Daily Jotter is a simple notepad that automatically provides a new page every day. It is ideal for storing notes and snippets of information that you want to return to later - just like a paper note book.

NOTE that minimum version of OS X is Lion version 10.7.3.

* A new page every day
* Save as you type
* Print any entry
* Entries list window
* Find text across all entries using the Entries list window
* Print multiple entries
* Export any entry
* Fast start up

As it creates a new page every day, you can be sure that when you open it on a new day, a blank sheet is waiting for you.

Daily Jotter will automatically save your notes as you type, so you never need to worry about losing your work. It has also been designed to be fast, so don't worry about exiting the application; it will start up again quickly when you need it!

You can navigate between days by selecting the "Previous" or "Next" buttons on the toolbar or using the menu items on the Page menu. The "Today" button will return you to the page for today.

===== USER REVIEWS =====

"I used to keep TextEdit open all the time and have a million little text documents always floating around on my desktop unsaved. I wanted an app I could leave open on my desktop as a "scratch pad" to jot down notes, snippets, addresses, phone numbers or anything else I wanted to capture. I wanted a new page daily with the old pages to be kept and searchable. Daily Jotter is very clean and simple. It does no more or less than I needed. You get a page for every day. Edits are auto-saved as you make them. You can search through your history of pages and see which days you actually wrote something. It's simple and it saves me from my own disordered mind." - John Arnold

"I'm really enjoying this app since it's just really simple and quick! You jot down things you want to remember and you can return to it exactly the way it was without having to save anything." - Hanseul Choi

"Turns out the simplest app that I downloaded is the one I use the most." - atldkw5

Version 1.5.1
Review by Jeffery Smith

Exactly what I wanted for an excellent price - I have spent over $100 trying to find a simple app for taking small, random notes on the events of the day, something that isn't a full-fledged word process or a day planner. I already have those. Daily jotter stays at the upper right of my screen, and allows me to put small notes on it throughout the day as a daily record of events (yes, it keeps track of which day it is). Sometimes I just use it briefly as a clipboard for pasting various parts of an article, followed by pasting the various notes in a larger program such as DevonThink. This program is stable, it stays put until I need it, and it is precisely what it aims to be. It is a date-oriented daily record of events, like the right-hand page of a Franklin Day Planner.

Version 1.3.0
Review by Ansk

Sorry I bought this - I suppose it's okay as a note taking app, but for the money—and compared to other, cheaper apps—it's a waste. Basic functions are not there: 1) ability to set default font/text style; 2) searches do not highlight responses, just brings up a list of notes; 3) will not automatically set to new date if app is kept open. Idea behind this is nice, but implementation is lacking right now, imo.

Version 1.5.2
Review by Knot A-mused

Can't Reach Developers - I loved this app when it was accessible, I used it over the years and relied on it. Throughout those uears switching to a new computer etc. the app will no longer allow me to use it becaiuse it says I'm using it on my crashed/trashed computer. I still wanted to use it (out of habit), but know support from developer as my e-mail was returned undelivered.
