Love this and went immediately to buy it. If it was $5 I would have bought it instantly without giving a thought. $10 to me is too much for a notes app.
Hi everyone! 👋 Remember sticky notes? They are useful but really messy. So we decided to upgrade them - that’s how SideNotes appeared! And to keep your desktop clean, we moved the notes on the side. SideNotes keeps handy notes organized in folders. Each note may have a color. Text formatting? Out of the box. Not only Markdown but also tasks, pictures, colors and links. Drop them or create a note right from the pasteboard content. Application might stay on top of other apps or be gently hidden until you need it. SideNotes is useful and elegant, handy and intuitive. It organizes your thoughts and speeds up your work. We had lots of ☕️ to make it and we are proud of this app. It will be our honor if you love it, too. 😊
@m_krzywonos , this is great! I love Sidenote already, just started using it today, and already purchased a license. I have an awesome suggestion that would make it even more powerful, and useful. Esp while you build out the iCloud sync part. Right now, in the preferences you can do "Data" and then "Open Data Folder" to see the info. It would be INCREDIBLE if you could change that location. So I could put my Sidenote data in a Dropbox folder, so then it would be accessible on other computers, and backed up as well. The same would apply for people to put that in like Google Drive folders, or other syncing software like that. Please consider this feature, it would be a HUGE addition to the app, allowing users to customize the location of that "Data folder." Thank you!
@bluetidepro Welcome onboard 👋 I think that for now you could try to link data folder with a folder in iCloud / DropBox. We'll think about it. We need to figure out which method of iCloud synchronisation to choose.
Loving it! -- Update: Already bought the license! Great job on this app. I would only have two suggestions: 1) A way to create a note from the folder view... Sometimes you just want to write something real quick, and having to select a folder in order to create a note is a little inconvenient. 2) A way to make the little sidebar button disappear, and operate completely from the keyboard shortcut. Aside from this, great job!
@jorge_dieguez I'm really happy you love it! > A way to create a note from the folder view... Sometimes you just want to write something real quick, and having to select a folder in order to create a note is a little inconvenient. Press ctrl+option+cmd+n (you can change this shortcut in Preferences) > A way to make the little sidebar button disappear, and operate completely from the keyboard shortcut. Two possible solutions: 1. Preferences -> Open Bar: hide when mouse is inactive. 2. Just choose Hot Side instead of Open Bar
Love the idea, but can we get some love for High Sierra?
@nathanrightnour Unfortunately, not 😞 Sorry!
