Password Secure: Any page can be rendered unreadable when the program is in the background, has been inactive for a period of time, or whenever the “lock” is clicked. You may choose to require a password to unlock pages, or not.

Searchable: Pages are searchable by title or content, and an unobtrusive pull-down menu on the notepad allows for quick navigation.

Easy-to-Use: We continue to strive for as intuitive a program as possible. Also, SpiralBound can import your Stickies or SpiralBound data automatically. Also includes automatic check-for-update.

Supported: Have a problem? A question? A suggestion? SpiralBound features thorough documentation, and we are prompt and ever-willing to answer all emails.

    SpiralBound Pro is not intended to eclipse or outdate its little brother, and both products will continue to be actively developed and supported.

Useful: Flip pages, tear them out, and return them to the notepad. Reorder as desired. A seamlessly integrated calculator will solve a mathematical expression typed into any page. Drag pictures or sound clips into any page. Make any word a hyperlink.

There When You Want It: Set any window to float above all open applications, or view every page at once.

And Not When You Don’t: Compact (shade) any window, or hide any notepad entirely for a neat and tidy desktop.
