yeah, i also tried a billion notepads and inotepad wins everytime.
first, it uses a folder structure (how flexible is a flat note list or time wasting tagged libraries, featured in a number of other similar apps?) which shows up in path finder as real folders and rtfd files which are easy to view outside inotepad.
then it features file locking (to prevent accidental edits), multiple databases with encryption and password protection, automatic saving and backup, rich text and image editing, color labels, ftp uploading... so many features in a single windowed app.
ok, like appscout says, the icons could be updated =) but if it bothers me too much, i can update them myself in the package contents.
anyway, it's time to forget the lure of eye candy apps which in turn, lack in flexibility and functionality.
inotepad is simple, fast, lightweight and it's pefect for storing all song lyrics, recipes, well, everything. even your sensitive passwords (why use a dedicated password keeper app with limited fields and organization levels? just because it has pretty icons of a bank, a smile and a plane?).
two things that i could use, missing from inotepad are the ability to resize an image in the notebody and an option to auto encrypt folders when exiting the app (currently i have to set the whole db to be protected which encrypts on exit and asks for my pass on launch, but if i don't encrypt the db and just encrypt a folder on the left pane, if i unprotect it during a session so i can read the contents, i have to remember to protect it again before exiting inotepad).
