Good for keeping a note-stream

I realized the other day that I needed a place to instantly jot down a note, and then later be able to view the chronological stream of notes I produced. MiniNote fills that need, and I liked it enough to buy the Pro version.

It’s a good app, but I’m a _little_ disappointed in the Pro feature set:
* Font selection is limited to eight fonts that they chose. Some are boring (Arial) and some unreadable (Noteworthy). I have a lot of fonts and would like to be able to choose any font I want.
* The sync is a proprietary system, not iCloud. I don’t want to trust my notes (which might end up including passwords, credit card numbers, personal info) to a server I know nothing about that might be easily hackable. I at least have a reasonable amount of faith in Apple’s security practices.

That being said, the app is well worth the $5!

All day and every day!

I have currently 251 “notes.” There are many things that I use a references that I need on multiple devices. The dropdown feature is the clincher, as it is like having Apple Notes but much, much quicker. I have had it for a couple of years now, and of the few times I needed support, it was prompt and effective. I am eager for a cooler look to it, but don’t feel it needs any feature increases. KISS you know.

My favorite

It is my favorite notes app, beyond any doubt. I love it for two indispensable features that distinguish it from other notes apps.
1. An Option to quickly summon the app or create new note via keyboard shortcuts no matter in which other app you do work currently.
2. An Option to attach the current note on the display and use it as a reference while working on another app, i.e., Word, Excel, etc.
