Notion is a service that I described in March as being part project management and part reference wiki. The service provides a place for teams to make task lists, set due dates, and share files. Notion also provides pages for writing and sharing documents. Today, Notion sent an email to users to announce the new Notion mobile apps to help users stay connected and share with team members.
Notion’s new mobile apps include all of the components of the desktop version. Those components include task lists, spreadsheets, calendars, and reference pages. The mobile apps let you add files to your Notion workspaces too.
Applications for Education
As I wrote back in March, Notion could be a good tool for high school or college students who are working together on long-term projects. Students could build reference pages together that they then consult in writing a paper or preparing a presentation. The task lists component of Notion could help divided and keep track of the responsibilities of each group member.
