What’s new in version 1.9.6

Updated on Dec 08 2016

Version 1.9.6:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.10 or later.

  • GhostNotes Browser - You asked for it, we finally delivered. The ability to view all your notes from one central view. We call it the Ghostnote Browser and it makes managing your notes too much easier. You can browse your notes using the keyboard, search and edit, all from one single view.
  • Classic Notes - Contextual notes are great but sometimes you just want to jot down some notes for your free form thinking. So we created a more classic notes taking app as part of Ghostnotes. It works like most other notes apps do.
  • Classic Tasks - Last but not least of the major new features we created a separate Todo app. It’s very fast to use and everything can be controlled from the keyboard. We are very exited about this app and we expect to do iCloud support and create a web version at some point in the future.
  • Script browser
  • More short cuts
  • Pop-up when note present mode
  • Improved speed

I understand this is not an expensive program compared with other apps, but there is no upgrade price. You have to repurchase it. When apps move to the App Store this makes sense as Apple does not support upgrades, but it would have been a nice gesture to the original supporters.

DON'T BUY THIS APP!!! The Developer takes toooooooooooooooo much time to fix their app, and until now, they cannot release a version which suits High Sierra! Apple has already release "Mojave," and this app? FUNNY! --- The following information is from their official website: We do not yet support High Sierra. Working on a major overhaul of Ghostnote. --- Waste My Money! If you guys want your notes alive, KEEP AWAY THIS APP. Thanks!

In case you happen to have more than 1 computer and also need to make fresh installations from time to time, it's likely to happen that you get the following message when you enter your purchased license code: " Sorry - License Code has already been utilized." And if you try to contact the developer you seem like to get no support or reply. Useless ...

It's perfect!!!! Great way of keeping tabs on things, and worth every $! I've found GhostNote to be working even better (not that i had any complaints before) since it had its last update. Being able to attach notes to files is perfect for keeping track of what you need to do and where things are. 5*!

Love it, and hoping it keeps evolving. I really want to be able to create multiple notes per context, and also subcontexts. For instance, a note for an app, with other notes per document opened in the app. PS, Ghostnote works with Firefox URL's too, despite the fact that it isn't listed above as I write this.

First: What happened to the GhostNote Suite Installer - it included GhostNote 1.9.4, GhostNote Browser 1.0.2, and GhostNote Finder Extension 1.1. Is there an update? Is there somewhere to find it? Second: Why is the version called 1.9.6 here, and 19.6 on the developers December update notes?

This app looked very promising until I realised that if you attach a note and then move the file, folder or whatever, the link to the note gets lost ! Huge omission and complete deal-breaker for me. "We are working on a solution that allow you to move files or folders around without it breaking the link" - right, but it shouldn't have been released until you figured that one out imho

Hark to the developer. How's he new iteration of Ghostnote coming along? Can't wait to get ahold of it! As a wise web pundit once said: "People love the phrase, "Under Construction." But they do need to see some dust...."

I want to love this app, but it falls a little short for me. For this to be the ultimate note-taking app, I would need it to have multiple, separate notes attached to a certain application, not the all-in-one-window notes that's there now. And a possible way to see all the notes by title in a master index, organized by app. Is this something that could be implemented into a future version?

really great and useful product. not able to get RTF export working yet but developer is responsive and working on it. 4.5 stars for now, since this was instantly an app that I couldn't live without, and the developer seems to work hard at resolving any problems. I would give it 10 stars if it could sync between computers for files that are in the cloud and, therefore, synced to all computers. I'd give it 100 stars if it could also sync cloud file notes with an iOS version!!!

Cannot rate it as after purchasing with the MacUpdate bundle the serial is not present on my purchased page (it says, will be updated within 24 hours) nor got any information from the developer :-(

Rather odd, I purchased Ghostnote 1.4.3 in the Fall MacUpdate Bundle, however what is included in the download is version 1.4.6 and not compatible with my Mac system. It also appears that perhaps a version 1.4.3 never existed ... well, at least there appears no link to previous versions at the developers website... can't really review it So I will just add 2.5 stars for not having archived versions, and the fact that all navigational links go to Twitter :-(

Hi Ghostnote, looks like a very useful add-on to a workflow. But loosing notes by changing names of files, folders websites etc. is not what I need :) Will you be able to fix that? If so, buying will be a no-brainer for me. Thank you, Max

I just downloaded v1.4.6 hoping it will work on my El Capitan, but disappointed... Actually, I bought Ghostnote a few months ago. However, just after buying it, because of SSL error during the activation process, I could not use Ghostnote since the trial period is over even though I have a license. Anyway, when I will be able to activate the Ghostnote on El Cap?
