I’m experimenting again with Tot by the Inconfactory. It’s a straightforward text app that gives you 7 plain text notes. It syncs across iOS and macOS. I’ve actually talked about it before a long time ago.
I’ve been using a “Working Memory” text file extensively lately. I keep a text file on my screen where I jot things down throughout the day. This could be meeting notes, ideas, or even short blog posts (like this one). I’ve been using Typora, a clean markdown editor, on my Windows machine. But on my Mac and iPhone, I’m using Tot.
Now and then, usually at the end of the day, I’ll go through and delete most of it, move tasks to an appropriate home, move notes, etc.
It’s a great way to quickly jot things down without jumping in and out of other applications.
