"The graduation of Evernote."

May 03, 2011  |  By dneimeier

 |  Version: Notational Velocity 2.0b5

Pros

Simple, efficient, everything I want in a note manager

Cons

None that I have encountered (been using for 5 months now).

Summary

Outstanding. No bloat-code. Very efficient. Create several notes. Search or create a new note in one operation. Can be used for note taking, to-do lists, journaling. This is everything I have been looking for...

"Quite simply the best"

April 01, 2011  |  By UVMoose

 |  Version: Notational Velocity 2.0b5

Pros

Easy to use. Search is instantaneous. Autosave.

Cons

There's nothing more I need in a note application.

Summary

As a professional writer I have used NV daily almost since it came out. The first of its kind and still the best.

"Great app. Works great with Simplenote on the iPhone."

February 02, 2011  |  By Jim Cole

 |  Version: Notational Velocity 2.0 b4

Pros

Ease of use. Intuitiveness. iPhone syncing with Simplenote. Most note 'manipulating' is customarily done on the desktop and with Notational Velocity, its a breeze.

Cons

None found.

Summary

Stop battling trying to get the iPhone's notes to sync, in a round-about method, with your Apple Mail. Put Notational Velocity on your Mac, Simplenote on your iPhone and you're up an running; no worries.

"Simple, Easy-To-Use, and Syncs with iPhone"

February 19, 2010  |  By joelmcintosh

 |  Version: Notational Velocity 2.0 b3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I use Notational Velocity for storing quick notes and references on my Mac. Paired with the application's ability to sync with SimpleNote (simplenoteapp.com) for the web and iPhone, this is a fantastic little application.

This application does EXACTLY what it promises. The philosophy of building an application that does a few things really well is exemplified in Notational Velocity.

If you need a convenient place to store text messages this is the application for you. The ability to sync notes to SimpleNote means that the notes you enter on your Mac are immediately available on the simplenoteapp.com Website and on your iPhone (and vice-versa).

"Simply Powerful"

February 05, 2010  |  By mail117

 |  Version: Notational Velocity 2.0 b2

Pros

Great product and now syncs with SimpleNote on the iPod Touch/iPhone. Carry your notes wherever you go.

Cons

There are no cons to this product that I have been able to find.

Summary

This is a brilliant way to keep all of your notes and snippets together, then be able to find them with blistering speed. It's a brilliantly simple app and simply brilliant to use.

"Fast & Efficient! ...but entirely black & white?"

November 15, 2009  |  By wildtrack

 |  Version: Notational Velocity 2.0 b1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Fast & Efficient! ...but Notational Velocity could use text & background colors.

I use text-colors for emphasis and categorization in my notes-to-self. (Such as money-matters might be in green text, while creative ideas might be in purple text.) Background colors could be used in a similar manner.

(Please reply to this review if I have overlooked the ability to apply text & background colors...)

Extra-credit points for: Very clever application name (!) & fresh graphics on developer website.

"Excellent!"

October 05, 2009  |  By hkim

 |  Version: Notational Velocity 2.0 b1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is a very simple application whose function is so effective as to make it very useful for keeping notes. Though graphics are not embedded, it allows one to make notes and to search for them so easily and quickly that it is really impressive. Allowing for one to export notes in UTF-8 is a great idea for those that use two-byte fonts. Any improvements, at this point, would be adding luster to the original concept.

I would only caution the author to consider carefully any additional "improvements" since very few applications can be the sum of all things.
