compared to Circus Ponies and Curio, this is definitely a worth competitor and a decent OneNote replacement. My main issue with this app, like a previous reviewer has said, is the textbox. Growly Notes textbox is weak compared Ponies' and Curios'. For a notetaking app, the textbox should be bread and butter feature, where it expands regardless of the length of the first line.

I have been using Alfred for the last 6-7 months and I have used Quicksilver and the Google version, Google Search Box. I currently have the Powerpack version. I agree with a lot of the positive comments here so I won't repeat myself but I do admit that it is pretty good at filtering out results and find the exact file or application that you are looking for. In addition, it requires very little setup compared to its competition and has a very pleasing UI. Now here comes the bad part, it is lacking in the ability to search and copy files between different drives or explore external drives. I have been struggling a lot with trying to get Alfred to copy files from mac to a flash drive. QSB and QS seem to have this down so sometimes i out of frustration I just switch over to QSB. So yeah I do bounce between QSB and Alfred. So overall, Alfred is definitely one of the best of its type but if you rely on your app to move files or use it to search and explore your external drives, Alfred hasn't mastered that common feature that its competitors have. And yeah I have contacted them but they have dropped communication with me since their recommended adjustments have not worked.

While this is a strong contender for notetaking software, I believe it lags behind Curio as a true notetaking/brainstorming product. CP Notebook's weakness is the lack of customization for its pages or the ability to create shapes or utensils. Either way you can't go wrong with either Curio or Notebook. Where Notebook uses the notebook as its user experience, Curio uses the whiteboard as its user experience. So it comes down if you like a whiteboard experience (with user customization) or the notebook experience (with lack of customization). Overall after trying Curio and Notebook side by side for the last 8 months, it is hard for me to come back Notebook, especially since Curio has been updating their product on a periodic basis.

I have been bouncing between Curio and Circus Ponies's Notebook for an alternative for MS OneNote for notetaking. While both are reliable alternatives I think the future and the edge goes to Curio. It has been a long time since Notebook been progressing and the development with Curio has been active. Also Curio has A LOT of flexibility to deal with a wide range of notetaking or brainstorming tasks, while CP Notebook does not offer the flexibility to modify the pages/canvas. With Curio, I can create my own custom templates for certain note taking scenarios and create some basic stencils. There is a lot more to mention but the latest additions in Curio 7 make it a major competitor in the note taking/brainstorming software arena.
