After a period of quiet on the Aquaminds blog, they posted today.


Appears to be light at the end of the tunnel. Their most recent beta release has a cleaner-looking user interface. Hard to put my finger on it. I have had very *few* difficulties with the beta, and I think that those of you who have missed Notebook since the demise of Circus Ponies will like working in Notetaker 4.0.

Is the UI updated?

What is sync like?

How would you compare it to the existing competition (eg OneNote, KeepIt, Devonthink)?

Good news.  I would welcome a return of Aquaminds Notetaker.

I can’t compare it with those apps as I use it almost exclusively for lists and outlines. I could never get past the odd interface of OneNote, and DevonThink works as more of a massive text base for me. To me, it is preferable to OmniOutliner for lists because I can keep everything in one file (which is what some people find…dangerous).

I wouldn’t consider DEVONthink or Keep It as “competition” for Aquaminds Notetaker.  Notetaker is pretty much a digital representation of a paper notebook.  Storing more than a few documents, or a hierarchy of documents, or a combination of file types (pdf, Office, web archives, etc.) in Notetaker would be painful and not the best use of the app.  WRT OneNote—I’d say Notetaker is more handsome, but its data is not kept in a cloud like OneDrive so Notetaker is no match for that capability of OneNote.  Notetaker’s iOS app in the past was very ugly.  Maybe now it will get better.
