Hello Anytype team, I am very happy to participate in your product testing program in the past few days. Anytype is a great product and its speed is so damn impressive, but it still need some improves in the UI/UX design.
Vertical Tabs and Tab groups
These features are already included in some Web Browsers and have become very useful to my workflow. Therefore, I think any note taking app, like Anytype, should add these two features to support multitasking.
I think Anytype should be put into Focus mode. The more features it has, the more distracting the user is. So Focus mode can eliminate all distracting features on the screen, so users can simply focus on the note that appears on the screen.
Improved Action button and the line adding button (+)
Finally, I think the Action button should be clearer, and the line adding button should be static and appear fixed at the same line I’m writing.
Please consider my UI/UX suggestions and keep perfecting your great product.
@div3xi I’m even tempted to go full on craft because of their approach design and usability which is rarity. I think anytype team should see their way of selecting multiple block which is superbly more convenient.
@Srinath Oh, interesting. I haven’t had a chance to test Craft yet because it was Mac-only until recently. But I do have access to the web beta now so I’ll give it a try! Not sure if it will replicate the desktop version tab behavior though, so if not I will look into that as well.
@Oshyan you should definitely try it too. It’s like notion and things 3 combined. Animation, design, functionality and usage is just simply pleasant. I don’t like database as in notion because of slowness, but except that craft is doing a great job. Wish they are cross platform, if it truly becomes like that people should move to it. That’s my frank thought period.
