I've been looking for a program, kind of like Omni Outliner, to take notes in but also keep them organized by class (for school). Circus Ponies' Notebook seemed like the perfect solution til I saw it wasn't freeware. I'm looking for something like that app, but free, or at least less than $10.

Thanks!

If you already have MS Office for Mac there is a note taking view...
I don't.
I have OmniOutliner, Notepad, OpenOffice, AppleWorks and probably more, but none of them seem to have a built-in organizer by class.

I'd love a program to keep all my grades in too

Try Opal for the time being. The author says it will go shareware, so you might have to account for that at some point. Also consider iProcrastinate - I think the author is a MR member too.

FWIW, I've tried Notebook, Curio and the Hog Bay app and am an owner of OmniOutliner Pro. Didn't try Yojimbo yet, but it's gotten great reviews and is pretty cheap.

[edit]: Journler is free and looks great. Going to try it out on a project now...

Right now I don't think the program I'm looking for even exists. I think I'm going to try using OmniOutliner for a while and sort my notes with folders, a different folder for each class.

What is wrong with omni outliner? I've been using it to take notes and it seems to get the job done. I have seperate directories for each class and store the individual files in there.

xPad looks nice but I'm not looking to pay for something like this right now unless it is exactly what I want.
Outside of Notebook's visual metaphor, what else about it set it apart from the pack?

I've tried most of the note taking apps and have settled on MyNotes. It has the right balance of simplicity and usefulness for me. Not too pricey at $15.95.
