Thanks to NotePlan for sponsoring BrettTerpstra.com this week! I started using Noteplan when it first came out and have been impressed with how refined it’s become over time. The concept of using Markdown files for planning, scheduling, and note-taking is brilliant, but it takes some special execution to make it work. NotePlan pulls it off!
With NotePlan you get serious work done. It helps you spend less time planning and more time doing. It lets you track your work and get things out of your head quickly so you have the headspace to be creative — that’s what brains are made for. Find out how!
NotePlan is a daily planning tool in Bullet Journal style for pros, combining a calendar with plain-text markdown notes and embedded to-dos — all in one place.
- Your notes are saved in simple text files, so the data is always safe and accessible in your iCloud Drive - not hidden away in some online database
- Write markdown to-dos embedded into your daily notes and organise them using simple formatting like headings, bold, italic, links, etc.
- Capture important things in projects notes which are not attached to a date and schedule them from there into your calendar
- Integrates with iCloud calendars and Reminders
- A distraction-free, minimal design lets you focus on your tasks
- Customise NotePlan by choosing from a set of light and dark themes
If you have a turbulent schedule and tons of things to keep track of but never enough time, NotePlan is perfect for you. Save time planning and never let anything fall through the cracks.
- The Markdown editor lets you write your tasks rapidly without even touching the trackpad or mouse
- The monthly and weekly calendar gives you a birds-eye view of what’s coming next
- A list with open tasks and badges in the calendar let you keep track of your current to-dos
- Capture ideas, links, memos or anything that’s important for you on a given day
- Save “sticky” things in your project notes
Good news! NotePlan 2 on macOS just launched, check it out.
