ResophNotes is a straight-forward text-only note taker where the first line of a note becomes the title in the note list. Can sort by title or last modified date and able to email/print notes from app. Includes an easy indent system and support for markdown (text-to-HTML conversion) with preview. Can recover delete note(s), import text (.txt) file(s), import Outlook exported .csv file and Toodledo Notebook .csv file.

The program can sync securely online with the Simplenote service, which itself has a long list of possible software beyond ResophNotes, including for mobile devices like the iPhone, Android, and others.

Existing notes in this folder will be automatically added.

16??? MB!!!

Alcadema 2010-10-13 12:56

Actually, on downloading it's more like 7.1 MB. Still a little large for what it does, but it's not 16 MB.

Shaggy 2010-10-13 14:57

Unzipped, its around 16 megs! Wow.

Use Pazer's Free UPX to compress the files in the folder to around 6 megs or try FlashNotes from SoftVoile

cintanotes for the win. clean, slim, and pure win32 c.

ResophNotes is quite handy if you have an Android or iPhone, since it allows you to enter or browse information using your mobile, and later synchronize with ResophNotes via Simplenote. I'm a CintaNotes user and I wish this feature would be available in it, but sadly it isn't. So ResophNotes definitely fills a gap.

Gee... those "slideshow" screenshots that are being used lately for various entries are a pest. I like to look at a screenshot closely to see what the program can do. But with those "slideshows" that can't be stopped, one actually sees almost NOTHING. Better one single picture that one can watch closely than several fast changing pictures whose details one can't see.

Yeah, I know I'm slow. So slow that I probably posted this in the wrong place too. ;-)

I recommend TreePad:

Read synopsis again! The program can do online sync with simplenote (free) service. So stop comparing it to other zillion note-taking progs which don't have such option. Please, recommend me another one.... Until then, RasopNotes is unique.

Reply to dot's comment about slideshow too fast. I too wanted to read the features on the taskbar, but the damn "slideshow" as she calls it, goes too damn fast to stop it and read what it does. I'll stay with my Cintas.


webfork 2012-04-25 00:14

dot / loner: The screenshots are posted that way in an effort to demonstrate basic elements of the program. GIF files can be slowed down or paused using PhotoScape - If you think it could be done better, please post in forums:


Loner 2012-04-25 01:01

Webfork, this is not something you should take personally if you posted this screenshot. Its a "constructive" criticism which is intended to make someone aware that animated gifs are often too fast. As for being able to do it better myself, I work with graphics, photoshop and have done animations. I thought you might appreciate the "constructive" critique, but if you take it so personally, you are setting yourself up for exposing how sensitive you are and how vulnerable you are. My next advice is chill out and not take critiques here so damn personally.


I am Baas 2012-04-25 02:23

@Loner What a miserable prick you are. A real troll. I read and re-read webfork's comment but I still can't figure out how did you arrive to that conclusion. Listen, "trying to be helpful" is not the same thing as "taking something personally". Your "critique" was/is not constructive at all. Get lost.


webfork 2012-04-27 02:09

Loner: Didn't take it personally -- created the forum thread to integrate what users besides you and dot have found problematic. Sorry if my tone was accusatory.

@vivi: I was a sworn CintaNotes user, but now that they charge $25 for a 1-year license (and after that, no updates) I see this as a fine alternative. :)


hamasaki 2013-04-29 06:28

Great software, which has been my main notes app for ages and is used daily with no issues. I used to use CintaNotes and also NoteItDown, but the fact ResophNotes can sync to Simple Note is the killer feature. I have my notes synced with Draft on Android via Dropbox and it works great. I only need plain text notes, so I`m good to go.


logear 2013-04-29 20:06

I agree with hamasaki. I've only used this for a few months & now can't do without it. Some of the above remarks aren't comparing apples to apples.
This is not a sticky note type of app, it's more of a notebook.


webfork 2016-03-31 22:10

I set this program aside for a long time but recently came back to it for cell phone integration with Simplenote. The markup capability is very useful.


Midas 2016-04-01 11:48

I fully agree. Resoph is one of the most interesting note takers I have found to date. It's a real shame it isn't being developed anymore... :(


lautrepay 2016-04-01 15:37

Simplenote official and open source clients for Windows and Linux released on March 29 (with markdown support). A portable version would be nice, altough ResophNotes is still useful...


xor 2016-04-02 03:55

anybody ever tried WorkFlowy? I've neen using it for a while and decided to pour my while brain into it, I'm using android version in my phone, desktop version has way more features and they both sync seamlessly almost in real time :)


webfork 2016-04-02 18:31

xor: WorkFlowy is nice (handles nested lists better than many tools) but think I'll stick with Resophnotes just because it plays very nice with other tools.


xor 2016-04-07 02:44

since ResophNotes seems to rule at the desktop but most of my note-taking work has to be done on the go via mobile I'd love to hear sugestions for Android because after trying SimpleNote, Notes, Draft and some other millions-downloads-wellknownOnes... nah nah, still doing better with WorkFlowy and its intuitive tagging, searching, filtering, exporting, syncing. It's not just about taking notes, it's all about using notes taken in a more productive ,manner. I still wanna sync via DropBox, though.


Midas 2016-04-07 10:21

@xor: Monospace ( was very promising, before the dev decided to switch from Dropbox to Google Drive syncing -- I keep still but don't use much anymore.

Mnote ( is a oldie goldie for Simplenote sync. Writeily ( and neutriNote ( appear to be the next big ones to keep in check, IMHO.

Everyone else will just recommend Onenote and/or Evernote... ;)


xor 2016-04-08 20:39

They're all good choices @Midas thanks, I'll be trying them, I think Android Apps are yet to evolve a lot


Midas 2016-04-13 13:12

After writing my previous comment, I stumbled upon iA Writer ( which turned into my current favorite Android editor/noter... =)


Midas 2018-01-20 10:01

As noted in forum topic, ResophNotes v1.6.0 released, dated 2018-01-14 (no changelog, but 64-bit only)...
