9 Spokes

Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Notion

If you are looking for an alternative to Evernote or Google Docs, Notion would be the best choice for you. You can Keep records of everything and Capture your unique workflows easily. One of the highlights is that it supports both Kanban board, Calendar view and even list view. Note that free account is limited 5MB file in size.

Support

Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

Alternatives Considered

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

Simply notion is better than Evernote. It sure is the app of the year material. I think it can be used for many purposes. Even Journaling. Can Notion replace Todoist? Now that notion has reminders but it can't compete with Todoist now. You can also share your reading lists with your friends with the help of Notion.

Collaboration and Sharing

9 Spokes7.0
Based on 1 answer
Access control capabilities are OK. Ease of sharing is great because the app design is made special for that purpose. I haven't dove that far into the app enough to generate reports. Formatting is very flexible because 9 Spokes allows the user to customize how the info is displayed. Security or lack thereof is not a factor for me so I am unable to give feedback on security.

Recently, Notion 2.2 released with new inline comments, security toggles, captions for embed and image blocks, and a few other things. Yes, it now has the ability to easily share data across teams but you should opt for Notio Pro to get most of that.

Data Integration

9 Spokes5.0
Based on 1 answer
I gave 9 Spokes a five because the range of data sources is minimal. Ease of merging data from disparate sources is pretty good for the ones they do support. I just want to have more apps available for arranging on their nice looking interface. Perhaps next year my review for 9 Spokes will be better than 5

Some folks were interested in learning more about how Notion keeps eating up more and more of Evernote's job. Yes, it can be the perfect alternative to the Evernote but still a lot of rooms to improve. I can use Notion to take notes, create to-do lists, etc. A very nice app, but potentially very dangerous for those who want to spend their time doing work that matters.
