Vesper is a simple and elegant tool for collecting notes, ideas, things to do — anything you want to remember. Use tags to group related items into playlist-like collections. Vesper imposes no system; organize and curate your notes whatever way comes naturally to you. Eschewing complications, Vesper’s focus is on how it feels to use it.

Great looking app from John Gruber, Brent Simmons and Dave Wiskus.

  • I wonder how something like this differs from something like Day One. Just the fact that Day One is available on all devices and computers seems to be a greater win for me since I can update it no matter what I’m sitting at.

      It sure is more ‘generic’ than Day One, which is very specifically for diaries; pretty free organization and tagging make it, theoretically, appropriate for many purposes.

      I said ‘theoretically’ because in its current state it may be ‘great looking’, but otherwise too limited. No Dropbox or iCloud support, no iPad or Mac version, no Markdown support, or at least lists… I also hope that this ‘flat’ design is no indication of where iOS 7 is going. Having to guess what is a touch target and what isn’t… is no progress, it’s form over function.

      • I’m surprised it doesn’t support Markdown, since that was developed by John Gruber.
