Lenote for Mac loads more quickly than the average word processor, making it a convenient app for taking notes. Offering plenty of features and delivering excellent performance, this app is a great solution for users looking for a sleek, hassle-free notepad.

Lenote for Mac installs from the App Store and features a clean and minimalistic interface. Notes are organized in notebooks, and you can easily create a new note by clicking on the plus icon next to the notebook to which you want to assign it. Basic formatting options like bold, italic, and strikethrough are easy to reach via the menu bar or just by using the right-click on the selected text. The potent built-in spelling/grammar checker comes in handy, too. Notes can be saved as plain text, markdown, or PDF, as well as shared on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Additionally, you can check at any time how many words and characters each of your notes includes via the unobtrusive icon to the left of the application window. You are also able to manually back up your notes as well as set automatic backups to run hourly, daily, or weekly.

Neat and easy to use, Lenote for Mac stands out from other note-taking apps. It looks great and is free from errors and bugs of any kind, making it an excellent choice if you want a clean notepad free from the distractions of a bulky word processor.
