The Aquaminds Web site, which went without an update for many, many years, now references a soon to be updated Web site (showing a progress bar at about 75%). The page also refers to work being done on MacOS updates. It mentions both NoteTaker 4 and NoteShare 4.

The last version of NoteTaker was 3.2.1, which was released on December 14, 2013. Certainly a pleasant surprise for software that seemed to be somewhere between “pining for the fjords” and “nailed to the perch.” Also interesting in light of the demise of its semi-sibling, Circus Ponies NoteBook. Both were unique Mac programs, that have been somewhat daunting to replace.

It’s good news.  NoteTaker is a good product that I’ve avoided for almost five years due to the lack of attention.  Perhaps someone bought the company?

Interesting that they would spend time investing in NoteShare, though.  It was intended to do what, subsequently, iCloud sync now does for many apps.  And it was rather confusing to configure.

That is good news. I wondered if the Aquaminds folks would see an opportunity with the demise of CircusPonies Notebook. It is kind of weird to announce a partially done website, though.

Fingers crossed.

Every time I start a new Notetaker file, I go to the aquaminds site to see if it still looks like things look moribund. I just shot over to it and was delighted to see that there is life still on the site. I haven’t warmed up to the interface for Curio, though I keep current with updates.

Scott Love posted an update on NoteTaker 4


Short story: intent is to release 4.0 by year’s end.  A newer interface, but the work is mainly under-the-cover updates from OS X to macOS.  He mentions that 4.0 is going to be 64-bit, which explains a lot.  The next version of macOS (High Sierra) will begin deprecating 32-bit apps, which will not run on at all on macOS starting in late 2019 (i.e. approximately two years from now your 32-bit apps will die).

(Sorry for making another post about Mac software.  Ugh.)
