Great App only missing 2 things for me to make it Awesome

This app is great, it really is. It will replace your OneNote app and give you back the power to save your notes where ever you want, webdav, icloud, dropbox, etc. Really great to have this instead of syncing everything to the cloud I can save the notes locally if I wish or to the network server at the office. The only two things I have an issue with is that you cannot set a custom font and size when you start a note, i have to manually change the font size, bold everytime, you also cant pick the type of font you want to use. Come on that should have been an option from the begining. The other one is that I cannot mark a note as a favorite so it shows up like in most used section or favorites section.

Other than the things I mentioned this app is really good and if you dont want to use the cloud and want more control of your data but like OneNote this is the app for you. Check it out, on their website they give you a free 14 day trial at least you can try it and decide if you want it. I tried for a few days and bought it.

Nice Features - Kind of Quirky

Within the app, you can’t move a section group to a different notebook. However, going into the folder system and dragging the specific “section group” - folder group into a new notebook works. Kind of odd. If you want to close a notebook that is stored in iCloud, you have to basically “Move to Trash” for the notebook. That is a scary warning, because all you want to do is close it. Reading the fine print however, states that "deleted cloud notebooks can no longer be accessed in t he app but remain in the cloud”. Isn’t that the same as “CLOSING” a notebook. It’s just the way it is stated that creates a little anxiety.
A few quirky things, but essentially the best alternative to using OneNote (Office365) for Macs, which will only store URLs on your OneDrive, so the notebooks can’t be backed up. Overall a nice basic OneNote without all the bells and whistles that OneNote has and that I don’t use anyway.

Thanks for the feedback!

Beware: App will make your Mac laptop overheat

I have never written a negative review before, but this app has pushed me to do so. Initially, I absolutely loved this app; however, after using it for a graduate course its limitations are readily apparent. One day I suddenly began recieving messages stating that I needed to quit programs because I exceeded my application memory, which shocked me since I have a 2017 MacBook Pro with 8GB of RAM. After researching the problem, I figured out that not only was this program hogging more than 5GB of RAM by itself, but it was so taxing on the computer that it was causing my computer to overheat (i.e. the fan kicks into overdrive after this program is open for a matter of minutes). The company’s response was that I have a broken link and it can be fixed through the context menu (which isn’t the case). Future efforts to contact them have yielded no results. Any company that charges a $40 premium for their software better make sure that they are deliveringa quality product that doesn’t make a brand new computer using the latest microchips, RAM, and SSD’s overheat. Unfortunately, that’s not the case with this program.
