This software is very easy to use and to come-up-to-speed on. I installed it and then immediately started using it. During my first day using this software I had to go to 5 meetings (4 different projects) and make 10-12 phone calls. At the end of the day I had created 8 pages of notes in TopXNotes. Great software!

Clean, intuitive and easy to use...I like the flexibility and practical aspects of this program. I use it for storing passwords, and other private information.

Use: 4 years

Strengths: Robust Note organiser provides fast access to notes as I need them. Notes auto saaved as you change focus.

Weaknesses: There is no graphics support in the notes; Links to other notes or files would be nice.

Overall: Overall a good product - it has withstood my user time-test ... I am still using it (unlike several others I have tried) so it must be doing all the basics that I need. Also good interaction with the developer for ideas, etc.

"QuickNotes menu- keep your "top notes" in a floater on your desktop always for easy access. MacWorld calls QuickNotes our killer feature!" : a killer for our wallet since a few text editors make it for free and with a nicer G.U.I.

I purchased this to move my notes from Evernote. I wanted to get them off the cloud and hopefully provide a more secure place to store them. I've been a bit disappointed I can't import images, and even more disappointed that special characters, like the Mac keyboard command key, don't import.

Moving files to a different Group can cause the files to either not move, or seem to move to a duplicate target Group. Sometimes renamed Groups revert to the previous Group name when reopening TopXNotes. I'm guessing this is an issue with Lion, but I'm not sure.

I'm hoping that some of the IU flakiness is worked out soon, and possibly images and special characters can be supported soon too.

Images have never been promoted as included in TopXNotes, but they are planned for a new release. On the special characters we support many, like option+ V for a checkmark, option+8 for a bullet, etc. If you have some that don't seem right to you please contact support and we will try to help you.

Thanks for using TopXNotes.

I've used TopXNotes since I saw a demo of it at our Mac user group in 2005. It's very handy for capturing and retrieving all sorts of information. Much of my use involves saving things I come across on the web, like photography and motorcycle maintenance tips.

It's a neat little program that I am pleased to recommend highly.

I really like TopXNotes. I am a spontaneous and fast note writer and QuickNotes is just the thing for me. Dates are important, so I especially like Insert Date. Also I am frequently changing the order of my list and TopXNotes is forgiving for that without the list becoming jumbled up. It also has Spell Check. To finish I like the four different views of different notes and the Organizer. Job well done Tropical Software, Inc.

I've been a user of TopXNotes (and it predecessor) for about 3 years. I originally purchased the product because I had come from a Microsoft environment that provided a rather extensive set of programs that made it very easy to organize and search all the notes I had. TopXNotes caught my eye because of a good review on an Apple user website and I've not looked back
since!

The primary reason I chose TopXNotes was its ability to group my notes much as you would create directories and subdirectories. I use lots of groups and subgroups with multiple entries. This makes the ability to search for something I know I have but I forgot where I placed it very important.

Being able to sync to the iPhone is extremely important for me - I can create notes on the iPhone and have them synced to your desktop. Having the same notes synced to my iPOD gives me a backup of my data when I'm traveling.

Currently, the group/subgroup displays do not work on the iPhone (or any touch device I would guess). I'm anxiously awaiting that feature!!

Using TopXNotes has become second nature because it is so easy to use. TopXNotes is my primary note taking application. I wholeheartedly recommend it!!
