Ratings and Reviews
I just wanted to write this review to thank the developer for their excellent work getting Org-mode to finally work on iOS. I have tried Mobile Org before but it just was a sync tool that didn’t work on the move.
This app needs to get more recognition in the Emacs community. I stumbled onto it by accidentally searching for Org mode on the App Store. While syncs are not always 100% on time, it works for my use case. I generally want to capture my tasks, notes on the go and use everything else read-only 50% of the time. So far I haven’t run into any conflicts.
Hats-off to the developer for their thoughtfulness that went behind their UI. I was so impressed that I became an annual subscriber to the project just to keep them motivated. Please spread the word in the emacs community so the app can thrive and benefit everyone. Thanks again.
Data loss is breaking trust
I love this app and I am very happy that it is here and there are great things about it but...
This app keeps losing my text input when I switch apps to copy text from another one!
It does a refresh when I switch back and then dumps my input
Other note taking and text editing apps do not behave this way
Why is it using so much memory that it can't survive app switching when other apps can?
Will you prioritize background memory usage optimization or at least cache text input so it isn't lost?
The real ux miss here is that you can't save what you've written without losing context. The app provides no in-place save and it also does not auto-save!!!
If you are editing something and save it the item is filed away and you have to go dig it back up which is a huge flow disruption so that's not workable
I am finding myself copying any unsaved text to drafts before app switching and then copying it back and that can't stand
This is not cool
I added stars because I really want to see more org support on this platform. I know this is a small team and it pains me to say anything negative about such an amazing effort but I have been paying a subscription for a long time and this reliability stuff seems like table stakes and I think it's fair to expect
I'm going to keep using this and I think anyone reading this should use it too but be careful about potential weird data loss and copy any big edits you make to be safe!
My Favorite App
Hands down my favorite app on my iPhone. I am a heavy org-mode user but I do not believe that is 100% necessary to find this app useful. If you are willing to learn and configure (especially if you enjoy doing that stuff), this app will allow you to eliminate several apps on your phone. Beorg serves as my calendar, journal, shopping list, and generally just the place where i jot down random thoughts in my head (for future writing/poetry/reading). All of it is organized as simple plain text files and synced synced using Dropbox.
As i notice recurring use-cases (e.g. books to read list), Beorg allows me to setup template to quickly capture them from my home screen. The url scheme also allows me to link this to a shortcut (e.g. im reading on my kindle, copy some text that i find inspiring, run a shortcut that places that text in todays journal entry)
I could go on and am forgetting so many things. But as I said, my most-used app. absolutely wonderful and i am very satisfied. More than just a “display org agenda on my iphone” app.
