Pros

I love their CNAME feature and what i will love more is their whitelisting my workspace all under one roof.
I love the fact this amazing note-taking web app has a fully syncing android and ios app. Nimbys are just so amazing as it is not just a note-taking app, rather it can do much more.
Good replacement for Evernote and very easy to switch from Evernote to Nimbus because of the good import function.

Pros

I love the integrated templates that help me quickly launch new projects or tasks. Also I can easily integrate information coming from my computer, internet or other apps, It just an amazing idea.
Organizing notes or dashboard is super easy and fun. The feature of creating a note into another note then linking it to a line in a note is really helpful and it helps you make wonder.
This is great for a shared list for people to have visibility on. It was great for our team to see what everyone was doing, add comments and notes to each other.

Cons

Impossible sorting (defining the order of) workspaces and notes manually. Sporadic not working article captures (only at the beginning of my work; probably just bad luck ;-) ).
As a project manager I’ve found that to be confusing and disappointing.
When I choose a new system or tool the first question I ask myself is: how do I leave it and take my data with me. Will I get stuck and my data taken hostage.

Cons

The offline mode for Notion is frankly quite bad as you have to preload the pages when you have internet beforehand. Otherwise, your notes would be inaccessible.
Now that we use Notion, we're much more organized. The last program we used was boycotted by nearly half the team because of how difficult it was to navigate.
Notion changed my perception about the note taking apps. I use Notion mostly for organize my notes, preventing them from turning into mess.

Nimbus Note

Very Versatile. Very Useful

Reviewed 2 years ago

I haven't used Nimbus Note long, but I already know I can do so much with it. I look forward to using Nimbus Note to organize my work life.

Pros

NImbus Note is extremely versatile with a lot of features. Their screen capture tool is the best I've used. There's many templates to choose from to help expedite the notetaking process and the organizing of information. I also really like how Nimbus Note allows screen recordings to be recorded and uploaded into the platform.

Cons

The Nimbus Note clipper could be better. It's not as good as what I've seen with Notion, but I expect Nimbus to improve the product.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review, it's great that you like Nimbus Note and Nimbus Capture. Nimbus Web Clipper is on its way to improvement.

Nimbus Note

Perfect for specific use cases, decent for the rest

Reviewed 2 years ago

I am slowly making a friendship with Nimbus. I've been Evernote user for years, both for personal and work-related tasks. I see how much Nimbus team did to meet the expecations, and in my case – they overdelivered, which is outstanding. I am more and more convinced to move all my notes from Evernote to Nimbus, and don't even look at Notion.

Pros

I love how it combines the feeling of a “standard” note (like in Evernote) with enhanced, modern features (like in Notion). That's exactly something I was looking for. And I love tables!

Cons

I am not yet fully convinced that Nimbus is a piece of software that will last and will be developed for many years to come. That trust is crucial for a note-taking tool that I want to rely on every day. That's not a weakness, just a tiny thing that makes me careful for now and not allow me to entirely jump in.

Vendor response

Hi Jakub! Thanks for your review. We understand your concern, Nimbus is on market since 2015 and we are growing and becoming even more stable, so jump in and welcome onboard.

Pros

This is a great note taking app similar to Notion in how you can add different types of objects such as tables images and video in addition to normal styled text

Cons

It isn’t as fast to load as other apps I’ve used. It’s not a major issue but a bit noticeable

Nimbus Note

All in one note taking application

Reviewed 2 years ago

I use note-taking applications a lot. Before Nimbus, I was using Notion and OneNote. But there were some things missing from OneNote that Notion did better, and vice versa. Nimbus strikes the right balance. Although the UI doesn't look very polished, but the features and use cases are wide. Also, setting up the CNAME allows me to set up password-protected workspaces on my domain. There are some minor bugs and nuances as of now. The support responds timely and is helpful.

Pros

CNAME for team plan Pretty affordable pricing for small teams of 5 people Support is very responsive Other tools like clipper and screen recorder are great add-ons

Cons

The app on the iPad needs some improvement Little buggy as of now, the UI seems a little old fashioned The OCR struggles sometimes The sidebar UI needs to be more compact and intuitive

Hi Himanshu! Thanks for your review. Recently we updated our iPad app and going to improve it even more, so stay with us!

Alternative to Evernotes , Google notes, OneNote

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have been using combination of Quip, Google notes and OneNote. Very Easy to use note taking application for your personal and business needs. Available in pretty much available in any major platform. Though their web version is the most mature. It has offline access for use on mobile phone and computer without internet available.

Pros

very Easy to use note taking application for your personal and business needs. Available in pretty much available in any major platform. I like the OCR in photos when I take photos from meeting and able to search the text within the photos.I also like the ability to email my paper note directly into NimbusNote using smart tags so that it goes in my custom folders in NimbusNote.

Cons

It can be a bit slow to open and sync notes. Not able to do note linking like what is possible to remnote or complex tables like Notion (Link tables within tables)

Vendor response

Thank you for your feedback, Leo! We are constantly working on speed and sync improvement.

Nimbus Notes is an Evernote Killer

I have used many tools, but getting this is a no brainer. It has replaced notion and other screen capturing applications for me. This is a no-brainer and if your on the fence, just get it. You won't regret it.

Cons

I would love the ability to edit saved images similar to several competing products.

The All In One Note Solution

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Nimbus Note is very easy to use. I was previously using Notion, but Nimbus offered a much better way to organize all of my notes, tasks, etc. in a way that made sense for me and my business. Its organization is more similar to Evernote, but with fewer restrictions and more features.

Cons

There are a few minor features that I used in Notion, such as being able to turn any text line into its own page for more detailed notes, but I rarely use this feature.

I am a lawyer, I need to share documents. My client is reluctant to a private area or erp. Nimbus allows me to upload documents in an orderly fashion and give access to the client. In a simple and visual way. It solves my problem.

Pros

When I met Nimbus. I did not know Notion which is more economical. However, NIMBUS is much more advanced, safe and practical. It is the best solution currently on the market by far. In addition, it is always being updated and communication with support is fluid.

Cons

I have not encountered any bugs. Although the app can be improved.

One place for all the stuff

Reviewed 2 years ago

Mostly positive, I run my side business, day job, further education and personal life on this tool. I can't wait for 2021 where they want to add more Notion-like features plus unique ones that no other note taking / workspace apps have.

Pros

It is very versatile, easy to use, localized into my native language and the team behind the product are very transparent, honest and open for feedback. I also really like the web clipper and the capturing tool that come complimentary with my business account.

Cons

Not many integrations with other tools (API/Zapier/...), the databases are a little weak (no formulas or relations) and collaboration tools still need a bit of work (no comments feaature or similar communication options yet).

The Leader in Enterprise Note Management

Reviewed 8 months ago

I'm a lawyer and have been searching for a program of which I can make and store case notes together with legal research. I can write comprehensive documents and insert references and media into the note as blocks. The entire system is whitelabelled and accessible as my custom URL in the event I want to provide clients with access to their file. Nimbus Notes provides the functionality of a complete case management tool and I'm honestly astounded at how well it has been executed.

Pros

Simple and easy to setup with comprehensive functionality and excellent user interface. I have been searching for a solution like Nimbus Notes for a long time and have tried all of the major offerings. I consider Nimbus to have all of the functionalilty of Evernotes with the ease of use and understated look of Notion.

Cons

There is really nothing I do not like about Nimbus, it literally has everything I could want.

Nimbus Note

The tab that is constantly open

Reviewed 2 years ago

My note-taking became smoother than ever. I used to have Evernote back in the day so I don't honestly know how much Nimbus Note is better than them. I tried Notion and I felt Nimbus Note AI to be better and feel better. About Nimbus Note, I love how I have all my thoughts in one place. It's like a borrowed brain, to uncluttered mine.

Pros

As a copywriter, I spend far too much online doing "research." And it's easy to stumble upon something I believe might be useful in the future. I have tones of draft emails, text files on my computer, random notes on my phone... And do you know what happened to all those notes? Me neither. Because I always lacked structure and organization to know where to find them when I needed them. With Nimbus Note, my note-taking is like a well-rehearsed orchestra. I know where things are. The tags, folders, and workspaces make everything so smooth. I can add pictures or documents. I absolutely love the outline option where I can immediately see what's inside each note, making it easy to access it. Right now, it's the only tab that gets to stay open throughout my day.

Cons

When adding a table on a note, I wish I could freeze the top line or something. Just like we do on a normal spreadsheet. Other than that, the workspaces, especially at the beginning, can be a bit tricky. More than once I thought I've lost all my work just to find it in a different workspace. It can get your heart to run faster, but everything ends up being fine.

Vendor response
