We have an amazing community of Supernotes users around the world. We asked them why they love Supernotes so much!
“The new right-hand pane, the UI, the keyboard shortcuts, the 1200 character limit, it being perfect for a zettelkasten, the export to markdown and PDF, embedding pictures. As a package, Supernotes is amazing.”
“[Supernotes] has changed my mindset for learning ... the concise note design forces me to hone my notes into the key points and write in a way that makes sense out of context of that lecture, rather than just copying what the lecturer says. Ultimately, Supernotes has helped me be more intentional and invested in growing my knowledge base.”
“I can organize all of the information that is valuable for me in one place. I feel that I do not just dump my knowledge into some sink, which, much like a black hole, won't ever expose that information again. On the contrary, I feel great relief once I filed some information as I can be certain that anytime I need that information, Supernotes will present it to me.”
“Gorgeous design. I’m tired of all these ugly apps where people can customize it with css. They always end up looking like sh***y versions of MySpace pages from 2005. A good looking app is super important to me and Supernotes is beautiful.”
“The thing that won me over is the Zettelkasten card system philosophy. I love how the cards are linked as child cards, direct links, or tags. It's easy to link up ideas in a way that makes sense.”
“I am a PhD researcher. Personally, I am currently using supernotes as a dump for little snippets of information that I pick up from texts, academic articles, that I derive myself. These includes facts, questions, equations, methods etc. I then can search through them and I write more long-form fleshed out thoughts in Obsidian.
I like how Supernotes forces you into a mindset of small notes that can be easily searched and synthesized into larger notes.”
“① The notecard: it keeps me from being too prolix – and preserves maneuverability (plus it's familiar).
② The mix of vertical hierarchy (parent cards, the tree) with non-hierarchical linking (via bi-directional links + tags) – it makes me a bit panicky if I can't switch between them (i.e, outlines are useful, but only just).
③ Privacy! You're not mining and monetizing my data.
④ I can PDF out of Supernotes into the physical realm when I need tangibility.”
“To be honest, I have made an ample research to find the perfect app and I couldn’t find anything like Supernotes. If I had to pick a thing that grabbed my attention is the cards system because nearly all notetaking apps intended to build a knowledge system are focused in long form writing.
I think that the UI/UX using cards instead of a single page long form text is brilliant.”
“The card based interface is helpful for memorizing key concepts pulled from my notes and other materials, both analogue and digital. Moreover, the program is well designed. I’m in the architecture profession, so I appreciate well-designed apps. I think it’s the most beautiful note taking app out there.”
What apps have you replaced with Supernotes? “Mainly Notion. I feel that Supernotes is better to use for my notes. Especially for quick notes and thoughts. I love that you can customize the menu on the side with only the notes that are relevant to you.”
