Never lose a file, never lose data
Attachments. With Findings, you will always know where to find your research files and data. It is right where they belong, in the corresponding experiment or note. The files are copied in your Findings library, which means no more accidental deletion, no more editing of the wrong file, no more cloud incantation.
Preview and edit. Any file can be an attachment: image, spreadsheet, ruby script, molecule structure, etc. It is easy to preview with QuickLook, show in the Finder or edit in your favorite application.
Tables & Spreadsheets. Findings has built-in tables for quick data entry. Or you can create template files compatible with Excel or Pages.

Make an impression
A journal for you. Based on all your entries, Findings generates a lab notebook automatically, in PDF format, that you can directly access from the app or on your disk. Your research journal literally prints itself out! And if you need more control, you can just as easily print the entries of your choice, for the dates of your choice.
Easy to share. Your research should not be in a silo. Findings can easily export any subset or all of your experiments and protocols to PDF, with all the attachments neatly arranged in folders. You can also export documents as archives, that anybody can read back in Findings. Sharing your results and impressing your colleagues has never been easier!

Follow the recipe
Protocols, procedures, processes, recipes, guides... They have a special place in Findings, to make them easy to browse, edit, and share with others in the lab, or with the rest of the world.
Templates for experiments. Protocols are building blocks for experiments. Once inserted, a copy is made, so you can still tweak it for that one time, and leave the original untouched.
