  • Piece

    📜 Floating note-taking app for your fleeting thoughts.

    Project mention: Show HN: Piece – Floating note-taking app for your temporary thoughts | | 2021-11-22

    Some backstory of Piece in case you are interested:

    This was initially a rewrite of one of my side projects during college years ago. It was originally implemented with Electron (, resulting a more than 100M size for such a tiny app. At that time, Electron just came out, and I thought the best way to get to learn something is by making something with it, which I still find legit. Anyway, the code haven't been touched for a long time, even though I used the app personally every day.

    Months ago, I finally got some free time and decided to review the app, and concluded easily to rewrite it with Swift. There were some obstacles during the rewrite (, but eventually I made it. I tweeted about some comparison in terms of UI/UX, app size, memory usage (

    But I wanna make it more than just a rewrite, so I added some features that I personally needed, and just posted it on Mac App Store as a freemium app.

    You might notice I mentioned "personally" several times. It's true. I'm not quite confident whether others would have the same need. Personally (again), I found Piece really useful in my daily life/work, as I can quickly bring it up with a global shortcut and write down anything in my mind, ideas, to-dos, random thoughts, etc; or use it as a outline prompter when I write, present or talk, since it's always floating-on-top, and I can quickly press the same shortcut to hide it when I don't need it anymore. It's a note-taking app, but don't get me wrong, it's not to compete with those branding note-taking apps like Notion. It's just a tiny app. I think what Piece to other formal note-taking apps is more like what working memory to long-term memory.

    There are some other features like paste-to-app, copy-to-piece, clean reminder, additional themes and highlight syntax. But I would leave for those who are interested to experience them with the app.

    I have a lot of ideas for future development. I even think about making an iOS version. But for now, I think I just wanna verify it and see if there are users like me. Thanks for reading the story and using the app :-D
