Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Mar 24, 2015

Letterspace for Mac is an easy-to-use app that lets you create and organize notes, whether they're meeting or class notes, a grocery or to-do list, or all of the above. With it streamlined design and indexing ability, it's sure to be a useful addition to your app library.

Pros

Automatic indexing: These days, hashtags are commonly used in various social media avenues; however, Letterspace lets you use inline hashtags to organize your thoughts. If you use a hashtag or "@mention," it indexes it and displays them for easy access. Clicking on the hashtag or mention takes you right to the note.

Interactive to-do lists: Letterspace uses its own syntax to let you create interactive to-do lists. Just type a dash, followed by square brackets and your text. Clicking inside of the brackets adds an "X" to mark the task as completed.

Automatic save: Letterspace doesn't work in the same way as, say, Microsoft Word, where you have to save or risk losing your work. We closed out of Letterspace without purposely saving, and our work was right where we left it when we reopened it.

Cons

Unhelpful help: We always like to check out an app's help feature to find tips and tricks. Letterspace for Mac didn't have much in terms of a help feature. It offers a link to its website, but nothing else in terms of an FAQ. The website did offer a few explanations of its features, but they were geared toward the mobile version of that app.

Bottom Line

Letterspace is an elegant solution for taking notes and keeping track of important tasks. Despite its lack of a viable help option, we think most users will be able to find their way around without any issues. We highly recommend it for all users.
