This is probably the most-used tool I have because it's so very simple to access from the desktop tool bar,so versatile and flexible in the way it lets me create even more new notes or add to (or edit) existing ones, so adaptable to anything I want to put into it and anything I want to take out of it. If I create a new user-name and password, I have an immediate place to store them before I forget them (goodbye, all you scattered notes across the desk!), if I suddenly think of something urgent, I can make a note without having to shift away from whatever I'm working in, if I need to keep track of which apps are on trial for how long and at what final cost--Jotter is there!

Editing a doc and think of what needs to be done in another section or another doc? Jot your idea. Never leave your work.

Have to stop editing a photo but know what your next steps should be? Jot them while you're still looking at your photo and program.

Incoming info you need to keep and access? Jot it without stopping what you're doing.

Jotter makes the other note-taking apps seem . . . well, klutzy.

Have I mentioned that I really like Jotter?

This is one of those, "why didn't i think of that" apps. So simple, but so useful! A small pencil in your menubar - click it and access notes that you've typed. Or create a new one; or create a new one with the contents of your clipboard. And no mouse required either - you can setup hot keys for both types of new notes.

And the best part - when you're done typing your note, just close the pop up window. No saving required!

You can export notes, change the fonts in them, print them, and delete them. Notes can also contain graphics which is cool [esp. if you have a graphic in your clipboard].

My only complaint about the software, and it is a small one, is that the area around the pencil in the menubar is too large. I have a few icons in my menubar, so I like them to be as tightly together as possible. With the pencil icon of Jotter, there is a lot of space to the right and left of the icon that should be trimmed.

Oh, and well worth the money - great value for those that have thoughts they like to jot down and quickly get out of the way afterwards....great app!

With many note or jotter apps about i chose this one for it's simple functional form. Gives a toolbar icon and dropdown menu which allows you to save notes and use at will. With two shortcuts, for new note and note from clipboard and export as rtf it serves as a perfect jotter app form me. Well priced even without a MuPromo discount. Recommended.

Well, I installed Jotter but it's essentially dead in the water. Clicking on "new note" or "TODO list" from the menu bar icon does nothing.....nada, ziltch. So, into the trash it goes.
