Nuclino or Notion — which tool is right for you?

Notion is endlessly customizable — but the more options you have, the longer it takes to set everything up. Instead of focusing on meaningful work, you end up fiddling with settings.

We built Nuclino for those who don't want to overcomplicate their workflows.
A simple and fast solution that has everything you need and nothing you don't.

Needless complexity slows you down

Getting to know the intricacies of Notion is a full-time job. I wanted to share notes with my team, not pick header images, emojis, and layouts from seemingly infinite options!

— Capterra review

Impressed by the functionality and possibilities of Notion, overwhelmed by the steep learning curve. So. Very. Complex. I'm a developer and I constantly felt overwhelmed.

— Capterra review

At times, when more than one team member is on the same page in Notion, it tends to slow the performance of the browser quite a bit.
