Omnium: A Minimalistic Windows Note-taking App

Omnium is an ultra-lightweight, minimalistic note-taking app for Windows. It’s similar in style to CintaNotes and my favorite note-taking tool, Notational Velocity for the Mac (s aapl); its small footprint provides a fast efficient and unobtrusive note-taking experience. And because it’s a portable app, you can put it in a folder in your Dropbox account (or some other file sync service) and then access it from anywhere.

Omnium is still in beta. Although it has regex search, it only searches note titles, and it crashed on me a couple of times while playing with it, so I think I’ll stick with CintaNotes on Windows for now. However, it does show a lot of promise, so it’s an app to keep an eye on if you’re a fan of lightweight note-taking tools, especially as Simplenote integration is among the features planned for the future

Omnium is a free download for Windows. It requires .NET Framework 4.0.
