Post and reply to comments, so you can keep projects moving forward even if you’re not at your desk.

See everything that’s incoming from your team—like comments, shares, and @mentions—so you can catch up while on the go.

Perhaps the best app for notes but…

It needs a dark mode. It’s perhaps the best app I’ve come across for notes and the only thing it seems to be missing is dark mode so I’m not burning my eyes out at night when I have a sudden idea I need to jot down. The formatting options are spectacular with header 2, header 1, bold, etc. And I like that you can collapse the headers to focus on the rest of the document on the web version and this should be on mobile as well. We should also be able to add hyperlinks.

We can pictures, and tables. We can create folders for better organization. The one thing that drew me to this app apart from the others was SYNTAX HIGHLIGHT SUPPORT! Everything in this app is beautiful and genius. Overall, it needs a dark mode to be truly perfect. Thank you for this awesome app!

My to-go project management tool and wiki

I’ve been using Paper for 3-4 years now. I switched from Evernote, and I later considered Notion. What I like about Paper is that it has a beautiful user interface and limited capabilities to procrastinate, messing with how the space looks. It's straightforward to use, which has helped me get everyone I work with to use it. My favorite feature is creating tasks across different workspaces, and I can still see assignments by due date or workspace. This feature has enabled me to give life to my strategy documents, as each tactic has a link to its workspace. In this approach, everything we do now puts at the forefront what we said we were going to do to avoid getting distracted with shiny objects. Finally, Paper has also been a great tool to document all our processes to facilitate delegating tasks and onboarding new team members. Finally, finally, I love the keyword shortcuts!

I love Paper for all the things it doesn’t do.

I’ve been using Paper for a long time and I love that it does a few things really well and then just gets out of my way. I love offline mode and syncing, it is great for writing in a park, on a plane, or anywhere else without service.

I wish there was 1:1 feature parity between the browser and apps, and I hate the way it tries to organize my files, but otherwise I have few complaints. A solid 4/5 stars.
