There's a lot of good in Notefrog. But on a completely shallow personal level, the interfaces leave me taken aback with shock as a user and a developer.
Completely shallow, I know... but as someone who loves designing the UX, it's something I have a hard time getting past.
This. I bought a license when Notefrog was really young, despite it being the ugliest software I've ever seen. Bad by Windows 3.1 standards. I figured it was just an awkward early phase but... years later I can only deduce that it is by "design". I can get behind function before form (Love ArsClip), but this is absurd.
I agree. I got a license too and tried somewhat committing to it. But it never stuck with me. Still, it has some features i really enjoy. The interface is difficult to get past though. I've used arsclip, clipmate, CHS, notefrog, aceclip. They all have certain features that are unique, but in the end, my current workflow uses CHS and clipmate. CHS for the mouse popup and text cleanup features. Clipmate for hardcore archiving, complicated queries, and complex cut/paste jobs. CHS replaced Arsclip, especially once mouser implemented the icon feature. interface-wise, I liked aceclip the best, I love that program, but too much overlap, and not enough uniqueness with the other two I use.
I think what was initially attractive about notefrog was the find as you type. But eventually, all these programs got that, so now I don't know what is so great about it.
