Review by SunayThePenguin7

Perfect for your everyday needs, note-taking, to-do lists, and creative thoughts. - MiniNote is extremely easy to use, and is conveniently located on the menu bar, so it’s also extremely easy to get to. Not sure what I would do without it! No complaints from me!

Just what I was looking for - I was looking for note app that would sit on my doc station and I could access easily. I keep notes about processes (to-do-steps) for completing something. Thank you for a great little app.

Review by mustang_359

Much better! - I was using the app called Bits for a few months and it went well until I realized the backup files couldn’t open, and just after that, Bits randomly deleted all of my entries. I spent hours every couple of days writing those. I was so mad. Tried several other journal apps with no avail, until I found this one. I’ve only written one entry, and I can tell it’s 100x better!! I love that it stays in the top bar of my screen, and I can toggle it off and on being on top of other windows. And it’s also so easy to backup entries on a flash drive, which is what I was looking for!! I’ll definitely be upgrading to the Pro version ASAP!
