OneNote used to be the best software Microsoft ever wrote (and it probably still is very good on the PC) and I used it constantly for years on my Tablet PC [remember those?] but this version doesn't really deserve its name. 100% online storage I don't mind too much but it noticeably lags when switching notebooks and I wonder what happens when you're offline.

It's a nice Free product for taking notes and as easy to use as Angry Birds but you can't drag and drop into the app - which pretty much kills its whole point of existing.

I've used this for years, upgrading to the paid-for version when it was released. This is the best, most solid and easy to use free-form notes application I've used. I used to use OneNote when it was the best thing Microsoft had ever written but I think Growly Notes surpasses it (even more so now OneNote for the Mac is so limited).

Great product

Just replacing Spotlight with Alfred is missing the point. It's all about the extra commands and functions you can run from the same place. A good tip is to turn off the global keyboard shortcut for spotlight and set Alfred to use the exact same shortcut - now you can do everything that Spotlight can do as well as run commands, calculations. Finally, the real magic of Alfred is workflows - once you use these you will realise what Alfred is for

This version makes Java apps legible again on Retina displays (they don't look fuzzy or blurry any more)

Excellent response from the developer :)

This is a nice first version; it has all the most basic functionality. Things I couldn't get working were linking parent tasks and linking a task to two dependent prior tasks - quite key things in the plans I'm used to making.

Looks very good - clean interface, although the toolbar buttons are not the most logical for creating plans (no 'link task' button).

Manual needs a little attention; it refers to some things that look like they were changed in the code after the manual was written (it says to link tasks use the Task->Make Dependent menu option which does not exist; there is a Link Task item though).

Handy for free but If this does become a paid product it will need to be much more polished.

[Version 1.0.5]

I'd love to try this but it asks for administrator access to install - as I can't think of any reason it would need root access I won't let it install as it may be a trojan.

Great product. Prior to this I was forced to use Twonky on a Windows Server (as the Mac version was close to useless). Installed MediaLink, turned on the PS3 and it worked - marvellous.

I would like to see it stream protected media (but I don't know how it would be able to) and a user-configurable menu for the PS3 would be nice.

Well worth the few bucks it costs.

It's worth downloading this just to read the EULA - it's brilliant :D
