What’s New

Version 3.9.1

The latest NotePlan release introduces a multi-day view to let you plan your time blocks across up to 7 days. NotePlan 3.9.1 also allows you to complete tasks right from your timeline on macOS!

What’s more, you can now easily switch between a list view and a timeline view to get a better overview of your day and your workload. Plus, on iOS, you can view and add meeting notes right from the timeline view.

MULTI-DAY VIEW: INTRODUCING WEEKLY TIME BLOCKING — Plan time blocks across up to 7 days

Planning time blocks on macOS just got an upgrade! You can now see up to 7 days on your timeline with all events, reminders, and tasks. The new multi-day view lets you look ahead and plan better. Don’t want to do a task today? Time-block it for the day after tomorrow at 2 pm, just by dragging and dropping it from your daily note to a slot on the timeline on the right.

NotePlan 3.9.1 also comes with an option to switch between list and timeline view (in the sidebar). Use the settings icon top right of the calendar to change what should be displayed in the sidebar. This lets you open for example a weekly note, switch to timeline (instead of list) and plan your complete week by dragging tasks into the timeline.

Finally, a new context menu on macOS lets you view and delete events, reminders, and time blocks on your timeline. You can even mark time blocks as completed!

MEETING NOTES ARRIVE ON iOS — A better way to keep track of meeting notes on the go

Meeting notes let you connect an event to a note to ensure you never lose track of information or actions related to your meeting. On iOS you can now easily add or view the meeting notes from the timeline with a couple of taps.


- Even faster performance for users with a lot of notes
- Added x-callback-url to hide the NotePlan badge (noteplan://x-callback-url/iconBadge/?enable=no)
- Added a context menu option "Show events" on iPadOS to show only the timeline of a calendar day (long-press a day in the calendar top right). So you can
switch the timeline inside a project note.
- Fixed an issue with renaming files and folders
- Fixed duplicate references when periodic notes are turned off
- Fixed an issue where images (attachments) were sometimes deleted when a new note was immediately moved
- Fixed an issue with dragging tasks into the timeline from a Split View on iPadOS
- Fixed an issue with date detection in the title of an event
- Fixed an issue with changing recurring events and reminders
- Updated the German translation
- Fixed a couple of rare crashes related to Regular Expressions

Noteplan 3 is unstoppable!

Hi there,

I recently downloaded this app and fell in love with it at first sight(or use). I have used all other productivity apps out there across both iOS and Mac, but nothing comes close to the features Noteplan provides. The ability to access and modify my notes, tasks and calendar, all in one place, cross-platform is beyond amazing! That is the foremost thing that sets Noteplan apart, in fact, a class apart from all other apps out there. They all seem to be missing one or the other feature and the closest anything has come to meeting that benchmark, is this app. I saw that people were raving about it on Twitter as well and I couldn't help but get this. I am on a free trial right now and I am set to get the paid version of the app in Sep -The fact that I am leaving a review at this stage is only indicative of the HUGE potential and brilliance of this app. I observed also, like one of the other reviewers here, that the development team is quite responsive and I really appreciate the fact. As a fan of this app, you can expect your team hearing from me with inputs and feedback along the way - I want to see this app get better and the best! There is so much potential here and I am in love with this! Thank you for your and the work of your team to make this possible! 🙏🏻😀

Perfect app for busy people!

I tested out tons of different task and note-taking apps before finding this one--what I was specifically looking for was a digital version of a bullet journal. On top of all the bullet journal functionality I was looking for, I'm discovering many other ways of staying organized. It's taking mental bandwidth I used to devote to keeping track of things and instead letting me feel like I'm on top of my work.

I'm a professor, so I juggle many hats throughout the day, as well as manage and push forward my own research projects. Anyone who has to do any kind of project management, either at home or at work, will make their life easier with this software. I used to look sideways at "productivity" apps... who has time for them? But this is absolutely making my life easier and me more productive! It somehow reaches the right balance between being simple and intuitive to use, but with lots of deep functionality if you're looking for it.

Plus, the developers are coming up with new updates all the time, and they are so kind and helpful when you reach out to them with questions.

Really great — the big picture

There are lots of great things to say about this app, but I think the top-line item is this: It has SUCH a good vibe — a balanced mix of features, a really thoughtful and interesting design, and (as you can see from the reviews) a *very* responsive developer. Some people won't like it because it isn't exactly like some other app, straddles a few categories, or doesn't adhere strictly to some 'method,' but for me that's a big part of what makes it so excellent.

I genuinely appreciate and respect the fanaticism of those developers who've ruthlessly focused on UI simplicity or a methodology, and their influence is everywhere; but I also want apps that are more flexible, even gentle, and for me Noteplan hits that spot. It has a rich feature set that mostly allows you follow your favorite approach, but it doesn't require you to do that — it lets you adapt and mix them. It is and *feels* rock-solid. And it's also young and small enough to have an active, constructive community of users — and a developer who listens to them on an individual basis.
