MemoBlock is a straightforward program that enables you to create, organize, and export notes with minimum effort. This application might come in handy during busy work days when you wish to be reminded of the tasks you need to complete or of the business meetings you wish to attend.
You can customize the appearance of your notes by changing the font style and size, organize your memos into defined categories (work, personal, etc.), and arrange them in alphabetic order. In addition, the program provides you with an integrated search tool to help you find notes with ease.
MemoBlock also lets you transfer your memos to your iPod (iPhone or iPad transfer isn't supported yet), print them directly from the interface, or export the notes to various formats.
A good thing about this application is that it also allows you to set reminders for any entered memo and plays an alarm sound. However, I didn't like the fact that the program doesn't let you select personal audio files as sound alarms.
To conclude, MemoBlock is a simple yet effective app that helps you keep track of your daily tasks. The program provides you with an intuitive interface, offers plenty of note customizations, and comes free of charge.

The utility enables you to create notes that are saved automatically and that will be listed together instead of being saved as files in different folders, which you would need to browse through in search of a text of interest. This is helpful when it happens that you forget a text file's name or where you have saved it, which complicates finding it. A search tool lets you find notes by title, certain words in their content or tags. In this way, if you have focused on a certain subject in several notes, you can easily identify all of them. Notes of special interest can be bookmarked. Also, certain words can be turned into links. When clicking on the link, either all notes containing it will be listed or you will be taken to a certain note, depending on how you decide to use the link creation option. Given that it is only dedicated to taking notes, there are no complex text editing tools included, such as for inserting complicated mathematical equations for example, or images, but it would be nice to have such options available.
nvALT is a good option for creating notes that are easily browsed through and managed.

"I can’t help but admit that Bluenote really is one of the best notes apps out there." — AppStorm
“Bluenote is fun to use and just gets out of the way so you can do what you need to do.” — TUAW
Bluenote automatically encrypts, saves and syncs on the fly. It's a fantastic app, exclusively for the Mac.
Some data is always relevant. Notes, to do lists, passwords, things you reach for every few minutes. Wouldn't it be great if there was an app that organized them, encrypted them, synced them and helped you through them with a beautiful interface? Bluenote is a beautiful way to be more productive.
The program is nicely-designed and very intuitive. You can sort the stored items by attaching descriptive tags (for example work, personal, birthdays, dairy, etc.) and use the integrated search tool to immediately find the to-do list or note you need.
To use this program you would need to create a personal account on the Evernote webpage or log in to your Google account. This aspect is quite useful as not only it enables you to keep your stored data in sync, but it also helps you prevent other users from accessing your personal notes and to-dos while you're away from your Mac.

Busy people like yourself have lots of projects. Make sure to prioritize only the next actions with a star and focus on getting them done. With time-management and filtering you'll know exactly what to do next!

View your scheduled tasks in a calendar. Never miss a deadline or appointment again. Tasks scheduled for today become your Next Actions automatically to make sure you'll get them done.

Think of contexts as a place or tool - like your "computer", "phone", "home", "office" - to make sure you'll get tasks done in these places and with these tools. Organize in projects but work in contexts!

Email wasn't designed for project collaboration. When you communicate through actionable tasks, you and your team get a lot more done and everyone is on the same page all of the time.
- Share projects with friends and team
Sharing has never been so easy. Share projects with your team, delegate tasks to them (making these tasks their Next Actions) and hold folks accountable.

You can add a comment to each task. Use this as a note for a task or start a discussion with your team. This will make sure everyone understands what really needs to be done.
- Comment with pictures, documents and more...
Comments are not limited to text. You can comment with checklists, images, photos, sketches, documents, Evernote notes and so much more. This will help you get your point across clearly.
- Receive email updates of your team's activity
Don't collaborate through email but stay in touch with your team thanks to regular email updates sent to you every hour... but only if something's happening in the projects you care about.
