For Mac users with lots to do. Mori is a digital notebook that makes it easy to record and organize your thoughts. Unlike the alternatives, Mori doesn't box you into one way of thinking. Instead, Mori's simple and flexible design puts you in charge of your information.

Requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

After many promises Mori wasn't updated in a year, and the developer hasn't been heard of in six months, despite known problems with Snow Leopard.

Not bad software, but essentially abandoned. Avoid.

Speaking as the new owner/developer of Mori, please explain how you consider it to be ruined?

The versions you indicated had problems with old Mori notebooks on Leopard, not new ones. In addition, 1.6.7 was released the day after you posted that criticism and fixed the issue (1.6.6 was released on 2007-11-20, you complained on 11-21, and 1.6.7 was released on 11-22, which was Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S.), and I just released Mori 1.6.9, so updates and bugfixes are still coming along, thank you very much!

Incidentally, people who complain on other websites about these issues don't see them get fixed because I don't see them until much later. I support users who report issues on the Apokalypse website where I have areas for bug fixes, feature requests, and user community fora (

(Also, Apokalypse doesn't mean end of the world. Don't be so melancholic or dramatic!)

Apokalypse ! This is the right word.
Since Jesse Grosjean sold Mori to Apokalypse, this very promising app has been ruined.
1.6.5 and 1.6.6 don't even open files.
I hope TaskPaper does not get the same treatment.

I use DEVONthink Pro Office to keep track of thousands of research papers, but I live in Mori. It is the backbone of my GTD setup (using plugin mGTD), and the place where all bits and pieces of information ends up. Smart folders, definable columns and outlines of outlines are just great.

"A nice app, but a bug in the word count while I was writing in greek made me stop using it"

Was this bug in 2.0 Beta 2? If so could you please report/describe it? Thanks.

It's lovely and HogBay are good guys. I like the ability to have documents and images in there, I like the ability to have outlines of outlines....

I use it to take notes while reading articles & books. Very easy to organise and to retrieve information. Very fast searching engine.

I use to keep myself organized with daily tasks. While it's not as full-featured as something like DEVONThink, it's still pretty flexible.

Another plus is the fact that the developer offers the source for other developers to build enhancements and plugins.
