I'm not sure if it always needs to be as formal as a cover letter, but yeah, I'd say a personal note to go along with the CV would help your cause a lot. It helps de-genericize you as a candidate.

Yeah I think is depending on the company, I was looking for apply for a job in Facebook, Amazon and others, and the cover letter was optional but for these companies are important that you take some minutes and write down about who you are, what did you do in anothers jobs, goals and achievements.

You said something important:

So I'll take time to write down my cover letter the best that I can.

Thank you.
