Menu-bar notes with Dropbox sync.


Tab Notes is a menu-bar application which keeps your notes tidy and easy to access, and your screen uncluttered. Click on your screen edge, and a note pops up!

  • Click on your screen's edge to take a note.
  • Document file types are conventional RTF (Rich Text) and RTFD (Rich Text with images). Not proprietary format. (This application uses "Comment" property in RTF)
  • RTF documents can be synchronized with iPhone via Dropbox. This means you can view them from any device with Dropbox installed.
  • Documents folder can be any folder in your home folder.
  • Supports versioning. OS X keeps documents' previous versions. (This app does not contain version browser. Please use TextEdit to browse version files.)
  • Customisable with original themes created in Tab Notes Theme Editor

This application is a menu-bar app: its icon does not appear in Dock. You can change preferences from the icon in the menu bar.

Note: This application contains in-app and/or external module purchases.

Seventeen dollars? And ninety-nine cents??

For those complaining about the price, please download the free version, Tab Notes Free. I started using it today. It seems to operate without limits, except for the cloud syncing. I used Sidenotes for a long time, but it stopped working on my iMac a couple years ago. I have been looking for a replacement and tried many note-taking alternatives. None of them matched the speed, ease of use, and the ability to hide and reveal individual SideNotes. Now there is Tab Notes. Tab Notes beats SideNotes in spades. It is beautifully programmed to allow personalization, as well. And do not forget that it is free, as well. Congratulations, you coders! Beautiful job. Highly recommended.
