Slidepad is no longer supported and version 1.2.6 has started crashing on startup. Guess all my notes for the last couple years are long gone. Wonderful.

Pretty strange: Slidepad looks like being abandoned, though the download link at creativebe.com still works...
The dev site instead is redirected to incrediblebee.com where there is no trace of Slidepad!
Except for that, I must say that the slide function works better than with Sidenote (used Sidenote for years on Tiger and then Leopard, but not always sliding when nearing the mouse to the side of the screen, while Slidepad does).
On the other hand, drag and drop of pictures doesn’t work perfectly out of Slidepad while it’s ok with Sidenote...
Ande Slidepad occasionnaly crashes.
Nobody’s perfect! ;-)

This app has had a raw deal, it works in Lion and does the job, slides away nicely takes images and notes etc and is easy to use.

Does anyone know where it keeps its files? There is a slidepad folder in application support which holds a .sav file...is this it?

FYI, the download link isn't working. The new link to download SlidePad (current version is 1.2.6):

On another note, the icon is a freaking Skype rip-off.

Still doesn't handle changed font/window colors correctly upon relaunch...I've swapped font and background colors for white text on a blue background, but Slidepad always reverts to a white background while keeping white text, leaving me with a washout...I'll keep with Sidenote for now...

Do not bother to download this lamentable attempt at a rip-off. Have a look at the free original, the marvellous Sidenote -- http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/17654/sidenote

At least it's good to see they have been unable to earn money from it -- they have presumably been unable to fool enough people.

Pierre ( http://www.chatelp.org/?page_id=5 ) explains why there has been no update to Sidenote for a while, but Hey! it works beautifully, and it's superbly crafted.

SlidePad is not flexible. Its notes take over half the height of the screen, and this can be adjusted only minimally. I find it very obtrusive. When the developer addresses this problem, I'll consider SlidePad again.

I purchased this as a sidenote replacement for Leopard. I paid $9.99 via MacZot.

I initially found it somewhat lacking but the developer quickly replied to my comments. A feature suggestion I made (changing the window height) even made it into this release.

IMO, it's priced too high for what it does and that will keep it out of the hands of most users.
Seems like a responsive, responsible developer, FWIW.


IMO, $9.99 - $12.99 is about what a basic notepad is worth, even one that slides out from the screen.

YMMV
