Craft Review

I have really enjoyed using Craft the past few days. I tried using Notion a couple of times in the past but it never worked for me. Same with Evernote and Bear, I could never stick with them long term. I have always preferred folders for organization and tag based Note systems always caused me a lot of mental stress. Craft being a folder based system is what drew me to it after reading MacStories review. I downloaded it, thought this looks nice, and didn’t use it and deleted it.

I am reading through The Bible and wanted something to take and store notes in. I started out in Drafts, one of my most used apps but wasn’t entirely happy with it for that purpose. I reread MacStories review of Craft and decided to dive in again. I’m glad I did because Craft feels like home, even in the short time I’ve been using it.

In addition to the Bible study notes mentioned above, I am using Craft to keep track of books I want to read with links to the books on Amazon or Apple Books. As I was working on this post, I read Chris Hannah’s post on using Craft to write blog posts and laughed a little because my thoughts mirror his, except for him using Ghost. If I post something to, I’ll export it to Drafts and post it. If I post something to my Blot site, I can export the markdown file directly to the appropriate folder in Dropbox. If a post needs photos I use shortcuts to upload the photos to either my Blot assets folder or Both shortcuts resize the image, and copy the markdown image link to the clipboard. Here is the shortcut for Blot and here is the shortcut for

Craft is easily my favorite notes I have ever used. I always thought because of my job, I didn’t need a dedicated notes app other than Drafts but Craft has changed my mind.
