This is a regularly updated list of applications, tools, and services in the Personal Knowledge Management and Productivity space. It is intended to be comprehensive if not exhaustive. Note that our focus here is primarily on tools for personal or small team use, we are not intending to list a majority of enterprise-level options.
Tools are organized by type, with brief descriptions and links to more information (generally the official website). Applications are listed in no particular order (for now) and formatting is a work-in-progress. Reviews or other 3rd party resources are provided where possible. When an app fits into multiple categories it will be listed in all, with reference back to a primary one for the bulk of the information.
This post is open for editing once you reach a certain level in the forums here, which you can attain simply by interacting - posting topics and replies, etc. Feel free to suggest new apps or other edits in the replies below until you’re able to edit directly!

Airtable Database for a Master Task List :
- We really appreciate the efforts of @lordrudraksh, for sharing with us his airtable database, that already contains a pre-seeded list of apps that we are trying to cover here.
- This might be a better way to keep track, due to it’s filter and tagging features. I hope everyone find’s it useful
- Kindly contribute to the list by posting about any app that you think should make it into the list.
