Tot (iOS) is on sale now

I’ve been enjoying using Tot on my macs, but I was always hesitant to buy the iOS version because of its price.
But now it is on sale (50%), so it may be a good time to buy this app. Probably I will end up buying it.

So I’m posting it for those who may be interested.


I love Tot and was happy to pay full freight for the iOS version. Sounds like a good time to get in if you’re on the fence about it.


May I ask a silly question? What is Tot? I have a bad habit of buying things on sale, so would like to look at it more…:grin:

Ok. Never mind, I think I found it. Thank you for the post. I can finally move my random code snippets to one tool.

Agree it was worth every penny…

I actually regretted buying it. It’s pretty buggy and doesn’t get much updates at all. Now with Quick Notes I don’t see it being useful unless you really want markdown.

I really like it, but I go through waves of using it and not using it as much, depending how busy I am — but more, depending how many different projects I’m working on.

It’s nice to have a single place to jot things down; then I can move them to my task list, calendar or permanent notes when I have a moment to breathe.


Tot is mainly my “to buy” list for the grocery store, Target, book store, etc. I do tuck away a few other items it might be nice to know when I’m out and about. I have had excellent luck making a note on the Mac and having it quickly and reliably appear on my iPhone. Works better than any other app or scheme that I have tried.

It’s currently listed at $10. I quite like it on the desktop, but not enough to shell out that much money, when there are other options to do similar things.

Apparently I already own Tot. Haha. It never sparked joy for me. I think the tabbed colors solve a problem I’ve never perceived (multiple stickies taking up too much room on the screen), and I’m not really looking for constraints in a scratchpad. Tot as some kind of larger Hemingway-style editor that lets you work on seven stories at once could be awesome; I need a lot of help there.

Seems pretty late, but I just started using Tot and liking it as a lightweight scratchpad.

However, I can see the menu bar icon that they show in the App Store pics for some reason, is that feature still available for others?

Weird “Menu Bar Icon” was not showing up for me. I re-installed and restarted machine and now it shows. Thanks @Stephen_C
