Description from store Description: YiNote can help you easily save your ideas with online videos, and provide smooth note taking experience! Name change announcement: Due to the trademark violation with turbonote.com (a windows platform note taking software). Turbonote chrome extension will change the name to YiNote chrome extension from version 0.6.4. I will also take time to fix broken features and develop new features in the near future. Thanks for using YiNote. Open source announcement: YiNote has been re-wrote in React to achieve better maintainability and scalability in version1.0.0. I also open sourced this project in https://github.com/shuowu/yi-note. Hopefully it can help people all around the world to gain a better online learning experience during this COVID-19 pandemic. Please feel free to contribute to make YiNote better!

  • (2021-05-03) Sahil Gupta: It opens up yinote management window in another tab upon clicking. The notes don't work, please advise.
  • (2021-04-25) Ryan Fu: It's a good app but still hard to use. There are many issues on github. Please have a look and give us a feedback for the problems.
  • (2021-04-10) Zoltán Pető: Seems ok, but almost all the features are missing to me. Is that due to the react rewrite?
  • (2021-04-02) Andrew Cooper: Amazing idea. I hope I can get it to work properly. It won't export to Evernote and the time stamps just bring me to youtube. It's a little frustrating.
  • (2021-03-24) Crazy Unicorn: This is extremely useful for me to take the time to pick up random facts to memorize later on! The feature of markdown is incredible imo! Keep it up.
  • (2021-02-16) Matte Crystal: Would be good but has to simple things that make it literally useless to me. One the option to export to markdown creates .md file but this file actually has everything commented out so if I want to use it I need to manually uncomment everything. Second, Why the heck is there no option to copy markdown to clipboard? I wanna use this to take video notes and move them into a sperate notetaking app. Needing to save it to a separate file, open that file, select all, copy, and then paste into my notetaking app is a massive hassle. Plus as mentioned above I need to remove the comments. Also an option to copy markdown to clipboard should also be available on the actual youtube video page without needing to go to a new tab
  • (2021-02-05) Iñaki Jiménez Miranda: Muy práctico eso de poder ver un vídeo e ir tomando notas en la misma pantalla.
  • (2021-01-19) alaska Canyon: love it
  • (2020-12-28) Asif Bin Syed Sourav: I cannot open it. it takes me to the setting page when i click on it . what should i do?
  • (2020-12-09) Vincent Yee: very nice
  • (2020-12-02) Jesus Dragon: Не сохраняет URL Dont save URL
  • (2020-11-25) Shaun Tempemail: A great extension, easy to learn, simple to use, clean interface, does the job it was designed for. One point of friction: currently getting the 'This app has not been verified yet by Google' when trying to export to Google Docs.
  • (2020-11-25) Eduardo Carrillo: Es una excelente extensión para tomar notas mientras se mira un video en Youtube. De manera automática agrega la referencia de tiempo cuando se empieza a escribir la nota. Con facilidad se pueden descargar las notas en formato "Markdown" para integrarse con su aplicación de notas preferida. Esta es una instalación obligada.
  • (2020-11-22) Marco Mirolli: It looks like a wonderful extenction. I would have given 5 stars but for a the fact that I am not able to send the notes to google docs (which is a problem for me): it says "Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app - This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In." It would be great if this can be solved.
  • (2020-10-01) Formiko Ameisehaufen: Espetacular, não existe nenhuma ferramenta no genero. Muito eficiente e já em versão totalmente utilizável e estável. Parabéns aos desenvolvedores. Espero que continue gratuita.
  • (2020-09-02) Fumiya I: creating a note without comment, could be more useful for some people like me I think. but generally, great app.
  • (2020-08-01) Patrick Conrad: I mean, it kicks me from youtube to the website...so I can't even bookmark anything. Also the how to use section explains nothing on how to actually use the app. Simple fix that has been stated already....I'm a programmer, I could understand issues like the app kicking me on youtube because that's more of an issue you need to solve. But not providing instructions is ridiculous. I already deleted the extension, after 3 minutes. I assumed I was just not understanding how it worked which is frustrating. Even more frustrating to find out that it just wasn't working properly. But I might have kept it and given it more time after notifying you of this had I known it wasn't a user issue.
  • (2020-07-26) Çağlar Ongan: Hello, that's the extension I've been searching for ! Thanks for creating this. Just couple of things: 1. Aren't there any hotkey to trigger bookmarking (Like "B" which most of users used to from several websites) 2. When I enter "enter" after I write my note, it doesn't "save" but jumps to line below. I would do such thing with "shift+enter". I read your intention with "no hotkeys" from github but being able to use only keyboard is much faster in my humble opinion. Lastly, I would love to be able to change my thumbnail size in my panel so I can make thumbnails smaller to have a better overall view and export PDFs with less page.
  • (2020-07-02) 安明理: 简直酷毙了,如果能增加一些快捷键就更好了。譬如保存的时候不要点击:save,直接用ctrl+s
  • (2020-06-26) Harrison Smith: Absolutely love the extension. Amazing for research and the developer is actively working towards solving issues and improving the extension. - He has added some incredible features, like exporting to google docs and other services. - He has added markdown support. - Annotation over images! Overall this is the best app for not taking with youtube, and even works on other video streaming services. I am amazed! Thank you!
  • (2020-04-10) Benature Wang: It cannot export pdf even though i click 「gernerate pdf」, and it failed to export to evernote and share
  • (2020-04-09) 贾庭柯: very great ! but can you fix the evernote that "Failed to export notes to EverNote",im chinese user
  • (2020-02-28) theodore emelianov: This extension is useless for anything other than taking notes during videos. It wouldn't have been difficult to simply add a timer mode and allow you to take notes for a ton more applications. As it stands, this extension is niche and useless for anyone who wants something with flexibility and functionality in multiple areas. Feels lazy, don't use it.
  • (2020-02-12) lu zhang: 各位大侠,这边可以用生成pdf的功能么,为嘛我的不可以
  • (2020-02-10) music theory learner: very useful, but when can you fix the problem that you ca n’t continue to mark when the video mark reaches a certain number?
  • (2019-12-29) Лакомый Кусок: Надеюсь не сделают платным, лучшее расширение что я видел, после uBlock и touchVPN. И было бы неплохо допилить экспорт в обычный текстовой файл.
  • (2019-10-25) Gersivan Oliveira: Versão 0.6.4: Não busca texto destacado e notas rápidas de texto. Busca padrão retorna uma palavra ou outra e não todas as palavras. AINDA SEM EXPORTAÇÃO.
  • (2019-05-23) Ömer Vehbe: Muhteşem, Tam aradığım şey! Herkese tavsiye ederim..
  • (2019-05-03) javier lopez: Great!!! I need it
  • (2019-01-29) seyhan köseoğlu: it was actually a great extension, but the important sections like Notes are not available on Netflix!
  • (2019-01-12) Daniel Lee: Incredibly good idea. :)
  • (2019-01-02) John Martin: Would love to give this 5 stars but it is lacking is several areas. 1. Developer did not put much effort at all into instructions. As most of this is pretty self explanatory, when seeking help in some places, I find only some animated gif screen recording of the mouse moving around and clicking without really giving instruction as to what is going on. It's as if the developer went "Okay it's done... now for the instructions... ah screw it... I'll take some screenshots and get pushed out to the unsuspecting public by 9pm. Who cares?" 2. Seems to have a limit for storage with no way to export or save data in order to continue. So once used to a point, it becomes useless after that unless you delete your work thus far. 3. Missing a category setup. Once so much is saved, it's hard to keep track of what bookmarks are in conjunction with what topics you are taking notes about. 4. The transcript feature does nothing. Just shows a spinning loading icon. I assumed it just takes a while to load so started it, ate dinner, came back and still spinning. No idea what it even does really due to very poor gif instructions that literally tell you nothing. 5. By the time you have taken a note about something in a video, the note is pretty much after the part you were taking a note about. So keep having to backtrack on every note in order to make sure the timestamp is in the right place. Makes taking notes EXTREMELY slow and monotonous. There should be a button to timestamp the note before even finishing the note so you can mark the part of the video that is actually talking about that note's topic.. I could think of many more but the fact is... this extension seemed to be a god-sent at first and exactly what I was looking for... until after using it and then discovering that it really is just making things more complicated. It needs a ton of work and ESPECIALLY some kind of method to extend memory, export, or save it at the very least. Otherwise it just becomes more worthless the more you use it. It's like buying a bottle of pills that make you skinny but once you have taken the last pill, all the fat instantly reappears and then some. All of your effort and work is just thrown out the window and the pill bottle says "well, wasn't that fun? Sorry it can't last!"
  • (2018-12-27) Сергей Сушков: Расширение помогает делать заметки на ютубе. Писать в какой момент произошло что нибудь. Не хватает полного русского языка. Русский язык есть только в поисковике.

Would really love to know where the database files are kept on Mac as I'm planning on doing a fresh re-install and really don't want to lose a year of notes. Any help from anyone would be much appreciated.
  • (2018-06-06) Ngoc Anh Nhu Dinh: Greatest tool compared to other ones! I have reached the limit of the free synched data, hopefully the cloud option will be available soon!
  • (2018-06-01) Renato Wisocki Junior: muito bom the best
  • (2018-05-24) XU Yangqi: Extremely amazing tool!
  • (2018-03-11) Vincenzo Basirico: This extension is insanely GREAT!!!! It is truly unbelievable how useful and well coded it is. A real masterpiece. If you watch a lot of (meaningful) video such as self-development videos, this tool is a MUST. Congratulations Shuo Wu, excellent job! I hope you will add cloud (google drive) backup! Please!! I will pay for this extension (no subscription though).
  • (2018-03-02) David Chaney: This is a great extension but it needs cloud support so that the same notes with open on different computers no matter where you are at. I think this is key to making this a highly popular download. When can we expect cloud support???
  • (2017-12-24) Wish Rong: Great App for online learning via YouTube.
  • (2017-11-16) Rindo Pra Valer: Great app, only miss store and sync options.
  • (2017-08-15) Jôvani Moura: When is accessed in other computer, the shared notes not work (empty notes), please fix this issue! But, after all it's amazing extension.
  • (2017-07-25) 李Love: 很好用

    Most of the course material I am using are stored locally on my computer or on google drive. I accept that turbonote is not a standalone application so local video note taking is unlikely. However google drive support for Turbonote would be a massive gamechanger.
