- 1Password..

Mobile:

+100 Makes finding files so much easier!

I also use Scanner, some freeware by Steffen Gerlach, a tool that uses a sunburst chart to display the usage of your hard disk or other media. The nice thing is that it shows all the major files and folders from all directory levels at the same time, allowing me to find what is eating space on e.g. smaller SSD systems.

Simplenote. It's a free notepad which syncs everything in it across all your devices. It's available for Android, Windows, Linux and IOS.

If you have a Windows/Apple laptop and an iPad, Duet display is fantastic.

Why not Google Keep then? It's a chrome app:
And can be opened as its own Window:
725176

They promised integration with Google Assistant back in Google I/O 2018, not sure what happened there, Google being Google again.


For simple text lists with text formatting, reminder scheduling, archiving, collaborator, and image upload, plus option to open/send to Google Docs makes it really useful for when quick notes change to essays.

There's also this drawing feature, seems stupid:
725180
(Apologies for the bad handwriting, was using a mouse).

Plus the OCR grab from text is perfectly fine:
725184725182

Don't see the need to move to a different set of software when you can use Google's existing stuff for 99% of tasks.


And all of it is integrated at calendar.google.com:
725190
And tasks is also there, though I don't use it as I have Jira for any work related stuff, and personal stuff gets reminder set by Google assistant (as can be seen on the calendar)
