Salzburg, Austria – Alfons Schmid today announces the release of the desktop version of “Notebooks,” a popular productivity app on iPads and iPhones. The desktop application is available for Mac OS and Windows and perfectly complements its iOS counterpart.
Notebooks was originally designed to do away with paper notes and has evolved into a powerful productivity app that includes advanced text processing for plain text, formatted text and Markdown, provides space to store and organize files and documents, and also integrates complex task management. Despite its power, Notebooks strives to remain light weight.
Users can create formatted documents using WYSIWYG style editing, produce formatted HTML using Markdown, or simply type plain text notes, and all while using custom fonts, colors, and background patterns. Advanced options allow users to convert between these formats, use Markdown syntax highlighting and formatting and much more.
Notebooks supports unlimited nested books (folders) to organize contents by topics, subjects, projects or any other category. This makes it easy to separate private notes from business documents, client data from journal entries or school subjects from each other, just to mention a few options.
A book in Notebooks displays its contents either as a list of documents, or as a list of tasks. These task lists can be nested, too, which allows users to split complex projects into smaller, less intimidating packages which are easy to manage. If desired, tasks can be assigned due dates.
Users may import documents of various formats like HTML, RTF, PDF, MS Office, Apple iWork, photos, videos or even web archives. This turns Notebooks into a document archive and personal knowledge base.
Notebooks provides multiple options for synchronizing its contents between devices (iOS, Mac and PC), with Dropbox and WebDAV sync currently being the most comfortable options. iCloud support will follow soon.
With its unique combination of convenient features, Notebooks quickly becomes the go-to app, no matter whether the users want to draft or outline a business presentation, type a chapter of a short-story, list inventory, save web pages for reading later, write an entry in a diary or journal, tick off tasks, or just capture notes and ideas. Notebooks is the all-inclusive note application that will effortlessly handle all tasks.
