"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 Logseq

Mind-changing (and life-changing) Was going to rate it 4 stars - there are a few places where the mobile app could see improvements (notably: toggle collapse button disappearing on iPhone 13 Mini, a few issues navigating between blocks) - BUT Logseq is such an amazing, paradigm-shifting app that it warrants a full five. Taking the feature-set of Roam, fine-tuning it in a few places, and offering it for FREE is astounding. Having access to such a powerful outliner both on mobile and desktop (which excels with its custom plug-ins and themes) has changed the way I think about thinking (ie metacognition). As someone with crippling ADHD, it’s not hyperbole to say that using Logseq had been instrumental in helping me understand my brain, learn more efficiently, and live more intentionally. Thank you Logseq dev team!

Most popular feedback for Dendron

Dendron has become my goto tool for journalling, structuring thoughts and ideas, planning, recording meetings, running with todo's. The list goes on and increases as the team even come out with new templates to existing entries to entirely new templates that make me think of what I'm not using it for now and then use those new features too. Without the newer features, I would still use Dendron as a place to store thougths in a way that you think rather than a way that you structure databases. This reduces friction and permits you to get the ideas down right away and therefore not to lose them. The only complaint I might have is that I dont yet use it enough. I could be losing 10% of new thoughts and ideas if I dont get to make an entry. I'm working on an app that could be used to update a Dendron Vault but I've no doubt there may be one out there already and if not soon they may be several. Dendron appears to be growing and improving all the time. Any time spent using Dendron is time invested.

About Dendron

The tool for taking hierarchical notes that expands with you as you learn more. It makes it simple for you to generate, search, and administer knowledge bases of any size. Built on top of VSCode, Dendron is an open-source, markdown-based, local-first note-taking tool that prioritizes local storage first. Dendron, just like the majority of similar tools, supports all of the typical features that you would anticipate, such as tagging, backlinks, a graph view, split panes, and other similar features. However, this is not the end of the problems; although most tools (attempt to make it) simple to import notes, they typically make it challenging to export them at a later time, and this difficulty only increases as more notes are imported. Dendron is a tool that can assist you in retrieving notes, and it works more effectively the more notes you have.

Logseq reviews

THIS is the app I’ve been trying to find for over a decade I’ve tried a great many TODO, PKM & Note apps over 15 or so years. I’ve had some that worked for me for a long time, but having notes, tasks and habits separate also wore me down over time and would eventually look for something else. THIS solution is what Ive needed. The integration of the daily journey into a PKM and todo app is fantastic. The shift in paradigm to everything being entered into your daily journal as an entry point is unexpectedly effective. I am very happy with the app and will gladly pay for it once they get a service model in place for sync.

My second brain is now on my phone! I have been using Logseq for nearly a year, and it has transformed how I take notes. It has literally become my second brain. Now I can take all that with me on my phone! Yes, it is still a beta app and there are some rough spots, but development is moving quickly and I expect this to continue to improve over the next few months.

- Luhmann

Super helpful I’m a big fan of the simplicity of the interface — it just neatly gets out of the way so it is easy to focus on getting thoughts recorded. It is pretty easy to make this your digital garden and grow your thoughts and ideas here. Love it!

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.

Pros & cons

Logseq

Pros
Simple of the interface
Many useful features
Cons
The iOS version doesn't allow for plugins but it mirrors the desktop version
Problem in syncing between devices

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
