Squarespace Note helps anyone record their ideas on the fly. Writers, bloggers, and others can use the app to record inspiration and ideas as they happen; notes can be sent via e-mail, or synced with a range of popular services including Squarespace, Evernote, Dropbox, Google Drive, and more.
A simple, clean note-taker; no Squarespace account required.
Drafts is a different kind of note taking app. In Drafts, text comes first – open the app and get a new, blank draft. Don’t get bogged down in a timeline to tweet or post to Facebook and App.net. Don’t tap through multiple screens to compose an email or SMS. Don’t navigate folders, create files and name them just to jot down a note or create a todo.
Drafts is a great way to quickly jot down some text, but it really shines when you start mucking about with ‘actions‘—custom routines that let you do all sorts of clever stuff with files in Dropbox, mail messages and installed apps, via their URL schemes and x-callback-url.
Pop the following into your browser’s URL bar for an instant, temporary notepad:

Scapple, ‘a tool for getting early ideas down as quickly as possible and making connections between them’.
Simplenote syncing note-taking application, inspired by Notational Velocity and ResophNotes, but uglier and cross-platformerer.
For Linux, Windows and OS X.
Leave yourself a note or reminder with Growl or the Notification Centre.
Sticky Notifications lives in the Menu Bar—with a global keyboard shortcut available to call up the ‘new notification’ window—and you can make notifications from selected text via a System Service, integrate the app into an Automator workflow or use a URL scheme to create a notification from within, e.g., Alfred.
Deft is an Emacs mode for quickly browsing, filtering, and editing directories of plain text notes, inspired by Notational Velocity. It was designed for increased productivity when writing and taking notes by making it fast and simple to find the right file at the right time and by automating many of the usual tasks such as creating new files and saving files.
Password Pad allows you to create multiple note files, each encrypted by a different password, and then take them along on your iPhone or iPad securely.
Files are synchronised via Dropbox or iCloud. There’s also a beta Java version of the desktop app, which runs on Linux, OS X and Windows.
Jotbox, at it’s core, is very simple; it’s an app to quickly email yourself. You can jot as text, doodle or photo and it’s perfect for getting ideas and reminders “on paper” as quickly as possible.
The qq script and related extensions are designed to keep an archive of files with questions as the filename and answers as the content. It works well with Notational Velocity and nvALT, but can function as an archive of knowledge with nothing but a Mac and a command line. Scripts are included for Quicksilver, LaunchBar and Alfred, as well as a command line tool.
