Why choose Nimbus?

Faster, stable, flexible, responsive, user-friendly, value for your money… what else can we say?

🎧 Responsive Support

Still can't reach Notion support? Come over here! We may be relatively new, but we will listen to you. Even our CEO is accessible! Also, most of our product community’s previous requests are now live. :)

📱 Sync With Unlimited Devices

Use Nimbus on UNLIMITED devices you use. Take notes on your phone, desktop, or tablet, whether at home, school, or work.

🗂️ Folder & Subfolder Hierarchies For Bigger Projects

Group similar workspaces (to-dos, tracking, notes, research, etc) by project, client, department, or campaign. Nest folders, checklists, and tasks as you need.

📚 Workspaces are structured in a much better way

Each workspace is entirely separate from other workspaces. Has its own users, folders, tags, content, and permissions.

🐘 Quick Importing

Easily import your Notion backup file (.enex) to Nimbus Note for hassle-free transfers.

📇 Not Just A Text Editor

Customize fonts, formatting, and colors. Easily add tables, spreadsheets, databases, images, voice memos, PDFs, videos, and other files.

🤑 Value For Money & Fair Pricing

Whatever Notion can do, Nimbus does it better, faster, and at 3x less cost.

😊 Modern, User-Friendly Interface

Notion is getting old. With a modern, faster, cleaner and more intuitive interface, Nimbus is the future.

🕐 Collaborate In Real Time

Edit anything together with your team, in real time!

💵 Fully Capable Free Account For Personal Use

For personal use, Notion can be costly. Choose Nimbus for a more capable free account.

👔 Better Pricing for Small Businesses & Startups

Notion can be too expensive for smaller operations. That’s why Nimbus has a better starter pricing with larger-capacity business plans! Suitable for SMBs and startups

🏎️ An App That Flows, Not Freezes

A smoother way to manage everything from small checklists to complex projects. With fewer bugs and lags, so nothing ever falls through the cracks.

📱 Integrate With More Apps That You Use

Notion integrations are expensive. Get more integrations for your buck with Nimbus.

🖥️ Server Backups & Restore

Getting backups is another expensive Notion feature. With Nimbus, you can make full snapshots of your workspaces and restore them when you need to.

🔎 Powerful But Simple Search

Search by date, location, tags, text, and more. Just type and press enter. No need to click a ton of clunky buttons with buggy UI

⌨️ Rich Formatting

Embed code inside your content and apply syntax highlighting for all major programming languages. Write and format your code faster using Markdown commands and hotkeys.

🎨 Color Coded Labeling

Color code your folders however you want!

🆙 Image to Text Recognition (or OCR)

Nimbus recognizes words in visual files, so you can search through PDFs, screenshots, and handwritten or photographed notes

✋ Drag And Drop Files

Drag-and-drop one or more files directly into a note, embed a PDF, and add captions.

⏳ Nimble note-taking for faster-paced times

A FASTER way to capture all your ideas, projects, tasks, to-do lists, notes, and memories—so you never miss anything.

📶 Get Offline Access Anytime

Save notes if you're OFFLINE. Once you're online, Nimbus automatically syncs EVERYTHING on ALL your devices.

💡🤯 It’s like getting an extra brain

Like your brain but portable. And with 100% accurate memory.
