logoCintaNotes Portable 1.8.4 Rev 2 has been released. CintaNotes is a lightweight note-taking app that lets you quickly save and tag any useful information that you come across or just need to jot down. This release fixes an issue with portablizing custom database paths and minimizes the risk of data loss when upgrading after an app crash. Note that previous CintaNotes settings will be reset, but all of your data will be preserved. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. It's freeware for personal use. Commercial licensing is available.

CintaNotes is made available with permission from the publisher

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the Platform.


ScreenshotClip text from anywhere by selecting it and hitting the hotkey (CTRL-F12 by default) or copying it to the clipboard. CintaNotes automatically saves the text and its source URL, and you don't even have to install a plug-in to integrate it with your web browser. Retrieving information is also trivial: just open CintaNotes and start typing to search. More sophisticated search criteria are supported, like searching by title or by URL the note was taken from. You can use tags for note organization, and later use tag union, intersection and subtraction filters to quickly find what you need. Live note synchronization is supported with the help of free online services such as DropBox or SugarSync.

For the curious, this release keeps the cintanotes.db in the Data directory rather than moving it back and forth. It also updates the CintaNotes settings file to be UCS-2 LE rather than the obscure UCS2-LE w/o BOM format it defaults to, allowing us to portablize paths within it so you can save your database to a custom location.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
