Okay, after a lengthy public beta, Notebooks 2.0 by Alfons Schmid is available on the Mac App Store or directly from his website (14-day trial version also available).

It’s a great app, but they still haven’t solved the “PDF problem”, that is, the inability to search inside a PDF (full-text searches will find the PDF, but you can’t then search inside the found PDFs for the text you want - for that, you have to re-open the PDFs in Finder). It’s a shame, but I know Alfons is working on it.

Meanwhile, Notebooks 2.0 has plenty to offer despite this shortcoming - notably multiple windows, fast operation and some lovely formatting abilities (RTF, Markdown, MultiMarkdown) plus lots of export options. And a bunch of new styles.

As a powerful information store, there’s not much that compares. I believe Alfons is working on a Windows version that should be comparable to the new Mac version.

Cheers,
Bill

OK, it’s great to see v2 arrived, but a few quibbles.  The website says that v2 is an “upgrade” but there’s no upgrade fee.  Just $39 for v2 and that’s that.  I notice that on the App Store it’s $35.99.  Hmmm.

And v2 still doesn’t have a share extension on macOS.

It’s a nice app.  I use it occasional and I bought v2, but it’s more like v1.8 than v2 for the things it is lacking.

Yes, something that confuses me, too. The App Store page specifically mentions
++ Take advantage of our introductory pricing .....++
and quotes 39,99€

What is the regular price going to be or is this not the upgrade price (I very much hope so)? And how long is the grace period going to last?

Let’s wait for some answers further down the road.

Yesterday I emailed the dev, Alfons Schmid, and he said the pricing discrepancy was inadvertent and he reduced the price on his site to match the Mac App Store’s price: “the intended price is $39.99, but on the MAS App Store we accidentally set the price to €39, which translates to $35.99… I just corrected that and reduced the sales price on our website to $35.99 as well.”

I just bought the upgrade from him.

He’s a good guy.  Worth the investment just to keep the effort going.
