Tomboy is a note taking application available for Mac, Windows and Linux. Courtesy of the Tomboy development team, it provides an easy way to take down notes and reminders. While there are a lot of apps that can do this, what sets Tomboy apart is the fact that it uses a Wiki-like interface, making it easy to see and relate notes and ideas.
With Tomboy you can easily organize and even branch off notes. You can also create links for those pages you made, and what’s even better is that the links stay intact even if you rearrange and rename your notes. In many cases changing names and reorganizing is unavoidable, so this is a really handy feature.
Using the program is also very easy as everything is just a mouse click away. All you need to do is click the Tomboy Panel applet and select any of the notes you made, and you can also use its search function to find older notes that you made before. Another handy feature is the Table of Contents as it shows all your notes in the order when you last changed them.
The versatility of Tomboy doesn’t end there though, because with it you no longer have to drag your applications around the desktop to find the website you added. As far as editing features go, it has many advanced features but you probably won’t need to make many adjustments as the basic set up works just fine. The interface of Tomboy is very streamlined so you can focus on just writing notes. In addition, the application offers.
