Create personal or team documents crafted beautifully with cards, text styling and pages. Craft is used by millions to help organize their notes & documents.
What is Craft and who's it for?
Craft presents an interesting set-up. Is it a note-taking app like Evernote or an all-in-one workspace like Notion. No. It lives in-between. Very simply, Craft is a personal and team documents application that allows you to create "beautiful documents".
This basically means that you can create documents with smart cards to summarise other pages, better page styling to make the page look fantastic and even sharing abilities internally and externally to better share with clients and team members.
Daily notes also offers a layer of daily note-taking, or journal to your Craft use that many Craft users have embraced. Craft blends a personal documents experience with now a bigger and bolder team experience too for businesses and smaller teams.
What Makes Craft Special?
We've highlighted cards, page styling and daily notes as standout features of Craft.
We need to focus on the good elements of Craft like the native experience, easy-to-use layout for better managing your documents and the interweaving ways to create notes and pages within pages.
Page cards are one of the best and most customisable elements inside of Craft and mainly locked in the Pro experience but presents a better way to create a wiki like layout in your Craft workspace for teams and individual use.
Craft makes documents look great, you can share them externally easily using the new sharable experience. This offers a way to create a password for new link outs and even make it publishable as a website too.
Whilst we don't want to compare it to Notion, Craft offers a similar "block" like experience like Notion - but one of Craft's letdown experiences is the limit of 1,000 blocks in their free pricing plan.
Who is Craft Best Suited For?
This is something that can be used for meeting agendas all the way to your own personal daily notes. Craft is an open canvas, with more traditional structure that you would see inside tools like Google Docs, so a much more familiar feel than Notion and others.
We'd recommend Craft for those who create documents daily, but need to make those documents look and feel better both internally and externally.
Craft is very Apple-centric and presents a fast, reliable user experience - that whilst requires a small learning curve will play very well for daily document creation.
Make documents daily, Craft is one to consider.
