The latter is simple a digital Post-it Note, the to-do list and reminder app of the great unwashed Mac masses. Notes apps are a dime a dozen. Sometimes even less expensive than that. My latest fav is free and it’s notes done right– fast, easy, elegant, and free. And there’s just one flaw.
NotesTab is probably the wrong name. It’s a notes app, yes, but there’s nothing tab-like about it.
One click is all it takes to bring NotesTab up (or, down) and you’re ready to enter a note. You can set it to stay on top of all other apps, always handy. As you come across snippets of text, news, URLs, or whatever, NotesTab is right there, ready to take it, store it, remember it.
Every note gets a time stamp so you’ll know exactly when you created the note. Search is built-in, too, so finding a single note in a haystack of notes is rather simple.
There are all kinds of uses for a simple notes app. And NotesTab makes itself handy by residing in the Mac’s Menubar, always a click away.
Click the Share Note button and it becomes an email to send with the note inside.
What’s wrong with this beautiful, elegant, useful and totally free Mac app?
It’s in the Mac’s already overcrowded Menubar. The Mac App Store has become so popular for one-trick pony apps that every developer seems to demand a spot in the Menubar.
Here’s the problem. The Menubar is finite and limited in width. Even worse, Mac apps with long and wide menu selections may crowd out some Menubar apps, making them invisible (within that app).
Menubar apps can be handy, but until Apple figures out a way to drop in and retrieve an unlimited number of apps, all Menubar apps need a Dock option (which brings up the crowded Dock problem).
