Lightweight, simple to organize notepad.

Overview

Nottingham is an elegant notepad for OS X. Designed to be lightweight and easy to use, it's a breath of fresh air perfect for storing whatever is on your mind. Best of all, it keeps your data safe by syncing to your iPhone and the Web via Simplenote.

Features
  • Lightning-fast search across even the largest library of notes.
  • Organize your notes with @tags.
  • Create [[WikiLinks]] between your notes.
  • Store your files as plain text notes so you can easily sync with Dropbox.
  • View fully customizable Markdown previews of your notes. (Coming soon!)
  • Completely keyboard navigable - no mouse needed.
  • Version 3.0 is completely rewritten from the ground up in Swift 3 to take full advantage of macOS's newest features and to lay a solid foundation for future improvements.

What's new in Nottingham

Version 3.0.3:

Note: Now requires a 64-bit Intel processor

  • It's now super easy to insert a wiki link to another note. When editing a note, just press ⇧⌘W to pop-up a list of matching note titles you'd like to insert
  • Nottingham now supports editing HTML and Markdown file formats
  • Changed the "Delete Note" hotkey to ⇧⌘Delete so it no longer conflicts with the standard system ⌘Delete (delete to the begging of the current line)
  • Increase the frequency that Nottingham checks for updates
  • A good number of other bug fixes

Weird name. Maybe something to do with Robin Hood stealing from the rich- $20 for a notepad? Sure seems like highway robbery to me.

Ok Tyler... I'm glad this is being updated, and the new design/ layout looks very nice & clean as does the font design but it seems at this point to lack a number of features it previously had in v. 2.1.3... 1: When editing/ formatting a note the Format > Font menus are now non-functional, as is the system font panel - hence text can't be formatted (font size/ bold/ italic etc) 2: No way to add 'tags' or 'pin' notes as previously, nor any way to colour them. 3: No option to display the note list above the current note as previously. 4: Re: Hiding the note list at the side: To be useful this needs some kind of KB shortcut that does this or a UI button or something. I'd be happy to pay £10 for this if you brought back/ implemented the above. = Yes it's a paid app with 14 day trial now...

Nottingham is not free any more : 14.99$
The app is not mentioned in their FAQ page.
Is it really supported?
The app appears to "wake up" at the same time as nvAlt.

Alas, Nottingham appears to be abandoned, with no updates for over a year. Tyler seems to have moved on from this project. Simplenote became enormously important to me two years ago as a repository for all kinds of personal data, synced across multiple devices. I used to base my Simplenote access in Nottingham, and it was great, but then moved to Justnotes when that became a paid app (and became much more capable, too), so I don't miss Nottingham. But, for a time, it was a great program for my needs.

All I'd like is to be able to access my notes from the menu bar without having the app taking up Dock space. You can't do that with Notational Velocity but you can't really complain about that as that's free. I'm a bit surprised that Nottingham, which isn't free and should have superior features to NV, doesn't allow you to just run it from the Menubar. In that regard, I'll have to stick with Justnotes, a simpler free app which also syncs with Simplenote and works just from the Menubar. If this seemingly simple functionality becomes available with Nottingham, I could then think about switching.

Alas, JustNotes is Lion-only, while Nottingham runs on Snow Leopard.

Not only that - having just got the new Justnotes, I find that I can't even access notes from the Menubar anymore. Even though it's now commercial, it's not as useful as the previous free version.

I would love to give this app more but I am using it instead of voodoo pad as a comparison because I need something that takes notes and syncs acros all my macs, so I h=gave this a tryout. I started by importing longhand the notes I had until i realised that Nottingham just stores everything as a text doc and I could export from anything into text and then drag it to the Nottingham folder. Some import export explanation might have been useful here. Then I came to look at how intuitive Nottingham is and it isn't. Its just a framework for list a bunch of text documents in a folder. Whilst it has some wiki capability it leaves no trail and is not easy to navigate between notes. This is its downfall. I click on a link between notes, and a link again, I want to easily get to the first note but can't. Its an interesting app but needs a lot more work, yes it syncs using simplenote (itself a bit of a rip-off) but voodoo pad it is not its more a sort of edgies in a box with a little wiki thrown in.

I'd love to review Nottingham but after paying for it, it won't download. I keep getting a black page which starts to begin a download but never gets there.

Thanks for the fast reply Misha. I was able to download a different way. I think that the link in the email receipt is broken... or something in that chain is messed. What I did was go to the Developers web site and download the trial app. After installing it, I went to its prefs and entered my serial. All is OK.

I read that this app will sync with MobileMe. Does this mean that it will sync over the air to my MobileMe notes, thereby any changes will appear in my iPhone notes app, and in Mail's notes, for that matter? Thanks

The dev responded quickly to any questions I had. This really is an excellent notepad app and the ability to sync with my iPhone and the web is really a nice feature. Also, I just love how I can see other notes I have in the nice crisp sidebar... it just works perfectly for what I need on my desktop to jot simple notes in class as well as draft up instructions that I need to remember on a regular basis. This works perfectly because it is all easily accessed in that crisp sidebar I mentioned earlier. All in all, I really have enjoyed using this app and honestly, for the 8.99 I got it for here on MacUpdate, that was practically a steal considering the price I have paid for many other programs for organizing my to do list and what not that are 5x as pricey. This was just what I needed to manage simple to-do lists along with notes for my engineering classes in college so I couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you MacUpdate for the steal of a price and thank you dev for creating such a wonderful app and for supporting it with your quick response time and for your helpful responses!

I'm a big fan of Nottingham. The markdown support is a feature I especially appreciate. $20 hardly seems like a huge price to pay for a great app, especially when the developer is so quick to respond to bug reports and feature requests. I tried using Notational Velocity and JustNotes, but I'm glad I discovered Nottingham.
