Notational Velocity 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 more...
