Mac360 10 ways TopXNotes is powerful

Powerful TopXNotes (Mac360) "I’m a notes freak. I have notes on everything. From to-do items to code snippets to tasks and projects to article ideas. Here’s an understated, unloved, deceptively powerful notes app worthy of some Mac’s loaded with user features that set it apart from other note taking apps. TopXNotes is deceptively powerful and flexible, probably because the interface is immediately familiar."

Ron Mc Elfresh, Mac360

Macworld Magazine 4 out of 5 mice4 of 5 Mice! (Macworld Magazine) "What sets TopXNotes apart is its QuickNotes feature. Designate a note as a QuickNote, and you can access it from the drop-down menu of a floating palette that always appears on top of other applications. That lets you open notes quickly, without having to toggle through other apps or lose sight of the window you are working in. If you are in the market for a lean, mean note-taker, TopXNotes lets you jot your thoughts down without a lot of distractions."

Philip Michaels, Macworld

9 out of 10! (Macsimum News) "TopXNotes has all the features you need to keep track of, organize and access all sorts of notes. And the ability to password protect, a feature missing from many other note products, is icing on the cake. Several companies have released Note Pad replacements, but TopXNotes - a Mac OS X tool for editing and organizing notes - is my favorite."
