Can you recommend a good offline multi-platform (or just only Mac and Windows) diary application? One that allows different entries which also can be tagged.

I recommend Rednotebook - free and opensource. I use it and I am satisfied. For Windows, there is also portable version available on :-)

it looks really nice. the only problem i see, is that for using it in osx snow leopard I tried to get the macports version an failed to execute (some python problem) and then there is some guide for installing it from source… – flow Jul 27 '11 at 13:47
so good luck! I cannot help you with Mac as I only have experience with Windows/Linux and also almost do not have experience with installing from source. So it is up to you. :-) – Juhele Jul 28 '11 at 6:21

Evernote is always the popular one.

Too bad OneNote isn't on the Mac yet. That would be my favorite. While there is a Webapp version, it doesn't cut it for us hardcore OneNote users.

yeah, forgot to say I am looking for an offline app – flow Jul 27 '11 at 16:53
Works just as well offline. You don't have to use the online sync. – surfasb Jul 27 '11 at 20:03
