Played around myself for a bit.  It’s an interesting concept — seems somewhat specific (not overly so) to the designer’s preferences.  I don’t fault the owner or the beta being unpolished, and will keep my eye on Roam Research.  Preferably, it would store documents locally with the cloud as an option, otherwise I don’t see using it for anything much.

It’s been a month since Roam came on my radar and wondering if anyone here is finding it useful?

I’ve been following the developer on Twitter and the app seems to be gaining traction/appreciation.

I haven’t used the app very much, but I noticed that you can “book time” with the developer in half-hour blocks to discuss the app, how to use it, etc. No cost. What a great idea! Maybe it’ll catch on.

It’s a lovely extension of the Workflowy/Dynalist philosophy, I must say. I’m especially impressed by the way it draws phrases that are identical to page names to your attention (as “unlinked references”) so you can turn them into actual links if you want to.

But I’m still mourning REXnotes, which was a very cool idea indeed. If only there had been an offline version…

Same applies to RoamResearch, actually – I’d love to see an offline version.

Does anyone here know whether an offline version is planned?
