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.

Well, the idea is nice but it seems AppleScript doesn't work as intended. I have this script that returns the URL in the front most window of Brave Browser: tell application id "com.brave.Browser" return the URL of the active tab of the front window end tell The result is a proper URL (tested in script editor), but in Ghostnote it won't show up. What I also don't like is that there is no info about the developer, nor any contact info AND only support via discuss. Not very professional. Another thing that really annoys me is: whenever I have Safari open and switch an app, the debugger window comes up all the time with the title "Ghostnote2 - JSContext". 5 stars for the idea, half star for the implementation, gives 2.5 stars - which actually is better than the overall rating here ;-)

Hi Rochade,

How are you adding the script? This any any other script which applescript accept should work.

Also debugger window?

Please write us at support@ghostnoteapp.com and we will figure out what is going on.

Unfortunately for me, Apple Mail is not currently included in software for which you can add a note. A recent alternative might be Hook (https://hookproductivity.com)?

Hi Filou54, Ghostnote is scriptable via AppleScript. So you should be able to add it in.

so, it's maybe a very nice idea for a future update of Ghosnote :-)
For me it's a must to buy it...
(and after testing a little, I prefer the interface of Ghosnote to that of Hooks)

DON'T BUY THIS APP!!!!!! 1. The Developer takes toooooooooooooooo much time to fix their app, and until 2018/11/12, they cannot release a version which suits High Sierra! Apple has already released "Mojave," and this app? FUNNY! --- The following information is from their official website (2018/11/12): We do not yet support High Sierra. Working on a major overhaul of Ghostnote. --- 2. Wow! This developer released Ghosnote 2.0 RECENTLY. Honestly, I cannot see any big change. 2.0? Funny! Should I pay it again? I bought a version 1.x, and they totally gave up their app on High Sierra. Should I trust them again? Waste My Money!!! Most important of all, if you guys want your notes (data) alive, KEEP AWAY THIS APP. Thanks!

Hi Modi,

The primary update is that we made the engine less affected by version updated from Apple. This should make it easier for us to update.

Hope you will change your mind in the future. We are still going to be here :)

Hi YHC,

That it makes it easier to update means fewer issues with future OS versions which means user won't have to wait for new versions as long as they used to.

The other new features are improved notes editor with lots of new formatting.

We had a choice between not making a new version at all or make one but charge. As I said hope you will change your mind. Happy to give you your money back if you don't feel like it lives up to your expectations.

I saw your post, so I sent an email on 2019/03/09, and you didn't reply to me until now. That's why I must keep away this app. Especially this app's function is Taking Notes! They are all my data!
