Developers are always looking for a way to make note taking simple and easy. Techstars-backed Stashpad builds a ‘DM-to-self’ interface for developers to allow them to quickly write and organize it later. Qept is an iOS app with a similar note-taking philosophy but for all types of users.
Now a new Mac app called KIND created by Nicolas Bichon is to use the concept of the command bar to allow you to write down any thoughts that come to your mind.
Type is a barebones launcher: it lets you use a customizable keyboard shortcut to invoke the app and write thoughts. It automatically attaches a timestamp to each note so you can have better context later.
“I’m used to taking notes in text files (something to talk about in my next 1-1, tweet ideas, etc.), and I wanted to make a command bar app so I could easily can take notes from anywhere while I work. , without having to manually open the file and thus stay focused on my task,” Bichon told TechCrunch via email.
As Bichon said, all notes are saved in a text file, which you can easily export or send. You can create a new file to give it more folder-like structure in Type priced at $3.99 without any additional in-app purchases.
While the app doesn’t have a ton of features right now, Bichon said users will be able to delete, clear, and search a note in the coming weeks. Next, users can also export notes and have a new option to always see the app on the screen.
