Got it.  Thanks Simon.

Good example of hubris.

While I might be able to justify paying $30 a year, $60 is out of my range now that I’m retired. It’s probably a good thing. I don’t have nearly the planning tasks I had 6 months ago. In fact, I can probably do everything I need to do with Sheetplanner and Tinderbox.

I haven’t used NotePlan but I’m on the mailing list and the latest updates are interesting:

1. Now can use the .md extension for files, allowing you to use the same documents in other markdown apps that require this extension. This is especially targeted at Obsidian users

2. It now supports “backlinks” like Roam and Obsidian

On the downside (for me) it is not an outliner app like Roam, so there are no “block” links or embeds, but on the plus side it is the only one of these apps that seems to be a native Mac/iOS app. I still find it frustrating that Roam on iOS is so slow (it is basically a web app), and using 1Writer to access Obsidian on iOS is frustrating because it only supports some of the features of Obsidian. NotePlan also seems to have nice integration with the native reminder and calendar apps. For all these reasons I might give it a serious look.

So I gave it a solid try.

Great: Having a native app that works offline and syncs to my phone.

Better than I thought: The current version of Obsidian has come a long way, and there are starting to be some useful community plugins.

Still not good enough: It is just so much easier for me to use Roam Research to organize my data.

A markdown based solution might eventually work, someday, but it seems to me that how it works will be dependent so much on the design of a particular app that there isn’t much benefit to having my stuff in markdown rather than a database….

Dang, I hadn’t realised the latest NotePlan beta supports backlinks – but yes, it does, and does so rather intelligently (in that the backlinks appear at the top of the note rather than the bottom – currently a weak point of quite a few backlink-supporting notetaking apps).

I must congratulate Eduard!
