Notes adds widescreen view, Organizer gets CardDAV
Chronos has launched two new updates this week, releasing v9.0 for both SOHO Notes and SOHO Organizer. SOHO Notes is a note-taking app that allows the user to capture, store and share digital images, voice recordings, videos, web archives and PDFs. Version 9.0 adds a widescreen view that presents the notes in a cascading column style, allowing users to quickly browse notes without having to open them.
Offers highly sensitive note input
ASUS has officially launched its Eee Note EA800 e-reader/note-taker. The device runs a Linux OS and centers on an 8-inch 768X1024, 64 grayscale display. As an e-reader, it can store up to 10,000 books. In note-taking mode, its Wacom touch screen can sense up to 256 different levels of input pressure that allows for highly detailed and accurate input.
Update improves navigation, coding, imports
Useful Fruit Software has released Pear Note 2, an update to its note-taking software. Pear Note integrates text notes with audio or video recordings, while presenting information on a timeline. The software can jump to a specific point on the timeline for audio or visual playback, giving users numerous references to the text notes recorded at that point. Keynote, Powerpoint and PDF slides can be dragged into the timeline for additional references. Pear Note also provides a text search that finds entries as a user types, narrowing possibilities with each keystroke.
New database engine keeps files in original format
DEVONtechnologies has released updates to its information manager and note-taking software, launching DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.0. DEVONthink manages documents, messages, notes and bookmarks, while allowing users to annotate PDFs and cross-references documents to track relationships between them. DEVONnote can be used to write notes in plain or rich text and clip data from documents and web pages. It provides options for searching or finding similar items, while integrating a web browser within the interface.
Pear Note 1.0
Nearly everyone has needed to take notes during a class or meeting. While typing notes on a laptop may seem simple enough, two problems remain. First, you may have missed hearing something important so your notes won’t contain this information. Second, trying to find specific information buried in your notes can be tedious and time-consuming. To make note taking easy and complete, consider dumping your word processor and using Pear Note 1.0 instead.
