> — Patrick M. > Software Engineer > Gingkoapp, is my standout favourite. I’ve been using it for a little over two months now and it’s nothing short of brilliant. > You can think of it as the **online version of pen & paper** > — Matthew Setter > Coder & Tech writer * * * > I'm a **PhD student in computational biology**. I've always struggled with writing projects and getting my thoughts together. I've been using this tool for a couple of days and have done **more writing this week than the last 6 months put together.** > Nyasha, Cornell University > This book has been sitting in my head, on scraps of paper, and in jumbled Word documents, for weeks. With Gingko, I was able to create an **outline of my main ideas that quickly grew** into the structure and skeleton of my book! >
