VoodooPad 3 is out and sporting a bunch of new features. It now includes tabs (what self-respecting text app these days doesn’t?), faster search, support for huge documents, and (something I’m particularly pleased to see), support for Linkback.
That last thing means you can paste in stuff from OmniGraffle or Nisus Writer (and in future, OmniOutliner - take note, GTD fans) and when updated in its native application, that data with automatically update within VoodooPad. Nice.
Back to the new features, what else is there? Text styles, full screen editing mode, customizable shortcuts in the preferences (another great feature). There’s plenty more.
Gus Mueller has also announced a new Pro version of VoodooPad, which will have additional features including encryption, better metadata (betametadata?) and a built-in webserver. Phreeow.
Next, MyNotes. I downloaded this and had a play with it a week or so ago. If you’ve used Mori before, the layout will be very familiar, but MyNotes is not nearly as powerful a program. It has strong emphasis on the visual presentation of your notes on screen or on paper, neither of them things I tend to pay much attention to myself. I just wanna write. But MyNotes is nicely made and attractively designed; it may well appeal as a simple notes and snippets box.
Finally, Mori itself. I keep coming back to this notepad application, for the simple reason that I love using it. It would fit my style of working very well, if it supported Markdown. Yes, I know I can simply install HumaneText.service and get all my Markdown done that way, but I’d much prefer to avoid the Services menu if at all possible. I spent an hour or so using Mori this morning, but couldn’t bring myself to switch to it completely. I shall return for another try in future, I’m sure of that.
Finally finally: Journler 2.0.1 has just been released by Phil Dow. I’ve not had a chance to try this since version 1.1 or thereabouts, so I shall add that to the todo list…
Have you had any interesting adventures in notebookland recently?
