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!!!
Sarah
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.
Nathan
Thank you for creating this wonderful app.
Arthur
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.
George
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.
