Easy-to-use notes organizer that runs on low CPU and RAM, providing users with simple options and an advanced configuration mode. Flashnote is a straightforward piece of software that enables you to write down ideas quickly in a user-friendly environment, while you can carry out your daily tasks under normal circumstances.
The installation procedure is rapid and uneventful, without requiring special user intervention. Once the program is initialized, it creates an icon in the system tray area with fast access to its options.
The working environment is minimalistic and neatly organized. Special emphasis is not put on the appearance of Flashnote, but on ease of use.
You can create a new note by inputting its name, add it to the top or make it a child note. Evidently, child notes are built in the same manner. Items in the notes tree can be deleted, sorted, renamed, or moves to another position.
As far as the text area goes, Flashnote provides only few standard options to help you personalize it. Thus, you can enable word wrapping mode, format the font, as well as choose a font and background color. It is possible to insert new lines, the current date and time, as well as to edit or recreate the menu. Plus, you can use a local or global search function.
Flashnote’s frame is able to stay on top of other windows and to minimize to the system tray area. Moreover, you can save the notes to plain text (TXT format), backup, synchronize and export the database, switch to another language for the GUI, make the app automatically run at Windows startup, as well as assign a global hotkey for bringing up the Flashnote window, among others.
The program is very light on the system resources, using a minimal quantity of CPU and RAM. It has good response time to commands and works well, without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. Thanks to its intuitive layout and advanced settings, Flashnote should please all users, regardless of their skill level. There is also a portable edition available, if you want to skip the installation step.
