MacNote3LE3.0.1

18 June 2012

Hassle-free notepad software; free version available.

Overview

MacNote3LE is an advanced version of MacNote and is a whole new version of the earlier MacNote2. It still responds to commands very quickly and has a familiar interface, but also has many additional features, such as facilities for selecting multiple pages and exporting images. MacNote3 is easy to use (itfs similar to Notepad, or Scrapbook -- applications familiar to users of Mac OS9). Also, it allows the user to edit text via AppleScript or by means of regular expressions.

Features:

1. Simplicity
The most important feature of MacNote3 is its simplicity. It can be used in a fairly intuitive way, and there is no need to pay any attention to its file structure, or worry about saving data. New data is saved automatically and in a manner compatible with unhindered use. I hope that, for purchasers, MacNote3 will always be the stationery of first recourse.

2. Link
The user is able in any MacNote3 page, to install links to URLs, Files, other pages of MacNote3 and messages in Mail.app. Thus, pages can serve as an application launcher or a bookmark. In OSX 10.4 or higher, it is possible also to make a link to a message in Mail.app, so it's easy to organize a To-Do page.

3. Multi-Window and Tab
MacNote3 allows the opening of multiple windows. In addition, multiple pages can be opened, via a tab, in one window.

4. Increment Search
MacNote3 provides a swift incremental search. The user can quickly locate a needed page, even though it may be hidden among many others. MacNote3 also provides a list of "Frequently-used pages" and "Recently-used pages", so the user is free to store as many pages as required.

5. AppleScript
MacNote3 is AppleScript compatible. Text data from MacNote3 can be transferred to another application via AppleScript. For example: templates for creating mail messages may be stored in MacNote3, and by employing AppleScript, new email messages can be created from these templates. Or, by means of AppleScript, lyrics from iTunes can be imported into a newly-created page.
AppleScript can edit text of MacNote3 too, so it's easy to insert HTML tags and so on. Of course you can write a new script and expand the ability of MacNote3 by yourself.

6. Iconize
If the user so desires, MacNote3 windows can be made to appear as tiny icons, and thus can be displayed separately on the desktop. In this mode a MacNote3 window is unobtrusive, yet allows the convenient entering of new data.

7. Export to iPod
It's easy to export page data to an iPod, and therefore memos can be read on an iPod. MacNote3 can export its page data to any kind of iPod - from the oldest models to the most recent touch iPod or iPhone (with the exception of shuffle). Now MacNote for iPhone and iPod touch "mmNote" is available (freeware). MacNote3 can synchronize its data with mmNote via Wifi, so the users can refer to and edit MacNote3 memo and its images on iPhone and iPod touch too.

8. Compatible with other standard services of Mac OSX
MacNote3 is compatible with other services that apply in Mac OSX. A new page can be created via the "Service" menu of another application; a page in MacNote3 can be opened via Spotlight; a page previewed via QuickLook, and so on.

Another app that doesn't give you the option to set in preferences where to save files - no g for me just for this simple reason....

In my case the usefulness of the app has to be set against a message I get constantly on activation 'Do you want the application “MacNote3LE.app” to accept incoming network connections?' The only way to stop this I've found (OS x 10.9) is to turn off the firewall which I don't want to do. Does anyone have a solution for this issue?

I want to like this app but can't make it sync to my iPad. I am disappointed that there is so little support for such a potentially good app, no easy way to access the developer, no user forum.

Like other, I have looked at every note app I can find. Nothing gives me quite the same... the total features so organized. I access it constantly when on the computer.

This is a great little app but there is no iOS app equivalent that I can find, unless someone can point one out

This is my favorite Note pad app, and I have reviewed many of them over the years. Simple to use, very strong search function, allows categories and subscategories, allows color fonts and highlights, can insert pics, has standard formatting menu and rulers, excellent documentation. I believe there is even an iPhone app although I haven't used it.

I have looked long and hard for a note taking app that did a decent job searching throughout all notes. This one is one of very few that sequentially steps through each note and highlights the targeted text. Another nice feature I like is the ability to nest folders. For the money, it ain't too bad.

Easy to use, and with lots of options to meet different needs. Just some personal preference: it would be nice if i can color the title's like a label instead of the font of it.

best of its kind! I had given up using notes-applications an just left files and folders on my desktop which are actual and important. This application convinced me by the simplicity of usage and still giving a lot of options to customize. Great! and very "mac-like" to me.

I usually am very pleased with software that isn't just oriented towards an Anglo market, but in this case, it would be nice if there was an English language manual included with this version. The site is a nightmare as well. I can't figure out how to contact the developer.

This is the notepad I have been working my way towards - through every single note app out there - for several years. Why is this The One? Not sure ... maybe the iconize, maybe the right combo of simplicity and function, and not hideous ... maybe MacNote just got it right! All I can say is, try it out for yourself. This long-time Mac user says, Five Stars!
