It's all you

Since Notebook holds your ideas, thoughts, and memories, we think you should be able to customize it too. That's why you can add custom notebook covers by simply dragging a photo onto a notebook. Once inside a notebook, you can color coordinate your notes with colors we've provided, or by making your own.

It's All You.

Mobile-inspired gestures

Mobile devices have taught us new ways to interact with applications through multi-touch gestures. Notebook brings the familiarity and ease-of-use of your smartphone to your Mac. With a trackpad, you can navigate Notebook without making a single click. Simply hover over a notebook or note and pinch to open and close it. Hover on a note or notebook and two-finger swipe to see more information, lock, or delete. When notes are grouped, use two fingers to flip through them.

Note Cards

Different types of notes should be treated differently. Jot some text and combine different types of notes in a Text Card. Drag images from your desktop right into Notebook, automatically creating a Photo Card. Stay on top of things with a dedicated Checklist Card. Record meetings or lectures with the dedicated Audio Card.
