[prMac.com] Boston, Massachusetts - Dear Panda LLC today is pleased to announce the release of CourseNotes 1.0 for the Mac, a powerful app which helps students to take notes and stay organized. CourseNotes, previously available exclusively on the iPad, is a valuable tool for any student looking to create and organize notes on their Mac and wirelessly sync notes, ToDo items, sketches and assignments with their iPads. The app is available in the Education category of the Mac App Store and is currently being featured in the "New and Noteworthy" section.
CourseNotes for Mac helps students stay organized by arranging notes by subject and note session, letting users quickly find notes from a particular class meeting. The ability to search notes and the new "saved search" feature also make finding specific content quick and easy. Integrated ToDo items allow students to track homework assignments and other reminders right in their notes. The unified ToDo list displays all upcoming and past due ToDo items, letting students track all of their important dates, events and deadlines in one simplified view.
Since opening day of the iPad App Store, students have been using CourseNotes on the iPad to take notes and stay organized. Now students can sync that data directly to CourseNotes for the Mac. CourseNotes supports wireless syncing between Macs and iPads so that that students can take notes on the go with the iPad, then sync up with CourseNotes for Mac at home for editing, review, printing and backup.
As with CourseNotes for the iPad, Dear Panda is offering CourseNotes on the Mac free to qualified educators for evaluation purposes while supplies last. To request a promo code, educators can contact Dear Panda with their title, affiliation and information about how they are using the iPad as an educational tool.
