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.

If money is your concern, there is National Velocity. It maybe a little overrated, but is easier, cleaner and with better looks than NV. With a few extra features than NV too.

Is the perfect easy notepad. Simple.

I have tried a lot of notepads (including NV), textedit, those complex like Smultron or TextWrangler, which all are fine in what they do, but this is marvelous.

I was looking for a simple notepad (I make lots of copy/paste on my everyday work) so I used to have lots of textedit windows. I need to save in txt files, and autosave. I even can sync my notes to my iPhone!!

On Lion with the Full Screen View, perfect for my everyday work!

The licence fee of $20 does seem a lot when substantially the same app, Notational Velocity, is free and open source, and an excellent fork of it, NVAlt, which uses a very good implementation of Markdown and Preview, is also free.

I would get the latter

and think about giving the developer, Brett Terpstra, a voluntary donation if you think it's as good as I do
