CintaNotes - note taking app (beta)
Posted 17 April 2009 - 06:34 AM
<!-- m -->http://cintanotes.com/<!-- m --> - currently in beta. At some point there
will be a commercial version but a freeware one will also remain
available. If you like it and register on the Cinta forum while
it is in Beta you get a free commercial license 8)
It is portable, if you copy text from a browser it includes the page
title and URL, you can add tags, quick filter as you type search etc.

But it gets better with every new update. Highly recommended!

I don't really have too many issues with it, and it is still in 'beta' or early release stage, and is already better than a number of other free solutions. I like it.

- any text editor you like to create multiple .txt files
- which you save directly via AHK and command line into a .zip file via 7-zip
- then you need a powerful indexing tool which can also search in text files in .zip files
- then you can decide what kind of tagging dating and formatting you want to use in your text files and implement some ready to use commands to search for those via your indexing search tool
My question is what can the above mentioned tools better?

Well, as long as there is a fast indexing application which can also search, edit, re-save in .txt files which are in .zip files you can just use this principle for any note taking ideas, of course combined with AutoHotkey would make sense to improve the speed and workflow according to your wishes.
I do not know any software that keep data in .txt notes in single .zip file, unlikely there is any. You may try Total Commander (it is able to search in .txt files within .zip files), but I really don't see how it can be useful - to keep data in .zip archive...

Good application, but too restricted in free version. I chose Techno Notes Manager. It is totally free, at least for now.
For me Cinta isn't so powerfull... My choice is AllMyNotes Organizer. Clear and functional - does all what I need for notekeeping. By the way, it's available in freeware edition! Application homepage - <!-- w -->www.vladonai.com<!-- w -->

If I chose such application, the least I expect is to be able to get my notes even after I loose the application...
I tried Evernote but I have hard time to love it, partly because it tries to do everything and more (OCR?).
I didn't know Smereka (thanks, fred, for the link!), but it seems nice: done well, open source (based on wxWidgets, so theoretically portable), using a standard database (SQLite), allowing export, no restriction on pure text like so much "free edition" of such softwares.
I think I will give it a test run.
Another similar program is NeoMem, open-source too, but based on MFC (yech) and apparently development has stopped. But a nice little application too.
