About Our Products

TopXNotes is a full-featured personal information manager for Mac OS X. It provides complete control over the look of your notes, including font, size, style, alignment, color, and text background color. TopXNotes can help you organize all the bits of information you collect in your life into meaningful Groups (like folders) and Categories (similar to tags) to make them easy to find when you need them. Our exclusive QuickNote™ feature makes your most frequently used notes available no matter what application you are using.

Cloud-free WiFi NoteSync with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
Tropical Software was the first developer to sync notes from the Mac to the iPod, and bringing this functionality to the iPhone and iPod Touch was a high priority for us. TopXNotes touch will sync up with the current version of TopXNotes using "Cloud Free" WiFi NoteSync.

Sync Notes with Classic iPods
Tropical Software was the first developer to sync notes from the Mac to the Classic iPod, and this option remains in the current version of TopXNotes Mac.

2Remember is an easy to use reminder app that takes up a tiny space on your screen.

iAddressX- Navigate contacts from a small icon in the system menu, print Dymo labels, Dial regular and Skype calls, start SMS messages to Skype pals or friend's cell phones, and more.

KitchenTimer is a product we wrote to do one thing: remind us when it is time to get up from the computer and do something else. You can use it to remind you when the roast needs to be taken out of the oven, when it is time to check the laundry, or just to tell you it is time to take a break from the computer.
