Nice to see an update to Notae, bringing a bunch of welcome new features to this notes- and snippets-storage app. It now supports web archives and PDFs, better tag navigation, and a Quick Note feature. In this new form, it competes more directly with Yojimbo. By way of a super-quick test, I
important imported (ahem) all my Yojimbo notes into Notae 2 and did some messing around; Notae’s search is noticeably faster, in my opinion.
There’s also an update for SubEthaEdit, which is pretty much all about tabs. For those of you who’ve been crying out for more tabs everywhere you look, this is good news indeed. Funny; for years I craved more tabs in all the apps that didn’t have them, but when they appeared (in editors, mail clients and the like) I found I never used them. TextMate remains a strictly one-document-per-windows experience for me. Anyone else out there not fussed about tabbiness?
Finally, and spotted via FreeMacWare.com, there’s PagePacker, a desktop app that produces a neat design-your-own fold-up Hipster PDA that you can clip into your new shiny orange iPod shuffle. Remind me: how did we survive before iPods?
