What’s new in version 1.1.6

Version 1.1.6:
  • Featured Addition: Import any file types into NoteAway (by dragging onto the menubar or Dock icons, dragging into the notes list, using the OS X Service, or using the normal import sheet). NoteAway will now display the contents of imported Word, OpenOffice, HTML, and WebArchive files. Importing other file types, such as images (or anything else), will create a new note with the filename as the first line of the note and add the file as an attachment below.
  • Added option in the Format menu to Remove Note Attachments with shortcut "Control+Command+X" and a toggle to suppress the warning before in the Advanced Preferences.
  • Added options in the Advanced Preferences to toggle tool tips in the notes list, and toggle the warning before deleting notes.
  • Improved choosing the proper iCloud library location depending on which version of OS X is being used. If notes exist in multiple internal iCloud locations, the libraries will be merged to the appropriate iCloud location.
  • Improved loading note list by including attachment names within internal note previews. This should make scrolling smoother, but you may notice a slight lag when scrolling the note list for the first time after upgrading while internal previews are updated.
  • Tweaked various parts of the interface to fit in better on OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
  • Fixed a bug where NoteAway would not be able to access to Custom Library Locations on OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
  • Fixed a bug where color pickers in Formatting Bar on OS X 10.10 Yosemite would not work. But they're still a bit buggy, you'll have to select the color twice. I'm very sorry about this and I'll continue to try to find a solution in the future.
  • Various bug fixes and improvements throughout.

The app is very nice, and well thought-out. But a notes app without an iOS counterpart is rather pointless.

Is NoteAway free and NoteAway Pro "just $4.99"? Or is NoteAway $4.99 and NoteAway Pro an additional $4.99?
