What is SideWriter for Mac

SideWriter is easily accessible by hiding on the edge of your screen. It slides out as soon as you touch the edge of your screen where it hides.

SideWriter allows you to quickly write down small snippets of text. Or use SideWriter to make notes while working on a project.

SideWriter automatically saves all your notes to your Documents folder as you type, using the filename as you entered in the header.

Window sizing and placement is reeeally WONKY, and there's some other nuisance stuff, all, I suspect, to make SideWriter differ from sidenote...much like Windows had to differentiate itself from OS X.

Under any circumstances, though, I'm a buyer!

SIDEWRITER RUNS IN macOS 10.14, MOJAVE, and it's 64 bit, so it will continue to run in future OS versions; at first look, it appears to be the replacement for my soon to be defunct 32 bit sidenote for which I've been looking.

I'm looking for a replacement for sidenote. SideWriter has less "tools" than sidenote has and doesn't doesn't support pictures. I hope the dev is looking to implement a support for pictures too.

This is the best note software that I've ever used, for my particular needs, out of myriads that I've tried. This is simple, clean, functional, elegant, and stays out of the way while still being instantly available anytime I need it. It has exactly just the right amount of features for my use. The developer is really responsive too. I suggested a feature, and within one day he had released a new version that implemented that feature. He also responded within an hour of a small bug report I sent, and he worked with me for two days while we tracked it down and squashed it. Very professional and very responsive! 5 Stars all around!

With excellent response from the author I have sorted out my initial problems. From our discussions I am convinced that he is fully committed to making this a 5 star app, and with a few tweaks to the user interface I reckon it will be there. It suits my requirements perfectly.

Nice. Unlike Sidenote, allows you to see the window from all spaces! Simple (maybe?) request: different colors for different note pages? Thank you.

A suggestion after 3 minute!: 1. Please let user to choose any folder for collecting side notes. 2. Please (I know it's too hard but!) prepare a simple environment for managing notes. I mean a form that you can see all notes' title, and then you can delete some notes and so.

Not reviewing since this is in beta, but I do have some observations: I like the simplicity and the unobtrusiveness of the app. I also like that I can set how quickly the app shows and hides and that I can place the window pretty much anywhere along the side of my desktop. What I would like to see: 1) ability to set type style as right now the font size is way too small, IMO; 2) quicker way to switch between notes, perhaps by clicking on the corner of the note? 3) dedicated folder where all the note files can be stored, rather than in my documents folder as individual files scattered throughout; 4) search capability. Good work, I'm looking forward to future updates.
