It's the Stickies-like app you have been waiting for all this time…

Place notes in notebooks and further organize them with categories. Resize, dock, and collapse notes to keep them out of your way but still in plain sight. Even use your favorite color to add some style to your notes. Why write down notes when you can have JotNow store, search, and organize them?

Organize your thoughts and find them just as fast. Move between notes just as easy as you create them. Find and display notes with a click of a mouse or the press of a key. So much effort has been put on functionality and simplicity you will wonder how you ever used your computer without JotNow installed.

Version 1.7.2
Review by Jester831

A developers dream notepad - A lot of times, it's just not enough to open your ide in split mode. Having JotNotes around lets me create transparent floating notes that aid as a reference as I code without obstructing window real estate or requiring any tabbing through applications to stack windows. It is somewhat pesky that there aren't any pre-defined color profiles, but you're still able to recolor the notes. Though, it's still a cake walk to setup the colors.

My favorite Note Taking App - This nifty app is like finding water in the desert. It has the best of all 'writing app' worlds, tags, colors, window resize, etc etc. This app can only get better and better and I'm really excited to see the next version. Well done!

Version 1.8.2
Review by Olafdefleur

One of the best - I'm a 'been there done that' when it comes to note-taking apps, ranging from Evernote to Notes to 'you name it' - the difference in JotNow (for me), is that I don't have to switch into 'think / structure' mode while using it. JotNow is also of few note-taking apps that can 'stay out of the way' while using it. I'd love to see the next update and would gladly pay/contribute to its development.
