SpiralBound Pro is a note utility modeled after a spiral-bound notepad with organizing, security, and calculator features.

--Features over and above the original SpiralBound include--
•Multiple Notepads- start as many notepads as you like
•Notepad Sorter- this alternate view allows you to read and edit your notes in a single window, search by filtering results, or reorganize by drag-and-drop
•To Do Lists- these pages let you check off items as they are completed
•Email Capability- email the contents of any page as plain text or as an attachment
•More Style- more colors and more interface options to make it just your own

Useful: Flip pages, tear them out, and return them to the notepad. Reorder as desired. A seamlessly integrated calculator will solve a mathematical expression typed into any page. Drag pictures or sound clips into any page. Make any word a hyperlink.

There When You Want It: Set any window to float above all open applications, or view every page at once.
And Not When You Don’t: Compact (shade) any window, hide any notepad entirely, or view exclusively from the Notepad Sorter.

Password Secure: Any page can be rendered unreadable when the program is in the background, has been inactive for a period of time, or whenever the “lock” is clicked. You may choose to require a password to unlock pages, or not.

Searchable: Pages are searchable by title or content, and an unobtrusive pull-down menu on the notepad allows for quick navigation.

Easy-to-Use: This program aims to be as intuitive as possible. Also, SpiralBound Pro can import your Stickies or SpiralBound data automatically.

A well thought out app


This is a great little program. All your stickies can be imported into a single notebook and then arranged however you want to organize them. I really like the fact that you can have notes and/or checklists as your pages. It seems that most of the other apps do one or the other, but not both and the ones that do both are not easy to use. I've been searching for this feature in a simple app for quite awhile. It is really user-friendly and can be accessed quickly. The fact that you can tear out a single page is so handy for leaving notes for others or have it be an important "pay attention" reminder. There is a very nice selection of fonts, and colors for fonts can be customized. I'm hoping for more updates as this app is expensive. I would like the ability to make custom colors for the notepads as the colors that are available are quite limited and not that great. I would also like to see this app across the various mobile devices like iPhone, iPad, etc. with syncing. That would be fantastic ! It would get 5 stars if those 2 things happened. I think with a few little changes, I could enthusiastically recommend this app to everyone. As I have only had the app for 2 days, I'm sure I will find other things it will do. Nice going developers .... I eagerly await an update.

Very nice


I really like this program and have basically stopped using stickies alltogether. This program is like stickies, but extend so that now each sticky belongs to and can be stack in a notebook (hence spiralBound). You can have several notebooks as well. I have one for programming projects, real world errands to do and one where I keep passwords. Re: passwords, this program has a nice security feature which obscures text on a given sticky if you want it too. Another nice feature is build in checklists. There are some other features which I haven't really explored as well. Overall this program seems like an intelligent upgrade from the standard stickies program. Aloha

Best Sticky Note Option, IMO


I was about to give up for good when I finally found this app. I Have been looking everywhere for a rather simple sticky note app that allowed me to use check boxes, among other things. It's amazing how difficult this is. To find one that does what you need, looks decent doing it, and is somewhat stable. I think I am set for awhile with SpiralBound.

I won't go on and on, but I want to point out a couple of things.

1) I found this app on the devs website and noticed that it had not been updated since January 2011. I wrote to him to ask him the status because $10 is a lot to spend on an app that may already be broken with Lion and may not be fixed. He was great. He responded within 12 hours, he apologized that he had not been keeping up his website, he told me that the most recent version was available in the App Store (September 2011), and he assured me that he is still working on the app and I could be confident in my purchase. I immediately dropped the $9.99 and installed it.

2) One thing the picture here do not show is that you can change the look of the notebook so that the spiral binding is not showing. This is probably huge for some people - particularly some of us Mac people - who may dwell on individual design issues like that. Some people will like the binding, while others will hate it. I would like to see the dev put up a picture of the notebooks without the binding. It may sound silly, but I think it would earn more sales. FWIW, the non-bound notebooks look great!

Anyways, I love the idea behind these notebooks and am having fun integrating them. They offer some advanced and fairly unique features without going overboard and bloated. You might consider finding the devs website and downloading the demo of the app. Even then, given that the App Store version is the most current, I would not put too much weight on the early website version, but it might give you an idea. If it was 4.99 instead of 9.99 I wouldn't even bring it up.

I'd say, if you are looking for this kind of app - a good sticky note app with some cool organizational/notebook functionality among other things - and you can afford it, go for it.
