Why do users choose Nimbus Note?

Before Nimbus, we’d have to share our information using a variety of sources such as Google Docs for the copy, Google Sheets for the contact lists, etc. It was messy and the tools weren’t intuitive for our clients to use. Nimbus could serve as a ‘backend’ for a client facing portal. It was incredibly easy to pick up and start designing pages for clients that included all the info they’d ever need.


“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such a simple yet versatile app that you can literally do EVERYTHING with. Special thanks to the developers of Nimbus Note for the convenient organization of the workspace.”


Before purchasing any paid product, I weigh all pros & cons. I made the decision to purchase the business version of Nimbus Note very quickly, because the advantages of this service are visible, and I still haven’t found any drawbacks. I have been using it in my work for many years.
