Good and getting better


Many note-taking apps are available for the Mac, but FSNotes is the one I use because:

* The sidebar is a useful tool for organizing notes into folders.

* The search-and-create bar is a simple but convenient way to create new and search existing notes--and search is very fast.

* Notes are stored as simple text files, which allows for their easy management and retrieval.

* FSNotes has many small conveniences, such as automatic closing quotes and braces, variable note-list spacing, vertical and horizontal orientations, and tags.

* The developer responds quickly to bug reports and requests for new features.

Many note-takimg apps try to do too much, and, in the process, become slow and cumbersome. For ease of use, speed, and support, FSNotes is an excellent choice.

Very impressed


This program works well on my Mac, runs fast, and is light on system resources.

Nice App, some feature are needed
