Overview

Jreepad allows you to store and edit all your little nuggets of text in an incredibly intuitive tree structure. Each "node" on the tree has a plain-text "article" associated with it, meaning that a Jreepad file becomes almost a freeform database, storing all kinds of information.

Write to-do lists, plan the structure of your book, keep a library of code snippets... people use it for all sorts.

    It's hard to believe no one has reviewed this app in the couple of months it's been out. Let me say flat out that it's just great as a do-anything organizer, simply considered as a Java-MAC hybrid. When you add the cross-platform capabilities (it's modelled on, and surpasses, a WIN app named Treepad), it becomes irreplaceable. OK, Java grouches are going to say it's slow, it's ugly, etc, etc .... I can only say I'll take a small hit in performance (if it's there, I haven't noticed it, beyond slow loadup) for the kind of versatility Jreepad offers. I'm not just talking about the ability to take my old Windows cr** and make it function under MAC. (By the way, if you're a converted Win person like me, and kept your old files in Treepad form, Jreepad will read them right off the transfer disk.) I'm talking about versatility =within= MAC. It will swallow text clippings without a problem, and has lots of import-export options. Because it keeps its files in a pure-text form, I can keep them as .txt files and do searches with EasyFind. (EasyFind is free from Devon. You need it because of Jreepad's one minor flaw: it searches only notes, not within notes. But it's a cool incremental search, and if you keep tiny notes, it offers no problem at all.) Jreepad works beautifully with Devon products. I use it to siphon off accumulating notes in DevonNotes. Because it uses plain text format, I can also convert its content easily for SBook, and therefore MAC Address Book, and so on ... Also works just fine with HogBay, since both have a tree structure. Investigate it for yourself, and you'll find it indispensable. And you can't beat the price ....

    Apps like this are incredibly useful. Interested parties should also check out the Firefox extension "Sted Sidebar". Simple, functional, and also free.
