Vesper. Collect your thoughts. ➝

A new notes application by Brent Simmons, Dave Wiskus, and John Gruber. It’s a beautiful application that’s very snappy but doesn’t quite have the most important feature for me — syncing. If I was able to access Vesper notes from my Mac I’d immediately switch. But for now, I’ll patiently await a future update that adds some sort of syncing support.

Notational Velocity Syncs with Simplenote ➝

My favorite mac notes app, Notational Velocity, was recently updated to version 2.0 beta 2. With the new release came some great improvements including a new icon by Colin Cody and better synchronization with WriteRoom/SimpleText.ws. But, the best new feature of all is that Notational Velocity now includes built-in Simplenote syncing.

Simplenote happens to be my favorite iPhone notes application, it is drop dead simple and the interface is super clean. I’ve been using Notational Velocity off and on since I heard about it early last year. The lack of this exact feature is what has kept me from using it full time, instead using Simplenote’s web app because of the syncing.

With this new feature, Notational Velocity just became invaluable to me.
