Circus Ponies Notebook for Mac is a versatile system to help you organize and keep track of your notes for work and personal projects. You can keep different notebooks for separate projects, and you can choose to start your notebook completely from scratch or with an appropriate category list in place.


Templates: When you start a new notebook, you can choose from several different templates that will make organizing your ideas and information that much easier. Options are organized into categories like General, Professional, Education, and Project, and specific templates exist for anything from writing a book or novel to preparing for a trial.

Tabs and contents: Navigation through your notebooks is streamlined with the inclusion of an active table of contents and labeled tabs down the side. You can click on any tab or item in the table of contents to go straight to that location, making it easy to find a specific piece of information in a large and complex document.


Free trial setup: Just to start a free trial for the app, you have to leave the app and go to the program's Web site to enter your name and email address. The trial lasts 30 days, after which time the program costs $49.99 to purchase in full.

Bottom Line

Circus Ponies Notebook for Mac offers a lot of convenient features to help you stay organized and on top of your day-to-day responsibilities. It runs smoothly, and the ample free trial makes it worth trying out to see if it's a good option for you.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Circus Ponies NoteBook for Mac 4.0.2 (742).
