Hm, I’m sorry you had a disappointing experience, @moritz. I use NotePlan every day for my personal task management, and the symptoms you’ve described there are definitely unusual. Setting up preferences is a good idea, and will probably obviate the asterisk issue you obviously had (I’ve set dashes/hyphens as my “task indicators”, and use asterisks for bullet lists). I’ve not experienced the “vanishing task” issue you describe, either – tasks given dates/deadlines in notes appear without fail in the “references” section of the relevant daily note.

There are still a few rough edges, yes, but Eduard is working very hard to remove them and does an amazing amount of work in the background. There’s also a very active community testing, advising and enjoying NotePlan. But it’s horses for courses – the paradigm won’t appeal to everyone. The app is 200% more elegant than it was just six months ago, and the addition of themes has made the whole thing more entertaining, too.

It’s been a while since I last wrote about NotePlan, but after a brief falling-out, I’ve returned to the fold and am re-examining my relationship with this extraordinarily powerful piece of software.

It’s amazing what you discover when you start looking at an app afresh. In this case, the fact that NotePlan can mimic a kanban app. So apart from opening notes in new windows (something NotePlan has been able to do for quite a while), you can also “split” the main window into multiple columns (up to 4, excluding the sidebar and the calendar sidebar).

And there are other things I hadn’t really taken on board – wikilinks, backlinks, folding under headers, and most recently transclusion (or “synced lines”, as Eduard has called them, although I prefer the other term he uses, “synced blocks”). It’s still a beta feature, but solid enough to be usable, and it means you can embed a block in multiple notes so that it’s automatically updated in all of them, regardless of which note you edit the block in.

I nearly succumbed to the temptation to resubscribe to Ulysses, but after comparing NotePlan’s most recent changes, I went with the latter instead…

I own Noteplan 2, and in considering trying out v.3 I was shocked to see that the subscription price doubled to $120/yr for the personal Pro plan. I did a quick check on Reddit and saw that Eduard raised the price at the beginning of the summer, although current users are grandfathered in at the old price.

If there was notice about the price increase I obviously missed it.

I still might try the app for the 2-week free trial (and maybe even splurge an extra $12 for one month after that) but I doubt I’ll spend $120/yr for Noteplan. It seems overpriced, and makes competitors comparatively more appealing. For example, at $70/year AmpleNote has the potential to offer similar or additional functionality while also obviating the need for an app like Todoist.

Completely agree. I used the summer break to re-evaluate my note taking and project planning workflow. After trying out a few new apps and approaches (some I learned about here, so thanks) I decided to resubscribe to Noteplan 3.0 as I cam to realize the combined note and task approach really resonates with the way I work. However, I was surprised and put off by the dramatic price hike between the time my subscription lapsed and last week. IMO, Eduard is doing himself a disservice by perhaps overestimating how much people are willing to pay for subscription software in this category.

Amplenote looks like a very promising alternative.

Another option is a new app called Routine, which combines task tracking and notes. It is free (for now)

https://www.routine.co/

It obviously doesn’t have the track record of Amplenote, so there is a measure of risk involved, but I get the feeling Routine is here to stay.

Mind you, this isn’t an endorsement, as I have only dabbled with it. But I remain intrigued.
