"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."

Most popular feedback for Craft

Craft is the strongest 1.0 note-taking app I’ve ever used. It offers a thoroughly native experience, taking advantage of all the best system features across its respective platforms, while also retaining the power and versatility of modern web-based services like Notion. Real-time collaboration is an especially exciting feature, and I love that even if someone doesn’t have a Craft account, they can add comments to your notes through public webpages.

About Craft

It is a device on which I can rely regardless of where I am or the time of day I require it. It makes it easier for me to concentrate on the subject at hand. Because a Craft note or document may accurately represent my digital identity in a manner in which I am content for it to be viewed, I have no qualms about sharing it with anyone. Craft's structuring capabilities, which include pages, cards, and toggles, enable me to write longer documents of five pages or more in a way that makes me feel in control of the situation and makes it easier for me to see what I'm doing. This is made possible by the fact that I can use different organizational methods. The fact that I enjoy using it is the primary factor that sets Craft apart from other contemporary tools for increasing productivity for me. Other tools may do their intended functions, but using them can be quite irritating. People are able to feel the love and attention to detail that was put into the development of Craft, which is something that we see reflected in the response from our community. Because Craft already exists, I no longer begin each day with dread, dreading the location where I would be spending the majority of my working day. This is because Craft already exists. Now that I've had some rest, I feel ready to tackle the day's tasks of thinking, writing, and speaking in Craft. Craft is one of my favorite places to spend the day. To put it another way, the "how" is equally as important to me as the "what," and the need to find a solution to this issue was arguably one of the primary motivating factors behind why I began working on Craft.

have been using the app for a little bit now and I have to say that it has been a good experience so far. Simplistic, conversational design which works because emails can be a mess. I will like to see the service able to connect to other email clients outside of Gmail which I would imagine is going to come. Also if there is a way to have a section that offers a team style message place where you can invite someone you been emailing with to a secondary workspace to share files and conversation within the app. I think that would be cool and with the app’s clean look it would work well. This is almost already there with the notes feature. Wishful thinking I think the devs on this are off to a great start. There are a lot of email clients that are out there that don’t deliver on making email simple and easy in terms of use. Looking forward to see upcoming features and how the app grows. Also please keep the app add free. Even if there is a one-time payment which is always the best or even subscription model so that the devs are funded and supported and we don’t get ads.

About Twobird

We give the use of technology to humans a lot of thought. With the help of our initial software, SoundAMP, iPhones might be used as multiband digital hearing aids to assist those with mild to severe hearing loss. Based on the realization that the iPad permitted a new sort of note-taking, particularly with increased review and replay of notes made in a class or meeting, we released Notability, the first app of its kind, in 2010. Millions of kids, families, and individuals throughout the world rely on Notability, which is consistently listed as a top selling software in the iOS App Store. Our success with Notability inspired us to consider further demands for better, more straightforward digital experiences. What if we could eliminate the need to move between apps for communication and everyday tasks? Illustration of confetti a picture of lunch at the work lunch table by Ginger Labs workers We had a lot of experience with notes, but we desired an inbox experience that combined notes, reminders, and email. We believed that since our digital lives are interactive and collaborative, so should our inboxes, which should compile all of our information for easy access in one location. Our team has been developing, testing, and breaking numerous concepts for a better communication channel for more than two years. The outcome is Twobird, a novel email app that is currently accessible on all significant desktop and mobile platforms. In order to assist users focus on what's most crucial in their digital lives and comprehend material more quickly, our goal is to develop cutting-edge apps that accommodate all learning styles. Illustration of confetti our opinions Picture of a card game being played by Ginger Labs staff The best technological tools, in our opinion, support focus and creativity while being strong and intuitive. Technology can and should work for you, boosting the interactions and information that are most important, not for it to be the center of your day, in our opinion.

Craft reviews

Craft was a little bit hard to understand at first (that's on me--they explain everything very well), but once you get the hang of it, suddenly you have a place where you can truly organize your notes, thoughts, life goals, to-dos, all in one app. On top of this, you can layer this organization to your heart's content--if you're a creative type, you can have a "creative" folder with a "lyrics" subfolder with "melancholy" and "funny" subfolders, as well as a "sources of inspiration" subfolder with "quotes" and "aesthetic choices" subfolders within that. Just examples! Moving between these folders is super easy, so it's quickly turned into my personal little hub for all of the ideas I randomly come up with. More than that, it's fairly simple searching things so that if you're ever in a creative rut, you can pull ideas from when you weren't. Honestly I don't think I've scratched the surface of what this app can really do, but I'm really happy I came across it. Beforehand, I was just using my phone's Notes app, and while it was easy enough getting my thoughts down quickly, finding them again or being able to connect them to other thoughts was basically out of the question. Best part (although pretty common for note-taking apps) is that I can write stuff down on my iPhone while out and about, and then expand on those ideas later on my computer--very seamless in that regard!

Took me awhile to grab onto Craft despite all of the buzz, and now it has become my essential app, especially with the recent calendar and daily note integration. This fits the way I think/operate, and my most productive workflow so well, as it has become a place where I can keep a daily log of journal reflections, tasks, phone calls, meetings, etc, while also giving me easily accessible and connectable spaces to dive in and focus on projects, brainstorm, keep and plan long-term someday tasks and keep everything organized. It helps me think, plan and write, which is your mission.....but it really DOES help me do all of that! My only request is for a way to make the app text font size larger and easier to see. The control plus option that I usually use to do this currently functions to transform the text into larger bold headings, rather than to simply make the text larger so that it is easier to see. I can increase font size on the web app using this shortcut, but the web app still lacks many of the app features. For aging eyes looking at a laptop screen on a lap, for example, a way to make the font size larger and easier to see would be so appreciated!!

I'm a long-time user of Evernote who's constantly searching for a less problematic writing app. For the past 8 months, Evernote has been troublesome, including syncing problems, spinning disk issues when opening the app, disappearing files and other issues. The developers have also added a bunch of nonsense that NO ONE was requested, such as a task function and calendars. Craft is the closest I've found to a solid app that could replace Evernote. It is highly capable, syncs nicely and has a solid preferences menu. It also looks loverly -- the developers have obviously put a lot of care and attention into the app. It also starts up quickly, since it's built in native apps and not some third-party platform like Evernote uses that makes it work more like a web app. The deal breakers for me with Craft were the lack of tags (which I've come to rely on in nearly all my photography and writing work), the fact that it won't work outside of the Apple ecosytem (I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max and a Samsung Galaxy Fold 2) and the lack of tables. If you can live without these elements, Craft will suit you well. As a bonus, Craft costs roughly half of what Evernote is charging annually.

Twobird reviews

The interface is great: I like the low priority & unsubscibe, and the inbox is organized, simple and easy to look at. Unfortunately, the app is missing MAJOR features: PDFs (and many other types of attachments) can't be opened, and no attachments can EVER be downloaded (to open separately maybe), multi-selection doesn't allow most of the important organization features (labeling, moving, setting reminders), so you have to go into each one manually and do the things, also no way to print at all.

- Chen Asraf

Great app, great cross-platform support. Still lacking a few key features that would make it a no-brainer. E.g. I have a Google account with more than one alias set up, but I have to remember to manually select which alias to send an email every time. (Thankfully it automatically selects the right one when replying, but not for forwarding.) The calendar support is there, but I'd love for it to support event colors since I color code many events on one of my calendars. Great potential!

- Cain Gantt

I cannot wait to see how this app evolves. Things I love: - The texting-like interface---makes email feel like less of a slog - Markdown!!! - Free but with premium features, including snoozing, send later, hiding external images, etc. - Notes!!! Things that could be improved: - I don't love the interface aesthetics: --- (1) the font is chunky (especially in bold); would be amazing if there were options here. --- (2) the color highlights are dominated with eye-wateringly bright pinks and purples. I'd love to be able to turn off colors. --- (3) the icons are a little oversized
