Manage your notes quickly with Flashnote

Have you ever felt the necessity for writing down something quickly?

Normally we need to open a notepad either by creating one in a folder (right click > New > Text Document) or by just opening it from Start Menu / Desktop / Quick Launch / Hot Key and later saving it. But both this processes needs additional time for saving.

Also have you felt the need for removing formatting of a copied text for pasting it in a word processor?

Notepad is again in rescue there.

But if you want to cut off the additional time of saving and renaming those text document I have a suggestion for you. Use Flashnote instead. I am using it for some time and is highly pleased.
