Feature: Single Note Editing

Recently we were asked about using UberNote as a replacement for Notepad.  This person usually had a keyboard shortcut key to quickly bring up a Notepad window to enter a new note.

To use UberNote like this all you need to do is create a shortcut with this link in it:  http://www.ubernote.com/webnote/client/StandaloneEditor.aspx?noteid=NEW_NOTE

The link will create a new note in the full editor, complete with autosaving and formatting.  It's basically the same editor that is inside the app.  Each time you go to that link a brand new note will be created and saved.  (Be careful not to close the note too fast, there is a few seconds of time that has to pass after you start typing so UberNote knows when to save.  You can see the text indicator in the top right to know that the save is complete)

Also if you want to access the same note over and over again, you can open a specific note and bookmark the link.  If you are in the full UberNote app and have a note opened there is a icon in the top right corner of the note that allows you to break out the note into a standalone editor.  The format looks a lot like the one above except is has the note ID in it.  Just bookmark or copy that URL.

(If a note doesn't pop out, you may want to look into allowing a pop up from UberNote.  For Chrome:   http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95472

This is a very cool feature. In fact, it's time UberNote get more attention from a site like Lifehacker. They rave about Evernote (too complex) and Springpad (too graphical) - UberNote is just right. I hope the coming premium features will bring you much success.
