Thank you for using Hook and spreading the word about this CogSci Apps® invention. Your purchases enable support ongoing development and customer support.

Speaking of which, please stay tuned for Hook 2.0 :blush:.

Would you be willing to publish a roadmap for 2.0? Very exciting to see the active development given the renewed interest in note taking apps with bidirectional linking. It seems to me that Hook goes beyond many of these apps!

Thank you, @haberjr! Timelines and details are hard to predict. So we kept the ETA vague to “this summer”. Some specific features in the past we had to pull at the last minute, adjusting our course a bit. Still, we’ve mentioned several things on the forum, including that the ability to search Hook’s bookmarks is planned for 2.0. We also will introduce “Recent” and “Pinned” sections (currently undergoing QA, along with general beautification) in Hook’s contextual window. There’ll be more than that.
