is an application that stores and retrieves notes.
In Notational Velocity, the same area is used both for creating notes and searching. I.e., in the process of entering the title for a new note, related notes appear below, letting users file information there if they choose. Likewise, if a search reveals nothing, one need simply press return to create a note with the appropriate title.
Its unique advantages are as follows:
- Modeless Operation
Searching for notes is not a separate action; rather, it is the primary interface.
- Incremental Search
Searching encompasses all notes' content and occurs instantly with each key pressed.
- Transparent Encryption
All information is compressed and encrypted (enabled optionally) before it is recorded to disk.
- Mouseless Interaction
Notational Velocity's window was designed for keyboard input above all else, and thus has no buttons.
- Data Instead of Documents
There is no manual "saving" in Notational Velocity; all modifications take effect immediately.
- Complete External Access
