An essential and beautiful app for org mode on the go

This app has been a game-changer for me. I use it to write and edit todo lists, notes and journal when I’m away from my computer and the app seamlessly syncs these with files and backups through the cloud (I use iCloud). It is also fantastic for inserting links to items (like webpages, snippets of code) on my iPhone.

I use emacs org mode for almost everything I do: keeping todo lists, plans, notes from meetings or research ideas, drafting papers, preparing presentations. (I transitioned to org mode after trying many other “productivity” programs, because none of them gave me the interface I needed between all of these functions.)

Until Plainorg came along, I used org mode and accessed my org files only when I was sitting in front of a computer. None of the other mobile options gave me an easy sync with the cloud. (Maybe I’m just not tech-savvy enough!) I think I was also turned off by the other app’s clunky interfaces on an iPhone. This meant I carried around paper notebooks to jot down items, or ideas, as they occurred to me when away from a laptop or desktop. But, this was not ideal – I missed nuances: todo actions that would pop up when I’m writing notes, or detailed URLs (when I was too lazy to collect them under some easy-to-find-again bookmark).

Plainorg is the first app I have found which works on an iPhone and it works brilliantly! I've reached out to the developer on a few small issues and he was very quick to respond. I recommend it very highly to anyone who is using org mode.

The beautiful interface is incentive enough to start using org mode I think, if you’re not using it already.

Huge thanks for the thorough review! I’m glad you’re finding it useful.
