Building products for our own personal use and the productivity of our team has been a practice since day one. In 2017, however, we decided to wrap one of our products (Night Eye) and launch it. Long story short, it turned out as a successful and profitable product.
When we built Night Eye, its sole purpose was to solve a major problem of ours - there was no good browser extension that enables consistent and smooth dark mode across the web. It turned out that there are a lot (currently more than 130 000) people around the globe have the exact same problem. So we dedicated a team to build, maintain and grow Night Eye.
The reason why we are now building Relanote is pretty much the same. We have a problem (organising our thoughts and ideas) that has been bothering us for the past year and a half. We literally tried every note-taking tool out there. We tested everything that is on the market, but none offered what we were looking for. So the idea of Relanote was born.
Below you will find the main reasons why we are building Relanote. If you think that those are fundamental for a good note-taking tool, join us!
The teamAt the moment, we are 2 members of Promotino fully devoted to the project. Since we are bootstrapping the project, we try to be as lean as possible. Soon we will share our approach to building businesses and why we have chosen the path we are on.
Stan (the person writing this, uhh it feels strange to address myself in third person) is responsible for everything but development. Research, marketing and business development is what he mainly doing these days. Stan has a MSc in Marketing Management and is the CEO of Promotino.

Why we are developing RelanoteThere are thousands of Note-taking apps being developed every day. All of them aim to help you build up your personal knowledge base, store your ideas and thoughts, and just jot down notes is huge. Although the number is quite staggering, the actual variety is quite poor. Nearly all apps are Evernote clones (as it was the first wide-adopted note-taking app). They offer pretty much the same design and the same notes organization method - hierarchical.
This said, one solution does not solve different people’s needs, especially in this day and age when the volume of information we are going through and processing is growing exponentially.
We started Relanote to solve 4 problems
- To offer people a different knowledge organization methodology, one that uses bi-directional links and graph for a visual overview
- To provide a truly user-friendly note-taking tool that will allow you to integrate it into your daily workflow
- To have a truly secure and private note-taking tool
- To be able to quickly share your ideas and research with the world
Join the communityWe are truly excited about the opportunity of creating a strong and tight community around the idea of personal knowledge base creation.
