Nimbus Note overview

What is Nimbus Note?

Nimbus Note is a cross-platform information repository & note-taking solution that allows users to create and edit notes, customize screenshots, save web pages, and instantly share files with their colleagues. The software offers a web interface plus native apps for Android, iPhone, Windows and Mac, and supports a range of use cases including education, product development, HR & recruiting, remote team management, knowledge repository creation, and more.

With Nimbus Note, users can create wikis, documents, notes, databases, tables, spreadsheets, checklists, and other files, and edit these from multiple devices. The collaborative workspace allows teams to create and edit files together, with the ability to also share information publicly. Internal links let users keep add notes related to content. Users can also capture screenshots and screencasts, add annotations, and extract data through optical character recognition (OCR). Additionally, Nimbus Web clipper allows users to capture complete or partial web pages, PDFs, or emails, add annotations, tasks, and text highlighting, and store them for later or send on to colleagues.

Nimbus Note uses end-to-end encryption to secure screenshots and screencasts, and allows users to add passcode protection to restrict access to sensitive data. Audio and video can be recorded through the Nimbus Note app on iOS and Android phones, and files can also be added by forwarding to the internal email address.

This is one of the best investment I have made. I haven't seen so many research and documentation tools under the same roof before. I regularly use this and expect use utilize more when a few features, that are currently missing, comes up.

Pros
The thing I liked most about Nimbus is the way that my documents are tagged and stored in folders. I frequently clip articles while I browse or from emails. All this information is neatly saved to the respective project and further tagged to their appropriate section. I can't imagine going back to printing PDFs of articles and saving them in cloud drives. Nimbus cut down my document filing time to a fraction.

Cons
Nimbus doesnt have a mind map, nor a document map. Both these tools are rather in demand recently. We could create mindmaps in other tools and connect them to Nimbus. But having a document map showing the interconnection between notes, snippets, images etc simply takes your research to a whole new level. I really hope Nimbus brings this feature in near future.

Response from Nimbus Web


Thanks for your feedback, Jaheen! Great that you are going paperless with the help of Nimbus Note. Thanks for the suggestion! We are adding more and more services that you can easily embed in the note and edit your mind map right into Nimbus Note. Also, we are working on Zapier integration which will allow integrating with other needed services. It will be great if you can share your thoughts on how mind maps should work within Nimbus Note, you can use the mail team@nimbusweb.co. We are looking forward to your thoughts.

Nimbus Notes is Indispensable

My overall experience had been very pleasent. I plan to continue using Nimbus Notes for a very long time.

Pros
What I like most about Nimbus Note is the fact that I can create folders and sub-folders for the information I need to save for future use. The templates and favorites folders save me so much time when it comes to finding a specific document. Also with Nimbus Notes, you are able to create "to-do" list, add attachments, set reminders and get public links for your documents. You can even change the appearance of your document and export documents/notes! Nimbus Notes is so much better than the other app I've been using. In Fact, I have just about completely stopped using the competitors' app. Now, I'm strictly a Nimbus Notes user. I love Nimbus Notes!😁

Cons
I really can't think of anything that dissatisfied me about Nimbus Notes. I haven't had one bad experience. The only thing I can think of is that I couldn't figure out how to access the app at first. It took me quite a while to figure that out.

Nimbus is great for small teams and individual users. Prefer over more well known options.

My experience has been enjoyable. The bugs get resolved in decent time, so the product quality is maintained.

Pros
Great for management of notes and links . You can keep Nimbus synced near-realtime on most mobileOS phone/tablets, and most DesktopOS computers, and of course online . The organization features by category / tag / folder & subfolder hierarchically / search / etc. are pretty good. Better than Evernote for my purposes - since it is useful to maintain interim clippings from various sources, on the web or otherwise. The OCR function works pretty well in the languages I have tried thus far.

Cons
There should be better screenshot ability, like CloudApp. Being able to create short clips and gif files from recordings would be nice. The tables and spreadsheet features are simplistic. They should offer integrations to reference management tools. They should experiment integrating the Signal protocol, so that their cloud storage doesn’t necessarily need to be utilized for some of the ‘partitions’ of the notes. Some of these are not cons per say, but they would make Nimbus have a better differentiation versus their competitor vendors.

Response from Nimbus Web


Please check our updates apps - Nimbus Capture allows to record videos in GIF format. Also, we launched a new editor which has advanced tables and databases. You can check the details at https://nimbusweb.me/feature-note-editor.php
