Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

CherryTree reviews

Good-looking and feature-full note taking software. Not just for programmers but for writers and researchers as well.

- xvhpqg

I was looking for an open source alternative to Workflowy. This is about as close as I could get. The UI isn't all that modern, but it is fairly configurable. You can change the fonts used and their sizes. The size of the toolbar items can be changed, you can actually make them really big. In my case I disabled the toolbar; the icons mix badly with a dark theme. The other thing that is a bit annoying is the icons. They are tiny and quite dated too. Maybe a nitpick on my part? Still, at least you can change the default entry icon from the cherry to any of the options they provide, such as a dot, like in a bullet list. I'm happy with this application. It does everything I need it to do well, without subscriptions or needless cloud dependency.

Fantastic note-taking app, probably the best in the business in that it isn't cloud based, works windows and linux, and supports encryption and has tons of features. The only major problem I have with it is that nearly every Linux distro out there is removing CherryTree from their standard repos. I can't get it after Debian 9, Fedora 30, or CentOS 7. Even Manjaro doesn't include it anymore. Anyone have any idea why?

Pros & cons

CherryTree

Pros
Feature rich (hierarchical notes, tables, code boxes, image import, db import/export, etc.)
Not bloated with features you don't need
Super easy to keep all your notes on dissimilar topics all in one place, well organized and easily navigatable
A very sophisticated note taking and text-copying tool

Cons
It is mostly for people undertaking technical tasks
The tool is not a convenience tool as other note-taking apps are
No mobile :/ sometimes you need it..
and not, I don't want to use joplin, is nowhere near the same
UI the first time is weird
It seems from the roadmap this will change for better
No custom icons in a easy way :/ yes sometimes you need it
Either way, you can change it or add more icons there is a topic on how to do it on github.

MindMeister

Pros
I had a boss who liked to use mind mapping software but I never understood why until I tried it with MindMeister
MindMeister makes it so easy to create great looking mind maps as well as diagrams
There are many tools available but the mindmaps by MindMeister seems to be the perfect fit
The concept of mindmaps with connections make the task easy and effective
Really easy to get the hang of
I love the ability to add notes and attachments in my maps
I use mind map to manage my web projects for years
And MindMeister is a great tool for me to manage my projects and fulfill my "co-work" needs."

Cons
My students sometimes have problems retireving maps - especially if they have started a map and only worked on it for a few minutes
The only annoying detail i've come across so far is that formatting is lost when undoing a move, which i'm sure is fixable in future updates
The only thing I do not like is the way connections between separate ideas are drawn: those green lines look hideous and are pretty inconvenient to use
When I was invoiced another 12-months, I requested a refund advising that I had forgot to cancel they refused
As a small business we are now out of pocket for something we aren't going to use."
