GloboNote: a powerful note manager

GloboLinux is a slick looking powerful app to handle all your notes. In addition to being a note manager, it is also a sticky notes app with rich text editing capabilities. It lets you attach files and images to the notes. The only drawback I find is that it is written in JAVA but given the number of features t has, I guess people with JAVA already installed defnitely check it out. Features at a glance:

  • Use as a note manager, sticky notes app to ToDo list manager.
  • Set Alarms/Reminders. Play custom files.
  • Smart checklist creation. Create to-do list by inserting checkboxes.
  • Create link to an app and double click to launch it.
  • Search Notes even when you are typing. Find and replace.
  • Built-in Calculator.
  • Hide/Show/Park note.
  • Organize notes in group.
  • Attach files or images. Double click to launch. Auto resize image.
  • Paste image from Clipboard. Take screenshot and paste it to note.
  • Restore deleted notes.
  • Lock note.
  • Export note as plain text.
  • Customize the looks of notes.
  • Note templates.
  • Move or Resize note.
  • Always on top.
  • Roll-up note. Compact roll-up.
  • Transparency.
  • URL Detection with launch in browser.
  • Rich text editing.
  • Highlight text.
  • Paragraph alignment.
  • Platform Independent. Runs on Linux, Windows and Mac.

As the app is written in JAVA, it is platform independent and installation is trivial if you have JAVA.
