We’re blissful to announce a brand new model of Tot with some options ceaselessly requested by the app’s legion of followers.

The principle focus of at the moment’s launch are system extensions that enable Tot to co-exist with different apps. To this finish, we’ve added a Sharing extension for each iOS and macOS. Moreover, there’s additionally a widget for iOS that permits you to rapidly entry any of Tot’s dots. Like the whole lot else in Tot, consideration was paid to minimizing friction, permitting data to be collected as rapidly as doable.

Tot’s new share extension is, fairly probably, the perfect one I’ve ever tried for a plain textual content note-taking app. In an intuitive, compact UI, the extension provides the whole lot I want: I can decide considered one of Tot’s seven dots; I can select to append or prepend textual content to a dot; the extension even lets me decide the variety of line breaks I need to put between a dot’s current content material and the brand new textual content I’m inserting right into a notice. And right here’s the perfect half: the higher part of the share extension’s popup has a full, scrollable preview of the chosen dot, so I can see what all the notice will appear like earlier than appending or prepending textual content. Tot is the primary note-taking app I’ve used that will get this side of sharing textual content/hyperlinks to an extension proper.

It might be thought-about a small enhancement to the app, however Tot’s new extension exhibits how a lot consideration went into designing an expertise that’s each highly effective and keen to get out of the way in which as rapidly as doable. I want extra note-taking apps provided a share extension much like The Iconfactory’s app, which, months after its authentic launch, I nonetheless use as my go-to scratchpad each day.
