Swooped in and grabbed a copy of Outline for Mac for $6.99
I’ve written many times of my fondness for OneNote and since work is almost exclusively Mac based, I’ve been looking for an alternative to use. Yes, I know there is OneNote for Mac, but have you used it? To put it bluntly, it’s a piece of crap. It’s slow, buggy and the requirement of hooking into Windows Live is an utter annoyance. Plus, like so many other Microsoft services, it just doesn’t work correctly.
I have Outline on my iPad and it’s a great app. Now, Outline for Mac has dropped to $6.99 and I jumped at the chance to get a copy. Normally, Outline is $39.99, which I think is outrageously priced. Yes, it’s a good program, but let’s not get ridiculous with our pricing shall we? But hey, $6.99 is more than a fair price.
The install footprint is extremely small with a 38MB download. This is a fraction of what it takes to install the latest version of OneNote.
So far, Outline is working very well. It’s quite, has the tabs I’m used to, allows the local creation of files and is far more responsive than Microsoft OneNote for Mac.
If you’re looking for an usable tool like Microsoft OneNote, but you actually want it to work correctly, I would recommend checking out Outline for Mac. It’s a really good program that is always improving and has all the features of OneNote that I want to use.
