CintaNotes lets you quickly save and tag any useful information that you come across or just need to jot down.

Clip text from anywhere. Just select it and press the hotkey

The text-clipping "magic" works in any application that can copy text to 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!

Fast as-you-type searching

Retrieving information is also trivial: just open CintaNotes and start typing! Only notes containing the typed phrase remain in the list. More sophisticated search criteria are supported, like searching by title or by URL the note was taken from.

Powerful tagging system

You can use tags for note organization, and later use tag union, intersection and subtraction filters to quickly find what you need.

Synchronize notes across multiple PCs

Live note synchronization is supported with the help of free online services such as DropBox or SugarSync.

Run it from your flash drive

CintaNotes is a totally self-contained application, meaning that you can put it on a flash drive and run it directly from there. In this way, your notes will always be with you.
