What is SideNotes?

SideNotes is a note-taking app for Mac, iPhone and iPad. On Macs, it looks like folder-organized sticky notes on the side of your display. The app synchronizes your notes automatically between your devices.

On iPad, you can show the app in a similar way in SlideOver view.

The discount only covers the Mac version.

SideNotes shows and hides with a single click (or cursor move). When shown, it takes up just the margin of your screen and leaves the rest for your work.

Pop it up, quickly note and move on. Thoughts, to-dos, screenshots, links, and numbers - while you still remember.

SideNotes for Mac combines the simplicity of sticky notes and the convenience of complex note-taking apps. It can be a complement to your main notes app, where you usually keep longer texts. It's super useful for saving snippets while writing essays or researching.

Show the app in a flash to take a note. In the meantime, keep it hidden on your screen side.

Also save your side thoughts in SideNotes - note down quickly anything that comes to your mind and stay focused on your work.

SideNotes features: • Lives on the side of your screen visible only when you need it • Shows and hides with a single click (optionally, with a keystroke or move of your mouse) • Saves screenshots and pictures, sketches and photos from iPhone and iPad, file and folder shortcuts, code snippets • Allows rearranging notes and folders • Previews #rrggbb colors • Supports: Markdown, themes, note coloring • Supports also: Shortcuts Actions, Apple Script and Alfred Workflow.

SideNotes is created by Apptorium.
