Start menu guide

After launching the app, you will see the Nimbus login page. If you already have a Nimbus account, use your username and password to sign in. If you don’t have an account, you can register a new one. You also can choose to work without signing in, but doing so won’t allow you to clip web pages or save screenshots to Nimbus Note.
