LittleSecrets is the little gem I've been searching for for years. I kept all of my website & email passwords, credit cards, software licenses, etc. in an amazing app called NotePad Deluxe. However it hasn't been updated since 2005 so I knew I needed to start looking for a replacement. Unfortunately all of the "Password" applications trotted out 'features' that I really didn't like. Who wants the program to dictate what fields I have to fill in? Just give me a secure, clean space to type out the information that's relevant and let me organize it into groups of my choosing. Those didn't seem like lofty software search goals but I looked everywhere and tried dozens of apps without one measuring up. I gave up for quite a while but NotePad Deluxe was the last of my PowerPC applications and with Mac OS 10.7 Lion's release right around the corner I decided to start looking again. Then today I found LittleSecrets. I just want to say: Thank You!! I love it - the simple, clean design and the perfect options in it's preferences that make it ideal for keeping all of my important information safe but easily accessible at a moments notice. It is a joy to use and, for me, a happy ending to a long search.

I have been using NotePad Deluxe to keep track of my credit cards, bank accounts, email passwords, software licenses, etc. etc. for MANY years. It's simple and doesn't require that I fill in a bunch of fields that are often not relevant. It's flexible and reliable. It's also old ... REALLY old. The fact that it still works I use it on an almost daily basis is a testament to how well it was originally designed & coded. But seriously, we're talking 2005 since it's been updated old -- which means its a PowerPC app that depends on the Rosetta translation layer of the Mac OS in order to still function. Unfortunately Lion (OS 10.7) is about to roar onto the scene making Rosetta and all PowerPC apps a topic for the history books.
I say all this not simply to mourn the loss of a great piece of software but to share my discovery (after a VERY long search ... years, really because I knew this day was coming eventually) of an excellent replacement: LittleSecrets. I'm not sure how I was unable to find this little gem until now since the developer released it in 2001. And he still personally uses it each day so it has remained up-to-date. In fact he just released an update that ensures the app is Lion compatible!! I encourage anyone who finds themselves in the market for an Intel-native, password-protected notepad that feels like the mirror twin of NotePad Deluxe to try out LittleSecrets.

Love this app for when I need to record a screencast at work. Unfortunately under Snow Leopard it just turns the background to black instead of using your selected background image. It could be worse, I guess ... 10.6 could have killed the app all together.

D'oh ... this must have been fixed with the 10.6.1 update ... it's working just fine now. Sorry for the stupid post and the false alarm.

Donate for this app. It's so worth it!

I was drafted into the AV position at my local church 'cause I'm a geek. Originally I was stuck with SundayPlus on a PC. Finally switched to a Mac & ProPresenter. I am a VERY happy camper now! The program is simple to use but gives us the power to have the text display & background display controlled separately. It works great for our song service, announcements, & video clips.
Not to mention the fact that it keeps getting better - for free! They added the DVD clip feature so we don't have to switch over to our old DVD/VCR input anymore. And version 3.3 now adds Live Video which I will be excited to test out.
One of the primary reasons in switching to Mac & ProPresenter was to make it easier for 'non-geek' volunteers to run the AV system for services. Trying to teach someone on SundayPlus did not go well for us. (At one point we bought but didn't even attempt to teach MediaShout.) ProPresenter has the features we need on the best OS around. It is used in conjunction with Keynote (for sermon presentations) & WireTap Studio (to record sermons live as podcasts for our website). All apps play nicely together on a Core 2 Duo Intel iMac running OS 10.5.2. With ProPresenter I can stop worrying about the technical stuff and start getting creative. That's what Mac software is all about.
