First time post here…

I’m a Mac user

Note taking for writing projects: Tinderbox (love it but know I’m not using it to its full potential)
Note taking for work related info, committees, etc: Workflowy
Note taking for patients (I’m a speech-language pathologist/academic): Curio since it allows me to embed audio and video files, the very flexible scrapbook approach just makes sense for covering diagnostic thinking, treatment planning, and data collection
Note taking that is very temporary: Noteaway - it sits in my menubar, has decent formatting ability, and will remain visible when other windows are active
Reference manager: Sente
Document searching: Foxtrot Pro - I love the ability to search my entire Sente database (~5000 journal articles) for the occurrence of 2 or more neighboring words
Writing: back and forth between Ulysses and Scrivener, Microsoft Word
Todos: Omnifocus

For 2016
Will probably explore other writing apps, something particularly useful for academic writing and collaboration.  Neither Ulysses or Scrivener have really clicked with me.  I might try Manuscripts, Authorea, Penflip, or Drafts (Draftin.com) or just dedicate more time to understanding Ulysses or Scrivener…
