CintaNotes is a tag-based, text-only personal notes manager for collecting bits and pieces of information such as thoughts and ideas, article excerpts, quotes, research, etc. A global hot key (by default Ctrl-F12) clips pieces of text from other applications such as web browsers or any local program. The window title becomes title/subject of the note and the highlighted text selected becomes the body.
It is useful to quickly take down and tag any piece of useful text that you come across and quickly organize by date, keywords, title, link and note size. A search tool searches the entire database with search keyword highlighting. 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.
[advt]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. It is a totally self-contained application, meaning that you can put it on a flash drive and run it directly from there.
