When it comes to truly thinking different, I have a great appreciation for app developers who come up with a useful feature that both differentiates the app from competitors, and has benefit for the user.
Enter Daily Jotter for the Mac.
It’s a notes app; a quick and easy way to jot down a few notes, or a todo list, and keep them handy, well organized, in a single location, always accessible.
What’s so special about that? Any one of a few dozen notes apps does exactly the same thing; many are free, most cost a few dollars. Daily Jotter opens with a new page each day so it’s always ready to capture new notes or lists.
It saves as you type, and anything you type– list or notes or whatever– can be printed with a click. There’s a built-in entries list window to find any note. Each day starts with a new blank notes area.
If you’re like me and you’ve used TextEdit to capture odds and ends notes, lists, snippets of text, you’ll appreciate Daily Jotter’s simplicity and perspective. Here’s a feature that’s overlooked among Mac notes apps.
Daily Jotter, as an app name, implies a quick way to jot down notes every day, search for notes by keyword and day (navigation is back and forth), but there’s another use. Daily journal. Think journal or diary, but that little blank notetaking space that Daily Jotter gives you each day is perfect as a daily journal of the day’s events. Or, the day’s objectives.
I’m a child of the Franklin Planner system so using Daily Jotter as a simple list of the day’s objectives can have a profound effect on productivity. Or, simply as a way to capture your thoughts as the day progresses.
Daily Jotter isn’t loaded with features like Evernote, but is more personable, easier to manage, and just doesn’t get in your way. Your notes and lists and objectives and journal entries are always where you left them.
It could have more features, but it’s not bad for a few bucks.
