Notebook, Zoho’s Beautifully Simple Note-taking App, Arrives for Mac


Chennai, India, 20th January 2017: Today, Zoho announced the launch of Notebook for Mac, bringing a refreshing perspective to the note-taking market. With smartphone and tablet apps, a browser extension, and now a desktop version, Notebook is available for free and ad-free, across devices.

Notebook’s iPhone app was named a Best App of 2016 by Apple’s App Store. The team has brought the same visual elegance and ease of use to the Mac. You can see a video of the application in action by clicking here:

“Creating a note-taking app is easy,” said Raju Vegesna, Chief Evangelist of Zoho. “Crafting a note-taking app that redefines the market is not. That’s what we set out to do with Notebook, and we believe we’ve achieved that, first with our mobile apps and now with our Mac app. And with our Mac app, we actually aimed higher. Not only did we want to create the best note-taking app, we wanted to craft one of the best Mac apps.”

Notebook for Mac’s Key Features Include:

  • Create Notes: Notebook’s mobile apps introduced the concept of Note Cards: dedicated note types for text, checklists, audio, photos, and sketches. The same concept has been applied to the Mac app, creating a simple and enjoyable note-taking experience.
  • Customization: A notebook is a personal, thoughtful space. Notebook encourages users to make the app their own by giving 25+ hand-drawn notebook covers to choose from, and the option to add their own. Individual notes can be grouped and color coded with default colors or by choosing from a color wheel.
  • Notable Gestures: Notebook brings the familiarity and ease-of-use of your smartphone to your Mac. With a trackpad, users can navigate Notebook without making a single click. Users can open and close notebooks, and group and ungroup stacks of note cards by pinching in and out. Users can see more information, lock, or delete note cards with a two finger swipe.
  • Touch Bar: Notebook works with the MacBook Pro’s new Touch Bar, enabling contextual buttons within the app. The Touch Bar can be used on the note card level; it offers formatting options in Text Card, start and stop recording buttons in the Audio Card, and more. Users can also unlock notebooks and note cards with Touch ID.
  • Pricing and Availability: Notebook for Mac is available worldwide for free. Notebook will remain 100% ad-free across devices, with no sync or device restrictions. The app is optimized and available in multiple languages. It can be downloaded from the following link:
