Ever needed to quickly jot down a reminder, task, or idea? Noted is a simple, privacy-focused note-taking tool that lives in the macOS menu bar – just one click away.

-Absolutely no ads
-Minimalistic design developed specifically for macOS Big Sur
-Support for customizing the font and color of your note
-Doesn't take up a ton of valuable screen space
-Always open and ready for you to jot down whatever is on your mind
-Your note will save even if you close the app, close your Mac's lid, or restart your computer

No information leaves your Mac, meaning that neither Apple nor Noted's developers will be able to see what you've written. All of your notes are stored locally; we don't use servers or any back-end infrastructure. In short, Noted gives you complete privacy, no strings attached.

What’s New

Version 2.3

Added the ability to toggle the Noted window with a keyboard shortcut! Press Command + Backtick (`) to show or hide the pop-up. The Backtick key is located directly above the Tab key.

Very useful!

Very easy to use and does exactly what it claims. Very lightweight- I look forward to added features in the future.
One idea: can the icon for the app in the menu bar be the awesome quill that is the app icon instead of the word "noted?" I dont love the fact that there is a whole word in my menu bar and I would much prefer the quill to click on instead.

Thanks for the review. I've added your suggestion to the feature list.

clean and useful!

I feel like MacOS should have had something like this natively. This is better (for me) than leaving stickes open on my screen and it keeps me from creating unecessary entries in the Notes app that i only need for a short period of time.
