Either that, or people are really forgetful and need something to write down whatever they thinking of at the moment. This is the story of yet another notes app, but one that syncs up with Dropbox, Evernote, and SimpleNote.
Another Way To Take Notes
Back in the day, toward the end of the previous century, when Macs and PCs were coming out of the swamp to walk on two legs, word processors were the all the rage.
Here in the 21st century, the latest craze seems to be notes apps, specifically the kind that sync up Mac to the cloud to iPhone or iPad (and even PCs).
Notesdeck is yet another notes app for the Mac that carries a few of those modern, 21st century necessities– synchronization with other apps.
This one costs a little more than most but does a little more than most.
For example, there’s a live Markdown preview so you can see how what you write will look when embedded into a web page.
The user interface is at once clean and simple, yet has basic file management, and even a fullscreen distraction free writing mode.
What’s missing is the typical word processor toolbar at the top.
You won’t miss it, though. Notesdeck is more for writing quickly than processing and formatting words for presentation.
What justifies the price tag? Notesdeck searches multiple linked services at the same time.
That includes Evernote, SimpleNote, or files in your Dropbox account. There’s also options to share your notes to Twitter, Email, Tumblr, but not WordPress.
Hotkeys can be configured to put notes in specific folders. Fonts can be customized, and notes can be organized in folders within folders. It even works with TextExpander for faster, more accurate writing.
There are a few gotchas, too. Notes from Evernote are read only. The iPhone version is substantially less expensive than the Mac version.
Sometimes all these Mac and iPhone notes apps really do is highlight what a great bargain Evernote really is.
