Are any of you Mac users using either of these? I’m still pondering on what to use for taking notes. I really don’t need one that talks to iOS, though I think both of these program do.

Or have any of you stuck with Tinderbox long enough to tackle its learning curve? I keep updating my license to Tinderbox with the idea that the interface will morph into something more intuitive, but I’m thinking now that it is only getting more complicated, with the user manual usually being about a year behind the software in updates.

If need be, I’ll stick with NoteShare/NoteTaker by Aquaminds, thought it seems to be living on borrowed time.

OmniOutliner remains my primary note taker / personal information maintenance tool. It’s stable, mature, well-supported and still undergoing incremental development, and has just had a major price decrease.

I’ve begun experimenting with Task Paper 3, and am really pleased so far. Of course, it’s not the right tool if your major interest is in storing non-textual notes.

I use OmniOutliner for all of my outlining chores, and it does have a third pane for text, but I’ve never viewed it as a primary notetaking app. Part of my fondness for the dead Circus Ponies Notebook and the moribund NoteTaker program were the look and feel of a notebook. I want to like Curio, but text doesn’t seem to be its strength.

I’ve never taken advantage of Omni’s columns feature, and that might make it a better notetaking app. In the 1990s, I poured everything into Ecco Pro, and am surprised that nobody has cloned the idea since.

Having columns is a big plus for outliners, so do try it in Omni. It adds another dimension.
FWIW, InfoQube IS an Ecco Pro “clone”. Well… in fact, it is much more.
But of course, it’s hard for me to be objective LOL

Indeed, and if I was still a Windows guy these days, I’d no doubt love it. I can use Nota Bene under Wine. But it still looks so Windows-like.
