The developer of StickyBrain is either feeling the heat from Bare Bones’ competing product, Yojimbo, or is just inspired by it.
A new StickyBrain beta (4.1b3) released today introduces at least three new features found in Yojimbo and offers a number of other significant new functions including a full-screen view, a post to blog option and new “Daily Notes” and “Journal” formats.
You can find screenshots and more after the jump…
StickyBrain’s DockNote: StickyBrain has added a side-drawer to the edge of the screen like Yojimbo’s Drop Dock:
It allows you to drag and drop content in a wide variety of formats into StickyBrain. It also offers the ability to paste notes from the side-drawer directly into the current application.
Labels: StickyBrain now has labels very much after the fashion of Yojimbo’s labels:
The labels consist of a name and a colour, both of which can be edited. You can also search by label (as you can in Yojimbo), which gives labels a basic “tagging” function.
Print to PDF: The new beta adds an option to the Print dialog that enables printing directly into StickyBrain as a PDF. You can see it in this screenshot directly under Yojimbo’s print to PDF option:
This new version also adds audio recording capabilities to Audio notes, the ability to post notes to any blog that supports the Atom protocol and new Daily Notes and Journal folders which automatically insert a date stamp into the notes title.
A full screen option for viewing and editing notes is nice and will please those who like to work in full screen mode to reduce distracitons.
Printing improvements also include support for printing Bookmark, Web Archive, Image, and PDF notes.
Even a die-hard Yojimbo convert like me has to admit that StickyBrain now leads the pack. It makes me look forward to what Bare Bones will do to raise the bar again.
StickyBrain is shareware (USD 39.99) and is available from the developer’s web site .
I found the beta on MacUpdate .
