Obsidian Review | TechRadar

Written by admin

One of the remarkable things about obsidian (opens in new tab) is that it is the work of only two developers; Shida Li and Erica Xu. Before founding Obsidian, they worked on Dynalist, a popular online outliner. They met as students at the University of Waterloo in Canada and have collaborated on many side projects.

As the story goes, both developers were looking for a suitable note-taking app (opens in new tab) but were dissatisfied with existing solutions. So they tried to build theirs, with three primary considerations; local-first and plain text; links as a first-class citizen; and make it highly customizable.

Although Obsidian has only been around for a few years, it has amassed a large number of users, a significant percentage of whom praise it as an effective note-taking tool. We decided to see for ourselves whether the app deserved its praise.
