has updated NoteTaker 2003 — a Mac OS X product for managing personal notes, Web site URLS, lists, outlines, projects and information of any type that can be stored on a computer — to version 1.1. The update includes over 25 new features, improvements and optimizations, according to the developer.
NoteTaker 2003’s interface incorporates a “spiral notebook with tab sections” metaphor. It can be used to take notes, manage project plans, create screen slide presentations, drag or clip information from other applications (or use NoteTaker Services), index and search notebooks, publish and share information, add voice memos and more.
The software integrates the desktop features of Mac OS X while also adding transparent support for Services, QuickTime multimedia support, AppleScript programmability, embedded Web page viewing, and document/file linking, according to Scott Love of AquaMinds. NoteTaker 2003 also makes extensive use of user-defined Categories for database-like management and active indexing of content for on-demand information lookup and retrieval, he added.
NoteTaker 2003 costs US$69.96 and runs on Mac OS X 10.1 and higher; a demo is available at the AquaMinds Web site. Version 1.1 is free to registered users. AquaMinds also offers academic and volume pricing.
