Another very good free software for GTD and notepad is Minipad2 programed by Mr. Xu Liand. Minipad 2 is as excellent as Memped I intruduced last time, but with some more useful functions, like Reminder, Calculator, and so on. With a bit more knowledge of Mr. Xu’s background, majored in Chemistry and is good at Chinese medicine, you must be surprised by such a marvelous work.
Below is the introduction and download link from the offical site:
minipad2 is a tiny program which integrates many useful functions including notepad, calculator, reminder, dictionary, launcher, address list, text template & clipboard-enhancement, with very low system-requirement and memory take-up. All the contents are automatically saved while minimized or closed, and when re-opened the last state will be restored.
The program can be freely switched between two styles: multi-page style and treeview style. When no longer used, it can be minimized to the system-tray, or hide outside of the desktop.
The program provides very flexible configurations. Besides the basic notepad function, all the other extended functions (calculator, reminder…) are like plug-ins which can be freely enabled or disabled in the options.
minipad2 is a single-exe green software. It can be directly used when unzipped to any directory without installation. It adds no key to the system registry, except for the “Run” key when set as start with windows.
