Your brain was made for having ideas, not storing them. In an era of information overload, having a second brain has become essential. Our brain is non-linear and we jump from idea-to-idea, all the time.
This is where tools like Reflect can help us associate ideas so that they are easier to remember and recall.
I've used Obsidian, RemNote, and Roam but they all come with their complexities and have huge learning curves. It took me at least 4-7 days to understand their features and how to fully take advantage of them. Reflect's UI is super intuitive and any noob (like me) can get started within minutes.
- Syncing Google Calendar to create a template for all meeting notes.
- Backlinking these meeting notes with relevant tags so you can see all meeting notes with different people or different departments under one tag.
- You can sync your Kindle highlights & notes which is really cool!
- You can publish your Kindle notes and share it with a public link.
- Sync your contacts from Google and it will create a separate tag for them under #people.
- Its chrome extension comes with a highlight feature with which you can highlight anything on the web & it will sync with the Reflect app under #links tag.
- All the tags are categorized as Books, Links, People, and custom tags you create on the app. I really love this feature!
- It obviously comes with the Graph feature and Dark mode.

- They don't have a feature to upload images while taking notes.
- I had trouble with syncing my meetings.
- There's no Discord or any group to connect with other Reflect note-takers.
- I couldn't create a separate folder within Reflect app.
- Obsidian - A second brain, for you, forever.
- Roam Research - A note-taking tool for networked thought.
