  • Notational Velocity

    Free Mac Website

    Notational Velocity is a mouseless application for storing and retrieving notes.

    With Notational Velocity, searching for notes is not a separate action; rather, it is the primary interface. Searching encompasses all notes content and occurs instantly with each key pressed.

    All content created with Notational Velocity is compressed and encrypted (enabled optionally) before it is recorded to disk. Additionally, there is no manual "saving"; all modifications take effect immediately.

    Notational Velocity's window was designed for keyboard input above all else, and thus has no buttons.

    You can synchronize your notes with Simplenote, or via files in Dropbox with PlainText, Elements, iA Writer, and other iOS apps.

  • Zim

    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Website

    Zim brings the concept of a wiki to your desktop. Store information, link pages and edit with WYSISYG markup or directly typing some lightweight markup syntax and see it previewed as-you-type. Creating a new page is easy by either clicking on the "Create new note" button, by linking to a non-existing page or by writing a CamelCase name in any note. Pages are stored in a folder structure, like in an outliner, in plain text format with lightweight markup, and can have attachments (stored along the notes).

    This tool can be used to keep track of TODO lists or ideas, to take notes during a meeting, to draft any other kind of text (blog entries, important mails, etc.) or to write long texts like lab research notebooks thank's to the headers structure and the table of content navigation.

    Zim handles several types of formatting markup, like headings, bullet lists, checkbox, tables and of course bold, italic and highlighted. This markup is saved as a hybrid wiki/markdown text so you can easily edit it with other editors. Because of the autosave feature you can switch between pages and follow links or even close the software anytime while editing without worries. The interface also provides multi-document tabs, and it remembers the cursor position in all notes for quick resuming in your note taking endeavors.

    Standard Notes is a simple and private notes app. It allows you to write and sync your notes across all your devices, including your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and web browser.

    Private means your notes are end-to-end encrypted, so only you can read your notes. Even we can't read the contents of your notes.

    Simple means it does one job and does it well. Standard Notes is a safe and lasting place for your life's work. Our focus is making it easy to write notes wherever you are and syncing them with encryption to all your devices.

    Standard Notes comes free with:
    • Seamless sync across all your devices, with easy to use applications on iPhone, iPad, Mac, web browsers, and other platforms.
    • Offline access, so you can access your downloaded notes even without a connection.
    • No limit on number of devices.
    • No limit on number of notes.
    • Passcode lock protection, along with Touch ID and Face ID protection.
    • A tagging system to organize your notes (like #work, #ideas, #passwords, #crypto).
    • The ability to pin, lock, protect, and move notes to trash, which allows you to recover deleted notes until the trash is emptied.

    We made Standard Notes simple because longevity is important to us. We want to make sure we're here, protecting your notes, for the next hundred years. You shouldn't have to find a new notes app every year.

    To sustain our development, we offer an optional paid program called Standard Notes Extended. Extended gives you access to powerful tools including:
    • Productivity editors
    • Beautiful themes
    • Powerful cloud tools including daily backups

    You can learn more about Extended at standardnotes.org/extended.
