Metanota is a beautiful OSX client and editor for creating and managing notes using well known cloud based services like SimpleNote and Evernote or simply local notes on your Mac.

Other note-taking cloud providers will be added constantly.

The Pro version is advertising free and all options are activated by default.

# All functions are easy to see and access

The user interface is carefully streamlined, no unnecessary elements are left floating around.
Metanota’s goal is to avoid interfering between you and your work.

# Markdown highlighting

Nearly all Markdown specs are correctly displayed and sync'ed to the supported online providers. And it really looks beautifull in the note editor.

# Intelligent auto-formatting (if you don't like Markdown)

The note editor automatically formats the first line of a note as header and shows lists as, well, lists.
Just put a dash (-) and space in front of a paragraph and the correct indentation is added at once.
Or, if you like plain and simple text, you can selectively turn off each feature.

# In sync with your SImplenote and/or Evernote account(s)

All notes and tags, even deleted notes, are kept perfectly synchronized
But you can work offline as long as you want.

# Fully manage Simplenote tags

Tags are presented as folders, making easy to neatly organize your content.
Local folders can be created, renamed or deleted, every change being promptly replicated to your SimpleNote account.
And, last but not least, Metanota is maybe the only option we have to actually rename a Simplenote tag.

A network connection is required to sync with Simplenote or Evernote accounts.

Just try it !

Ratings and Reviews



By far the best notes app for the Mac. Sync with Simplenote works great. I love the tag/folder list in the sidebar and overall simple design. The only thing missing that would make it even better is Dropbox/text file support.

Elegant, Simple, Full Featured


This is EXACTLY what I was looking for! It's a simple-to-use, but full featured companion to the Simplenote apps for the iPhone and iPad.

A suggestion to the developer: Please add the ability to add or remove columns from the note list. If technically possible, I'd like to add another column that lists the most recent date each note was modified so I can sort on that too.
