I recently downloaded the 2.1 version of NotePad for my Mac computer. Upon installation, the background of the notepad seemed to disappear, leaving only text and the interface buttons. I am running a 10.5.8 (latest version of Leopard). Overall, I appreciate and recognize the effort of the developer(s), but don't believe that this widget is worth $10 or $5 even without the background glitch. As many have already said, there are other notepad widgets that are both free and reliable out on the web. Personally, I would recommend Secret Notepad and DashNotes as good free notepad widgets. Once this bug/glitch is resolved, I would be happy to change my ratings for my review on this site.

I had the same problem. I LOVED this widget and I was ready to pay 10 bucks the first day. I couldn't figure out why all of these other notepad widgets that weren't nearly as good were much bigger deals. I then slowly figured out that I couldn't buy notepad, and that there was no way I could get the software to work. Solutions for you and me follow. If you need to retrieve your stuff: Notepad stores everything as txt documents in the subfolder HD/Users/User/Library/Notepad Lists don't come out formatted so well, but all the data is there. Easyfind, a freeware producte brought to you by the great people at devonthink is really wonderful for finding stuff like that and those extra sticky things that uninstallers don't find. But I still want Notepad! Yah, me too. I haven't figured this one out. I'd love for someone to send me a serial number. There are a number of different products. A good half dozen that I can think of off the top of my head. They all have different qualities that notepad had--one has a password, one exports, one resizes, one has font control, etc. Some have more than one of those. If you used notepad for something really specific, reply and I'll try and see if I can recommend something. But I'd also just recommend doing some good google searches for notepad widget mac and downloading a few. sorry for the double post--didn't realize replied were threaded so that they weren't shown on the main page

Does anyone know where I can get a serial? I made the mistake of putting a lot of important notes in there before noticing I couldn't register the product. Eeek! (Obviously I am willing to buy the product.)

Widget Machine website doesn't work anymore. I've tried to purchase it couple of times but the site is always unavailable. Where does it move to? Or WidgetMachine is already out of business?

If the Apple Stickies widget didn't provide enough quick note-taking functionality for you, I highly recommend trying this widget out. The ability to create multiple, searchable pages is very useful, and something completely unexpected from a widget, seeing as though the majority of them are very simplistic. The only other thing I can think of that would be great would be an undo command for times when I clumsily delete important information. For the price, NotePad does enough though. With its nice font size and well-positioned buttons, NotePad allows me to cram a ton of information into a tiny space, quickly and easily.

Probably the most full-featured and powerful widget I've seen.

A great little widget. Why won't I purchase? Let me count the ways: 1) You have to log in to their website in order to purchase. 2) Website does not support my browser of choice, OmniWeb. 3) No clear directions on how to create a log in. 4) Did I mention this: you have to log in to the website in order to purchase! (You can tell that this one really has me riled up!) Sorry guys, this is ridiculous!

Great little app. This uses the dashboard well and makes it functional as well as frivolous. Many free widgets are available, from major govt or commercial agencies, I guess as loss leaders. Many free widgets are fluff and flash. 5 bucks for well designed improvement on the sad old sticky ? This is just great for phone messages etc Give the developers a break. Support their enterprise cheapskate. Most of their widgets are free and nice too.
