Future of Findings

I know that Findings is unfortunately no longer developed and maintained, but I just wanted to voice again how great it is (used to be) in comparison to other ELN: given the lack of maintenance and bugs I switched to Benchling, but the UX is so much better in Findings, it’s really remarkable for such a small company.
If the following could be implemented I’m sure there would be a lot of interest and I for one would be more than happy to pay for a subscription or Agenda-style model if the business model is otherwise not viable:

  • true collaboration; I know that this is likely very hard to implement well, but very important
  • markdown based: I feel changing all syntax over to markdown, ideally with automatic hiding of markup as implemented in the recent beta version of Bear would be awesome; this would also allowing for easy export to markdown/word etc.
  • as a lower priority, but some sort of inventory system would be very convenient

Would it ever be a consideration to open source Findings?
thank you!

I didn’t realize the app was discontinued. That’s a great shame. It is really nice.

It is a pity to see that. But we should be at least informed.

If there is no continual development and maintenance, I will not keep writing my notes in Findings anymore. It can be very risky that all the notes will get lost.
