no chance of catching a virus or getting malware

Not if I lend him a USB drive to view on his computer, some nice photos or videos and the USB drive is full of virus & malware.

#12 ric,

I also don't get the meaning of this Vole software. Besides MS Office there's the F*REE Open Office too. Doesn't it do everything which this Vole does and much much more?

To 11. Buckingham

Are you not aware that most companies were taken over by gov's companies? And that when a company is writing an encryption software they allready have all the decryption software's they need to decrypt your sooooo precious, by you encrypted, data???? And that's the same story for new-born companies that are just starting off with their new encryption software.

If you really are still thinking all encryption software is not hackable, then you better take another look at the whole. Gov's are interested in people's secret's. I'm sure you are well aware of that. So why you are still thinking you're encrypted data is safe at the cloud, even when it's stored at your own pc?

Most people don't even know that when you have the internet cable attached to your pc, even when the pc is shut down entirely, hacker's (so gov especially!!!) can enter your pc with all the ease there is!

I'm sure today's GAOTD software is one of the gov's. I'm seeing this sort of program's more and more. A lot of the website's that allways had the best intension's recommending or giving away software, are now suddenly shifting. Allmost all the software they advice us to use now, are the ones where we can store a lot of our private data in.

So take your pick, people! And make a choice wether you like to keep going on like this and stuff your "belonging's" at the big street or to fight for your privacy and shut down your internet, mobile's, pad's and tablet's, and try to become the bosses of your own lives again. I know I will.

For the record, the $80 annual fee for this software allows you to install it on 2 computers, so it's actually only $40 a year per computer.

That makes it only half as bad!

$80 a year?
You can buy a Microsoft Office 365 for around this price!
OneNote (like this GOTD) + Word, PowerPoint, etc.

5 computers as well.

Evernote is free and works just as well.

@Buckingham
NSA requires backdoors for all encryption programs; this has been the norm for years before the heroic Snowden revelations. In addition every MSFT software has backdoors for the US fed.gov; think PC, Chromebook, tablet, cellphone, server, OnStar, grids, gmail, Yahoo!, Outlook.com, etc. All encryption can be cracked in 3 minutes, or less.

Don't be so paranoid; the feds can only track your actual location within 1 meter--close enough for a drone hit. They have bullets that seek your body temp (no line of sight required), the ability to see through walls (numerous methods), can hear fly wings flapping or your heart beat miles away through obstacles in the middle, count your wrinkles from a pic taken from anyone of the 169 secret spy satellites watching the USA every minute of every day and remove every piece of evidence of your existence in less than 24 hours. The fed.gov is the most dangerous entity known in the universe.

If you are concerned with privacy then your issue is with Democrats and Republicans, not software. The only trustworthy politician is a dead one. (This is a fact, not a suggestion to act.) Your neighbor could/would run the government more Constitutionally.

I concur with the 'out there' critics; it is not surprising at all, to any of us, that some major corporation is being hacked, identities and credit card numbers stolen (e.g. Target Stores USA just prior to Christmas) or proprietary materials copied before you can acquire a patent or any kind of certification. I have quoted the CEO of Google before and I will again, “The Internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn't understand, the largest experiment in anarchy that we have ever had. ~Eric Schmidt. In this case, you can always find a freeware program that has ultimately the same functions; Giovanni is the one to watch for that. If you are stuck on a shareware program wait three to six months, a better one will replace it, or it will become freeware, ergo no need to pay eighty dollars. Some software developers will add the word ‘PRO’ with the hope of some sort of remuneration.
Thank you GAOD - Happy 2014!

#9 garfield asks: Why should I save my Notes in the “cloud”

I think that garfield objects to the need to store information online with Evernote. But one do not have to.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evernote

"
On supported operating systems, Evernote stores and edits the user's notes on their local machine.

Users with Internet access and an Evernote account can also have their notes automatically synchronized with a master copy held on Evernote's servers. This approach lets a user access and edit their data across multiple machines and operating system platforms, but still view, input and edit data when an Internet connection is not available.
"

The storing of info online is optional.

I'm still using Treepad Business Edition that I bought years ago for about $30. It's been updated several times, and the updates are free. Feature wise it's a powerhouse. Plus, there are templates, plugins and add-ons to make it do more. For faster, simpler note-making, there are compatible lightweight free editions for Windows and Linux. No nagging popups, either.

Today's giveaway looks to have good functionality, but the $80/year string attached is a deal breaker.

I have to agree with most others regarding this software, I used GAOTD, I do not want a "free" one-year license, that is not "free". I use a lot of freeware apps that I find on this website, but these days more and more vendors are charging the "renewable license" fee, I am at the point where I am "fee'd out". I do not mind downloading an app for free in exchange for making suggestions, testing in order to help a vendor improve their app. But, I am fee'd out, I pay fees in every aspect of my life and am tired of it. I will pass on this offering. Thank you.

The CLOUD is NOT a secure area ANYWHERE. Why would you store your info out to somewhere that you don't know REALLY where it is?

Even the data on your local hard drive is NOT secure if you are connected via an ISP/IP. ANYONE, no matter what encryption or security you have installed, IS ACTUALLY SECURE........duh. WHY? Because there are evil people out there THAT LIVE JUST TO BREAK YOUR SECURITY, via, hacking tools, worms, and other software apps that can troll the Internet for OPEN PORTS and NO SECURITY, OR BOTH.

Why would anyone store their data/info on THE CLOUD IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM???????

Just think about it people: THE CLOUD. What does that word mean?
That data/info IS OUT THERE FOR ANYONE TO GET, regardless of whether YOU THINK IT IS ENCRYPTED OR SECURE. NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING is secure, even on your own hard drive. And if you BELIEVE it is, AS I SAID BEFORE, YOU ARE EITHER STUPID OR DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER.

So, if you don't care about security, hey, GO FOR IT. Put your stuff out there and then later find out where else it is on the web.
Either you are stupid or don 't know any better or you actually believe this stupid communist president of the USA who is lying to you about Obamacare and HOW SECURE THEIR WEB SITE IS. LOL LOL ROFL.

There are some VERY EXCELLENT DATA MINING TOOLS (that I have seen and have seen used by some of my online hacker friends) that can grab data from THE CLOUD, your precious secure storage out there in la-la land AND AFTER THEY GET IT, THEY LAUGH OUT LOUD FOR HOURS not because they have it, but because you were stupid enough to actually believe your data was secure. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL ROFL.....I can't take it anymore. Some of you people commenting here are just plain looney.

This looks interesting, but I must agree with many that have posted before me; the prospect of getting it nicely organized and useful only to then have to pony up (a somewhat fantastic....) $80 in twelve months for a 1 year license seems a bit ridiculous. Nice try though -- a year from now it would be like a 'stick-up' unless you wanted to lose all your work, time, and effort related to this software.

This software does seems to have some added aspects compared to something like Evernote, but given the financial encumbrance presented by Vole, combined with the ability to continue using software like Evernote even without a paid subscription, I think I would pass on this before even getting started.

Hopefully in the future you will re-evaluate the sticker shock.

#9 garfield asks: Why should I save my Notes in the “cloud”

People who work on multiple computers such as home pc, mobile device and work pc find it very convenient to use the Cloud. It is also a useful way to collaborate with others by sharing information. Companies like Apple, Google, Dropbox, etc are providing Cloud services because it has become so popular with users.

I rarely use the cloud myself because I can function without it but I understand why many people do use it. Those that are fearful of their data in the Cloud should not use it but it is going to get more difficult to work without it as technology progresses.

If something needs to be protected from spying than it should be highly encrypted or should not be on a computer connected to the internet.

I have a friend who has privacy 100%, no chance of catching a virus or getting malware 24/9.

How?

He is still running XP at home and has no internet connection. Runs the MS Office that came with the PC years ago. I cannot get him to connect even using a Free Modem account like NETZERO or JUNO. I have to call him o the telephone to contact him...and it's a flip phone.

Yep, he's safe.

no offense, but products that are free for a limited time only dont really belong on a give away site. I will not be downloading this because of that. What if I loved it? Then I pay EIGHTY bucks a year for it? This is not even the type of software I would pay $80 once for.

It does not serve a useful purpose.
And that is not even considering the $80 per year fee.

MsWord has been able to do all these for the longest time.
You only need to pay ONCE to buy the Microsoft Office Suite.
For students, the price is very cheap.

If you're put off using cloud storage because you're worried about your data being 'out there' - there's a simple solution - pre-encryption. Your files are encrypted before they're copied to online storage. If hackers gain access to the remote servers, your files are safe as the decryption key is known only to you. 'BoxCryptor' is a good example of pre-encryption software - it's free for private use and is very easy to set up and use.

# 9. garfield ???


What do you refer to?

Privacy is almost IMPOSSIBLE online, unless you are very very clever...

Even HTTPS connections can be intercepted and decrypted
by authorities (not just NSA) who spoof the authentic site's certificate: did you know that? Of course not!

So what? If you are worried to open an account (how about using disposable email and fake info?), then I recommend you do a thing: forget INTERNET!

LOL!

Nice try Giovanni, but why should I open an account with some unknown Software company? Why should I save my Notes in the "cloud" - now thats save! Sure are your recommendations free, money wise, but on the other hand you give away your privacy - so pls don't compare apples with grapefruits - as you always do........

Nice software...does what it claims very well...but only 1 year license and 80 $ per year?

Dude, this is not a site overcrowded by super professional people (journalists, for instance) hired by big Corporations, thus willing to pay such a steep fee...LOL!

So I'm afraid you missed your target here, since most of GAOTD visitors are just home users (students, workers, pensioners etc...) who cannot afford to pay big bucks for a product like this.

And besides that...

Come on... EVERNOTE is FREE and does much more things than this GAOTD (OCR for instance): is the developer of this GAOTD aware of that? It looks like he's not!

http://evernote.com

But to add PDFs, images, audio and video files, snapshots of web pages, and pretty much anything else in a single and searchable interface, you can also use the excellent freeware ZOTERO without paying a dime:

http://www.zotero.org

Or just use the FREE & PORTABLE version of this GAOTD (go to its home page to download it).

Finally, to organize your notes with interactive and planned text outlines, linking any piece of information together into a more organized hierarchical tree-based structure (great way to keep track of your notes, or to prepare speeches and presentations), just use this pretty unknown but extremely powerfu FREE GEM, kissing (once again) your wallet goodbye:

http://www.rynelf.com/redhaven

Giovanni's final verdict: Thumbs UP to the software but 2 THUMBS DOWN to its policy price.

I've checked the calendar, and it's not April Fool's Day. I've checked the developer's website, and it's not a misprint on GOTD. They actually are charging $80 for a year's license for this.

Another thing I found on the website is the version history of the program since the initial release (3.7.30912) on 12 September this year. The current version (3.10.31218) is the tenth one. So many updates in such a short space of time suggests to me that this is not what might be called a 'mature' product, and that the customers might end up doing the developers' Beta testing and bug reporting. And why was the initial version 3.7? Call me old-fashioned, but don't you usually start at 1.0? Unless, of course, you want the customer to think that the program is more mature than it really is.

Why would I want software with the name Vole, which means 'rodent'? Seems an odd, unsavory choice.

I already have the fab (and smoothly named) Evernote for these same tasks. So I'll pass today. But thanks anyway.

Installed on a Win 8.1 64 Bit System without problems. Registered via "Renew" button.

And hmmmm...

Looked at the VMC example. A at least for me cluttered interface. I think I understood the basic rules.

8 symbols try to tell me how many videos, web links or you tube videos are in my current note. Why that? 12 videos, 15 you tube videos, 36 web links, 78 pictures, 5 Audio files, 10 file path, 5 internet audio files...

If I want to see statistics, I'll click on a statistic button, not permanently cluttering the interface in the top line!

A separate button shows permanently, that the software is running in 64 Bit mode. Why that? But it is missing the standard "exit" button in the first left choice button. Who tries to invent new user interface rules?

And then...

Tried to write a short note : "Tested VMC today at ..." with the web link to the site. Failed to do so! A more complex way to add a simple text note is needed. Yes, I do know some diary products and link collection programs and I am familiar with computers ...

Then again a pop up window : "selftest okay". Stupid System.

Uninstalled.

This looks really interesting,
but whenever I see the one year license I am instantly put off, Especially when I go to see how much it would be to buy the full License and find the Cheapest one they have is $80.00

$80.00 REALLY???

This isn't software, it's an "annual-subscription service"!:-(

I love the idea of viewing docs/video in the top frame and being able to write below, and I suspect it would actually speed me up a bit, but there is no way I will pay $80/year for this. That sort of cash would enable me to buy 2 decent quality monitors and use my existing software.

If I subscribed to this, plus MS Office and a couple of others, I would be paying a substantial amount annually forever, just to write docs and view PDFs and videos. Pass.
