Well, I've just tried it and I think the price is a joke!
So little features for 30$? Not even label colors for the collections!
I'm sticking to iNotepad (which has become free in the meantime ;-) even if the interface is not as stylish, or rather pay 45$ for Scrivener who does a looooot more.

Where could I find a copy of v. 1 of MyNotes. I do not use this app frequently. I recently upgraded to v. 2, but didn't use it after that. And today, I realize that I had some notes in v. 1, that I had not exported in order to be able to import them into v. 2. Not a lot of notes, but still some useful notes. If somebody could direct me to a copy of v. 1 that I could download, this would be much appreciated - since there seems to be no way to contact support...

After installing the December 2011 update, this program was totally broken - all previous entries lost. I used Time Machine to save the day, but although I offered to help troubleshoot the issue, the dev never responded.

This week, I tried to contact him one last time re: any potential update for Mountain Lion. But the Mishimo website is down, and e-mail gets bounced back undelivered.

Bummer. This was a nice little program.

And if anyone's reading this and takes pity on me, the thing I'll miss MOST about MyNotes is the manual ordering of notes within a group or folder.

Nobody else does this. Not Evernote, SoHo Notes, Devon Note... Nobody. But MyNotes ALWAYS did.

Most programs offer the options of sorting by creation date, by edit date, or by title (alphabetically), but don't allow true ordering capability.

A simple example - I have a group of notes titled WEEKLY, and there are 7 notes in that group - Sunday, Monday, etc.

But in Evernote (for example) I cannot arrange the days-of-the-week notes in order - I'm locked into sorting options that don't apply.

So... is there any other note organizing program that actually allows you to ORGANIZE your notes?

Over on the DevonNote page, Macupdate user OldMiller really saved my bacon by pointing out that DevonNote allows manual sorting of folders and notes within them. This was news to me (as the options were not obvious on previous demos of that software.)

I'm now a very content DevonThink Personal User. But why doesn't Evernote allow the same functionality?!

This is an excellent product and I am fine with paying another $30 to update after several years ownership.

My only wish is that it synced between devices, but the developer is working on that, according to the website.

I use this app every day and it saves hours a week. Well worth the modest fee.

For all the whiners about the Mac App Store... It has nothing to do with Apple becoming a "monopoly". No developer is forced to distribute through the App Store. They choose to do so.

Why do they choose to do so? For the simple reason that they actually can make a living now because more people are exposed to their applications and sales increase.

They can now make a fair living through their efforts sold through the App Store, and they can spend more time on development and less on administration and paperwork.

Yet here are people sobbing because they don't get a discount on a $30 app. It's a $30 app, not $300. A developer can spend hundreds of hours delivering a new release, but at low traditional-shareware fees their efforts are reimbursed at below minimum wage.

The app store better rewards developers who provide quality products like myNotes.

Spend less at Starbucks for a couple of days and support small, independent developers.

Well, shoot. This is the whole thing about the Mac App Store... stuff starts to become available ONLY that way... Apple gets more and more of a monopoly, thus can dictate the market... I'm not going to pay full price for an update I don't know is significant just to be tied into the MAS scheme! This is B.S.

I have had this program for some time. Very nice and useful. However as I paid for it once I was expecting a discount with this next upgrade. Imagine my surprise to hear from the developer that I had to purchase it again at full price. This a new angle to me. Guess I will be looking for other software to do this job once my present version no longer works.

Version 2 is a major update and the first paid update for over 6(!) years. Those who purchased previous version during the last two months were eligible for a free upgrade.

Guess I am used to a discount. All the other companies I have dealt with give a discount when upgrading. I have assumed this is the standard practice.

myNotes 2 is available exclusively through Mac App Store and unfortunately App Store doesn't allow developers to create discounts to specific user groups.

I understand that limitation. However, other developers of software I have that are also now in the ap store will continue to email me with upgrade discount options. So I know it is possible to do it that way.

Rpitcairn: We live in a new era. The MAS has made it impossible to get discounts or demos. Honestly, I've seriously started thinking about switching to Windoze or Linux. I've been with Apple products since 1987, but I don't like these recent approaches.

I agree, it has changed. I probably like many others made some regretted purchases at the app store and learned my lesson. Now I am not buying anything unless I can demo it first. I think developers are learning this too and I see more options of trying and THEN buying in the Apple store.

With regard to myNotes, I can accept that it's a major upgrade and such. However, it would be nice to have a better sense of what makes this upgrade "major." All MacUpdate says is "new features" and Lion support. I don't think it should be the customer's job to figure out what's new, and I especially don't think I should have to fork out $30 just to see if what's new is really "major" to me or not.

I quite agree. That is what has happened to me in that I purchased something untried, sounded great, but was not really that much after all. A disappointment and no way to get a refund.

I am adding to this to let everyone know that I lost ALL my notes and data of the last several years. The app will no longer open my datafile even though the data still in it. I have tried all the fixes I can think of and there is no other problem with other apps or functions. I have emailed the developer twice begging for help in getting this data back and there is NO response and it has been some weeks now.

Looks like it might be a decent notepad but 29.95 is a lot of money
to shell out without even being able to take it for a test drive.

What's with all these app store developers expecting customers to blindly pay them for products they don't even know will work for them.

Uh oh. The website is down. E-mails to the dev are getting bounced back as undeliverable.

I think this one's gone.

Anyone know whether it still works under OS 10.7

The story is: it's in the App Store. And if you bought it already, you can pay 30$ another time to get a up-tp-date app! Thanks you a lot!
