    Hey all,

    Does anyone know which word processing app has a window that looks like a lined notebook with spiral bindings?

    I saw a kid in class yesterday typing notes on this app and didn't think it was MS Office since I have that and can't find anything like that.

    Is it Pages?

    Thanks in advance!

    Office 2004 does have a notebook view.
    could've also been: Notetaker perhaps.

    there are probably more out there though.

    Thanks for the help all. Circus Ponies' Notebook might be what I saw.

    Journler may be of interest to you. It doesn't have the lined notebook spiraling effect, but it's an awesome app to use as a personal diary or journal. It's like iLife, for your thoughts! Did I also mention it was free? (It has password protection too! ;))

    Eh, I think it's Notetaker. I use it, and it definitely has the spiral.

    You want more options = Notetaker.
    More simple = Notebook.

    Both written by partners who were writing the same software, then they broke off to form their own companies after disagreeing about what features to implement. Very similar software.

    Separate. Each around $40 for student.

    Veritas: Thanks for that background info. What I was looking for was indeed Notetaker. But I was trying both apps and did notice the similarities.

    Wayfarer: Thanks for the link. The journal app is great! Can't beat the price too!

    Wow, Journler is really awesome. I love the calendar feature in the corner to help organize my entries. It's a great way to take and sort class notes.
