Let's face it: the market for note-taking apps is pretty well saturated. There are plenty of options to choose from and a lot of them aren't that great. Simplenote for Mac, however, is a standout. Combining an incredibly simple interface with some really useful options, it's a great choice for anyone who jots down notes, lists, ideas, or other bits of information that need to be organized.

The interface couldn't be easier; a pane on the left displays each note's title and a preview of the text, while the right pane displays the full text of whichever note is selected. Adding a new note is as easy as clicking the plus sign and typing whatever it is you have to say. Important notes can be pinned to the top of the list for easy access, and a search bar makes it easy to find notes by keyword. Simplenote also allows you to collaborate with other users on notes and publish notes to the Web, providing you with a URL for each published note. Simplenote stores notes in the cloud, so you can also install the app on your iPhone or iPad and access your notes anywhere. The program doesn't have a Help file, but a sample note explains its basic operation. Overall, we were quite impressed with Simplenote for Mac; it was easy to work with and proved to be both versatile and powerful.

Simplenote for Mac installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend it to all users.
