Really love the desktop app but I cannot get it to reliably sync with the iOS app. I imported ~50 pages from Notion (not many images), and a few of them made it to the mobile app over 24 hours but vast majority have not.
Only other thing that seems really strange is no keyboard shortcut to toggle a checkbox in the desktop app.
Love the overall mission here and excited to see improvements!
For me I think it’s just a simplicity thing. Anytype seems to have a lot of complexity built into it in order to support the many “types” and the idea of creating a canonical database for your life, whereas Reflect is just a note-taking app (with some additional nice features for meetings, people, books, etc.).
I just fired up Anytype again to try it out and it just feels cumbersome to create a few simple notes and link them together.
Thanls for sharing these insights! I agree that Anytype has a steeper learning curve because of its flexibility. You need to understand the structure of Blocks, Objects, Types, Relations and Templates first, or the notes you write will end up in a place where you cannot find it,especially if search is not great yet.
I hope that the following topic will gain enough traction to be implemented soon to lower the amount of friction when simply writing your content:
