I am a historian, teacher, and a writer. I am looking for the best note-taking app for my use-case — Or in this case a second brain.
- markdown (preference for multi-markdown)
- note linking capabilities (active within app preferably)
- tags/smart folders/filters
My issue is this. Whether I am writing, researching or teaching I want quick access to evidence/data. I want to be able to catalogue data in a way that allows quick retrieval but also to be able to link notes together directly so that I can click the link directly in the note. In essence I am looking to create a plain text database with powerful search functions and note linking. One huge use-case for me is that I don’t lecture in my classroom and I need a quick method of accessing data on the fly so that I can answer student questions in real-time. This works relatively well in the app I already use, Bear. But I am not particularly fond of the “folder” (tag) management. I love tags, but not sure as a primary mode of organization. I am flirting with Ulysses (since I have a setapp subscription).
Any ideas, apps, workflows, suggestions?
