For example, how many notes taking apps are there for the Mac? The number is growing, of course, and they range in price from free to expensive, and usually have feature sets to match the price tag. Here’s one that’s free, convenient, easy to use, and, well, that’s it.
No Scribbling Allowed
Some Mac notes apps are appropriately named, including the much admired Notebook app, which I know and use and recommend for Mac users who need plenty of notes taking power.
Nope. Scribblet is a Menubar app which lets you type notes, not scribble notes.
The claim to fame with Scribblet is a memorable, though not quite accurate, name– and ease of use. Because it lives in the Menubar it’s available in any app with nothing more than a click.
Scribblet lets you use a keyboard shortcut, too, so it’s useful for Mac power users who disdain point and click. Notes can be organized within Scribblet’s drop down menu, too.
Nearly every useful function has a keyboard shortcut, yet Scribblet takes care to remain minimalist (a common euphemism which means ‘a limited number of features’). The built-in search field lets you search for notes as your collection increases in number, though it’s also easy to organize notes into categories.
Scribblet is more convenient to use than OS X’s TextEdit and the notes organizing system makes it useful to collect thoughts, snippets of text, code, or anything else you gather regularly and need to save and organize.
It’s simple and elegant, convenient for power users, works well, and it’s free.
