Editors' review

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.

    "One of the best free apps I have ever used!!"

    February 24, 2014   |   By soundguy1958

    Version: Growly Notes 1.2.14

    Pros

    Attention touring technicians.

    It's free...no banners, no ads....just real software that does what it says it can do. I am a touring audio engineer, and this is the best thing I have found to advance my next show. I can be on the phone with the venues Tech Director and take notes at the same time. Then later I can visit the venue's website and copy and past their tech information and any pictures, so that I am prepared before I get there and setup.

    Cons

    Need a better way to share my notes with someone who does not have Growly Notes

    Summary

    If you need an app to organize your notes......look no further.

    "I feel I've been gifted with a new and useful toy!"

    Version: Growly Notes 1.2.2

    Pros

    GrowlyNotes is so intriguing! I haven't been able to use it yet pending a bit more orientation. Everything I've read and can discern seems to put me in a huge room where creativity is fully encouraged and supported.

    Cons

    For a right-brain program, the instructions seem left-brain. Yet all is forgiven. The features of this program go 'way beyond anything I've used before, especially for free. I'm willing to do my homework!

    Summary

    I'm excited!
