NoteTaker 2.6 and NoteShare 2.6 Arrive - Mac App Store Exclusives


This past week has been very busy for our team. We just shipped NoteTaker 2.6 and NoteShare 2.6 which both require Snow Leopard as a minimum system. With Lion on the horizon this year, we're busy preparing to support the new user experience features coming to Apple's next operating system version. In advance of Lion's arrival, we've introduced the 2.6 version series of our products which are now available from the Mac App Store. They are the beginning of our new development effort for 2011.

Should I upgrade now?

If you're already using 2.5.9 then it's not an essential upgrade for Snow Leopard users. Version 2.6 includes a new menu structure and updated documentation now delivered in notebook file format (.ntx). All other changes are minor bug fixes that are already available in 2.5.9. If you do upgrade or buy a copy from the App Store, you won't have to pay again or pay for future updates as we will be releasing them throughout the year via the App Store.

App Store Licensing

The App Store is a hassle free way to keep your software updated and never worry again about lost or stolen license keys. No more support emails required to find your license. The App Store is a convenient, simple way to get the latest software from AquaMinds Software.   

Can I try before I buy or upgrade to 2.6?

Yes. We are posting 2.6 trial versions on our site early next week. Apple doesn't currently support test-drives so we're posting free 2.6 trial versions on our site.

New Pricing for App Store

NoteTaker 2.6 is $24.99

NoteShare 2.6 is $49.99

NoteTaker Viewer 2.6 (free)

What about Leopard users and 2.5.9? Will I still be able to buy it from your site?

Yes. We'll continue to sell 2.5.9 to Leopard users from our site.

Are you working on an iPad/iPhone client with support for capture and live editing?

Yes. If you have used NoteShare Mobile Viewer on your iPhone or iPad then you know we're heading in that direction.

NoteShare Mobile Viewer Updated to Version 1.0.3

NoteShare Mobile Viewer is a companion app to AquaMinds NoteShare™ and NoteShare Server™ for OS X. It can browse and display notebooks being actively shared from your Mac, or any Mac running NoteShare anywhere in the world. Changes saved by NoteShare or NoteTaker users to a shared notebook are displayed within seconds in the mobile viewer. Notebooks are automatically cached when viewed, for efficiency and for viewing offline. No tedious manual file transfers or synching is needed.

NoteShare Mobile Viewer displays an accurate HTML representation of the original notebook's content and appearance. This is the same representation used by NoteShare's Web Notebooks™ feature. You can navigate by touching page titles and numbers, section tabs, links, and the next and previous page buttons, as well as by using touch gestures.

NoteShare services sharing on your local network are automatically discovered. Other NoteShare services may be added by typing in the NoteShare service's address. Full 128-bit AES encryption is used to transmit the content of password-protected notebooks, just like the full version of NoteShare for OS X.

System Requirements
• iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch running iOS v4.2 or later
• AquaMinds NoteShare or NoteShare Server v2.5.7 or later
• An active network connection between the iOS device and the computer running NoteShare (for downloading and synchronizing notebooks).
