Editors' Review

+

This freeware offers many unusual advantages over standard text editors like Notepad, but its interface is not one of them. Quicknote's atypical, unfamiliar interface and miniscule controls can be a pain to operate. By default, the background color scheme is a sea green, but you can change this, as well as the color, style, and size of the font.

Quicknote also includes a simple drawing tool, and though you can tweak the size of the brush, you can't choose from additional pens or pencils. We did like the ability to create an unlimited number of notes from the main window, and we really appreciated the alarm functionality. This latter feature can't actually play a sound for some reason, but it will launch any application or pop up a reminder message.

The measurement converter seems like an odd addition, but it's nonetheless appreciated. If you can overlook its frustrating design, Quicknote may be worth considering.

"It is an awesome program!"

April 18, 2015  |  By dexteriot

 |  Version: Quicknote 5.5

Pros

Ive been using it for quite some time and Im very happy with it. Its lightweight and if you want it can be on the screen or you can bring it up quickly. No need to save it in a text file or open text file every time, you just write notes and they are saved automatically. You can create categories which is very useful. Im always making various notes.

It also has other useful tools like unit converter, calculations (you can calculate various things even something to do with music notes), measuring distances on the screen and recently I discovered that I can send files and text from one computer to another on the network! How handy! No need for usb drives, copy first, then eject and go to another computer paste and then eject. My review is a thank you to developers!

Cons

NONE so far

Summary

Install and use it and you wont regret :)

 |  Version: Quicknote 5.5

Pros

includes reminders, volume control, unit conversion tool, calculator, and of course notes. It is a small program which does a lot and does it excellently. Extremely handy, and fully customizable in many, many ways, but very easy to use. Must have.

Cons

can not think of any!
