Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Beautifully simple. Simply the best note-taking app for Mac.

Take notes, create checklists, record audio, capture moments with Notebook. All your notes are instantly synced across your devices and to the cloud.

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.

Notebook provides different ways to take notes and capture your thoughts.

- Write notes. Start with text, add images, checklists or audio, all in the same note.
- Create and mark checklists to get stuff done with the dedicated checklist note card.
- Record ideas, meetings, and lectures with the audio note card.
- Capture moments using the dedicated photo note card.

We've brought mobile-inspired gestures to the Mac. Navigate Notebook without a single click.

- Hover over notebooks and note cards; two finger swipe for more information, or to lock or delete.
- Pinch in and out to open and close notebooks and note card groups.
- Use two fingers to flick through grouped note cards.

- Choose a notebook cover or create your own by simply dragging an image onto a notebook.
- Color code your notes by choosing from one of our pre-made colors, or by choosing your own.
- Organize note cards into notebooks; group note cards that go together.
- Move or copy note cards between notebooks.

- Synchronize all your notes and notebooks across devices and to the cloud.
- Begin taking a note on one device, add to it from another later.
- Lock individual notes and notebooks with Touch ID or passcodes.
- Search your notes within a notebook or across notebooks.

Touch Bar runs through Notebook, providing contextual navigation options throughout the app.

Simple, yet effective!

Simple. Easy and beautiful user interface! Syncs universally across ALL devices. This app took my organization to a whole new level! I especially enjoy the audio record feature that allows you to take notes while recording. Also, this ties sketching into your mobile devices. I like this app because it is powerful and encompasses a lot of my note making needs.

I ran into a small bug on my iMac where if the app is hidden and you try to use the menubar icon to add a note, it places the app window in a frozen state where I cannot click on anything: All menu items are grayed, as well. I have to quit and reopen for things to start working properly. No matter! I still love the app and will use this as my main note taker. Thank you for such a wonderful tool!

Best Note Taking App!

NoteBook is the perfect app for anyone who is a content creator to keep track of information, thoughts and ideas. I would say nothing comes close to Notebook. I wish there would be one new feature added a way to exprot the audio from the notebooks to use in podcasts or other audio content, there is a work around to do it now but a simple export option would be great! As a podcaster and audio engineer/musician I love using Notebook for ideas but I would really like a export audio option to share music ideas with others when I’m using Notebook for songwriting!

Notebook App Revies

I absolutely love this app, its simple but very complete. I swiched from Evernote and this app is like a breath of fresh air, very colorful and packed with features.
I highly recommend it to everyone.
