There was once a time, way back in the day, when I was on a quest to find the perfect Mac note-taking, snippet-gathering app.
I wanted an app that would store anything and everything and could be organized according to my tastes, experience, and whims. It had to be fast, elegant, easy to use, yet highly flexible. Is such a note-taking app available?
An Old Flame Returns
Mori was nearly perfect. It worked according to my organizational habits. It held nearly anything I needed it to hold.
It was flexible, easy, fast, and quickly understood.
Mori was as close to the perfect notes and snippets app I’d ever used.
I could use Mori to take notes, to write articles, to save images or photos, and to organize all those little pieces of data that flowed across my Mac’s screen. Mori was easy to love.
It was part word processor, part hierarchical folder, part task and project manager, and a great repository for ideas, projects, tasks, research notes, clippings, and everything else.
The left column displayed Mori’s folder structure. Nest folders into folders and notes into folders and everything else exactly the way you want.
Mori’s search is fast and indexed. It comes with a date column, color coded tags for priority items, and complete categorization of anything and everything.
Mori expands to fit the way you work, or to change when you change. The hierarchical folders are brilliant and work like an outline.
The built-in word processor is instantly usable.
There’s not much to learn, yet Mori is so flexible with organizing your notes and snippets and images that you feel as if it was made for you, but you’re in control.
Mori is one of the better note-taking apps you’ll ever use on a Mac.
The flaw? Mori hasn’t changed much through the years. I stopped using Mori when Hog Bay Software let it go to Apokalypse Software. My needs changed. I need synchronization between Macs and iPhone and iPad, and backup to the cloud.
Mori is a very good app to use, but hasn’t kept up with the times, yet is priced as if it is. Even Evernote matches some functionality, and it’s free and runs on nearly everything.
