Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This tiny utility looks like Notepad and it has almost the same functionality, only Flashnote opens faster. It can be minimized to the system tray and started with a hot key. Flashnote also lets you choose from various fonts, font colors, and background colors. No formatting options aside from word wrap are offered. You can insert the time and date and save entries in text format. Unlike Notepad, however, each time you open it, the last text entered is still displayed. You have the option of keeping Flashnote always on top, which can prove either very handy or slightly cumbersome, depending on your work style. Though this freeware is easy enough for anyone to use, most will want a full-fledged text editor with more flexibility and features.

Developer's Description

Flashnote is just a rough copy for your quick work with any text information. When you need a rough copy to save or to process some pieces of a text, Flashnote is small, quick and convenient. Press the shortcut-key combination and a rough copy is on screen in a flash of a second. Press ESC and the program hides. You don't need to find a place for text, to run Notepad or your PIM.
