Not sure this is a problem, but why does Antnotes use up so much memory at idle, ±200MB, whereas any of my other several "small" apps use much less, ≤50MB? Seems an excessive use of RAM at idle.

Thanks for reporting. Do you insert large images or videos/sounds to your notes? This can be a source of problem. Also we'll check the app for memory leaks as well.


@onickolay, thanks for your reply. no, i don't insert images/videos/sound, i write text only notes. Just now (17 Jun 11:05 PDT) Activity Monitor shows Antnotes occupying 207.4 MB Memory. That's higher even than Safari, which is a notorious memory hog. As it is on my iMac 2011 21.5" with 16GB RAM Antnotes isn't a bank-breaker, still it seems to monopolize an excessive chunk of RAM.


Thanks for prompt reply. Does the same happen when you restart the application? And, is there a lot of notes in archive (in manage notes window)?


No change on quit/restart, or log out log in then newly launch. No archived notes. I have Antnotes running, but I don't use a lot at present.

Intriguing notes/Post-It app that lets you append notes to apecific apps(!) or to the Finder, lets Finder notes disappear or float, lets you change the size, color and font of the text as well as the background color. And you can view all notes from the app itself.

*Slightly* clunky UI but the app recently dropped in price to 99¢ and is well worth the price!

Only downside I've found after a few hours use is that you cannot search for text inside notes, either within notes or across notes from the AntNotes app.

Antnotes is an excellent upgrade to Stickies and similar apps.

It can be as simple or comprehensive as you want it to be. You can add a quick note or something more substantial, adding URLs, images and even video which plays within the note. That's more than I need right now, but it's good to know it's available.

The only thing I'd like to see is an iOS version.
