Downloads are now available at

NoteCase Pro for Android is the companion app to Notecase desktop, and supports the .ncdb and .ncde (encrypted) file format so the same files can be shared between desktop and Android editions.

The major news is that starting from now you can by Pro version through PayPal (use "Buy Now" at the page). When shopping, please leave your email, so that after the payment, I can send you the key file in the email.

Installation instructions for your Android device:
    - prerequisites: program requires Android 1.6 or newer
    - download the .apk file and transfer it from your to your phone's SD card
    - enable installing applications from unknown source ("Settings" > "Applications" > "Unknown Sources" check box)
    - use some file manager application installed on your phone/tabled to click on the Notecase.apk file to start the installation.
      "ES File Explorer" is a good and free file manager app choice.
    - if you get problem installing the app, try uninstalling the previous version first
    - copy your "all OSes, valid forever" license key to your SD card root folder
    - start the app

    - uses .ncdb and .ncde file format compatible as used in the desktop version
    - you can create a new document or open an existing document file
    - Tree Pane is displayed featuring the hierarchical tree of your document notes
    - basic note operations supported in the Tree Pane are: insert, delete, rename
    - short click on the note title in the Tree Pane open Text Pane featuring rich text formatting editor
    - there are two different GUIs, one for phones and one for tablets (landscape mode) embedded in the same app
    - in the file open dialog, there is an additional way to navigate to the parent folder by using the swipe from right to left gesture action
    - you can create a shortcut to selected document on your phone's desktop

Changes compared to NoteCase Pro for Android 1.0.0 are few:
    - new program icon
    - added extra high density icon size
    - support for custom Android license key file (sold though PayPal's "Buy Now" button)
