With all the online hacking going on– banks, Target, Adobe, government web sites– I thought it would be prudent to look for a potential substitute notes app. One that’s on my list but not quite at the top is Notefile, which is a simple Menubar drop-down menu notes app. It doesn’t cost much and doesn’t do much but what it does is a bit different than other notes apps.
Most Mac notes apps have an option to create a note or check notes with a click to a Menubar icon and Notefile follows that tradition.
Click and view notes. Click to create a note. Click to share notes via Mail, Messages, Twitter or Facebook.
Where Notfile differs from the common riffraff of Mac note taking apps is a few unique features. For example, Notefile lets you calculate math from within a note. There’s no need to open Calculator to calculate. Notefile does it within a note. And, there’s also a Notefile Dashboard Widget if you’d prefer no clicks at all.
Other features are more mundane. Keyboard shortcuts. Tear-off windows. Search. Import and export text files. The Notefile developer also offers something called JuneCloud Sync, which syncs your notes between the Macs, or the companion Notefile app for iOS devices.
Notes can be synchronized through iCloud, too. Interestingly, both the Mac and iOS versions of Notefile are priced the same.
