We had the opportunity to test out the latest version of Notebook for Mac OS (Version 3.0). It is essentially a note taking application but with more features than a Swiss Army Knife. How does it perform and is it worth it? Full review after the break!
Notebook 3.0 was developed by a company called Circus Ponies. A user can essentially open up a new notebook and start recording various entries whether it be agenda items, todo lists, or just your run of the mill notes.
You may ask however, how is it any different than Textedit? Well the big differences revolve around flexibility and organization. With Notebook you can drag and drop files and have them be located there and readily available. We loved being able to drag movie files into certain pages where we made references to them.
Another great aspect of Notebook 3.0 was the ability to keep everything organized. It was very easy to just name pages within a notebook file and have them automatically update via the table of contents. If we needed to create seperate dividers for certain sections, it was easy to do and our table of contents automatically reflected those.
One of the most unique features of Notebook 3.0 was the Multidex. Think of it as Spotlight but in overdrive! Not only are words indexed and made searchable but so areattachment types, and dates. Multidex ensures that even if you could not recall what you were writing about, there are a multitude of other methods to search by.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed using Notebook 3.0 and would highly recommend it for those wishing for a robust method for taking notes and getting organized. With its flexibility and vast feature set, a user will find themselves hard pressed to discover a richer note taking app for their Mac.
