It was sad day when Hogbay notebook changed from a text organizer to an outliner. It was a sad day when notebook was discontinued and Mori was introduced with a different file format. It was a sad day when Mori was sold to another developer. It was a sad day Mori didn't get developed much. It was a sad day when Mori ceased to exist. It is a sad day that no other app comes close to what was Hogbay notebook version 2! Idiots!

On a note, MacJournal has been around since 2002!

couldn't have said it better... To my disgust i tried to download this software after a fresh install, only to find apokalypse.com is unreachable and no site carries a mirror... sigh...

Link to the developer's site is not working any more (Error 404!)
Bought this a long time ago and loved it.
RIP.

But it still perfectly compatible with Lion and maybe I'll find some use for it.

The developer recently posted the following message in his own support forum:

I don't have a Mac compatible with Lion these days (actually, I don't even have a Mac), so I can't test and debug compatibility problems directly. I have to rely on the reports I get from users. That process is less than optimal. So I've reworked Mori's internals and hope that the cause has been eliminated.

While I can't guarantee the new 1.6.13 release actually works well under Lion, it's reworked views does offer a distinct advantage to users: the ability to see outlines graphically and drag and drop entries from this tree view to other apps.

$99.95 Really ??? Scrivener is less than half this price and five or six stars above it.

I used Mori years ago, but after the change in ownership I moved on. There were lots of promises that were never kept. Anyway I started putting action notes in OmniOutliner Pro, articles in DEVONthink Pro, info scraps in Notational Velocity, and private info in 1Password. I find stuff with Tembo and HoudahSpot. I recently started using Day One for a diary. You might want to check out Scrivener.

This product category doesn't stand still, especially not with Evernote driving the bus. So it's a shame to see software like this sit so long with no updates. (I'm looking at you, too, MyNotes...)

On the other hand, I own Clockwork, by the same dev as Mori, and although it hasn't been updated in nearly 3 years, it's a piece of software I use DAILY, and I'm not sure what I'd do without it.

I used Mori for a long time. But I have dropped Mori now. Instead I will continue with MacJournal.

I really like Mori - it's as close to the Windows app "MyInfo" as I could find. I use(d) MyInfo for years to hold all my various info (many, many, many websites), when I switched to Mac, I needed a replacement - Mori was it. In fact, I think it was the first Mac app I bought (back when it was still Hog Bay's).

But the new developer hasn't done squat other than announce that the upcoming (whenever that is) "Pro" version will be 200 freakin' dollars. Meanwhile there are all these great new to-do apps and calendar apps and so on and so forth. DevonThink rolled out a 2.0 version of their product. Mori remains stuck in the mud. Evernote covers a lot of the ground Mori did as well - I just don't want to put critical data out there on it.

If the Apokalypse doesn't want to work on Mori - fine - but find someone who does and sell it to them at least. Mori is a great app ... but there is zero developer support or development on it now, and this has been the case for at least six months. Buyer Beware.

All your points are fair. I think the developer himself would disagree with you, but for users (like me) there's been virtually no significant development for at least 2 years. This may change in the future, but as you note other software products are currently more attractive.

The developer recently posted the following message in his own support forum (http://apokalypsesoftware.com/products/node/2762):

>>What I'd like to see is more representation in other forums. I've only been able to get a few sites to cover updates and the stuff Apokalypse is doing. I'd like to have you guys requesting more coverage by the likes of MacDailyNews, MacRumors, MacNN, AppleInsider, or whatever sites you frequent for Mac news. Competitors get covered. Mori should too!

I bought Hog Bay Notebook and I really liked its successor Mori, but after several months under new ownership alas there is no significant new development and bugs are not fixed for months.

Now I started to look for alternatives and Together seems very promising. Don't overlook the Library Manager in Together, it gives you Mori's multi document feature back.

Mori complains that the included doc "Getting Started.mori" is the wrong format.
