Description

Notational Velocity is a simple but surprisingly powerful notebook application.

There's three fields: the title field, a list of notes, and the body field. Type a search string into the title field. The list of notes will be filtered as you type. If you're looking for an existing note, just select it from the list. If you want to create a new note, just hit tab to go down to the body field and enter the text for that title.

Like most search-centric applications, it works better the shorter your notes are and the more standardized your vocabulary for them is. Because it searches body as well as title, you can even add del.icio.us-style tags to your notes to make retrieval even easier.

Hacks

Notational Velocity is especially well-suited for:

  • Serial numbers
  • Feature requests/questions for software
  • Tech specs for various hardware you own
  • Usernames/passwords for various websites or services
  • Account numbers and other necessary info for bills

Essentially, information you need to call up quickly but not very frequently and don't need to cross-reference.
