Editors' Review

Scapple for Mac makes note-taking quick and effortless, and lets you make connections between your notes using a straightforward drag-and-drop action. This premium app comes with an impressive array of options for customizing the look and feel of the notes, along with a powerful export feature. This app can definitely increase your productivity at the office.

Following a quick installation, Scapple for Mac greets you with a minimal interface. Commonly used actions can be triggered through intuitive shortcuts: double-click to create a new note and drag one note on top of another to create a link between them. You can also drag files or Web sites into a canvas; image files are applied directly, while other files and Web sites are given a link. A nice touch is the ability to extend the canvas infinitely in all directions, so you never run out of space. Performance-wise, Scapple performs well while keeping its system footprint relatively low. The only major downside of this app is its lack of multiple device support -- you can only use it on a Mac.

While Scapple for Mac possesses an impressive array of features, its lack of device support makes it far less useful than it could have been. It remains a worthwhile app, though, but only for those who do all their note-taking on their Mac and don't need to synchronize their notes across devices. If you want a note-taking app that's compatible with your iPhone or iPad, this isn't it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Scapple for Mac 1.1.
