The Best App For Taking Notes On Your Mac
NoteBook—The App For Power-Outliners and Freeform Note Takers
NoteBook supports whatever note-taking style works best for you. Use NoteBook’s full-featured outliner to take structured notes, or just free-form as you would in a word processor. NoteBook even supports Cornell Notes, the most-popular note taking system in North American higher ed.
Place attachments together with your notes, so your important documents are right alongside your notes. Even attach sticky notes as you would in a real paper notebook.
Never Miss Another Detail, With Voice-Annotated Notes
If you’re in a meeting or lecture, NoteBook’s voice annotation feature guarantees you won’t miss a thing. Click the speaker icon next to any note to start playback from the point in the recording you began taking that note. Or send your voice annotations to your iTunes music library and from there to your iPod or iPhone, and review the recording at your desk or on the go.
Diagram or Sketch When Words Aren’t Enough
You can even take notes right on top of your PDF class notes or lecture slides. When you drop the PDF on your Notebook and choose the annotate option, NoteBook adds each PDF page as a separate page in the Notebook. From there you can add text notes, create diagrams, circle important points, and generate a new PDF that includes all of your mark-up. Your PDF and mark-up stay organized within your school notebook.
Mark Up PDFs With Notes or Comments
Take notes right on top of your PDF class notes or lecture slides. When you drop the PDF on your Notebook and choose the annotate option, NoteBook adds each PDF page as a separate page in the Notebook. From there you can add text notes, create diagrams, circle important points, and generate a new PDF that includes all of your mark-up. Your PDF and mark-up stay organized within your school Notebook.
Clip Web Pages, E-mails, and More for Later Reference
NoteBook makes it easy to“clip” selections from web pages and other apps straight into your Notebooks, without leaving the app you’re working in. Just set up one or more pages for clipping, and then start researching, reading your mail, or whatever. When you see something related to your research, select it and use the commands in the Services menu to clip it to a Notebook page. Web clippings include the URL, so that you can return to the source at any time. Then review, edit and annotate your clippings when you’re ready to work with your research.
Manage Data With Tables That Perform Computations
Collect and manage data in your Notebooks with NoteBook’s tables. Perform basic computations within and across tables by assigning formulas to table cells. The basic power of a spreadsheet, right within your Notebook pages!
Stay Super-Organized, Without Much Effort
NoteBook’s documents look like paper notebooks — with pages, tabs and sections — just like the notebooks you’ve used all your life, so they are instantly familiar. And Notebooks are very flexible. Want a Notebook with a single long page of notes? No problem. Need a Notebook with multiple sections and subsections to organize your clients? That’s easy. Unlike other note-taking software, NoteBook works the way you do.
Find Anything Instantly, Every Time
NoteBook’s Multidex™ which helps you find notes in all the different ways you might remember them. Each time you add or change a note, NoteBook indexes not only the note’s text, but also all of its “attributes,” things like when the note was changed, what Keywords you assigned to it, which attachments it contains, and more. This information forms the basis of the Multidex, a set of pages at the back of every Notebook that helps you locate anything with just a few clicks.
