Apps That Stay: Notational Velocity


Today marks a sort of unusual anniversary for me. It was the day that I discovered what remains my favorite application, on any platform, of all time — Notational Velocity. I first started using it on this date back in 2005 — 8 years ago.

In fact, I first wrote about it just a few days after I downloaded it. And I have continued to use it, every day, ever since. I now use nvALT, which is Brett Terpstra’s wonderful fork of the original that includes all sorts of handy extra features.

That said, the original version would still be plenty fine for me regardless. A really great app.
