Notion Labs, Inc. has finally brought its note-taking, task, and general workspace app to Android, bringing an all-in-one replacement and supplement to a huge variety of time and activity management tools. For those that aren't already aware, Notion is typically considered an enterprise application because it can accomplish so many tasks that are useful on that front. More directly, it acts as a one-stop hub in which the projects of more than 50 applications can be embedded either individually or shared with a team or group of people. It's akin to Evernote but with some seriously boosted capabilities such as Slack and calendar integrations. Plus, editing files on the platform is drag-and-drop, making it very easy to organize content. All of those are easily interconnected and available across browser, desktop, and mobile apps. With the launch of its Android app, the aptly titled Notion – Notes, Tasks, Wikis, users on the platform can now access all of those features and more natively.
Perhaps best of all, the free version of the subscription service is well-rounded and pricing for more is relatively inexpensive. The app itself is also completely free to download. Without paying anything, registered users get access to an unlimited number of members to the content, 1,000 blocks of storage, and only have to put up with a 5MB file upload limit. Each piece of content is considered a block, so that's a decent amount of storage space. Meanwhile, there are more than 20 different block types, and images, web bookmarks, and code snippets are supports as well. The paid subscription starts at $4 per month and only allows for one member but it opens storage up to "unlimited" and there's no file upload size limit. That also unlocks permission controls to keep uploaded and created content safe from unwanted changes or sharing and gives subscribers priority support. Administrative tools are added at the team level, which costs $8 per month per user and allows up to 50 team members.
One thing that often holds note-taking, content creation, and task management apps back is that they sometimes either support web syncing or offline content but rarely support both. Not only will Notion allow for that but it also allows for multiple members of a group to work on a block simultaneously with commenting and mentioning available to keep everything organized. Organization of the blocks themselves is accomplished by storing everything as nested pages and subpages. That eliminates folders and the clutter those can bring without removing what makes that type of storage useful.
