    I am glad to introduce my new mac app --- Quiver!

    Quiver is a Mac OS X app that lets you easily take programming notes. It’s like Evernote, but optimized for programmers. A few key features include: easily mix text with code in one note, an awesome code editor built-in, and lightning-fast full-text search.

    You can find more information and screenshots on the Mac App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/quiver-programmers-notebook/id866773894?ls=1&mt=12

    Promo codes can be found in another thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1728827

    I started using it today while working on my final for my 2D animation class. Absolutely love it. It helps having the code to look at, with the parameters underneath without having to just note things out in the code itself.

    Quiver 2 is released!

    Quiver 2 is finally here! It has brought a huge list of new features. This is a free update for all existing Quiver users.


    You can download a free trial version here: http://happenapps.com/#quiver

    A long list of changes:

    ## A Light Theme for Yosemite

    Quiver 2 comes with a new light theme that looks stunning on Yosemite. The lighter and cleaner UI really brings content to the center of focus. The dark theme is still available as an option.

    ## Cloud Syncing

    Quiver 2 lets you sync all you notes across multiple computers via Dropbox, iCloud Drive, Google Drive, or any other file-based cloud services.

    ## Shared Notebooks

    Quiver 2 introduces “Shared Notebooks”. You can either create a new shared notebook, or share an existing notebook. Once a notebook is shared (via Dropbox or other cloud services), other team members can open it on another computer and collaborate on the notebook. This is a great way to build a shared knowledge base for the team.

    ## Version Control

    Quiver 2 stores all the data in plain JSON files, so it’s easy to put the whole library (or a notebook) under version control. This is another way to collaborate with other team members.

    ## Data Backup and Recovery

    Quiver 2 lets you back up your entire library with a single click. Restoring your library from a backup is just as easy.

    ## LaTeX Cell

    Quiver 2 introduces a new cell type: a LaTeX cell. This is great for typesetting mathematical equations in your notes.

    ## Multiple Windows

    In Quiver 2, you can open a note in a separate window. This is useful when you want to have a note window side by side with a browser window. Changes in one note window are immediately synced to other windows showing the same note.

    ## Live Preview

    Quiver 2 supports live preview of markdown and LaTeX cells.

    ## Presentation Mode

    Quiver 2 adds a new presentation mode. This is great for classroom use, team meetings, presentations, as well as reviewing notes on your own.

    ## Exporters

    Quiver 2 lets you export a whole notebook. You can zip the whole notebook and send to others. You can also export a whole notebook as HTML files.

    ## Integrations

    Since Quiver 2 stores all the data in plain JSON files, it’s easy to write scripts to integrate Quiver notes with other systems. A few common export scripts are listed on https://github.com/HappenApps/Quiver/wiki/Export-Scripts. You can easily adapt these scripts to fit your own needs. Use cases include writing developer documentation, blog posts, tutorials, or even a complete technical book.

    ## Tutorials and Documentation

    Quiver 2 comes with better in-app tutorials, as well as a comprehensive online wiki. Anyone can contribute to the wiki and make it better.

    Other Improvements and Bug Fixes:
    * Sort notes by name, date created or date updated.
    * Import/export now preserves tags.
    * Use highlight.js for code highlighting in exported HTML.
    * Added a shortcut that inserts a new cell at cursor location.
    * Images copied from other apps are now properly saved in the note folder.
    * Fixed issues with dragging files or images into a text cell on 10.7.
    * Select multiple notes and move them to another notebook or trash.
    * Assign tags to multiple notes.
    * Deselect the selected cell when it loses focus.
    * Fixed a bug that white spaces in text cells were sometimes not preserved.
    * If you highlight a section inside a cell and choose “split cell”, the selection will be converted to a new cell.
    * Fixed a critical issue with search on Yosemite.
    * Added a menu item to duplicate a note.
