About the app and our pricing model

Thought Train was built off the back of a simple problem faced by its creator; where do you keep your quick notes while you’re busy between your multiple apps every day?

We needed a tool that was quick to access and always on display, to keep us accountable for what we were busy with throughout the day.

Thought Train is the answer to that question. With its unique optional carousel, constantly reminding you what should be on your agenda, the app has proven invaluable for over 11,000 users so far.


The app has a simple monthly or yearly pricing model at $4.99/month or $45 annually.

Pay per user and use across as many devices as you like.

We have some exciting integrations planned for the product, and will add only the most useful productivity-focussed features requested by our users.

We encrypt your notes, making sure that what you write is 100% private, before syncing them to the cloud so that you can access them across all your devices.

This is a product we’re proud of and can’t wait for you to experience what we do when we use the app every day. or
