Do you need big, feature-packed, and sometimes complex tool for your work, to stay organized, or keep track of your tasks?

Maybe not.

Maybe all you need is plain text. Yes, simple, old fashioned, unadorned, boring text. It sounds scary or alien, but it’s not.

Plain text isn’t just for the geek or the techie. Plain text isn’t just for the academic or hardcore productivity hacker. Plain text can be for anyone.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a student, a stay-at-home parent, a writer or blogger or journalist, or someone’s grandparent. Using plain text can make your life easier and more efficient.
