New import options, Whisper desktop integration and enhanced search

In the spirit of data-portability (one of our values at Reflect), we're incredibly excited to announce a host of new import and export options.

New imports

Reflect users can now import their existing notes from Evernote, Roam, Obsidian, Workflowy and Apple Notes.
To import your notes, head to the preferences page (keyboard shortcut: cmd + ,) and select the graph you want to import to. You can then choose the proper format depending on the file type you are importing.

If you want to migrate your notes from Apple Notes, we have a script that converts them into HTML files, which you can then upload. See how on our video walkthrough for Apple Notes. We also have a demo video on how to migrate your notes from Evernote.
You can learn more about importing and exporting notes on Reflect Academy.

Export options

Reflect users can also export their notes in both HTML and Markdown.

Whisper integration for desktop

We have released the desktop integration of OpenAI's Whisper. This provides near human-level transcriptions of voice notes.
Simply tap the microphone icon, and record a message. Your audio will be transcribed and appended to the day's daily note.

Next month we will be adding the technology to our mobile app.
A note regarding security: we delete the audio recordings and plain text transcriptions as soon as they're processed.
We are also releasing an improved search engine. Not only did we speed things up, but we added both prefix and fuzzy matching.

Give it a whirl with (cmd + k)

  • Improve formatting of incoming backlinks
  • Improved speed of app startup
  • Improved the formatting of lists copied to the clipboard
