Let Your Writing Flow

When overwhelmed with a major writing project,
or trying to fit all the pieces of your life together,
how do you get organized?

Do you:

  • Start writing lists?
  • Start with an outline?
  • Reach for a stack of index cards?

Why not all of the above?

Gingko is a new kind of tool, that lets you shape your ideas
with lists, outlines and cards, all in the same clean interface.

Let your ideas flow freely into place.

“My default place to write: dump ideas, move to structure, flesh em out, rearrange, edit, export.”

“It took away so much of my writing anxiety that it got me through from undergrad to a Ph.D. now.”

For writing:

I am a new and devout user. It took all of, I don't know, 30 seconds? to convert me to Gingko. From what? Nothing.

Because's there's nothing like it. Seriously awesome job.

— Anna Hiatt

I am absolutely in love. I’ll admit, when I first took a look I thought that it seemed strange and counter intuitive, but when I actually began writing I couldn’t imagine doing it any other way.

You really nailed the keyboard shortcuts, the way cards are navigated, linked, and displayed, is awesome.

This is the only way to write that I have ever come across that allows me to get everything out of my head at once and stay organized at the same time.

Gingkoapp, is my standout favourite. I’ve been using it for a little over two months now and it’s nothing short of brilliant.

You can think of it as the online version of pen & paper

I'm a PhD student in computational biology. I've always struggled with writing projects and getting my thoughts together. I've been using this tool for a couple of days and have done more writing this week than the last 6 months put together.

This book has been sitting in my head, on scraps of paper, and in jumbled Word documents, for weeks. With Gingko, I was able to create an outline of my main ideas that quickly grew into the structure and skeleton of my book!

Jessica Lafleur, Creator of Stark Skincare

LOVE the app.
Really fabulous way of co-editing a book.

Mo Fox, Consultant and Creative strategist

This App is exactly the tool I’ve needed to give me confidence that I could keep it all organized AND get the story told RIGHT...

Already I can see that this will allow me to proceed with confidence. I already feel far more organized. With that pressure off, now I can get the chapters written and the story told in a lucid way.

I have pretty severe ADHD. In a way using this app, it's a bit life changing.... The only way not to get overwhelmed is to tightly structure information so that parsing complicated things can be done in small increments...

Thank you again, I don't really pay for things..., but congratulations on the huge feat of getting me to pay for something ;).

I use Gingko for writing research papers, it helps to focus on the elaboration of the concept and to work with large volumes of data.
If Gingko existed earlier, it would have saved me 2 years off my PhD.
