There is a bug in this app. I bought my upgrade, and have been trying to use it all weekend, but the inspector window does not appear. I only get a slender bar that says "inspector," but no control or anything underneath. I've been waiting for a response from support since Friday (admittedly, its a long weekend here in the states). I'll post when and if they help me solve this.

I thought just clicking the inspector button would open the panel, but it doesn't. You are, of course, correct, Raro. Activating it from the Window menu got it to work. Thank you.

I started a reply to Dolphinboy2u, but accidentally sent it off before I was finished. As I started to say, Outline 2.0 does what it claims to do, which is to allow you to open and edit OneNote notes, but it does not have half the power of OneNote. For instance, you can't create a table, there's no good way to capture information from outside the app, tags are limited to the ones bundled with the app, to name a few things. So don't get this expecting OneNote for Mac. But if you use OneNote heavily and want to be able to view and edit the text in your OneNote files, this app will do the trick.

I noticed on the AppStore a lot of negative reviews for Bento, due mostly to the abandonment of support for Apple's apps like Contacts and iPhoto. While I can certainly understand that anger from people who relied upon Bento as a interface with those apps, I want to stress that Bento is so much more than that. It is a very handy, easy to use database. I keep all kinds of structured data in it, and am able to easily sync that data among my MacBook, iPad Mini and iPod Touch. I've found it very stable and reliable. It may be the single most useful app I have for cross-device data sharing.

I wanted to update my review from a couple of years ago. I continue to use PersonalBrain on my office PC and on my MacBook. Using WebBrain, I can keep "Brains" on both computers in sync. Beyond this, PersonalBrain is simply fun to use. It's one of the few applications I've found that inspires me. I think of it as a GPS system for my information.

I've been using SandVox for about three years to manage a web site for a nonprofit organization I volunteer for. I have found the application to be quite efficient at this task. Yes, it has its limits -- although the Karelia keeps reducing these with a steady stream of improvements. SandVox makes it easy to combine many types of web elements, from various media, blog-style posts and pages and more. It also makes it fast and efficient, which is important for the limited amount of time I can devote to this project. I am quite satisfied.

Because I'm a nut for any type of outliner, I bought this through the AppStore. Disappointing. It's true that it is pretty easy to hammer out an outline hierarchy, but after that things fall apart. There is no way to export your outline that I can see (other than cut and paste). You can't change the labeling style. You can't apply type styles by level. It has an unusual method for managing font styles, which I had difficulty figuring out. After playing with the styles a bit, I ended up with garbled looking text. Select Help from the menu and the dialog box says it all: "Help isn't available for Scribe." Maybe this app will evolve, but don't waste your money on it now.

Just a note to some people looking for the outlining application called Neo -- this is not it. Check the AppStore for Neo.

Love Bento. I truly don't understand all the negativity about this fine application. It's inexpensive, works well. Gets the job done. I've never lost any data in the three years I've used it. Wish there was an equally easy-to-use and functional version for Windows.

I've tried Panorama Sheets. It's a nice application, but it lays out like a spreadsheet, so if your data doesn't fit a spreadsheet layout -- i.e. you need a note box for large amounts of text, or you have many fields -- it isn't nearly as useful as Bento.

First of all, version 5.9 is much more than a maintenance fix and polishing, as it states under "What's New."

Tinderbox is one of the more inspired programs you can use for managing your notes and information on a Mac. It's true that to harness all its power takes a steep learning curve, but you can get a great deal of use from Tinderbox using its most basic features. It's my go-to application when I have a problem that needs solving or if I have to make sense of a tangle of data.

I'm not sure where all the negativity about Bento comes from. It's a nice database manager at a pretty reasonable price. It's easy to set up forms and fields. I'd always been disappointed that it couldn't print labels, but they've added that in this release. If you need a structured database manager, Bento is a application you should try.
