MacNote3 for Mac PowerPC

If you’ve been searching for a great notepad for a long time and have yet to find the right fit for your needs, I think your search is about to end right here.  MacNote3 is a very complete product that goes beyond the capabilities of a simple notepad.  It’s fast to use and has a very clean interface.  One very interesting point is MacNote3 is similar to Notepad or Scrapbook (applications familiar to users of Mac OS9).  This is such a powerful app, and I highly recommend it to all of you!

But now let’s check out the features, please pay special attention to feature #7 because it’s essentially what is missing from Notes and iCloud.

MacNote3 – 3.0.1 (Trial – $15.00) 10.4 Tiger / 10.5 Leopard / PowerPC –

If you check “Downloads” you can see a list of other interesting apps that they  have developed.


1. Simplicity

The most important feature of MacNote3 is its simplicity. It can be used in a fairly intuitive way, and there is no need to pay any attention to its file structure, or worry about saving data. New data is saved automatically and in a manner compatible with unhindered use. I hope that, for purchasers, MacNote3 will always be the stationery of first recourse.

2. Link

The user is able in any MacNote3 page, to install links to URLs, Files, other pages of MacNote3 and messages in Thus, pages can serve as an application launcher or a bookmark. In OSX 10.4 or higher, it is possible also to make a link to a message in, so it’s easy to organize a To-Do page.

3. Multi-Window and Tab

MacNote3 allows the opening of multiple windows. In addition, multiple pages can be opened, via a tab, in one window.

4. Incremental Search

MacNote3 provides a swift incremental search. The user can quickly locate a needed page, even though it may be hidden among many others. MacNote3 also provides a list of “Frequently-used pages” and “Recently-used pages”, so the user is free to store as many pages as required.

5. AppleScript

MacNote3 is AppleScript compatible. Text data from MacNote3 can be transferred to another application via AppleScript. For example: templates for creating mail messages may be stored in MacNote3, and by employing AppleScript, new email messages can be created from these templates. Or, by means of AppleScript, lyrics from iTunes can be imported into a newly-created page. AppleScript can edit text of MacNote3 too, so it’s easy to insert HTML tags and so on. Of course you can write a new script and expand the ability of MacNote3 by yourself.

6. Iconize

If the user so desires, MacNote3 windows can be made to appear as tiny icons, and thus can be displayed separately on the desktop. In this mode a MacNote3 window is unobtrusive, yet allows the convenient entering of new data.

7. Export to iPod

It’s easy to export page data to an iPod, and therefore memos can be read on an iPod. MacNote3 can export its page data to any kind of iPod – from the oldest models to the most recent touch iPod or iPhone (with the exception of shuffle). Now MacNote for iPhone and iPod touch “mmNote” is available (freeware). MacNote3 can synchronize its data with mmNote via Wifi, so the users can refer to and edit MacNote3 memo and its images on iPhone and iPod touch too. (Screenshot 1, 2, 3, 4, “mmNote” manual)

8. Compatible with other standard services of Mac OSX

MacNote3 is compatible with other services that apply in Mac OSX. A new page can be created via the “Service” menu of another application; a page in MacNote3 can be opened via Spotlight; a page previewed via QuickLook, and so on.

Evernote for Mac PowerPC

Evernote for Mac PowerPC (2.2.3)

When I found out that this app worked for my Mac PowerPC I was really excited and right away I installed it on my iPod Touch 8GB.  I think we Mac PowerPC users score one more point without having iCloud!    I highly recommend all PowerPC users try the Evernote app.  It’s the perfect solution to synching all your notes, drawings etc.  A great feature even allows you to take a picture of a document, make notes/mark-ups/edits to the Evernote, and then later it will be synched to your Mac.  You also can make and upload voice and audio notes, and share your notes with your friends on facebook and twitter.  There really is nothing quite like Evernote!    You can even create grocery lists and check off the items as you buy them in the store, or organize your favourite recipes, and then search by ingredients when you’re in the grocery store…makes shopping and meal planning so easy!  Gosh, I’m really hungry now! Most of the web-sites they released were for Intel only, but this weekend I was trying everything available for 10.5 and bingo, it worked perfect!  I immediately made my account and am ready to go!

If productivity means to be more productive, then Evernote is the epitome of Productivity because you can actually capture your ideas and inspirations on the go!
