Really nice. At the perfect price.
I'm always meaning to upgrade, but haven't yet.

One of those "why would I ever use this?"

For web 'reseach,' this is just grand.
I've used it to collect information off the web for some writing, cut & pasted into VoodooPad with the hotlinks intact & then crosslink it locally into its own loose database for further processing in other applications.

This is a MUST have application, that along with just a few others, makes the Mac environment special.

The free version of VooDoo Pad may not have the best name, but it does things that competing notepads wouldn't even try. URLs, links, images, and text can be dropped onto the window, and they're as good as stored. Other pads may be better at organizing material, but VooDoo Pad is exceptionally convenient. In fact, I'm seriously thinking of upgrading.

No matter what pad you may use for text, you may end up wanting to stay with VooDoo Pad for all the rest of your digital work.

Regardless of what an app's MU page says about compatibility, an auto updater should not update to a version that is not compatible with the installed operating system, or at an absolute minimum make it clear what the minimum system requirements are. You should not have to go to MU or the developers site first to check the system requirements before allowing the auto updater to run.

(Why do so many Leopard users have pompous attitudes toward Tiger users???)

Anyone know whether the Export to iPhone/iPod Classic includes the iPod Touch?

On my system VoodooPad Lite documents are not directly indexable by Spotlight. VoodooPad Lite makes up for this drawback by creating its own Spotlight index files in ~/Library/Metadata/VoodooPad. However, in this version of VoodooPad Lite, these indexes are deleted whenever the corresponding VoodooPad Lite document is closed. I used Sandbox in Leopard to implement an ACL rule to deny deletion for items in this folder to the user so that I can continue to perform Spotlight searches for VoodooPad lite content whether or not the application or the associated documents are open. I'll have to test a bit more to see how this ultimately works out.

The specified folder should have been "~/Library/Caches/Metadata/VoodooPad", of course. Sorry.

This used to be the king of personal wikies.
How bad the developer decided to abandon all the Tiger users.

First, a few gripes:

- The link button is right next to the home button. I use it for a good 3 hours a day minimum (email tech support job :/) so I can wind up with links for random words all over the place.

- Requiring the purchase of the full version to save in some more portable formats? That's a little underhanded. I guess they have to make money somehow.

- "Check Spelling While Typing" must be set individually for every page and defaults to off. C'mon, if I turn on the spell checker I want it to STAY on. Am I missing a setting?

Besides that, GREAT product. My email productivity has been boosted to superhuman levels since I started using this to keep track of customers, bugs and common replies.

A helpful addition would be the option to send note as an email. Or did I miss that somewhere?

VoodooPad is just incredible! I've been using this Lite Version for a while and I wish I could buy the full version -- I'm a poor grad student, so... =(

I use it mainly as a journal for personal notes and random thoughts. I love the free form that VP allows, never trying to impose a certain way to its user. It is a "zen" application, it adapts to you.

I strongly recommend it.

VoodooPad Lite ---Free version --Can link and include all kinds of pics and things to our text. Email pals say we can launch everything --all iLife is linked to VdP. Editor and toolbar appearance. Outstanding application --for OSX --as BBEdit Lite was for OS7-9. LINK stand alone files. Open with VoodooPad. Note truly a note pad --more of editor with effective Open Recent. Own kind of excellent SEARCH of opened document. Email sending is even my Mail.app. Also all Services work -- Will do Services/Mail/Send Selection only if Mail.app is already open. Has own Services selection --Append to Services Drop page and Make New Page.

This is one of four of 46 demo-ed OSX note pads --that I most often use --and have the most dot.vdoc files on my hard drive. With Notational Velocity, Journler, and MacJournal.

Database location --as much editor as special note pad. All compositions are saved to hard drive file. My Library/Cache is empty.

As good an editor as a special note pad --so --unlike classic note pads --VdP has a host of our Open/SaveAs/Insert/Import/Export actions. File menu has 3 different Opens, 2 Saves, 2 Exports, 1 import. Edit menu has 3 pastes, Append Selection and more. More plugins are being offered daily. Makes a note pad lover --with it's limited Read Ins and Write Outs --burst into tears. :)

Note that the version 3.5.2 of Voodoo Pad Lite is too stupid to realize that version 4.0 is NOT compatible with Mac OS X 10.4.11. Sadly the installer is ALSO too stupid to check what version of Mac OS X it is installing into and happily wipes out your good copy so it can replace it with a worthless copy of 4.0, totally screwing over your ability to use the program in 10.4.

I have written the developer about their bugs.

It is great that this excellent program is provided for free. But self-sabotaging programs are not tolerable. :-P

The server that hosts the file is down... several days ago. Is there any other mirrors available?

Thanks.
