Daily Jotter is a simple notepad that automatically provides a new page every day. It is ideal for storing notes and snippets of information that you want to return to later - just like a paper note book.

NOTE that minimum version of OS X is Lion version 10.7.3.

  • A new page every day
  • Save as you type
  • Print any entry
  • Find text across all entries
  • Entries list window
  • Print multiple entries
  • Export any entry
  • Fast start up

    As it creates a new page every day, you can be sure that when you open it on a new day, a blank sheet is waiting for you.

    Daily Jotter will automatically save your notes as you type, so you never need to worry about losing your work. It has also been designed to be fast, so don't worry about exiting the application; it will start up again quickly when you need it!

    You can navigate between days by selecting the "Previous" or "Next" buttons on the toolbar or using the menu items on the Page menu. The "Today" button will return you to the page for today.


    "I used to keep TextEdit open all the time and have a million little text documents always floating around on my desktop unsaved. I wanted an app I could leave open on my desktop as a "scratch pad" to jot down notes, snippets, addresses, phone numbers or anything else I wanted to capture. I wanted a new page daily with the old pages to be kept and searchable. Daily Jotter is very clean and simple. It does no more or less than I needed. You get a page for every day. Edits are auto-saved as you make them. You can search through your history of pages and see which days you actually wrote something. It's simple and it saves me from my own disordered mind."

    "I'm really enjoying this app since it's just really simple and quick! You jot down things you want to remember and you can return to it exactly the way it was without having to save anything."

    "Turns out the simplest app that I downloaded is the one I use the most."
