Apple is on to something with gestures. We use fingertip gestures on iPhone and iPad. Even the Mac’s trackpad does gestures (with limited gestures on Apple’s Magic Mouse).
Here’s a simple note-taking app that pops out from the side of your Mac’s screen. Just swipe and it’s there.
SideWriter hides itself just off the screen, on either the right or left side. If you’re using other apps, it’s out of the way.
Move the Mac’s pointer to the edge of the Mac’s screen and SideWriter pops open, on top of whatever app you’re using, so you can enter notes.
Your notes get stored in the Documents folder automatically, so you don’t even have to think about saving a note.
Controls are obvious. Click the arrow to display the hierarchical view. Click the Plus sign to create a new note (click Minus to delete a selected note).
Notes are stored so you won’t lose a thought. The pop out makes it faster and easier to jot down a quick note.
Notes in the Documents folder can be organized however you need, imported, or exported. They’re just simple notes.
Notes are quick to create, easy to organize, and no other preferences to clog your writing.
