Not bad, but not that user friendly as is. requires that you keep going back to the note list manually after closing and opening again from the menubar, otherwise stays on the same page you left it, including the settings tab. Changing the font on one word changes the font on the entire database. Also a bit sluggish when changing page/tabs. Starting a new search requires highlighting and deleting of the previous word, there is no X button. Just some minor things.

This appears to be the exact same app (other than offering Dark mode) as NoteAway...right down to the free version vs the $5 Pro version. Both apps are offered in the App store under two different companies. I've used NoteAway for years and love it...highlighting text and using PopClip to quickly send it to NoteAway is a feature I use daily. (and yes, MiniNote does have a PopClip extension that works exactly the same way.) It's not a place to permanently store important notes/docs, but for quick and temporary filing of random bits you come across it can't be beat for speed and simplicity. Not sure what's going on with the 2 different apps, but I'd definitely recommend trying one of them.

I can't get this new version to stop popping its window whenever I access Dashboard or the menubar in full-screen apps. If this is just a preference setting then I'm all ears. Get this fixed and it's a wonderful app.

Why is this app trying to phone home every hour or so when the free version has no online/cloud features???? And when I don't let it phone home it keeps dumping its garbage failure messages into my logs every hour. There are other menu bar note apps out there without these crappy side effects.

If its ad-supported, that’s part of the price of admission. The “Pro” version is affordable enough to get.

Why do developers upgrade their applications to higher OS's as well as make them only available through the MAS, thereby making it impossible for users with older OS's to use the older versions? Developer: You have a nice app and you still have the versions that work on older OS's why not make these versions available via your website or some cloud filesharing site? The latter wouldn't cost you a penny. In addition, these people would then likely get your newest version of the app when they upgrade to a newer OS. Just provide a caveat of no support for the older version anymore.

Perhaps part of the agreement he had to sign with Apple stated that those versions had to be shelved?

I like it for what it is and for its cost. It's an easy to use and easy access notepad for taking quick notes while doing other things. I use a more comprehensive app, Growly Notes, for extended, organized note taking, but just for jotting things down on the fly, this works great. I only give it a "3" for features because it doesn't have a lot, but I don't expect a lot either for this type of note-taking app. Don't understand the complaints about cut & paste not working; both work for me. I am commenting on ver. 1.5

I've wanted a menu bar note app for a long time! I like your app for what it does, but it needs to do the following couple of things before I can drop what I'm currently using: 1. accept copy/paste 2. accept dropping an image to a note (Also, what is the Anchor Tab for?)

It doesn't even open (Mac 10.6.8)!? That is the reason for overall 1/2 star. Only the "Value" = Free, gets 5 stars, but it makes no sense if it is free and one cannot use it at all! Maybe the Developer will fix it during this day so we could use it?!

It opens for me in OS 10.6.8 on a MPB. You do realize that you access it from its menubar icon? It also is open upon login/boot-up -- at least that is the default setting. I find it is handy as a little quick 'n easy access note taker
