Secret Notes will help you take notes. There are a lot of applications designed for this purpose but what makes this software different is that it will protect your notes with a password so that other people cannot read them.

The interface is so simple that anyone knowing how to use the mouse and the keyboard can start to use the program right away. It does not have a toolbar or buttons, not even a help button. However, it is not that the developer forgot to put them there; the reason is because they are not necessary.

When you open this application for the first time, it will ask you to provide a password. From then on, you will need this password to access your notes. To create a new note, there is an area with a + sign. When you click on it, a new note appears for you to type whatever you want in it. Editing a note is easy with the help of an easy editor providing just a few format functions, like setting the text color and font. After that, you may decide to save the note or to cancel the changes. In addition, there is the possibility of undoing and redoing editing operations. Each note will be automatically saved and labeled with time and date. An icon resembling a recycle bin will let you delete unnecessary notes. Once you have finished taking your notes, you can ask the program to lock your notes. There are no hidden settings windows. Nothing! Just this simple interface I have described.

This is a case of a program with a very narrow function. The advantage of this sort of programs is that they are usually robust and, above all, they are very easy to use. However, if you do not mind using sophisticated software, perhaps you should try other more comprehensive applications of the same kind.
