Tab Notes


Tab Notes keeps your notes tidy and easy to access and your screen uncluttered. Click on your screen edge, then a note pops up!

• Click on your screen's edge to take a note.
• Document file types are conventional RTF (Rich Text) and RTFD (Rich Text with images). Not proprietary format. (This application uses "Comment" property in RTF. )
• RTF documents can be synchronized with iPhone.
• Documents folder can be any folder in your home folder.
• Supports versioning. OSX keeps documents' previous versions. (This app does not contain version browser. Please use TextEdit to browse version files.)

※ This app has the same features as the notes plug-in in our Popup Window application.
