Released in 2016, the Notion App was created to be the ultimate productivity tool, bringing notes, databases, kanban boards, calendars and reminders all under one roof — putting an end to using different tools for different things, like Evernote for note-taking and Trello for project management. It can all be done within Notion.
So … What is the Notion App?
In a nutshell, the Notion App is your portal to your Notion Workspace. There’s no other way to access it — whether you’re trying to tap in through a browser like Google Chrome, or on a tablet like the Apple iPad, or even using Notion for Mac, they all load a version of the Notion website, creating a very consistent user experience.

There are five versions of the Notion App: Notion for Android, Notion for iOS, Notion for Mac, Notion for Windows, and Notion for Web. They all offer a near-identical experience, with the main difference being the first four have a simple offline editing feature, while the latter can only be accessed with an active internet connection.
Notion for Android and Notion for iOS also come with the Notion Web Clipper baked in, eliminating the need to download the Notion Chrome Extension or an add-on for another browser like desktop users need to. The rest is very much the same. You can create, view and edit pages and upload files from any of the clients.
It couldn’t be easier to download Notion. The Notion App for Windows and Mac are available right here through Notion Wizard, while Notion for Android can be downloaded through the Google Play Store and Notion for iOS through the Apple App Store. Seeing as all files are stored in the cloud, they hardly take up any room either.
Is the Notion Software Free?
Notion is free, though there are a couple of restrictions: Uploads are capped at 5MB and Notion doesn’t keep a record of the changes you make, so you can’t revert to an old version of a file should you delete something you later need. There is a paid subscription, for $4 per month, that does away with both of these limitations.
