The easiest and most beautiful note taking app. It looks like the small brother of Ulysses III. But there are some important features missing for me:

- Insert images in the text (not only as attachments)
- let me choose a folder where I want to store my documents (e.g. to sync it with other services)
- unlimited levels to organize the notes
- more export formats (especially .md!)

Add those and Noted is the best note taking app on the app store! - and will receive the missing half star ;-)

I like the app very much. I cannot wait for an iOS version. It is very clean and easy to use. I tried so much note taking apps in the last days because I don't want to use the Apple app anymore. This one is the only one that got my attention.
One the one side you have those plain text note apps which are ugly as hell, on the other side you have Evernote which is just cluttered with options and buttons. I prefer clean UIs like the one Noted has to offer.
I would like to see some audio recording features in the future, syncing with Apple's notes.app and Spotlight integration.

It looks like a nice first effort. The UI is pretty reminiscent of "Things." That's probably not a coincidence ;-)

In playing with it for a bit, though, there are few showstoppers for me, for now:

1) There's no import capability. I have lots of notes in Evernote or as plain text, and I don't want to manually copy and paste them over.

2) More important, there's very little EXPORT capability. You can export as HTML, or export as HTML to the clipboard. Or you can share to email, which works well for me as plain text which is what I use in Mail.

3) No Spotlight integration so I can't find notes in Noted from Spotlight.

4) No iOS version (which the authors say is on the way), so this may get resolved soon enough.

5) In-app search is a bit wonky for me. it looks like it's not global, and only searches in the notebook you're currently in. This would be a challenge for me.

So I like the UI, and there's some promise, but it has a ways to go yet before it can be workable to me. It may not be targeted for my use. I do like the notebook conventions and a lot of the UI; I'll keep checking in and maybe by 1.5 or 2.0 it'll have what I specifically might want.

Very promising. Nice clean interface, better than Apple's "Notes." If developers implement the iCloud synching with Notes on iOS, I would definitely buy this.

I tried Noted and reviewed it on MakeTechEasier. It's a great app and I love the simplicity. I had no issues. I'm not familiar with Markdown, so that doesn't come in handy for me - but it's great for those that do use Markdown. I give it 4.5 stars because I prefer Evernote and need something more powerful like that, but I think Noted is great for less tech-savvy users

Neat, but how exactly to enable Markdown? I mean I can use the Markdown tags and I think it changes the text as expected, but I can still see the tags.

For example "## Section 1" will increase the weight and font of the text, but it does not remove "##" from the text.

Hi S/ash, thanks for your comment.
There is a feature in our to-do list, which allows you to preview and export your markdown notes into HTML document. I guess that is what you need.

It's 10.8 only? Huh?

I'm disappointed. I was curious to see if this is anything like iNotePad.

Hi Appscout. Thanks for your comments.
We are really sorry about that. After repeated testing, we found there are some issues can not be perfectly fixed on 10.7. In order to make Noted get a fully good user experience and take advantage of Mountain Lion. It is only support 10.8 or later in this stage.

AD,

Thanx for replying.

I looked on your site, and your app has some good features.

However, I am concerned that this is a 'public beta'. What does that mean?

BlankDesk (developer) replied on 09 Oct 2012
Appscout, Thanks for replying.

Public beta means Noted is currently in an early beta version. There may be bugs, crashes and incomplete features.

I guess you are concerned about bugs or crashes, right? Please don't worry, according to the feedbacks and crash logs, Noted works just fine, no crash so far. But if you run into issues, send us bug and crash reports will help me out a lot.

If I misunderstand your meaning, please let me know.

Actually, what I mean is...

Does "Public beta" mean that 'Noted', will eventually be a shareware or commercial app?

We plan to charge for the app in the app store once we hit version 1.0. Until then, you get to use our app for free.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
