Editors' Review

Notepad for Mac is a note-taking app for Mac OS X. A trial version is available from several download sites, while the full licensed version of Notepad for Mac will cost you $20. Notepad for Mac installs easily.

The concept behind Notepad for Mac is that any text can be saved and pasted into any app. You can drag and drop text from one app to another, or you can cut and paste to the Notepad for Mac. As text is moved through Notepad for Mac, it builds up a history list, which lets you recall any content and reuse it quickly. Notepad for Mac supports passwords, so you can protect your sensitive notes from others. There's a flexible search capability that can scan through all the notes you've made and pull up matches. The search allows wildcards, so you can look for text based on expression patterns. There's a full set of text tools available, so you can format your notes on the notepad any way you want. You can print directly from Notepad for Mac, too.

We used Notepad for Mac for almost a month to see if it added to our productivity. It's a mixed bag. While the ability to drag and drop any text is handy, this is not something that's new to Mac OS anyway. Storing and managing notes is fine, but there are apps for free that do the same job. In the end, we're not convinced that spending $20 has really given us anything we couldn't get elsewhere with no cost.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Mac Notepad for Mac 8.0.0.316.
