Growly Notes for Mac has many features that are useful for note-taking, but it ultimately fails to set itself apart from similar programs.
Upon startup, Growly Notes for Mac immediately brings up a note containing a tutorial, which was very helpful since there were a number of options and features. A top menu contains buttons for the main options, from creating a new notebook to changing colors. The interface could have benefited from larger text or more appropriate graphics for the buttons, to assist new users. During testing, creating a new note was easy. The program allows users to add almost anything to a new note, including pictures, PDF images, and text. While notebooks can be saved and exported, there is no direct link to things like smartphones, which is a feature present on most competing applications. It's also not really clear if active technical support is available, but the program does support updates.
Growly Notes for Mac functions well as a note-taking application, but lacks some of the cross-platform features of competing programs.
