OS X: NoteSuite offers you more than a digital notebook — you also get document storage and a to-do list manager. Furthermore, it clips from the web, syncs with your mobile device and looks good doing it.
If you think that NoteSuite sounds a bit like Evernote, you’re not alone. Evernote likes to be an everything bucket and NoteSuite seems to want the same thing. That said, as much as we like Evernote it isn’t the fastest or easiest app to work with. On top of that, when you try to be everything it becomes hard to adapt to specific things.
NoteSuite takes a slightly more organised approach, making your notes, to-dos and document storage separate entities. While you can make a to-do list in Evernote, you have a more robust management tool in NoteSuite. Instead of just creating a list, it understands the purpose of that list. You can mark items as important, set due dates, and even create reminders. This way you don’t have to force the app to sort of act like a to-do manager or use a separate one in its place.
Not everyone will want to pay the $US5 for NoteSuite when they can get Evernote for free, but if you’d rather have one app to handle both your notes and tasks, be sure to check it out.
