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

Dendron reviews

Dendron has given me the opportunity to have a one-stop place for all my notes, random thoughts and project planning right where I feel at home - in VSCode [...] I use Dendron mostly to manage multiple projects to keep track of meeting notes, TODOs, planned features and sharing all of this with my colleagues.

- Chris Na Tinkerer/Software Architect

Hierarchies [are] such a game changer. I just couldn't organize myself with a flat structure and ended up spreading notes out. The key thing that changed my perspective was the ease of restructuring hierarchies, it gives you the confidence to just write, safe in the knowledge that you can just restructure it later

- Luke Carrier Site Reliability Engineer

I've been using Dendron exclusively for my daily journal and notetaking since last week. Now that I've learned about PARA and figured out the hierarchy that best works for me, I'm absolutely loving it! [...] It took me a couple of days to figure out the best workflow and transfer my past notes, I'm now moving faster and able to create, update, and find notes quickly.

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!

Pros & cons

Dendron

Pros
It has a friendly and professional community, including developers that listen to feedback and continously improve the product
It uses git (or other source code management system) for version history, which is a really clever choice (why reinvent the wheel, if these tools do it so much better)
It uses Markdown, which has all the necessary formatting options, without forcing to use a bloated, slow and proprietary WYSIWYG editor

Command Browser

Pros
Has clean and pretty UI
Robust utilities to accommodate basically any function one needs from this sort of website collecting/highlighting apps
Combines all those features into just one app

Cons
Notion integration needs fixing
Notes not updated
It does not scale the website in the browser itsel
