MyMind also makes it easy to add manually typed notes. You can use markdown language to format your notes. I am not a big markdown user, but it is a good option to have. Once again, you can add your own tags, but MyMind will search all the text automatically.
A browser designed exclusively for using the internet is called Command. The browser offers connections with well-known note-taking apps, a web highlighter, and an online notebook. TLD HIGHLIGHTER To surf the web like a book, use Command's web highlighter. Markup increases page readability. WEBSITE MAGAZINES Write down the information you discover in your command journals. Save websites, memes, and other items for quick access. READING LIST You should save articles so you may later read and annotate them without using up all of your favorites. The app allows users to submit content from even outside sources! INTEGRATIONS To keep track of the information you read and contribute it to your knowledge base, Command integrates with well-known note-taking apps like Notion, Readwise, and OneNote. REMAIN CENTRIC To assist you with maintaining your concentration while reading, Command provides features like highlighting, ad blocking, and no notifications. STAY SAFE Your information is stored on your servers, not those of other people. But Command uses iCloud to sync, not other servers. We use biometric locks to secure your private tabs. There is no registration needed to use Command.
Glean is a solid app that is useful for recording work meetings, speeches, and classroom lectures. The students I work with and I appreciate the ability to clean up audio after recording as well to filter out ambient classroom noise. The ability to add notes and flag sections of the audio (via emojis) is helpful for pinpointing necessary areas to return to after recording. Other features, such as the ability to add powerpoint slides or the "lightning mode" tool, help make Glean a well rounded notetaking solution. Still, there is room for this program to grow. I think it could be helpful to add more to the "task" feature to help add an organizational component to Glean, and more work could be done to combine sets of notes to make the "reading view" feature more useful. Lastly, while the Glean team is continuing to improve the mobile app, I believe that the desktop version is quickly surpassing it and the missing components become more glaring as time progresses. Still, none of these issues are enough to discourage use of the program. Ultimately, Glean provides more value to university students and professionals by helping to make these communities more accessible.
In the future, learning will be synonymous with gleaning. A more inclusive, effective, and purposeful learning experience is what makes for better learning. There is no such thing as squandered time, either in terms of the number of hours spent in school or the quantity of information learned or your own potential. By assisting students in maximizing the benefits they derive from working with spoken language and making better use of note taking to convert information into knowledge, our learning technology helps to cut down on waste.
This app is a great concept. I love the idea of being able to save all my clippings and ideas in one place without the need to sort or tag them, but then still be able to find them later. The issue for me is that, because I do so much work on my iPhone, I need a solid iPhone app. That’s where mymind falls (very) short and it’s what is keeping me from subscribing. Right now, the app feels like the web browser. There’s no dark mode (as basic must-have for paid apps) and some things just don’t save. For example, trying to save an Instagram post results in an error message. In addition, the AI is not as good as Apple Notes. I did a couple of side-by-side comparisons and I had more success finding things in Apple Notes than MyMind.
This is truly transformational in organizing all parts of my daily and long term ideas, inspirations, and utility focused resources. The organization of multiple content types alone would make this invaluable, but the ability to search beyond just tags and folders through AI removes my burden in saving things properly and assures that I never am stuck in a position where I’m unable to find what I’m looking for. This is better than my actual mind, it’s my brain supercharged and much more organized. I can’t wait to see how much better it gets as I continue to fill it with resources.
As a creative who does a lot of internet research, I’ve tried many tools over the years to organize everything I gather from the internet. Evernote, Instapaper, Pocket, Pinterest, you name it. But because I do a lot visual work, I felt that all of those tool were either lacking or over complicated. MyMind AI tagging system and super fast image loading is a game changer for me. Its a very simple, minimalistic and it just work. Love it. I just wish it wasn’t as pricey as it is, and I’m-fast image loading is a game-changer for me.

“Glean has made me a better learner. It has been one of the few things that’s really worked and really helped me capture information and at the same time figure out who I am as a learner. It’s taught me how to take notes and how I want to take notes."
- Samantha, Student, Harvard University
“Glean has dramatically improved my grades. Before I got Glean I was a C- student, I’m now an A student. I wouldn’t do my learning any other way now."
- Natalie, Carleton University
Glean's been a gift for us. It's a gift to show a child that they are capable - that a tool doesn't have to do it for them for them to succeed."
- Jennifer Topple, The Howard School
