On December 3rd 2008, Notebooks 1.0 made its appearance on the App Store. It was primarily meant as a proof of concept to find out if there is an audience for my idea. A few days later I knew that there is, and this was the beginning of a journey which lasts to this day. I am thrilled that we are now celebrating Notebooks’ 10th anniversary.
To celebrate, we offer Notebooks for iPhone as a free download for a limited time. So if you have been pondering, just go ahead and give it a try.
Next up is Notebooks for Mac 2.0. We have mentioned that a couple of times already, and the release date is getting closer; if all goes well, the update should become available before the end of the year.
After that, the iOS version of Notebooks is calling for a major update as well. There is no set release date yet, but we have a list of useful additions and enhancements for Notebooks 10. – We are still trying to extend Notebooks in a careful manner and don’t want to add features just because we can. So we may not always be the first to adopt new technologies, but we do so when it makes sense 😉
With that, let us head into Notebooks’ next decade, and thank you all for your continued support!

Congratulations. Keep up the great job. Thanks
Ich gratuliere und bin dankbar für Ihre Ausdauer und den Ideenreichtum. Natürlichen ich sehr auf die neue Version gespannt.
Congrats. Please tell me that you won’t abandon the PC Windows version ?
No we won’t 🙂
You Magic Bunny, Alfons! There I was, thinking you’d forgotten Notebooks for Mac; I’m so delighted to find you haven’t! Notebooks has been the single most comprehensive info management and writing app for iOS since iOS was first created – once the Mac side is as good, there won’t be any reason to buy all the other pretenders.
Great stuff! Keep up the good work!
I know, we may have made the impression that we abandoned Notebooks for Mac, but the reason for the lack of updates was that we put all our energy into the major update (the rewrite, in fact). Notebooks 2 is Mac native, looks and behaves like a macOS app, and it is much more fun to use. It will even have a few features that are not yet available on iOS 🙂
You did mention there was going to be a major rewrite, which is why I’ve tactfully not been hassling you… but I couldn’t restrain my cries of joy when I heard it’s close to release!
Good for you – it’s hard being an independent developer, but just remember all your fans are out here rooting for you.
Thank you so much for your patience 🙂
Just one thing: I use Notebooks on my iPad, Windows PC and my iMac. Will they continue to be compatible when you introduce major improvements to the MacOS and iOS versions?
Yes, we will do our best to make sure the versions remain compatible.
Excellent work Alfons. I have been with you since the beginning and I am continually happy that you carry on your work on Notebooks.
