App Note Maker for macOS

Innovative concept for creating and managing notes for individual apps. Add apps into a main list and create notes for the apps. When a chosen app's UI is focused the built-in menubar list dynamically updates to show just the notes for the foreground app. Clicking on a menubar's text will copy the text to the system clipboard, ready for pasting. Optionally toggling the Auto Selection toggle button will also automatically switch App Note Maker's UI to show the appropriate notes for the focused app - which can be useful when observing App Note Maker while it is in the background.

How To Create Individual App Notes Using App Note Maker for macOS

  1. Startup App Note Maker app.
  2. Wait for apps to be listed in bottom left navigation, under 'Apps'.
  3. Using mouse cursor, hover above an app you want to add a note to. Click the + button that appears.
  4. The chosen app will relocate to the upper left navigation area, under 'App Notes'.
  5. The chosen app's main view should automatically load.
  6. Using the main view's + toolbar button, add desired number of notes for apps.
  7. The first text field is for labeling the line item. This is optional, but may provide important context.
  8. The second text field is the note field, enter appropriate note text here.
  9. The far left 'checkmark' button copies the text in the note field to the system clipboard.
  10. The second 'mask' button obscures the note field from view.
  11. The right 'trash' button deletes the note line item. If a line item doesn't have any text entered in the note field, click the delete button won't prompt for delete confirmation. Holding option key and clicking delete button will also bypass delete confirmation.
  12. The far right menu icon can be used to grab a line item for re-ordering items.
  13. When a chosen app is focused on, the App Note Maker menubar (along system menubar in upper right) will dynamically update to show appropriate notes for focused app. For example if you added notes for the 'Calendar' app, when clicking on Calendar and bringing UI to the foreground, the menubar will update to show notes specified for the Calendar app.
  14. Auto Selection can be toggled from the App Note Maker's upper left toolbar. This function will automatically select an app and load an app's notes in the App Note Maker's window when that specific app is focused on.
