A look at note-taking applications
Jot It Down
Although there are quite a few note-taking applications to choose from, we'll show you why NoteCase and NoteFinder should be at the top of your list.
Note-taking applications often are considered to be just glorified text editors. True – you can use a text editor to jot notes, but you need something more powerful if you want to format, organize, search, and export the stuff you write. Although you have quite a few applications to choose from, NoteCase and NoteFinder should be at the top of your list if you are in the market for a solid note-taking tool.
When you first visit NoteCase's website , you'll notice an impressive array of supported platforms. NoteCase runs not only on Linux, Free BSD, Mac OS X, and Windows, but also on Sharp Zaurus PDA and Maemo-based devices like Nokia N800 and N810 Internet tablets. Of course, NoteCase is available in the software repositories of almost every popular Linux distribution, but if you prefer to install the newest version of NoteCase, you might want to get the latest binary package from the application's download page, where you can find packages for Ubuntu, Fedora, and PCLinuxOS. Even a .deb package has been created specifically for Asus Eee PC.
NoteCase's interface is simplicity itself, with a tree pane on the left, an editing area on the right, and an obligatory toolbar at the top. But don't let its appearance fool you – the application packs a lot of features essential for efficient note taking.
