User Interface

What Is It?

User interface refers to how the Mac note taking app presents notes to the user, categorized here as “simplistic” or “advanced.”

A simplistic user interface generally presents notes in a single window with three panes. One pane contains a column of note categories, a second pane lists the notes within the selected category, and the third pane displays the content of the currently-selected note. This style of interface is simplistic because presenting notes as a list quickly becomes unwieldy as you add more and more notes.

There’s no general description for an advanced user interface, except to say that they don’t take the simplistic multi-pane approach. These interfaces have also been well thought out to manage large note collections.

What Else Should I Know?

So many Mac note taking apps take the simplistic route because coming up with an original solution to the problem of organizing and presenting notes is difficult.
