My preferred style of development is to release new versions frequently, and to make relatively small incremental changes with each release. “Slow but Steady” might be my mantra. This latest release finally implements a custom URL scheme for Notenik. (I first received an email asking for something like this in January of 2020!)

Since Notenik is rather late to the game of managing text files, and since those already using similar sorts of files are probably among those interested in my app, I wanted to talk a bit about how the latest version of Notenik can be used with existing folders full of text files.
