David Sparks is leaning toward Obsidian for note-taking

I’ve been happily using Craft for weeks now–but lock-in and lack of compatibility with DevonThink worries me.

On the other hand, Obsidian’s missing mobile application seems like a big obstacle. My insomnia makes working on the iPad important to me.

(Yes, insomnia. Maybe I’ll explain another time.)

I should check the Obsidian forums for updates on this.

David says the Obsidian mobile apps are coming very soon now. That would be lovely, but today is not that day, and I have learned never to make software decisions based on capabilities that are “coming soon.”

Craft has a data ownership manifesto that’s very encouraging. They’re working on moving to Markdown files, and open source format converters.

UPDATE: Ryan Murphy says Obsidian mobile apps are already in testing.
