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.

Still the best and fastest note taking app with floating capability. The only thing I would say is misisng is the ability to save the notes to a cloud service such as dropbox to check between machines. In addition, instead of having the notes date in the history section, it should also have the notes title or first words. It does have the ability to rename notes, but that takes away form the speed at which I would like to work.

Nonetheless, its great for fast notes, has swiping feature to move the notes fast. Good for floating over other screens(needed this for coding and copying and pasting)

In addition it has a great search feature to help find notes.

If you do get this app, be sure to setup the shortcuts as that also helps speed things up.

Great for someone needing fast notes that have to get jotted down and refrenced later.

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...
