Although this app says it's "free," there appears to be a 15-document limit, which is lifted once the user pays $9.95. I wrote the author about the confusion, but there's been no reply. Really nice app, even with the limitation. mt

xPad is the most useful note pad app out there. I have organized and stored a ton of data and find new uses for it every day. It needs to be upgraded to 64-bit. Apple is on the path to support only 64-bit software and xPad will not run once Apple makes the changeover permanent. Garrett, would it be possible for you to go to upgrade to 64-bit? There are almost 30,000 downloads of this app an I am sure that thousands of users would appreciate it. If it is not in your portfolio, would you consider making it open source?

Have this small handy tool since Snow Leopard. I am now with Sierra and xPad is still working great with all notes I have taken all these years.

Handy little note app. Allows drag/drop of pictures, pdf's etc. too. However, it seems I cannot export pictures as pictures (and pdf's as pdf's). Neither by exporting, nor by drag/drop.

This is the same version that was created in August, 2007 -- and it works great for me under Mac OS 10.9.5. I use it for all sorts of things - especially articles, etc., that I wish to copy from the web. Not sure about more recent OS versions - but it's well worth a try. Version 1.2.6

I love this application. Is anyone having issues with it after updating to El Capitan? I almost want to go back to Yosemite for this! There's a giant shadow that's not transparent, around the app window. If anyone finds a fix or an app that's like this.. let me know please!!!

Have used Xpad for about two months and I like it a lot, even if it is no longer supported. Works like it says it does and saves the files in the drawer between sessions. However, I have a question: the "drawer" all of a sudden switched sides, i.e. it used to open to the right of the main window, now it opens to the left. I can't find any option in Preferences or elsewhere to toggle it back. Anyone know what the trick is?

By happenstance I figured it out myself: if the app's window is too close to one edge of the screen, the drawer will open on the opposite side. As an updated review, I'd add that I still use it all the time, have never lost anything (even though I keep many files in the drawer buffer without exporting/saving them) and in all this time it has only crashed once -- and still didn't lose anything. I'm running OS 10.6.8.

This was a superb note-taking program. But, as the developer announces on his website, it died in 2007: it is no longer being developed or supported. Oh for something as good as this that can handle innovations such as iPad/iPhone sync!

I've used this app for years - definitely the most robust note-taking app I've found, and was told to download this by fellow Mac users, whose it was also on their 'Top 10' apps to have lists.

Two days ago I started to work my way through all the note taking apps on MU, to find the right one for me. I'm a tad hamstrung by using OSX 10.4.11, so a lot of the newer apps are a no go area. I need an application that I can throw everything into categories for my writing research, and this is one of the two I'm leaning heavily towards at the moment. Small ram footprint (17mb all day), and very stable. I've contacted the dev to suggest putting a donationware button on the website. If I choose this to be my app of choice, I'd be happy to press a paypal button to say thankyou.
