Hi all,

just in case someone is not subscribed to our newsletter:

Tomorrow we'll be featuring CintaNotes on BitsDuJour, a 'deal-of-the-day' website that we've partnered with.

BitsDuJour will be offering the PRO license on Friday 23 May, 2014 for $12.50, with the current normal price being $25. More than that, soon we plan to raise the price to $39 per license, so this is a great chance to become CN-PRO if you wanted to do it but were putting this off.

If you're still unsure whether you need the PRO version, here is a visual comparison of the free and paid versions. Also you can request a free 10-day trial to help you decide.

In case you already are a PRO license holder, then first and foremost, huge thank you for your support! It is thanks to you that we are able to continue improving CintaNotes. If you have any friends who might be interested in CintaNotes, please let them know about the date. We can't afford to offer this kind of thing often, and it will be available on BitsDuJour for 2 days only.

Just tell them to visit BitsDuJour on Friday 23 May, 2014 to get CintaNotes for $12.50.
If you visit it right now you can click the 'I Want This' button and you'll be sure not to miss it!

Introducing Lifetime PRO License

Hi everyone,

Many users have requested us to provide an option for a so-called lifetime license: pay a bit more upfront, then receive free updates for life. No more worries about the license key being not valid for a new version - only stress-free note taking.

We have pondered on the idea and have finally decided to give it a try. So I'm glad to say that, effective today, we make the CintaNotes Lifetime PRO license available!

The price for this license is higher than for a regular license: 119 USD for new customers, and 79.99 USD for existing customers. Why is it so much higher? Because we've learned from mistakes of others: in the past, many good software products disappeared because their authors had set the price of a lifetime license too low. And then had to abandon any further development, because the flow of new customers just wasn't strong enough. We wouldn't want this to happen to CintaNotes. So I'd like to stress this out: we offer this more as a convenience option, not as a discount.

Feature-wise there is no difference between PRO and Lifetime PRO. The only difference will be that Lifetime PRO license holders will enjoy priority technical support.

Here are the relevant links for the interested:
