Mac menu bar app that @torrez really needed to take notes

#4 Product of the DaySeptember 19, 2017

Tyke is a tiny app that lives in your Mac menu bar. Its your scratch piece of paper when you need to write something down.

Around the web


  • Pros: 



    Nothing special. Unclutter works and does more than tyke do with just a gesture.

    unclutter app is note taking, clipboard and project folders features at the same interface. It's easy, it's fast, flawless and yet not a menu bar app in case you dont want more menu bar icons (bartender to handle that)

    Simple and effective.


    None...its great!

    Love the simplicity of this little note app! Sometimes you just want to jot something down without opening a text editor.

    Would love to see a keyboard shortcut for even quicker notes without leaving the keyboard.

I’m not aware of a thing that Andre has made that I haven’t wanted or needed without knowing it.

@jmacias what other apps has he made that I don't know I need but most definitely probably do?

I use Alfred + IA Writer for these use cases all the time

@blakesamic What's the workflow? Does IA saves everything that I type in Alfred without the need of manual process of opening IA and then creating new doc?
Blake Samic@blakesamic · Head of Product Ops at Uber
@parwinder IA is a light enough app that Alfred can open it super quickly. So I just use Alfred to open IA and then start a new note with a keyboard shortcut. Very fast overall. Much lighter than opening Evernote for example.
Scott Winterroth@swinterroth · Co-Founder at ContentAcademy.com
Yeah, cool! I also need to sometimes remove formatting quickly and I don't want to open up a text editor app.

@swinterroth "Shift + Option + Command + V" on a mac?
Amit Kulkarni@akulkarni
Really like this. A modern version of the Mac OS notes widget. Is there a keyboard shortcut to invoke it?
