about CintaNotes May 2013

The devs of this 'newcomer' have been working hard at improving this program.
They are open to suggestions of which quite a few have already been implemented over the past year.

I would advise Linux users to subscribe and give their opinions here:

about CintaNotes Jun 2011

I've used everything from Evernote to Pasteboard; but nothing has proven quite so handy as CintaNotes. It is a great tool, both aesthetically and functionally. Notes are quick to make and edit, it is lighting fast in terms of performance, has tagging functionality, provides the options for backup, and a pretty yet minimalist interface doesn't hurt either. I find use for it daily - saving lists, movies or albums i want to download, books i want to read, quotes i feel like saving, ideas I need to jot down - basically, this is one sweet application. Highly recommended, if you're the sort of person who deals with too much information on a daily basis, go ahead and get it now - you won't be disappointed!

Updated to version 1.4; still free; loads of feature added; the best simple note taker out there.

@climb4fun & malhaarkale: although such a feature would be very welcome, it's not essential on a basic note taker; it would make it more of a filer and archiver app... (you can have active links to image files in your notes, though).
