Hypernotes as a Roam Research Alternative

Roam Research is a paid note-taking tool which helps you to reduce clutter and organize thoughts easily.

It allows you to visualize connected notes and information just like how your brain works. It’s a powerful tool, but what if you prefer an easy-to-use tool without having to commit to a considerable learning curve? What if you could not only create a semantic network of your knowledge and build upon your existing knowledge, but also organize your ideas on the go?

This is why we’ve created Hypernotes, a knowledge management system to help you create, share, and understand knowledge in a new way. As part of our Zenkit Suite, Hypernotes is deeply integrated with other products in the Zenkit Suite, including Zenkit To Do (task management tool), the original Zenkit Base (project management tool), and many more to come. Hypernotes aims to ease knowledge creation and management. With powerful task management features in place, Hypernotes improves collaboration and communication over writing-related tasks with others.

With Zenkit, we’ve developed an easy to use, yet powerful Suite that evolves and adapts to your needs. If you are looking for a full-featured alternative to Roam Research, give Hypernotes a try!
