Simplenote 1.5
Simplenote implements markdown formatting on supported platforms.

These days, you can’t simply rely on a single note-taking app on your computer to provide all your needs. Any note-taking tool worth its salt works on a wide range of devices and platforms, synchronising your notes effortlessly via the cloud to ensure you have access to those notes wherever you happen to be.

The most celebrated pioneer in this field is, of course, Evernote, but its best features, including unlimited sync, are hidden behind an expensive paywall. For most people, its rich-text features are overkill, so if you’re looking for a simple, but effective, way to record plain text notes on one device and then sync those notes effortlessly to other platforms, you need Simplenote.

Simplenote’s biggest selling feature is that it’s completely free, and there are apps for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android, thus neatly spanning the major platforms (you can also access your notes by logging on to Simplenote.com in your browser for good measure). But to dismiss it as a basic note-taking app is to do Simplenote a disservice.

First, you can easily search notes, plus add tags to help keep them organised. You can even share notes – publish them for anyone to view via a weblink, or choose to collaborate with other Simplenote users, allowing them to edit as well as view shared notes.

It doesn’t end there either – Simplenote backs up all changes to your notes, so if you want to revisit an earlier version, simply click the History button and use the slider to step back, choosing to restore the version you want.

Simplenote has also implemented support for markdown formatting on all platforms except the Mac – once enabled via the ‘i’ button, you can switch between Edit and Preview views to see the original text versus the formatted preview.

At the end of the day, this app may be too basic for some people’s tastes, but if you’re looking for a cross-platform note-taking tool with just enough frills, it’s hard to look beyond Simplenote.

What's new in 1.5.0

- An additional button to deselect "Trash" folders across all accounts in the Message Finder
- Users of the On-The-Fly-Encryption mode can specify /DECRYPT_FILE_OTFE command line parameter to decrypt a particular file and save it to disk

Verdict:

If you don’t need to bells and whistles of Evernote, then Simplenote is the perfect note-taking tool.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
