Very basic, limited features. Pretty interface. Not a serious contender in the note taking and information management alternatives for Macs.

Bought this back in April 2011 and was willing to wait for promised implementations. We are 3 months from a year and not one has been made. In fact no updates at all that I can remember. This app had so much potential but I am moving on. Another developer that over promised and delivered not much so far. This app has the bones to become indispensable but not as it stands now. Animation continues to be slow and it's just an over priced note pad as it stands. My bad for buying.

Got this a while back from a promo (from Macbuzzer). I like it overall, but it's slow, and the UI effects / animations seem like they'd be nice, but they're choppy and unattractive because of this. Fix that and I'd give it a better review. Also wow, $34.50? Hell, I'm glad I got this for free, because there's no way I'd pay that much for this. Overpriced for what it does, IMO.

Nice Job. This app is great and I have only been trying it for a few days. I love the clean sleek UI and the ease of access for quick notes, etc. I like others here have used Circus Ponies notebook and all the others (and many of them are good for more complicated or specific notes needs) but Thoughts is easier to work with. Yes it does lack some of the features of a CPN or Devonthink Pro but IMHO that might just be what makes it better. I agree with a previous poster who says this has the makings of a great app. When I want to jot down a quick note for later, or grab a bit of info to use later I don't want to have to figure out the program or remember how to utilize some overly complicated process. CPN has not kept up for the casual user (some software devs are good at keeping the app simple while making it very powerful…CPN is not one of them). I say that because CPN is the best for structured and research notes but not for right now unimportant to anyone but me notes, like gathering shopping comparisons or grabbing directions from a web site that I will erase once used. The trick here is the ease of keeping track of your bits of info and the separate notebooks make organizing/finding the info very easier than spending lots of time tagging for me. I can easily and quickly start a notebook about whatever I am working on and just delete it when I am finished. I contacted the dev to ask about the programs ability to sync with dropbox (as some database programs do not do well over the long run when cloud syncing). However the devs response was quick and helpful. I will buy but have one more question…do I have to buy two licenses for one person on two machines? I will with hold a 5 rating until a few more features are added. GREAT JOB!!!

Sorry but for the money it has about 1/10th the features of either CP Notebook or MacJournal. It's a nice design but I think the developer is charging far too much for this considering the extremely bare-bones feature-set. Keep going a few more years and it MAY be worth what you're asking.
