Editors' Review

Since so many of us spend so much time on our computers now, it makes sense to have a quick and easy way to take notes there, whether we're recording a great idea or just a reminder to buy milk. Efficient Notes Free gives peoplea way to write themselves notes, but it's not as useful as some similar programs we've seen.

The program's interface reminds us very much of Microsoft Outlook. The screen is split horizontally into two panes, with the top pane displaying each note's title and the bottom pane displaying the selected note's body. The program actually functions kind of like a mini word processor; notes have plenty of options for formatting text, and users can insert images and emoticons. The search feature is surprisingly versatile, allowing people to search for words in particular fields, such as the title or content, in each note. A built-in Help file is well-written and surprisingly thorough. But that's pretty much the extent of Efficient Notes Free's features. The Pro version of the software lets people create desktop notes and attach documents to notes, two features with the potential to be very useful, but they're not available here. And users who are looking for a program that will remind them of upcoming events should look elsewhere; this program has no scheduling or time-sensitive features. Overall, Efficient Notes Free works just fine, but its limited features put it at a disadvantage compared with other similar programs.

Efficient Notes Free installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to people who need a very basic note program.

Pros

Fairly easy to use, has some very good features,

Cons

There are numerous different types of this particular genre, would I really use this on a regular basis, probably not!

Summary

Okay if this is your kind of thing, why choose this one above the rest, its down to personal choice I guess!

"Crippleware"

 |  Version: Efficient Notes Free 1.75 Build 56

Pros

A tree-structure organization ...sort of.

Cons

Can't have true hierarchal organization of notes with indented "child" sub-grouping unless you put out $15 for the "pro" version.

Summary

There's other hierarchal structured notational systems with indented "child" sub-notes here in Download.com which are FREE.
