It's the Stickies-like app you have been waiting for all this time…

Place notes in notebooks and further organize them with categories. Resize, dock, and collapse notes to keep them out of your way but still in plain sight. Even use your favorite color to add some style to your notes. Why write down notes when you can have JotNow store, search, and organize them?

Organize your thoughts and find them just as fast. Move between notes just as easy as you create them. Find and display notes with a click of a mouse or the press of a key. So much effort has been put on functionality and simplicity you will wonder how you ever used your computer without JotNow installed.

One of the best

I'm a 'been there done that' when it comes to note-taking apps, ranging from Evernote to Notes to 'you name it' - the difference in JotNow (for me), is that I don't have to switch into 'think / structure' mode while using it. JotNow is also of few note-taking apps that can 'stay out of the way' while using it. I'd love to see the next update and would gladly pay/contribute to its development.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. We will be adding more improvements in the coming months.

Good app, but 2 suggestions on first use

This is a very good, and useful application. Two suggestions, though:
1. Two transparency settings, one for the active note (the one in focus, I don't know what JotNow calls "active notes" means), the other (more transparent) for inactive notes, so that one can see through the notes that are not in focus.
2. Using the first line as the tittle. Currently, it uses creation date/time as the tittle, and wastes the precious tittle space. In most cases, the first line (more than likely, a note contains only one line) contains most important infomation the note is to carry.

Not easy to use

This app would be useful to me if they fixed a few issues and was more intuative. This app is very hard to navigate and I wish they made it easier to figure out how to customize the notes. Not very straight forward...
