"Still working after all these years ..."

Deep Notes has been out here for some time now, but I'm relatively new to it. I downloaded it about 6 months ago or so, and it's been a real helper.

I'm an habitual list-maker, and I find myself jotting lists down here and there, and I can never find that one place where aggregating my lists WORKS. Not until I found Deep Notes, that is. It thinks like I do ... categories ... sub-categories ... color. Love it.

When I start feeling myself overwhelmed by the magnitude and diversity of what I have to do, I start listing things in Deep Notes, and there I can see -- plainly and simply -- what the whole ball of wax is made from. It's simple to use, and that's the key.

"Great small app"

This is a perfectly simple and wonderful app. I agree with the reviewer below, it does deserve an award.

I use a different app for list management/GTD, but this app is perfect for a range of tasks - outlining papers, comprehensive grocery lists, brainstorming ideas.

The keyboard shortcuts are great. I _like_ the lack of customizability - you can spend too much time deciding how far you want indents to be, whether you want dots or numbers for sub-items, etc. No decisions here, and that's great.

Export to text works well in my limited experience.

"Great for GTD"

It's not especifically made for GTD but I find it perfect for it because of how easy it is to add items and because I value simplicity.
Any given line can be a project when it has tasks as children, and tasks can have notes as children. Any of these things are added instantly without selecting dates or priorities or contexts like GTD apps.
I move projects to the top of the list and/or color them red and/or open to see its tasks when I want them to show high priority (this is really easy with all the keyboard commands)
I color tasks blue if their context is outside (fortunately I live on just about three contexts)
The shortcuts window is really great as a "trainning mode"

The only downside as a GTD app is having to save the file instead of automatically saving and defaulting to the previously opened list(s) when the app opens again.

Also, a delay before opening parents when dragging lines up and down would be appreciated.

"simple notepad-outliner works great"

just perfect for certain needs

only nit - author added a keyboard command to the Keyboard Shortcuts window that you can make visible to refer to while you work - he added an item but left the window the same size and now all the text doesn't fit in the fixed-size window. Not a big deal, but...

Anyway, kept that 5th star missing, that and limited customizability and export abilities

Still, great app

"A Perfect Lister"

If you want an outliner, you'd be happier with Word. However, if you want a simple to-do list that allows hierarchical grouping of items, Deep Notes is perfect. No bells and dates and alarms... just a straight-forward to do lister. Couldn't be better. And the price is right:)

"Nice program but could use some additional features"

I played around with this application for a while, and it seems pretty good as a basic outline generator. It would be nice if it could export/import tabbed-text outlines that could be used/generated by other applications (eg BBEdit).

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.0
  • Intel-compatible.
  • Requires Mac OS XÃ??Ã? 10.4 Tiger.
  • Deep Notes documents are now indexed by Spotlight.
  • Re-implemented printing:
    • Printing now includes all items regardless of whether or not they are expanded.
    • Long items are wrapped into multiple lines as necessary.
    • Printing font and use of colours can be set in the Preferences.
    • Document is no longer centred on the page.
    • Page setup is now stored for each document.
  • Favourite colours are now shown directly in the toolbar, allowing access with one click.
  • Favourite colours can be used by pressing Command-1, Command-2, etc.
  • Fixed bugs that could occur while editing content and structure.

  • Multiple entries can now be cut. This will include children of selected entries.
  • Dragging to a text destination will no longer include all children, only the exact selected items.

    • The Right and Left arrows now expand and collapse items.
    • Command-Right and Command-Left can be used to indent and outdent, in addition to Tab and Shift-Tab.
    • Command-Option-Right moves the selection into a new item.
    • There is no longer a key for selecting the parent of the selection, since the Left arrow is now used to collapse items. Let me know if you miss this functionality.

  • Added optional toolbar items for moving up, down, in and out.
  • Redesigned toolbar icons.
