Noteworthy (free) is a small and compact app for quick note taking on your Mac. The app is always running conveniently in the background, a keyboard shortcut/click away from typing what’s on your mind. The text formatting toolbar is sub-par compared to programs like Word or even TextEdit. However, this won’t be a problem if you don’t need to style the text of your writings. Jotting down notes right in the menu bar is much easier than launching a text editor from the dock or launchpad. Noteworthy is a great app for quick pasting, to-do lists, in-class notes, and more.
Noteworthy lets you keep your notes arranged and organized with notebooks. Another upside of the app is the ability to increase productivity with keyboard shortcuts: just press a key combo and type. Why not try it out? You can get Noteworthy free in the Mac App Store now.
