The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 2.0
CintaNotes has been created to help you easily take notes. It doesn’t only let you quickly note down any piece of text information, but also edit it afterwards, organize it using tags and sections, or export it to TXT and XML files.
I like that its interface is straightforward, intuitive and has a sober, pleasant-looking design. Other note-taking applications have intricate interfaces with all kinds of fancy yet unnecessary elements that made them look a bit childish. That’s not the case with CintaNotes. There's also a large number of handy additional features that make this note-taking application a really helpful one. It can, for example, synchronize the taken notes between multiple computers, let you search notes in a fast and convenient manner (displaying the search results “as-you-type”), or quickly paste and save text paragraphs from other applications. Support for hotkeys is also provided. This means that you can keep CintaNotes hidden in the taskbar or in the tray area for most of the time and call it with a simple key press whenever you need it.
In my opinion, CintaNotes is one of the best note-taking application that you can find, especially if you don't care about the looks and more about practicability, and let’s be honest, if you’re willing to ignore the fact that there are other applications that offer pretty much the same features for free, while CintaNotes requires a paid registration.
