Why we built Capacities

A studio for your mind

We live in a world of distractions. Spotify, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok.

Most of us spend a lot of time online. In front of a screen. We consume. We stream and scroll. By design the scrolling never ends. To keep our attention. All we are needed for is to press like. Press subscribe and share. We are animals in a lab. Not realizing we are trapped in a social media maze.

But this can be an age that expands our knowledge and fuels our creativity. We can be the ones creating not just consuming. We can post, blog, shoot videos, sing songs and write scripts, articles, papers. We can complete novels, courses and projects. We can build an app. We can become more capable and less distracted.

Capacity is the power to contain and absorb. The ability to understand or learn. The ability to perform or produce.

We all need a place to think, to dream. A quiet corner. A seat in the coffee shop. A desk in the library. Lying on our bed at night. Blocking out the crowded train to work. A place of quiet. A place to focus and reflect. A place we go to get things done.

We need a place to work. Design the next rocket engine. Brief our team on a new innovation. Explain your latest discovery. Make sense of numbers heading in the wrong direction. A place to be productive. To focus on your mission.

We built Capacities to hold your knowledge. Help you understand it. Use it to produce. Capacities is your personal workshop, your private studio. A place to fill with everything that matters to you. Content that inspires you. Makes you curious. Makes you laugh, cry or dream of change.

Capacities is where you become creator, author, director, founder, journalist, teacher, commentator, influencer, investigator or illuminator.

Capacities is a studio for your mind. A studio for your imagination. A studio for creating the best version of yourself.

What our users say

I must say, it is everything I've been looking for in a notes app
Today, I deleted all the other note-taking apps off my devices
Sure thing - you are building the notes app of my dreams ♥️
For almost 2 years I've been searching for a way to index my knowledge for work, from a bottom up approach. […]. Your app seems to solve it.
I'm using Obsidian, but I'm willing to switch to Capacities for so many reasons
I wanted to congratulate & thank you guys for creating such an intuitive and beautiful piece of software ❤️
I have tried a ton of Note apps over the past month. Wow, I am very impressed of what you have here. Keep up the great work.
I am extremely excited about capacities.io, and I know it will become an invaluable tool for many people. Already, it has become a daily tool for me.

Please do not stop and keep going.
Just signed up for capacities and I must say I am amazed. I have tried all PKM systems and this one ups notion big time. Very well done.
As a product person who used Workflowy, Roam and Obsidian, I am very impressed by your unique product insight (Types).
I am testing capacities since yesterday and I'm super excited. So far I've been using Obsidian.
User interface and usability is great in this app! Congrats!
I just wanted to touch base to say I am checking out your capacities app. I have only used it a couple of days, but am enjoying it very much. It is beautifully designed. Keep up the great work!!!
Hello, I just thought I would write to say that since I had the onboarding call with Steffen in mid-May, it's been really helpful for me to use capacities even more powerfully. Since the newest update, it has been AMAZING to use. You are going in all of the right directions. Thank you.
Thank you for creating this wonderful app.
To be honest, I’ve tried Notion, Roam, Reflect, Obsidian, etc. pretty much every PKM system out there and I really hope you guys succeed in building your vision as I really enjoy using it.
Just wanted to say, this app is fucking awesome! Exactly the kind of thing I've been looking for. Kinda what I thought Anytype.io was going to be able to do, but WAY better and more powerful.
I an absolutely in love with this app. I have tried every to-do, planner, note taking app under the sun and never found something that fit and had all the functionality I want. Capacities seems to check all of my boxes - I am extremely excited to continue to learn it and utilize in with my life and work.
Capacities has been an absolute joy to use, and is one of a few TfT apps that actually leaves a lasting impression.
I think Capacities is by far the most useful, well designed tool, I've ever used.
The ‘Capacities’ has got everything I imagined.
