    I feel that the use of absolute positioning was sort of the downfall to the mobile experience. I never liked using position: absolute for anything, as it ruins the layout as you decrease screen size. In addition, the use of the calc value is not exactly needed here, as there are better options,such as simply using percentage values. I would also suggest shifting from positions to some form of grid. This would make it easier to adjust the app for mobile. As an example, I did some really sloppy CSS work via a web inspector (no kidding), and came up with this just by editing the CSS.

    This was done in about 10 minutes, and the layout completely changed from using relative/absolute positioning to inline-block "grids" without many hitches (besides the side bar on the right, but that's just HTML stuff). There were some problems with scroll bars with this method, but it was mostly just me crudely editing the code and could be easily fixed. I would simply suggest changing how layout is done in the thought plans area to use grids, as it just seems right with how the thought plans are laid out and would make adapting it to mobile that much easier (ex. simply changingthe "inline-block" to "block" and applying a new width.

    You can modify some of Thought Plan's CSS and add your own JS yourself via Minimalist for Everything, an extension on the Chrome Web Store, so if you aren't comfortable with what Thought Plan looks like right now, you can already use that extension to fix whatever the problem is on your own, while everyone else has to wait for the fix.

    This would be nice to have. Maybe something like Ctrl+Alt+F makes everything go out of view with a smooth motion transition. The funny thing though, you can do this with Minimalist for Everything, a nice extension I found on the Chrome Web Store. It allows you to add CSS/JS to a website so you can get rid of the clutter. Until this idea is implemented, you can do the following:

    1. Install Minimalist for Everything (link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/minimalist-for-everything/bmihblnpomgpjkfddepdpdafhhepdbek)

    2. Go to app.thoughtplan.com

    3. Go to the little M square on your Chrome bar and click on it. Click Add Module on the little popup that appears.

    4. You are now in the dashboard. Go into your new Thought Plan module (if you haven't already), and change the @includes input with *app.thoughtplan*. This will make the applied CSS/JS modify everything within the Thought Plan website.

    5. Go into a option (One was probably made for you already with the structure "General - General - New Option), and the following code into your CSS:

    .navbar, .bottom-nav, .thought-plan-header { display: none !important }

    This will allow you to hide everything. To turn it off so you can see everything again, simply click the power button next to your module with the Minimalist for Everything extension and refresh the page.

    Still, a trash bin would still be useful as another safeguard against a happy delete finger. I would suggest creating a "tab" somewhere on the far right as the placement for the trash bin.

    I think what he is suggesting is an extension that allows you to edit your thought plans on the fly without entering the actual website. When you click on the button next to the Chrome search bar, the thought plan website will appear on the right similar to how it's shown on Sidenotes. To improve functionality (since its such a small area), I would suggest the interface would be stripped down to only include your thought plans and the create thought plan button. (if this is implemented on the Chrome Web Store).

    I would like to see offline access that let you work on your Thought Plans and then syncs to the web page when you have internet access, similar to what Evernote does. Also, having it in a native style window can make it look like an actual app.

    In addition, a Thought Plan Clipper extension that makes a new Thought Plan called "Clips" when you "clip" a website with the title of the website as the thought and a simple link as the content would be nice to have as well.

    Note: Most apps on the Chrome Web Store are essentially glorified bookmarks, so putting Thought Plan as it is wouldn't be bad either, to be honest.

    This is actually relatively standard to what Google Drive and other applications / stuff do. Whenever you make an office document, the name is always New Document, New PowerPoint, etc., so this is not exactly bad.

    To improve on the original request, I would suggest having a modal box open upon clicking New Thought Plan with an input that allows you to enter the name of the Thought Plan before you enter it. For the people that can't decide on a name, you can put a "I'll name it later" option that simply sends you to the Thought Plan with the name blank (with the placeholder "My New Thought Plan").
