Alex Jenter, many thanks for your response. I was using Allmynotes but eventually gave up on it. Then I used URL Gather which is essentially a portable bookmark app but it can bookmark files. So I was using it to link to my notes. Unfortunately it crashed twice because something was corrupted and twice the backup file wouldn't run because of that - everything had to be re-input. Needing something dependable I tried Cinta Notes and I found it excellent and it hasn't let me down. Thank you again for the the updated offer.

I uninstalled my old version and rebooted. Every time I try open it, it wants a password, so now I can't even open the program to put in my license which I received by email.

Any suggestions please?

Joanne Clark, if you didn't use a password it means that your notebook has become corrupt. Please contact me at support@ cintanotes.com and I will help you recover it. In the meanwhile, you can click on "Notebook..." and then create a new notebook to be able to take new notes.

Third time I install this and third time I use it and say "meh..." Sorry to the dev but Cinta Notes is bland!

I wish it had books> sections> pages like Onenote but without the dumb "plaster your notes anywhere" I want the beauty of Onenote and the functionality of the other one with the elephant!

I want to be able to change colors and add or remove icons to everything! I want to make my notes as weird, colorful, emoticon ridden as a teen school girl's or as plain and professional as I want. And what's the idea with the timid theme colors? I click Red Theme and I get "sad pinkish"!

I also want a jumplist, Tomboy has one and is the best features I've seen in note taking software.

Thanks for your attention I hope the dev sees this.

-Evernotes, I think it's called Evernotes-

Further to my post re not being able to upgrade basic version to pro: I have discovered that the portable version does not upgrade to PRO if you currently have a full PRO version installed on your PC (at least in my case where I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium). However, I registered another download at the read.me URL (in case the serial number was different for each download) and found that using that on another PC on which Cinta Notes was not installed allowed me to upgrade the portable version to PRO (the serial number is identical for both versions).

I have read the EULA and it does not explicitly place a restriction on the number of copies of the software which can be used. So I don't think Cinta are offering a choice of installing either a full or a portable version. Using both seems to be OK given the licence is granted to the user and not to any device.

Perhaps Alex Jenter, the developer, can comment on this to ensure my usage is legitimate.

Colin, yes, CintaNotes is licensed to the user. You can use it on any number of your PCs.

I am collecting a lot of snippets from documents and books. It is tedious to swipe, copy, paste to notepad, scroll down, repeat for next, etc.

This software installed easily on Win 10, followed directions and license installed easily.

Initial problem: it wouldn't accept a text with F-12 which operates my screen brightness. Any variation of F-12 (alt F-12, ctl+alt+F-12, etc.) did not work.

Fooling around with Options > Hotkey in the software menu, I accidentally noticed that the hotkey changed when hit a different key on my keyboard. So I selected ctl+down arrow and saved it. Bingo! It worked.

Tested with a series of copy actions. The first opened CintaNotes and copied in with ctl+down arrow. All the rest of the copy actions followed. I was initially put off by the fact that each copy was headed with "Giveaway of the Day, Cinta Notes Pro...etc etc.

My notes still needed to be in notepad So on the opened CintaNotes I did ctl+A then ctl+C, then ctl+V in an empty Notepad window. Bingo.. all my notes without the headers appeared in notepad, just as they would have if I used the previous tedious method.

This is a definite time saver and a keep for me.

I have an earlier version from GOTD and I just want to mention here that I am very impressed with the communication I receive regarding updates from the software designer, Alex Jenter. He is constantly working to improve and perfect this software and then keeping me 'in the loop'. That alone speaks volumes to me of this company's credibility and attention to detail. I can only say that about two or three other software programs I use, and I paid big money for those.
Thank you, Alex Jenter.

FYI, from the help FAQ for Simplenote:

https://simplenote.com/help/

...regarding the above-mentioned sync feature "...synchronize notes with Simplenote for mobile access...":

"Are my notes encrypted in storage?

In terms of security, Simplenote works a lot like other popular online services such as Gmail and Facebook. Your personal information is protected by a strict Privacy Policy. But due to the need for searching your notes from the web, the contents must remain unencrypted while in storage so the software can find your search terms. For this reason we recommend not using Simplenote to store anything particularly sensitive.

Unlike a lot of other services, however, by default your notes in Simplenote are always encrypted when they’re in transit across a network. This is important. It’s when your personal information is most vulnerable. We believe that all modern services should provide this level of protection by default."

A reasonable policy for sharing, say, team collaboration project information, or when working on articles to be published, or just about anything.

Personally, however, I would not sync betweeen devices (via Simplenotes) anything financial, medical, legal, etc.; i.e., anything that you would not want a potential Simplenote website hacker to gain access to and sell on the underground market.

HMarx, that's a good point, thanks. Note that syncing with Simplenote in CintaNotes is optional.

I have to say, that clipping the registration email and having Cinta recognize the registration info when I opened the help/about page was a neat trick. Clean interface (unlike AllMyNotes Organizer) and I already feel 'familiar' with this tool. I hope the reveal of more neat tricks continues.

I have found this to be an excellent piece of software. Having a previous install of an earlier version Pro 3.8 I thought I would try the portable version with this offer. Am I right in thinking that this portable offer provides only the Basic and not the Pro version? Sadly I found that inputting the serial number does not upgrade it to the Pro version, so I've had to delete it and have now installed the full version to let me have the Pro features.

Nevertheless many thanks to Cinta Software and GOTD for this excellent offering!

Reply   |   Comment by Colin  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Colin, portable starts as 10 day pro trial, which reverts to basic free edition after the 10 days trial. can't say if the giveaway license works with the portable edition or not since I didn't need the pro edition and never ended up using the program, as I used allmynotes instead.

Colin, the key is a full PRO key valid for version 3.11. If it doesn't register, please try running the software as administrator (probably an issue with writing into Program Files).

Reply   |   Comment by Amorina  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Amorina, if you install it into same location then yes, it will overwrite the 3.7 and pick up your notes automatically (it will make a backup of your notebook before upgrading the format so that you can go back to 3.7 if necessary). If you wish, you can install a portable 3.11 version just to take it for a test drive.

So how is this better than the FREE One Note 2016 and it's Chrome Web Clipper that clips everything from text to videos and syncs them across all my devices, PC, Laptop and Android phone? (And iThing, if I had one)

Reply   |   Comment by Mark CM  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Mark CM, for example, can OneNote assign tags automatically based on presence of some word in the note? CintaNotes can.

Reply   |   Comment by Alex Jenter (CintaNotes Developer)  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Alex Jenter (CintaNotes Developer), Is that it? Sorry, but that hardly makes it anywhere near as good and functional as One Note. And you can still use tags in One Note. Looks like One Note is the winner ... really.

Reply   |   Comment by Mark CM  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-7)

Alex Jenter (CintaNotes Developer), Actually, just being able to sync across all my devices alone makes it the winner. That capability is pretty much a "must have" in this day and age. Same as Evernote ... but that's not free for more than 3 devices.

Reply   |   Comment by Mark CM  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Mark CM, one win factor for me is the program have portable version, the program and database can be carried on flashdrive or any portable drive so it can avoid the need to use cloud service for sync

Reply   |   Comment by Vermeilia  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Mark CM, OneNote loses by default, being a Microsoft product. Their legalese is huge, impenetrable, and usually littered with things I really should know, but have no chance of knowing, being a completely normal person.

I have no idea how much of my stuff they keep because they say they have the right to it. And I have no idea how much of my information they resell or use themselves to make more money. I'm tired of large corporations giving me 'free' things. None of it is.

I'd rather go the old fashioned way and simply copy files than letting someone like Microsoft handle my syncs.Which is more or less what I do now.

CintaNotes is portable. Best solution to keep me for me without feeding some algorithm everything about me so they're better equipped to make me spend more money.

Vermeilia, Nah. Sorry. Still a lose. Not being able to clip any media from the web and not being accessible across all devices makes it pretty much a useless 1995 style relic.

Mark CM, I had some of the same questions regarding the usability of CN vs others on the market, as I've tried so many products for information management. I think the positive aspect of CN is it's simplicity. It's not meant to be an "everything" tool (see Fran's reply to comment #1), and that keeps it focused, simple and light. Those coming from RightNote, Keynote or even EssentialPIM may love CN. Those who keep notes in text files might find CN's auto-tagging to be a digital lifesaver.

For those of us who need the bells, whistles and more, there are lots and lots of free and inexpensive options available (I'm flowing between Notion, DB Paper, Workflowy and even Dynalist -- the first two being my most-used options, but all very good). I also have a heavy archive in Evernote. But these options are more complex and involved than some users may prefer.

Mark CM,

Different people have different needs. I tried many note-taking programs, and dismissed One Note right away, because the free version compels you to store your notes on Microsoft's cloud, where Microsoft can read them. The paid-for version, on the other hand, is horrendously expensive.

Besides, I don't have any "devices". Just a computer, so no sync needs. I found Cinta Notes uniquely able to clip information from the Web with all its meta data (links, date, title...), store it and search it. It's priceless for knowledge management. There might be other programs with similar capabilites, but I have not found any.

Cinta Notes is currently a text-based program, but then, text is where serious information is. If you need to retrieve images or video, this is made easy because Cinta Notes saves all links, too. So they are but a click away.

Mark CM, Frankly I think this is a rather pointless discussion, seems that you've already made up your mind. If you're happy with OneNote, that's great. It means it fits your needs better. I have no problem with that.

Using the portable version that included on the zipped on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 playing with it a while no crash or error happened, the program is very light on resource

the Hotkey for taking notes is really convenient, the program is focused on text, Picture not supported but can attach the file on the note, the software can not show any picture thumbnail that attached, so if u have lot of pics attached on your note it will be hard to tell what picture there

Overall the software is great especially if u working a lot with text

Thank you for the reply.
If you include pictures in future, do it optionally pls.
Some users may prefer without pictures for smaller size of database files.

(Thank you of course for the generous offer here once again!
Integration of sync feature with Simplenote for mobile access, is super feature too!).

nek4d, yes sure it will be optional - just don't attach picture. Including pictures upon web clipping will be optional as well. And thanks for your kind words!

Vermeilia,
Hi, to add to this - looking at previous (mostly positive) reviews of CN here on GOTD - one line from Developer worth remembering to avoid possible confusion is this, quote: 'please note that CN is not a text editor, it is a tool for capturing, organizing, and finding information'..
In my view that's in a nutshell what to expect from this Tool!! Or, wish it went further, but stayed 'light on it's feet'?:)
