One of my favorite television shows is the BBC’s Doctor Who series, which I’ve watched, off and on, for a few decades. It’s all about a time lord who can, of course, time travel, both forward and backward, and does it with a hot new babe every year or two. What’s not to like?
In the real world about the only kind of time travel we can do is backwards, but there’s Apple, always ahead of the game, providing Mac users with time travel via the Time Machine backup tool. Mac toting notes takers will appreciate the so-called time travel feature in Swift Note which boldly goes where not notes app has gone before.
Swift Note notes are nothing special, just beyond glorified Stickies, but with a feature to die for. A time traveling slider bar.
Swift Note’s slider bar lets you view notes from earlier in the day, yesterday, last week, last month, or somewhere else in the past. Unfortunately, the slider bar does not work in the future so you could see what’s going on then.
Notes are quick and easy to setup, look great with black text on a yellow Stickies-like background (which you can change to a different color to suit your mood).
Swift Note also has a new Notification Center Widget which displays your notes with a click to the Mac’s upper right corner. Notes can also be stored and synchronized between Macs by using iCloud. What would you expect to pay for time traveling notes? You’ll get change back from a $2.00. Alas, Swift Note is Mac App Store only and there’s no try-before-you-buy option. Otherwise, it works, it’s fun, and yet another way to do notes on a Mac.
