CintaNotes is a handy application that offers a convenient manner of helping you write down notes. It’s a powerful tool that doesn’t only let you take notes, but also edit them at any later time or categorize those using tags and sections. Actually, the large number of additional features and functions that this application supports is quite impressive.
For example, it’s also capable of exporting notes to XML and TXT standalone files, it can synchronize the notes across different computers, and it lets you search among the notes with ease. Furthermore, hotkeys are also supported, which means that you can quickly call the app from the tray area with just a key press.

Despite the fact that it comes packed with numerous features and functions, CintaNotes is also easy to use. Its interface is sober, some might say even rather dull, but it’s also straightforward and neat, allowing even complete beginners to use this tool without any problem.

My only issue concerning this program is the fact that it comes with a rather discouraging price. Other similar apps offer pretty much the same features for a smaller price or even for free. Moreover, since you cannot pin down and stick individual notes to the desktop, this tool looks more like a text editor with note organizing functions, and asking for this price for such a tool seems a bit pretentious to me.


  • Can export notes to various file formats.
  • Simple to use.
  • Can tag notes.


  • Pricey.
  • Can not stick individual notes to the desktop, outside of the program's interface.
  • It does not allow setting alarms and reminders.
  • The interface is a bit lackluster.

    I enjoy using CintaNotes note taking manager already for several years! It is really simple and higly effective to use. Hotkey-driven note clipping makes it fast and effortless. Hierarchic tagging helps to build my knowledge base. Very quick and convenient search function and many more useful features. It Is Freemium, so there is a free version with restricted functionality available.

    Elegant minimalist note-taking software. Best of its kind. Also free.
