★★★ Suggestions, Bug Reports, etc? ★★★
Honestly, development is glacially slow. I don't have anywhere near as much time as I used to to work on hovernote.
Also I am aware that some of the settings do not persist across app restarts and will fix that at some point.
The app is now free due to the new requirement for me to have my physical address on the app store page if I want to continue selling it.

Perfect for note taking and reminders I use this app for jotting down things I need to remember because it appears on all desktop screens. You can shrink it down to a single line, hide the options bar, and place it at the top of the screen where it won't cover icons or widgets. Beautifully made app.
