Icon Notational Velocity 2.0b3

Notational Velocity is an application that stores and retrieves notes. While there are many, many note-taking programs for Mac OS X, Notational Velocity is the only one that actually operates in a useful manner. The rationale behind this statement consists not of vague terms like "intuitive", "powerful", and "full-featured", but rather is based on the program's employment of well regarded and recognized practices in user interface design.

icon Papers 1.9.3

Do you have dozens of PDF files from your favorite scientific articles scattered on your harddrive? Do you also try to desperately organize them by renaming and archiving them in folders? But like the piles of printed articles on your desk, you can't keep up with all the new papers you download, and despite all your efforts it has become impossible to find that one article.
Finally that all belongs to the past. We've been there, trust us, we know. That's why we wrote Papers, our latest application exclusively for the Mac. Papers will revolutionize the way you deal with scientific papers. Search for articles using the built in search engines, retrieve and archive PDFs, and read and study them all from within Papers, your personal library of Science.

icon Records Master 7.92

Records Master is a secure file manager that allows you to collect important records (such as bank statements, credit card statements, investment records, bills, or receipts) or PDFs, in a database and allow for:
- easy addition of new files (importing),
- organization of files in hierarchical folders,
- optional organization of files by date,
- easy access to existing files (browsing, finding, smart folders exporting, printing)
- the ability to associate notes with files or folders,
- the ability to associate attributes with files (e.g., cost) and produce reports based on those attributes,
- reminders to download or scan in recurring records such as financial statements, (including an integrated website password manager with advanced features to make it easy for you to go to websites to download the records),
- encrypting the database, and
- automatic or manual backup of the database.
Think of it as a replacement for a file cabinet but with easier filing and retrieval. You can also use it just to keep any files together...especially useful for PDFs.
