I really want to love this app but I’m finding so much friction. Is it just me not understanding the workflow? Here’s an example: It’s easy enough to start a new note, just type! I love that feature. Let’s say I create a note about “Writing a Blog” and add a tag like #creativity. Click finish and I’m done.
I come back another day and want to find that note. It’s not in my note tree unless I remembered to click the ellipsis and choose Priority or double click the title. Either way it seems like an unnecessary extra step. Friction.
The note is in the master list in Home but if I have a lot of notes you’d need to scroll through them to find it. Friction.
I could just use the search function, however, searching for “creativity” doesn’t bring up the note because I used the hashtag and the actual word isn’t in the body of the note. Searching for #creativity doesn’t bring up the note either which I find very odd. Friction.
I can filter by tag. I select the filter icon from the sidebar, then click Add Filter and I see the creativity tag. Clicking on it creates that as a filter option and reveals the note. Whew. That’s a lot of work just to search by tag.
I also get confused by some of the terminology. For example, if I click on a note in the sidebar it opens on the noteboard. From here I can read, edit, etc. In the top left of the noteboard is a button that reads “Open in Noteboard - add children”. It’s already open in Noteboard. Shouldn’t it just read “Add children”?
Thanks for listening. Maybe I’m just confused. I really do love this app and want to use it on a daily basis.
