Jot is that random piece of notes paper that lives in your menu bar. It’s a place for short lived storage for notes, ideas and things-to-tweet. There’s nothing to configure, it saves as you type.
Whenever you’re in deep work and something pops into your mind, simply add it to MonkeyMind. Just like in Spotlight. The entry will get added to the menu bar list and you can deal with it later.
Plume is a simple note-taking app that lets you write down your thoughts. It also has an inbuilt to-do list button that lets you quickly generate to-do lists.
