I can’t believe I’ve found an app that does EXACTLY what I’ve been needing an app to do — be a quick place to scrawl some temporary text for reference. I used to use nvALT, until my computer inexplicably decided to utterly break the program, but I was never entirely happy with it. I didn’t want a place for saving and organizing notes, where I’d have to come up with file names before I could even start typing. I wanted someplace that I could scrawl something my boss said to me. Quickly accesible by hotkey, instant writing, utterly disposable.
The fact that you can make the window float on top of other windows in this app is what’s really putting me over the moon. When rewriting a document, I like to keep a copy of chunks of the original text for me to reference and cannibilize from. Having the original in one window and the new document in another side by side was too distracting for me. Until now, I’ve been using SnappyApp to take a floating screenshot of the original text which I can make small enough to not be distracting while still using it as a reference, but I couldn’t copy/paste from that. Now I can.
This app is seriously like someone read the wishlist in my mind. I’m so happy right now.
