Offers folder organization, encryption, more
Clippings is a new notepad and note-taking app for the Mac from Lagente Software that focuses on ease of use and elegance rather than an extended set of features. It does offer some advanced features such as encryption, quick search, formatting options and folder-based note organizing, but was created for users seeking a simple notepad app. It is now available worldwide in the Productivity category of the Mac App Store.
The program stores its files in RTFD format to protect against obsolescence and to make transferring to other applications easier, allowing users to easily access each individual note without opening the application if need be. Even encrypted notes can be accessed this way, providing the user has the password. The program uses 128-bit AES encryption to protect the files.
For a limited time, the company is celebrating Clippings' release on the Mac App Store by pricing it at $1 for a limited time, after which it will return to its normal price of $10. The program requires OS X 10.6.6 or higher.
