Stay organized with these Mac notebook tools

Eli Blueby Eli Blue

The Mac is loaded with full-suite, project management level notebook software capable of taking those scribbled notes and discarded blueprints and managing them effectively using tags and an organizational UI to die for. Whether its for school, work, or play, notebooks keep you organized for any project.

Here are our top three choices for Mac notebook software.

Evernote

Evernote is the de-facto choice for workplace organization. Scrap scribbling in notebooks and use Evernote to create notebooks to type in progress. Have multiple campaigns or clients on the ready? Create a new notebook for each goal and sync emails for checklist building. "Clip" or bookmark anything from the Web and create or append to a note. Plus, Evernote's integrated suite of partner add-ons (http://evernote.com/trunk/) offers features like Salesforce integration (Memonic), scanned document archiving (Shoeboxed),and Dropbox integration (Wappwolf).

Justnotes

Justnotes is a simplified versions of every notes. Simply click the + button and add yellow pad style notes using its highly intuitive interface. Set tags for each notes for easy retrieval later. Notes can be synched to Simplenote (http://simplenoteapp.com/). A no-frills app with limited functionality.

Things

Things is more project management and less note taking. Connected to the iPhone and iPad (sync able through a Mac), this app lets users create new projects (notes). An "Inbox" lets you create To Do items and store them before adding them to projects. For more information on Things' task management suite, visit http://culturedcode.com/things/
