Noting down

I was currently looking for an online notebook which had a column displaying all my notes, and a preview of the currently selected note on the side. I found a few.. Springnote, Helipad, Jottit… I also researched on many other platforms as well which I will be reviewing later.

  • Springnote:
    Pros: Good interface, Great history feature.
    Cons: No markdown. Lacks continuous development. Doesn’t support the most used browser (arguably), Chrome. Server issues.
  • Helipad:
    Pros: Decent Interface.  Quick. Markdown support.
    Cons:  Still needs mouse.
  • Jottit: Unarguably, the best.
    Pros: Markdown. Extremely simple interface. Keyboard Shortcuts.
    Cons: Cumulative History like springnote not available. I am still figuring out a way to rename the notes.

Keyboard Shortcuts for Jottit:
I did not find any help documenting the same. Hence I feedback’ed. Aaron (from the Jottit team) replied promptly with the  following answer.
Shortcuts are “access key” +:
+ d for delete
+ h for history
+ e for edit
+ m for new page
+ g for cancel

Access Key (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Access_key) may be Alt (+Shift) in Windows.
