    Anyone have this program? http://www.apimac.com/notepad/

    I've been looking for a free program that will allow me to have notes organized by different subjects but this seems to be the only thing I can find. Their demo doesn't allow you to do much so I wasn't able to really get the feel for it to decide if it's worth the money.

    Anyone use anything else?

    Personally, I use the Finder. And my favorite text editor. I label a folder according to a subject, and then put my text files of that subject in the folder.

    If you're talking just text... there are a plethora of options... the challenge is to wrap your mind around the different ways to deal with text... and to acknowledge that it is just text... maybe you need to focus on reading and writing, not storing and accessing.

    The link shows you related apps.
    Also, if it is smaller amounts of text you want to manage, you could try something like yojimbo or shovebox

    I don't have/use it but my college friend does. It's called Circus Ponies Notebook. Works great and does so much for a notebook app.

    There are many more.

    Free:

    xPad
    Voodoo Pad Lite
    ScratchPad
    Mail -- a buddy of mine takes all his notes in an email client and then emails them somewhere, so there's always a backup.
    viJournal Lite

    Not so free:

    Caboodle -- currently my favorite.
    Voodoo Pad
    viJournal
    Journler

    All are available at macupdate.com

    Depending on the kind of notes you want to take you may like Yojimbo.

    Thanks for all the replies everyone. I'll try to figure something out. Right now in the mean time I set up a bunch of different "Lists" in dashboard. I think I might go with something like that as well as the Mail thing.
