to spend a second or two to navigate to document and tab, and enter something, I do. It’s not instant, but the note is reasonably close to the destination (it’s in the same Tinderbox document, at least). If I want to take a note instantly, then I use OmniFocus’s Quick Entry window. That lets me type in a note title and body if I want, and it files it to the inbox. Then at some point I can transfer the notes from OmniFocus to Tinderbox. Drag and drop works one-note-at-a-time, where it’ll set the $Name, $Text, and $URL (although I clear the URL since I’m deleting the note from OF anyway). It would be nice if it handled multiple drag-and-drop gracefully, but it doesn’t as of today. So basically what other people have said. There’s capture time, and organizing time. If you’re willing to spend a tiny bit of organizing time upfront, then an inbox container in your TB document works great. If not, then go for the quickest capture method you can find, whether it’s OmniFocus, DEVONthink, nvALT, or something else. I like OF just because it’s on my iPhone as well. As for “notes on the current note”, the footnotes are great because they create a link. I just treat the automatically created “Notes” container as a mini inbox.

Command Browser reviews

I’ve been using this for a while, really good, the general user experience is very nice. It has clean and pretty UI, robust utilities to accommodate basically any function one needs from this sort of website collecting/highlighting apps, and it combines all those features into just one app, making the whole process much easier and quicker, doing it better all the other similar apps in my opinion. I’ve only recently heard that it now can integrate with Notion and sync the highlights, which is really convenient for me because I’m a heavy Notion user, and so I started to use this app more frequently now. The syncing function’s good, easy setup, and the syncing is really fast, I like it a lot. The only thing is that it cannot sync the notes taken along with the highlights, which means that I still have to transfer the notes manually to pair off with every individual highlight in Notion, and that hinders the efficiency a bit. Really hope there would be a note syncing function as well in the future updates, just a personal wish.

Disclaimer: if you’re only looking for a browser, look elsewhere. This app is so much more. Review: I have been looking for ways to integrate with Notion in more meaningful ways. That is where all of my highlights and book notes are kept (syncs with Kindle highlights through Readwise, and my physical notes sync through Readwise). Why I have never heard of this app before, I’ll never know. I was looking for a way to highlight article and take notes without a subscription. I like Pocket, and I have tried Instapaper, but Command Browser has replaced them both. Not only does this natively integrate with Notion (which is so, so cool by the way) but it can ALSO integrate with Readwise (which, by extension, can integrate with Notion for a small annual fee). So now I can natively sync with Notion, or I can choose to integrate with Readwise to preserve my knowledge template there. This is a very long review, but let me make it very simple for you. If you are a Notion user, get this app. Seriously. That simple. You will LOVE IT. And it just works.

Really nice start. I'd really appreciate a few things... 1. More specific update notes please? 2. Notion integration needs fixing in my opinion so that tags made in Command stay attached to specific highlights (as when they are created in Command) ... Currently, when sent to Notion, tags get rolled up into a bundle as a property of a URL and as a result information (that tag X was attached to highlight Y) is LOST. To fix this, I think the Highlights table needs to have each *highlight* as its entity/row/granularity, rather than URL. Ideally a related "Pages" table with URL as base would store page title and page-scope comments. If that's hard (or not possible to auto-populate related fields?) then URL and page title could just be properties of each highlight in the Highlight table, with those values repeated for each highlight in a page. 3. Data protection: I'd love to know somehow that my Notion data isn't being exposed to accidental sharing or even erasing. Maybe Notion limitations make that impossible to guarantee but at least warn us of what could happen by giving you the keys to my data there. 4. Thanks for the handy app!
