Transom Note-Taker for Writers

Description of App

Spend more time actually writing and less time fumbling through emails-to-self, messy notebooks, and clunky multi-purpose apps.

Transom is the free note-taking app — made for writers, by writers — that helps you capture and tag every little scrap of an idea so that you can find it whenever you're ready to write.

How it works: create a Thought to add it to your Transom notes. Easily add Tags and file it under a Project. When it's time to sit down and write, all those brilliant little gems will be right at your fingertips (and not buried in that old notebook — no, the other one. Or was it in an email?). Search by Tag, Project name, or use simple keyword search.

Once you've used a Thought, archive or delete it to declutter your list. And if you want to copy your Thoughts to something long-form, export as PDF or rich-text file.
