A search on this site for the word “Cling” produces a lot of the verbs, but I didn’t see any nouns—but if this was already discussed, I apologize for the redundancy.

Anyway, I ran across this new cloud-based notes and project manager app and thought it was interesting enough to share with everyone. It is a little Trello-like, but seems more fluid, and adaptable. For now it is free. There will be a premium plan, but I don’t know the cost. Just for the record, I am not recommending this. I tried it out enough to be intrigued, but I have no idea how it is while heavy lifting of notes and projects.

Very interesting. I’m giving it a spin and it’s actually quite good. Thanks for sharing!

Steve, Are you still using this?

I signed up on March 7 with a free account and have used it to look around — and enough to be impressed.


Am I being too hard on these people to feel put off by this email in the early morning of March 11th? Keep in mind, I just signed up on Thursday night and I get this on Monday morning:


Hi Mike,

you recently signed up, but have not used Cling since. What a bummer. I am really eager to know the reasons. I have 3 possible explanations:

- Cling does not provide the features you think it should.
- Cling has bad usability or lacks features.
- Something did not work.

Anyhow, I would be really happy if you took the time, replied to my email and told me your thoughts. This would help a lot.

Warm regards,

3 possible explanations? How about…
I signed up, I like the app, I expect to use it, I even placed a link on my start page, but…. I have a life offline! To write me 3 1/2 days after I sign-up and sound offended because I haven’t been back, calls it “a bummer” and claims he only has three explanations, and wants me to let him know why. Really?

I get those automated emails occasionally from well-meaning but over-zealous developers. You ought to reply and tell the developer exactly what you just told us. Good test to see how he takes criticism!

I haven’t been using Cling. Not because I don’t like it, but because I am already using Trello and a couple of other apps. I will be keeping an eye on Cling to see how it develops. I wouldn’t be put off by the email… it seems like he genuinely wants your input. Funny though, if I got the same email, I didn’t notice it.
