  • Needs Improvement

    By ALittleDizzy
    there is no text editing so what you get is what you are stuck with. CMD and plus or minus doesn't even work. Other than the text restrictions, I love the product and use it daily. Looking forward to improvements,
  • potential to better

    I love this app so far one thing I would love for them to add is to be able to chnage the colors of the words and highligt words with color other than black. That doesnt help me study.
  • Best Notebook app I found so far!!!

    By ROSEBUDZ121
    After looking for a notebook app for a long time and finding nothing but flops, I found this app. Best notebook app I have found yet. It doesn't require you to have to pay to have multiple notebooks and multiple notes in each notebook. It, also, can be synced through different devices. I have it on at least 4 devices and can access all of my information and writing on each one. GREAT APP!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
  • Notetaking 3.0 ;)

    By Gockley family
    9/23/19 Cannot download Safari clipper from App store...just get a spinning circle in App Store window. Great product, and I have looked at almost everything out there for over 30 years (Evernote, Simplenote, Palm Pilot notes ;). On the purely functional level, it allows for a wide variety of formatted notes to be grouped into noteboooks/folders/stacks, and a variety of media (images, checklists, etc) to be added. The ability to add pictures to the covers is lovely, and there is a good use of system services for saving/sharing material. There are some glitches with the font handling, which is very 1990's, and the Web clipper extensions, which rarely work. All in all, though, highly recommended.

  • Would be Perfect

    By Fytntbftbrg
    Its an almost perfect app, the only thing i wish is there were folders we could put the books into, so folder into books into notes , and maybe folders in folders.

  • The fastest note you can get from menu bar

    By Mm hein
    The first day of using notebook and it’s awesome. I can write my note from the menu bar at anytime anywhere. It’s really funny experience on Mac. Nobody can get such experience from Windows until now. So, Thumbs up for this application !!!
  • Simple and colorful with some negatives

    By GrandTerr
    Negatives: gray lines on the sides are terrible, and could be a bit improved with functionality.
  • Would be awesome if it wouldn't crash

    By VAStargazer
    This app is well thought out and I am very eager to use it to replace Evernote; however, it crashes immediately or goes into a "Not Responding" state. It did do an Evernote migration simply and beautifully. Get it stable and it would be a 4 star app. Hope the developers are checking here. Also shared the experience with their community support forum.
