Anybody playing around with the NVultra beta? I was admitted to the program a couple of weeks ago, fiddled with it for a minute, found the interface confusing and backed off.
Tried it out again in the last day or so and think I like it.
I’ve thought for some time that somebody ought to make a Finder replacement for writers and researchers. A Finder replacement that prioritizes documents over other files. Something like DevonThink or Keep It, but with a simplified interface and using the same document formats, folders, and folder structure that you see when you open the Finder.
One important element for NVultra is that, while it’s focused on plain text and markdown, it can display documents in other formats and open them using their native apps. So you can have your Pages, Microsoft Word, PDFs, etc., in there and NVultra can open them just fine.
Liability: No iPad or iPhone apps. However, that’s what the Files app is for.
Come to think of it, I think I’ve also described EagleFiler here, which I literally have not played with in 10+ years. Maybe I ought to take a second look at that as well.
For me, NVultra is complementary to Drafts. I use Drafts on the Mac as a scratch pad, for notes I’ll delete in a few minutes – for example, composing complicated tweets. NVultra is for documents I plan to keep for a while.
