See more with the ALL-NEW Widescreen View.
The new Widescreen View lets you see more about a note without opening the note. This view has been popularized by email clients because it allows you to browse through your emails without having to open each one. Now you can do the same thing with your notes.



Filter notes using the ALL-NEW Tag Explorer.

The new Tag Explorer makes it easy to drill down through your notes to find just the note or notes you're looking for. The Tag Explorer shows you all the tags currently being used by the notes in your selected folder. Select a tag and you'll see only the notes that have that tag assigned. Repeat until you see your desired notes. It's fast and informative.
 


  NEW! Bookmarklets.

Bookmarklets appear in the bookmarks bar of your web browser. When you click a bookmarket, a bookmark note or web archive note for the the current web page will be saved in SOHO Notes. Capturing information from the web is even easier now!


View it your way.
SOHO Notes makes viewing your notes as easy as capturing them. Navigate your notes in a 1) List View; 2) Icon View; or 3) Cover Flow View. Use the Icon View or Cover Flow View to navigate all your notes visually. Each note is displayed as a large preview of its first page.



  Sync with your iPhone or iPod touch.

In today's fast paced world, it's critical to have your important notes with you even when you're on the go. SOHO Notes synchronizes seamlessly with your iPhone or iPod touch using a companion application on your handheld called NoteLife (available separately from the App Store). Synchronization is two-way so notes added on your iPhone sync to your computer and vice versa. You get to choose the folders you want to sync so everything remains familiar. Synchronize all your notes including rich text, images, PDF's, movies, voice recordings, files, forms (read-only), web archives, and bookmarks. Now you can literally take everything with you including the kitchen sink.


Record voice, video, and photo notes.

Voice notes to remember.

Record memos, ideas, thoughts, reminders, lectures, meetings, or any audio you want using your computer's built-in or external microphone. When you're done, edit your recording, then choose to save the recording as a new note or email it to a friend.

Video notes are fun.
Shoot and edit video right from your computer using your computer's built-in iSight camera. After shooting, trim it to the perfect length, and save the recording as a new note.

Photo notes are worth a thousand words.
Snap a picture using your computer's built-in iSight camera then save the photo as a new note. Captured photos can also be emailed, saved to disk, or copied to the clipboard.
 
   

  Organize with sub-folders, databases, labels, and tags.

SOHO Notes makes it easy to organize your information the way you want. For starters, you can store your information in as many different databases as you'd like (Personal, Family, Research, etc). Within each database create an unlimited number of folders and sub-folders to further categorize your stuff. You can even assign your own icons to folders to help you quickly identify them.

If you prefer not to file notes in a folder hierarchy, you can also organize everything by assigning your own labels and tags to notes. You can then use Smart Folders to automatically filter your notes for you.


Attachments made easy.

Attach Contacts
Attach contacts to notes to establish relationships.

Attach Tasks
Do you have lots of notes filled with tasks? Do you wish those tasks would show up on the task list in your calendar program? It's now possible. Attach tasks externally to notes or simply enter tasks right inside of your notes along with everything else. Either way, you can change the status (completed, underway, etc.) of your tasks from within SOHO Notes and the change will sync to your calendar software.

Attach Notes
Establish relationships between your notes by attaching them to one another. Attached notes are highlighted in a special color in the notes list.
 


Always at your service…and fingertips.

SOHO Notes is always available to help you capture new information and search your notes (even when it isn't running) via a special application always running in the background.

FlashNote
Conveniently located in the menu bar, FlashNote lets you search and view your notes from any application—SOHO Notes doesn't even have to be running. FlashNote searches are lightning-fast. Plus, once you find the note you're looking for, you can copy its contents directly from FlashNote and paste it into another application.

QuickNote
Use QuickNote to compose a note on-the-fly without launching SOHO Notes—simply press a hot key to invoke it. QuickNote is always available from any application so you can compose a note no matter what you're doing or what you're in the middle of.
  DockNote
Drag content to DockNote on the side of your screen. DockNote will automatically slide out so you can drop your content into any folder. A new note will be created and saved in the folder where you dropped your content.

Services Menu
Choose Services from any application's application menu to grab and store the selected content in SOHO Notes.

Hot Keys
Press a hot key of your choosing from any application to instantly store your selection in SOHO Notes. You can also use hot keys to paste notes into other applications.



  Customize your life with custom forms.

If you have information that is less free-form and more structured, no problem. Design a form with fields that fit your information and then create as many notes using that form as you'd like. Suppose, for example, that you'd like to neatly keep track of your credit cards. Design a “Credit Card” form with fields you want like card name, number, expiration date, annual fee.

Forms are also a great way to store and search structured data you might have in another program, database, or spreadsheet. Simply import tab delimited and CSV data directly into SOHO Notes and the software will create a new form note for each record in your file.
Elements to make your life a little easier.

SOHO Notes supports powerful typography features including text alignment, line spacing, paragraph spacing, kerning, ligatures, super/subscripts, rulers with tab stops, etc. In addition to advance typography, SOHO Notes lets you insert convenient elements like calendars, check boxes, tables, lists, and hyperlinks to make your life easier

  Tables
Create sophisticated-looking tables directly in your notes. Specialized tools are available to help you edit cell background colors, cell spacing, cell borders, etc. You can even merge cells, split cells, and nest tables.

Live Hyperlinks
Establish hyperlink relationships between notes and almost any other resource. Simply select some text in a note and then hyperlink it to a web address, ftp address, email address, file on your computer, etc. Once a hyperlink is established, you can click the link to access the corresponding resource.


  Keep your life in sync.

iPod Synchronization
Take your notes with you anywhere using the built-in iPod synchronization feature. Simply drag the notes you want on your iPod to the special iPod folder and press the sync button.
