Brand new and already better than Bear and the like
I moved over to Craft from Bear, and I feel liberated. It is so much easier to organize, work in, and view than Bear. Importing Bear files was super easy with textbundle docs. While it does not have tags, I find the back links system work much better and between that and folders, it is easier to find what I need. Also, search is much more powerful in Craft. There are a few missing features that require workarounds, mostly around bringing content into the app, but the team is working on that. For a new app, I’m amazed at how much they have nailed right from the start. It actually feels like a more refined app than most that are years older, while also having a lot of the same functionality.
Stellar - but I wish it offered a sync choice...
The app is absolutely stellar: polished, clever, ingeniously designed, with small differences and tweaks that make it a real pleasure to use on all devices (I used it on an iMac, phone, and ipad). My trial is ending tomorrow, and I’m seriously thinking about subscribing... The only significant downside I see is the lack of option to choose the sync: I’d like to have a choice of syncing my docs using iCloud sync, and not company-managed [rented] servers. I understand that some of the features (like fast sync and sharing/collaboration) cannot work, or are difficult to manage on iCloud, but some software (Fantastical, for example) offer the choice of using the fully encrypted iCloud sync (and giving up some features, such as color-coded calendars), or using the developer’s sync, with all the high-end, innovative features. That’s the only negative I see in what is otherwise a spectacular version 1.
Things to work on but fantastic product and devs
i am also someone who is migrating from Notion for many of the features I expected for years. I love where they're taking the product and excited to see where it goes. This finally feels like a product on desktop and phone that can replace my simple notes app and bulkier apps (Notion, Evernote) for longer term research. There's some features that seem missing and some workflows that seem a bit wonky but it's a new product and frequent updates. They also have a discord channel and I love that there is feedback from the growing community on what features they want next and responsive devs in the same room ready to listen.
5 Star Document Creation and Productivity App
As a fiction writer, I’ve had a hard time finding a single app that its my needs for planning my work. They tend to either focus too much on simplicity and aesthetics of doument creation (like Bear) or on productivity and feature bloat (like Notion). Now, I’ve loved and used both apps, but have always wanted something that could effortlessly sit in between both poles of that spectrum. Enter Craft. It’s both aesthetic and simple in its document creation tools with just enough productivity features (such as wiki links and back links) to make it really useful for planning large projects. I’ve only been using it for about two weeks and I already love it.
Beautiful Clean Notes App
Things 3 has been my favorite app for years because it’s clean, robust, and is so fluid it’s almost a joy to use. That is exactly how I feel when I use this app. Fantastic start and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for Craft. The way this app handles media is unreal. Pictures show up perfectly and are neatly organized. The only complaints I have are that it’s a little hard to navigate at first and media imported from other apps (Castro and some files) creates broken links in Craft. But those are mild issues in an otherwise wonderful experience. I immediately subscribed because I want to support the development of this. Great work!
10 stars for Craft!
Love Craft! I've decided it is worth the yearly subscription; as there are so many uses for this fabulous new app. I'll be using it extensively for writing, creative ideas, lists, organizing, and more. Really appreciate the emphasis on visuals, as well. There is a slight learning curve; however, not to worry, as there are tons of extremely useful helps and examples in-app, online, and via e-mail. So excited about Craft! I see it replacing and consolidating many of my other note-taking, writing, and board-style apps.
Good experience writing and organizing, but...
i love apps that use apple-like attention for functionality, form & beauty. craft does all of this. it seems as writing, connecting information, and acessing it may be their sole focus, and they're doing it well. the experience reminds me of things 3 for GTD. i only give 4 stars because the program i'm looking for could also handle tasks and procedures. i know that's what notion is, but i really don't like how notion handles your data, and in it's flexibility it's compromised on beauty, plus it can get laggy. i'll continue to use the free app for now, but i'd give it 5 stars and purchase the upgrade if they expand.
Not as good as other markdown editors
Craft is essentially a markdown editor, but with some hiding of markdown syntax. I find the block structure a bit of a nuisance, and certainly not as flexible as normal text-based markdown editors. For example, if I have equations, I want to interleave them seamlessly in surrounding text, not create new blocks all the time. I suspect that for most people any attempt to use links and backlinks to structure documents and information will lead to a mess. In any case, the lack of share sheet importing makes Craft a very poor tool for that purpose. The subscription cost is ridiculously high for what you get as well. Although it is a nice-looking app, I see no compelling case for using it.
This app looks great and works great. I love the offline mode which really helps in my line of work where I go on ships for months at a time. The interface is the best I have used and I am a avid notion user as well. The offline mode is what really sells to me. I do wish for some spreadsheet type integration kind of like notion but I know it may take awhile. JUST PLEASE KEEP OFFLINE A THING!!! PLEASE. Thank you to the craft team for making a great product please keep it up and I hope to see more updates in the future. Eric
It seems like every few months i find a new note taking app that impresses me. Well, this takes the cake, it is AMAZING! The formatting and share features are superb, notes within notes brilliantly executed. Developer is constantly updating and adding new feautues to the application. It has never crashed on me and is fast. i then spend hours moving all my data from my old note taking app to the new and each time i think it is worth it.
Blocks are Best
If you’re familiar with such apps as Notion and Noto, you’ll know about the emerging design strategy of treating each piece of writing or other input in an app as a separate block that can be addressed separately and cleanly in composition and revision. Craft, in my experience, is the most thorough and elegant implementation of the blocks strategy to date. The more I use it, the more I like it, and I was so confident at the outset that I would like it that I signed up for a year of it almost immediately.
Would love to switch
I love the design, but the lack of keyboard shortcut for inserting a formula block is definitely killing me. I would also really prefer to have the option to do in-line TeX. I've also read that there is no "database" support yet. If these features were added, I would cancel my Notion subscription quite quickly to give this an honest shot. I haven't had the chance to try too many more features, but the app if fast, and it syncs quickly. Excited to see this developed further.
Absolute delight to use!
For a 1.0 launch, the polish in this app is something we haven’t seen in a long long time. As a reviewer mentioned, it’s apps like these and Things that focus on simplicity, design and just striking the right balance of pleasure and functionality which is very rare these days! Instant love! Hoping future improvements (not many!) from the developer and hope this rises to the top of apps that stays for a long long time
A Well Crafted and Supported Program
I have tried and subscribed to numerous programs for my IT studyies like Craft in the past, and none have even come close to supporting and releasing a product so rapidly as have the folks at Craft. Once the ability to handle tables is added. It will be the program that I feel is the closest to perfection for my study programs. It is well worth the subscription.
Great Notetaking and all-around writing app
I really don't have many/any complaints. The app is stable, works well across all my devices, it uses the design aesthetic... I only wish that I could increase/decrease the default scale/zoom of the page's content. I'm 35yo with 20/20 vision, and I find the default size of text paragraph text a little difficult to read on my iMac's 27" display. If Craft would PLEASE give me the ability to increase the scale, it would then be a "perfect" app.
