App Description

Take notes beyond the limits.

Create and edit anywhere in a note, keep notes locally/offline or in a cloud you like best, keep notes structured in the most natural hierarchy ever, and collaborate across devices and platforms. Freedom but clear structure. Power features but focus on note-taking. Beautiful UI. OneNote compatible.

- Choose where you want to store your notes: Dropbox, iCloud, WebDAV, Box, or OneDrive
- Consider a no-cloud option too: some notes need offline and cloud-free privacy
- Mind the coming-soon: SharePoint, OneDrive for Business / Office 365

- Find everything a note needs by the hand: text, lists, tables, images, checkboxes, hyperlinks, and more
- Put that stuff anywhere in a note and then move around / re-size / edit it all, the way you like
- Keep notes structured in a natural hierarchy of pages, sections, and notebooks
- Access a note fast via recents, search, and note links
- Manage font size and color, apply styles and highlighting
- Attach files and insert printouts, to collect documents in one place

- Import from OneNote, to give those notes a new start beyond OneDrive or SharePoint
- Export to OneNote, just in case
- Go beyond import/export and do a real time collaboration on notes with colleagues who use OneNote (your Mac and their PCs)

Whether it is your meeting minutes, research, document annotations, ideas, or even a book, give those a chance to go beyond the limits.

Your notes are essential and do matter more than formats, storage, platforms, or even the app for note-taking.
