lino ’09 is released!

We’re pleased to announce the release of lino ’09, the new version of lino. It comes with a new interface and features that reflect usage trends and user feedbacks, and make the service even easier and more convenient not only for personal use, but also for use at schools or workplaces.

The new version’s interface has been completely revamped to make navigation simpler and easier to grasp.

Convenient new features include “File stickies” that enable the easy sharing of Word, Excel and other files, “Search stickies” for visual search of stickies, and “Embed lino” for embedding lino in blogs.

In addition to a current free service, a pay service at $3 has also been launched. Paying users can post large files with “File stickies”, search old stickies, save original image files with “Photo Storage”, and protect all lino communications with SSL encryption.

What’s New in lino ’09

Share files as you use stickies
Attach files to lino stickies and you can view the same file both at home and office. You can share the files with your family, friends, and colleagues.
Free membership allows up to 10MB of file attachment to a single sticky. The maximum total file size that can be saved in a month is 100MB, and you can download a maximum of 10 attachment files from other users’ stickies in a month.

My Page tells you everything
With a glance, get the update status of My Canvas and Group Canvases. Check the due dates on your schedule in a glance.

You can now search the text of the stickies by keywords. You’ll get a visual search result!
Dock is now easier to use
My Canvases, My Favorites, and Group Canvases can now be switched from one to the other. The stickies can be moved or copied by dragging and dropping into the canvas thumbnails on Dock.
Embedded lino
Just copy and paste the HTML and you can embed lino in your blog page!

  1. I work in a school and we’re running the school website. I’ve been looking for online stickies, but none seems to have the necessary features that we need. Your stickies have a lot of potential. I tried embedding it into our site and it works very well, not to mention that it is fairly simple to use. Only, I have a problem with access. We want everyone to be able to view all the stickies; but we want the posting to be limited only to a certain group. Is that possible. Guess, it’s ok to shell out an amount for a sticky premium if such feature is available. You see, we fear that others may try to vandalize the wall or post inappropriate content. Without said security add-on, using this on our site become problematic. I really hope that I receive a response to this. Thanks. J. Grandea

  2. To whom it may concern:

    I don’t know if this is the right place to request something, if not please direct me to someone who can help.

    I would like a small window added to my main page that has all my email accounts already logged in. It would be cool if I logged into lino and on the right hand side all my email accounts were right there showing me I have mail. In addition I should be able to click on each account and a separate window opens up to my inbox. You could also throw in facebook as well. This way lino truly becomes my one stop desk top.

    If this already exists on lino, please direct me to directions on how to do this.
