I absolutely love this software. It meets all my tagging needs and more.

It's clean and simple. I feel the designer is very in tune with the customers and their requests and suggestions. The other popular note apps are too bulky for my personal needs.

I also love that you can get a 10 day free trial to try it out and see if your needs are met. You should at least try out the 10 day trial. You may be very surprised at what you find.

Works great for my needs. Author of this app just gets it. I have come to really rely on it for my day-to-day workflow.

Picked the full license version up for free from GiveawayOfTheDay a while ago. I wanted to use it with Simplenote syncing. Sure, it synced, but then it completely broke and duplicated my notes in SN about a hundred times each. Uninstalled completely. Useless for my purpose, maybe it's good as standalone but if I wanted that I'd just use a regular text editor and Dropbox.

-Great user interface.
-Fast
-Low memory usage.
-Helpful support

This goes way beyond those simple post-it notes on your desktop, managing a huge amount of information, that is easily accessible through its main interface, and using a tags system.

Just great, try it!

Happy long time CintaNotes user here (I have a licence for the Pro version). There is a lot I like about the program:
-Simple interface
-Tagging functionality (I prefer tags to find content over a non-tagged database and plain text searching, though tags are optional in CintaNotes and it does offer normal text searching as well)
-Program is updated often, and the developer listens to CintaNotes users.
-Stability (I don't think I have ever had the program crash on me once, which is good for data integrity)

There are some things I don't like:
-No file or image attachments, it is text only at the moment (this is a feature on the roadmap however)
-No encryption (again, this is something on the roadmap)
-This doesn't affect me now, but I mention it as it did affect me before I became a licence Pro user: The feature-set offered in the Free version is a bit odd compared to most other programs I am familiar with. The main one being that you can operate multiple databases in the Free version, but cannot access them via the File menu, as you can with virtually every other Windows program (unlocking the other databases section of the File menu is a Pro feature) - instead, you have to set multiple CintaNotes shortcuts to swap between databases.
-The licence price for a Pro licence is quite high for what the program is (a note taking software) - and it is a 12 monthly renewal as well

All in all, I do recommend CintaNotes though - I wouldn't have bought a Pro licence had I not been willing to do so.

@uberfly,
The author disabled that option for a while.

I'm glad he is listening to users.
Looking forward for the android version.

Simple and useable but with plenty of abilities if you need them. Perfect quick note app for shoving those random snips and notes. HeilNizar - there's a portable zip next to the installer. Something wrong with your eyes.

I thought it was improving, but now that they joined portable and installer into one setup, its going down hill.

From a quick view at the program it has a clean interface and has a good many features. New features are being added presently as the program continues to improve. Overall it is a powerful notes program and is very affordable - pro version, and has a nice set of shortcut keys

Simple and good.
-One window note app.
-Portable directly from the developer.
-Nice design.

However..
Its missing an alert function and an option to give each note a different color. Its also using 8+ MB while just hiding in the tray, I think it would be a good idea to destroy the GUI when hidden which will drop its memory usage to less than 1 MB.

Looks a little too basic, and lacking any real usable features. I prefer Keynote NF. It has tabbed notes, and each tab can have more notes in a tree structure. Excellent for putting pictures, or just about anything else.

Been using this a few weeks now and it is really nicely done. Lives in the tray where I pop info in and out as I'm working with it or trying to remember it. Well done author.

I like Tiny Pad from http://tinypad.info more though, it looks nicer
