NotecasePro licensing news

Starting with the new version 3.6.3, Notecase Pro got a new license type locked to a single OS platform and to the exact version number of the program (the one available at the time of purchase).

This license is much cheaper than others, so it makes sense to buy it if your budget does not allow you to buy other licenses or if you are not yet 100% sure about the program.

The good news is that the prices of other license types have just gone down for 30%.
Notecase Pro v3.6.3. has just been released

Feel free to contact me if you are using one of those.
