Mobile apps and a Web Clipper are also available.

This is a great Evernote replacement, now that Evernote's pricing system is getting increasingly expensive. It's free and, especially now with version 2, it does everything I want in a Notebook application. The only reason I'm docking it half a star is because the web clipper is currently Chrome only. But for $90 a year vs free, I'll take free.

The question is: how can this be free… the answer could help me to try this app… or not.

From their website (linked to above):

>NOTEBOOK IS 100% FREE.

No catch. No advertisements either.

And no, we're not selling or viewing your data. Notebook is subsidized by our ever-expanding, broad suite of business applications, which isn't a new thing for us. Zoho has been offering productivity applications for free for over a decade. Notebook is no different. You can learn more about all the things we do at zoho.com.

Also, the new version (3.2) adds encryption:

"Notebook now offers encryption at rest for all your notes and content. We've always made privacy a priority-it's why we'll never do ads-and believe your data belongs to you. Now you are the only person who can see your notes and data. Period."

I'm not affiliated with the company in any way, but I am a happy user.

Thanks for telling us that, although MacUpdate also tells us that up at the top of the page. Have you tried the app? Any thoughts on its functionality? To me 81MB does not seem excessive for an app with this much functionality, it launches pretty much instantly on my computer.

Hi Gazman, I'm using iNotepad. It's excellent. A little problem with it, a bit slowly to start and to close. Takes about 4 seconds. I used Bear, but got tired of markdown. I have MiniNote Pro, but there is no font adjustment. I'll try Notebook.

Very good, sympathetic app. For me Evernote, OneNote etc. have too many bells and whistles, while I find SimpleNote, my notation app until now, just a bit too basic. Zoho's Notebook falls nicely in between, providing me with a great companion for syncing several kinds of data between my Mac and my Android. Big thank you to the developers for the app, the playful design and for making it free.

Now, with Version 3 and the awesome Safari web-clipper, Notebook has replaced Evernote, Bear and Pocket. For a free app, this is amazing. Unlike other competitors which have a crippled free version and a 'pro' subscription version, with Notebook the free version is the pro version.
