The offline desktop requires installing Google Chrome first before the WorkFlowy app can be installed. This is not good news for non-Chrome users especially users who frequently uses Firefox or Safari as their default browsers, in which Chrome app also suffers memory leak and battery issues. See More
Any sublist can be viewed as a top-level list. This sounds simple but makes WorkFlowy extremely powerful. For example, the same line item, "write my book," can simultaneously be a to-do in my task list and the container for my entire working document. See More
When you have to link to, for example, a website, you can't attach the URL of the site to a word. You have to post the full URL instead. You can't have, for example, Slant, you instead have to post http://slant.co. It's especially annoying if you have a long URL that takes up a lot of space in the document. See More
All notes are part of a list, which makes it easy to organize everything. Nested lists allow for organizing notes into hierarchical categories of infinite depth. All lists can be folded. WorkFlowy also has tags and instant full-text search. See More
You have three options (classic, outliner, and dark) for themes. The differences are specific to how your content is formatted (for example: how bullets are displayed, if at all). You can also toggle the "grayscale" option if you don't want your tags to be in color. See More
Some conventions used to interact with the software are either questionable or simply going against what's commonly accepted. For example, right-click + drag will move around, holding down the right-click will open up the context-menu and left-click in an open space will start a new unconnected node. What this results in is constant accidental opening of context-menu then accidental creation of a new node trying to get out of the context-menu. See More
You can't create sub-folders (also known as nesting folders). This means that you can't have folder within folders, making organization a bit tougher. Instead of a top folder called "school" and a nested "semester 1" folder, you will need to have a separate folder for each semester on the highest level. See More
