Looks like a $1.99 mashup of Gingko and a corkboard. Mac only. No syncing or cloud storage at this time.

A few videos on the developer’s site:

Developer is on Reddit (which is where I learned about it):

Doesn’t look practical to me if you have enough notes that would justify the need of an organizing tool.

Despite the name it does not look like an notes organizing tool. It’s more a writing (plus organizing) tool - similar to Gingko.

I tried this a few weeks ago. The little movie on the App Store is a bit misleading. It makes it look as if you can write your notes directly in the main window. You can’t. When you click on a note the note panel opens on the right of the screen and you put the title and write the notes there. That feels a bit clumsy and disruptive of the flow of thoughts to me. Also, you can’t export your diagram as a concatenated document… or, in fact, export your notes at all.

It’s early days, so perhaps XNote Organizer will develop further, but as it stands now I find no value in it for me.

I agree. I’m not crazy about that panel either. I want to have lots of screen space for my writing, which is why I usually compose longer texts in Drafts then Share In > Messages once I’m done.

Just looked at the MAS video for the 1st time - that video is one of the 4 on the dev’s site, but the dev’s site *does* have one demonstrating the slide-out editing panel.
