What is Growly Notes?
Growly Notes is a note-taking app somewhat like Microsoft OneNote . Gather text, images, links and anything else you can think of in free-form pages organized into sections.
Organize your information Growly Notes lets you capture everything you’re interested in, all in one place. Organize research projects, trips, to-do lists, or journals. Scrapbook your images, web links, and video clips. Your imagination is the only limitation.
Pages can contain almost anything: formatted text, images, movies, audio clips, PDF files, tables, lists, web and file links, and drawings you create in Notes. There are no rules for where things have to go: put an image beside text, or under it. Draw shapes on top of other notes. Put two snippets of text right next to each other. Click anywhere and start typing.
Notebooks are organized into sections (the larger tabs on the left in the image above), each of which contains as many pages as you like. All the open notebooks are shown in one window, for easy navigation and quick jumps.
Appearances are (almost) everything With Notes you can change the appearance of everything on the page, from the color and font of text to the background color of the page and whether it has rule lines -- even put a picture behind all the notes like a watermark.
But you can also change the look of the Notes program itself! We prefer the colorful tabs shown above, but if you find them distracting you can change the tab colors, remove the tab colors, or just give up on the tabs altogether and use a traditional Mac interface.
Creating a notebook is one thing. Finding a specific note a week later is another. Notes lets you search all open notebooks for any text, and shows you the results in context. A single click on a result takes you to that note.
You can also tag notes using built-in categories and search for tagged notes with one click. For pinpoint searches, look for tagged notes that contain specific text.
