🤓 Personal Knowledge Management

Use it for time-shifting your content consumption.
One of the most popular read-later apps. With one click, it lets you save any interesting articles, videos, recipes or whatever else you come across while browsing the internet.

Use it for getting the most out of what you read.
Collect all your notes in one central place. Import all highlights from your favourite reading platforms, add notes and tags, and export to your note-taking tool of choice.

Readwise sends you a daily email with a selection of your ebooks and articles highlights. Reading and highlighting is great, but what’s the point if you never look at those highlights again? The idea is that as you continue to review your highlights, you’ll recall more and grow your knowledge over time. It’s the compound effect for knowledge.

Roam Research
Use it for note-taking and storing.
Note taking tool designed for networked thought. Use it to collate all your notes and highlights, own ideas and writing.

Favourite function: Clipboard History.
