      "Nifty!"

      February 04, 2004   |   By Pres!

      Version: Not Found

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I'm always looking for a better way to archive my assorted writings and clippings from the web. I registered and have been using Skinkhunt Notes exclusively for a couple of months now and it's a very nice solution.

      I'm very pleased with the way it saves its files as a heirarchy of separate TextEdit files inside its folder at ~/Library/Application Support/Skinkhunt/Notes, so I know my data is always safe in case I have a need to access it in another way. I've worked with other apps that used proprietary file formats, and after having had to scramble to get my notes out, I'd rather not trust my data to that sort of scheme anymore.

      For balance: the only problem I've seen with the app is that I have to keep unchecking the "Keep index tidy" option in the Prefs - it keeps re-checking itself when I quit and re-launch it. But that's trivial compared with the benefits it supplies.

      A very nice job!

      "Fancy a skinkhunt ?"

      June 21, 2003   |   By Lex Luthor--2008

      Version: SkinkHunt Notes 3.0

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      Sit ' Skinkhunt notes 3' and 'Hog Bay notebook 2 b2' ( Who makes up these names and why? ) side by side and you will on the surface see very little difference between 'em ( both $20 - except the Skink used to be freeware )

      The 'Skink' - which has been around for ages in various guises, has superior dragn'drop capacities - including jpegs and html docs etc... which the Hog does not do - making it more of an all-round scrap-book type of app rather than a dedicated notebook ( I already have moderately expensive image management tools - but need a small footprint notebook ).

      Like the hotly debated existence of a god - It's in the details that you must look to find answers, and the Hog in IMHO has the edge - ( the Hog tells you how many files are in each folder, useful highlighting of text, labeling of notes - same as the finder, are all excellent and once used indispensable. )

      Good design like theology is a matter of taste and from the icons to general layout skink looks like the designer has more of a childlike take on interface design compared to the elegance of the Hog. If you need a general text/image scrap book look no further peps, but if you want the best notebook for under $20, the Hog always gets the truffles !

      In the real world if you put two cars that looked this simular side by side - lawyers would be needed.

      "Why the hype?"

      June 17, 2003   |   By Luhmann

      Version: SkinkHunt Notes 3.0

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I don't understand the rave reviews. First of all, I don't like programs that only will work in the root Applications folder. This is just bad programming, it is easy enough to make it work anywhere. Secondly, it is slow. Third, I don't understand why it has two kinds of items. With imported files they can be opened and edited in a third-party app, like Tex-Edit which is nice, but then there are also notes which are only used internal to this app. Switching between an RTF file and a note is a one-way conversion. I find it strange to have some notes in one format and others stored in another. Personally, I am eagerly awaiting the new release of Hog Bay Notebook which is much much better - but till then I'm using Note Pad Deluxe.

      Version: SkinkHunt Notes 3.0

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I've downloaded every note program off of VersionTracker over the years and I have yet to find anything that works better than Notes (formerly Notebook). I think it contains the perfect balance of features--not too light (like Apple's old Notepad) and not too bloated either. Being able to print will be a nice feature in this release. One of the things I use Notes for is to copy/paste webpages when I am working in Safari or Chimera (a la the scrapbook feature in IE). I can personally attest that the support for this program is awesome. Steve is one of the nicest developers I have ever dealt with.

      "It is the Pick of the Litter"

      June 16, 2003   |   By ncianca

      Version: SkinkHunt Notes 3.0

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      This is an excellent notepad/scrapbook manager, certainly the best in the under $30 category. It's been a long time since the last public beta was posted (NoteBook 2.5d) and this new version is certainly worth the price. It feels solid when using it. It also has a separate text area for each note, so that you can add comments to photos or other content. The name change makes sense as to not confuse it with Circus Ponies NoteBook, but, unfortunately, the Notes name is also used by some other (similar) apps. This is one well done application.

      "Pick of the Litter?"

      May 04, 2003   |   By dirtbagg

      Version: NoteBook 2.5.d

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I'll start the ball rolling with a solid thumbs-up for this application. I've tried a couple of dozen notebook/scrapbook replacements. The mid-weight feature set of Notebook 2.5 works best for me. The list view is hierarctical, not catagorical and both text and/or images can be saved as .rtf or 'stored' in their native formats (ie .jpg). Even multipage .pdf files can be stored in Notebook and viewed in Preview. This is a cocoa app with Services support, you can select text or image in your browser and click 'add to notebook'. Multiple notebooks would be a good future enhancement, the list view can get very long.
