When you need to quickly jot down some information, what do you do? Reach for a sticky note, or a piece of scrap paper? And what do you do when that piece of paper ends up lost? If you've been thinking that there's no easy way to use a computer for quick note-taking, you're mistaken! Just check out today's discount software promotion, CintaNotes!

CintaNotes lets you quickly save and tag any bits of useful information, just by selecting text and pressing a hotkey. With CintaNotes, you'll never have to worry about losing bits of paper - every note you take is saved, along with the URL of the site that you clipped it from. Best of all, CintaNotes works with any application that can copy text to the clipboard!

When it's time to look up that piece of info, CintaNotes is on the case, bringing up matching results in real-time as you type! You can even search by title, URL, or any combination of tags. The tags can be organized into a tree, making the tagging system extremely powerful. And with tabbed sections it's easy to keep unrelated notes separate, while color-coding of notes helps in organization even further.

If you use online cloud services like Simplenote or Dropbox, you can sync your notes across multiple devices. With Simplenote you will have complete access to your notes on your mobile device, and not just for searching and reading, but also for writing! However if you're not that much into cloud syncing, CintaNotes works in offline mode as well. Small and powerful, CintaNotes can run completely self-contained off of a USB flash drive.

    CintaNotes PRO also supports:
  • - File and image attachements in notes
  • - Linking notes with each other
  • - Full notebook encryption and password protection
  • - Autotagging rules

Trying to decide which version of CintaNotes (CintaNotes PRO License - 1 year upgrades, CintaNotes Lifetime PRO License - Lifetime upgrades) is right for you? Check out the feature comparison matrix and make an informed decision!

Alex Jenter Sorry for replying late, took me awhile to figure out where did the comments go after the promo ended!

@Jin User: Thanks a lot for your purchase! File and image attachments will be very inobtrusive - simply a paper-clip button in the note's title. If you don't use it, it won't be in your way.

@Heidi-Ann: Huge thanks for your kind words and for the recommendation! It's been a pleasure to have you as a customer! Sorry that it took us so long to implement the attachments. They will be released in the very next release ;)

John Hood Great Software. Have been using it for years. Alex is dedicated, focused, and extremely responsive. Worth weight in gold for me in getting instant access without a lot of go-through gates. It is the first item on my routine backup list on my Laptop.

Meg User Thanks for your response about keeping CN safe online and using simplenote, rather than Dropbox for that, although I do not see my original note and your response on here. Unfortunately, the offer available when I made the enquiry has now disappeared.

Alex Jenter @Meg User: Yes, the 60% promotion has ended in the meanwhile - it was time limited, this is BDJ. But don't despair: please drop me a line to support@cintanotes.com, and we'll come up with a solution.

bvssunnydale Hi, is CN more of a (1) PIM or a (2) text editor type program? I'm hoping to save a set of notes on "A," "B,".. "XYZ" but only need them connected and searchable within their particular topics within CN. Also, can the files be indexed by an external program like Copernic (I guess I'm asking if they're saved as txt, rtf, or other common format? Thanks very much.

Alex Jenter @bvssunnydale: Hi and thanks for the question! CN is definitely more of a PIM. It helps you collect and manage information from various sources.

CN lets you link notes with each other using note links, and create searchable subsets of notes using sections and tags.

CN uses SQLite database for storing notes, so I think that most probably it is not searchable by programs like Copernic. But it comes with a very good built-in full-text search engine.

Hope this helps!

Adolphe I'm a user of the free version, and this is in many ways a very smart piece of software. Without getting into details, let's say that it does exactly what you'd like to do, it does it fast and it does not get in the way.

The Bits du Jour permanent offer is all the more welcome since, for all its qualities, Cinta Notes is priced too high. After all, it's nothing but a note-taking program. But it's as expensive as Scrivener, a fully-fledged word processor for professional writers aiming to replace Microsoft Word. Cinta Notes (I think) has a much larger potential market than Scrivener, so could benefit from a lower price.

Also, Cinta Notes is a light note-taking program. It's not Evernote or Microsoft One Note, by any stretch of the imagination. It does not accept images nor Web pages, which severely limits its usefulness nowadays. It does not lend itself to easy integration with other applications.

The free version is usable, but it definitely falls in the category of trial versions in disguise, as opposed to free versions fully doing the job, encouraging you to upgrade to paid-for versions if you're tempted by the extra functions.

The free version does not print, for instance. What free note-taking program does not print ? It does not link to files, it does not link to other notes, it does not export to HTML... (and the export options of the paid-for version are severely limited anyway).

Alex Jenter @Adolphe: Thanks for your comment! I must say we have tried lower prices and unfortunately they don't work: the inflow of customers doesn't get larger and the price point now is near the minimal point for the project to survive. You might not believe me but it's true: CN users are not that price sensitive, but their number is limited. Also please don't underestimate the complexity of the software, it has a lot of functionality under the seemingly simple interface. Just take the tag hierarchy and autotagging rules.

About the limitations of the free version: we do regularly pull paid features down to the free version. In the next version Simplenote sync will become free, for example. Also many people have told me that free version has more than enough features for them, but they bought a license just to support the project.

Anyhow, thanks again for your kind words about CN and I hope that it will get so popular that we can afford to lower the prices.

Adolphe @ Alex Jenter,

I have now read the post you made on your site two years ago about your financials, and I was gobsmacked to see how little revenue Cinta brought in for you. I do hope the situation has changed for the better since then. What else can I say, except that your software deserves much, much better. It does get things right in a way almost no other software does, regardless of category.

Okay, just one more suggestion (not the main area of possible enhancements, but still) : bring preferences together in a single dialog box, with an Apply button, so that all settings can be adjusted in one go, and their results be observed before being confirmed, instead of the present back-and-forths which are necessary with the drop-down menus (View / Colour Theme and Options).

With my best wishes for success.

Alex Jenter @Adolphe: Sorry for replying so late, the comment system here on BDJ is weird - can't comment on Everyday promos when a 2-day promotion is running or being prepared.

Thanks for the kind words and wishes, we are doing the best we can to make CN better and to get more people to use it. Thanks for the suggestion, it is already planned for version 4.0 btw.

Alex Jenter @Dan Amiel: I've suggested a solution, but need to know that you agree to it. Please contact me at support [at] cintanotes.com, we'll work something out.

@Adolphe: Yes, Simplenote certainly has limitations. What import format do you think would be the best to implement?

@John Hood : John, thanks so much for the praise, greatly appreciated!!

@Adolphe: Re limits: Yes, "barely acceptable" for many is probably not good enough. But this also depends on the hardware. And when people ask about limits, its difficult to tell what they really mean.
Also I thought that search performance is more important than saving performance, since usually you save a note one time, but search many times.
