No note-taking application ever stuck with me for extended period of time. Telegram’s Saved messages (just a chat with yourself, really) is the first one I actually use. For two reasons:

1. I really hate having multiple lists. How to organize them properly? How many do I need? Where to look for the information when I need it? I hate making those decisions.

2. You can’t edit the past. In normal notes you have to go over your records periodically and decide what to clean up. But you never know when it’s the right moment to delete a record: delete it too soon and you might need it later, leave it for late and you keep seeing it even though you might never need it.

In Telegram it’s fire-and-forget, you are never bothered with cleaning up. Perfect for stuff you want to look up eventually but not important too much.
