As many of you know, and hopefully are ready for, we will be recording LIVE today at 6PM EST, which is a little more than an hour away! We are very excited, and you can keep up with us at any of the following:
That’s enough advertising, now on to the real purpose of the post!
While preparing for the new Podcast, I decided to dig around and look for the best (open source) note taking application I could find. I have heard about Notational Velocity, by Zachary Schneirov.
Obviously, by the looks of it, development has ceased on the project the code hasn’t been updated in 2 years.
However, a fork of the project, which I heard Merlin Mann discuss on another podcast I listen to, has continued to improve. The fork is nvALT by Brett Terpstra and it is what I will be using today while recording the new podcast!
Brett has written a great summary of what Notational Velocity is, what nvALT is, and the features that this application has. If you are interested in contributing to a growing, fun Mac App, this is a great place to start!
