March 30, 2009 in Utility (E)

[prMac.com] Dare to be Creative Ltd. today announced the release of SlidePad 1.2, an update to its note-taking application for Mac OS X Leopard. SlidePad, recently awarded an Apple Staff Pick, allows users to quickly and unobtrusively write down notes, thoughts, and ideas on a notepad that slides in from the side of the screen. The new features include importing and exporting notes, more formatting options such as bulleted and numbered lists, as well as customizations to adapt to the user's workflow.

Importing and exporting notes:
With the new version users can import notes from RTF, HTML, Microsoft Word and text documents. Moreover, users can export notes to RTF for backup or for editing in word processors such as TextEdit, Microsoft Word or Apple Pages.

More formatting options:
In the new version users can create bulleted and numbered lists, change the line spacing, set the text alignment and many more formatting options that would normally be found in a word processor.

Adapting to the user's workflow:
The update allows users to resize the width and height of the notepad area, as well as turn off sliding the notepad in and out with the mouse and instead work only with the keyboard shortcut.

Minimum Requirements:
* Mac OS X Version 10.5 or higher
* Universal Binary for Intel and PowerPC

Pricing and Availability:
SlidePad is $20 (USD), and available as a free download from the SlidePad website. It runs initially in a 15-day trial mode with all features active. This is a free upgrade for registered users.
