The simple, intimate joy of Notebook comes from using the app. We've been meticulous in our design, paying attention to every detail. Notebook is 100% free and ad-free. Mobile apps and a Web Clipper for Chrome are also available.

- Pinch in and out to open and close notebooks and note card groups.
- Use two fingers to flick through grouped note cards.

Good for my note taking needs

This app is a pleasant surprise for two main reasons. It offers multiple, customizable notebooks and its free.

For simple note taking it is flexible: it has text, voice, list, photo, and attachment note types. Only the ios version has the draw note type though you can view it on the Mac version.
Other nice features:
• customizable notebook covers
• synching with iOS version ( sometimes slow)
• web capture on Mac through a Safari extension (page capture, link, screenshot, text notes, ability to drag specific images to a note) is very nice, though page capture did not load all the images
• easily move notes between notebooks
• versioning of notes

Feature request:
• larger notebook cover view
• group notebooks
• link notes
• more fonts
• Mac option to grid view notes within notebook as on ios version
• faster syncing

Very nice app. I look forward to the updates!

Needs Work

Syncing can be iffy and I wish they’d use iCloud instead of their own account. That makes me think since this is free they are trying to sell my email/information to a third party. Additionally, you cannot add more than 5 images to a photo card, which is quite odd. Hopefully the creators will work on these and other issues people have brought up. It’s a good start.

Great app

Very nice, what I was looking for.
