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.

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?

MiniNote – Write Quick Notes reviews

Why do developers upgrade their applications to higher OS's as well as make them only available through the MAS, thereby making it impossible for users with older OS's to use the older versions? Developer: You have a nice app and you still have the versions that work on older OS's why not make these versions available via your website or some cloud filesharing site? The latter wouldn't cost you a penny. In addition, these people would then likely get your newest version of the app when they upgrade to a newer OS. Just provide a caveat of no support for the older version anymore.

I like it for what it is and for its cost. It's an easy to use and easy access notepad for taking quick notes while doing other things. I use a more comprehensive app, Growly Notes, for extended, organized note taking, but just for jotting things down on the fly, this works great. I only give it a "3" for features because it doesn't have a lot, but I don't expect a lot either for this type of note-taking app. Don't understand the complaints about cut & paste not working; both work for me. I am commenting on ver. 1.5

Not bad, but not that user friendly as is. requires that you keep going back to the note list manually after closing and opening again from the menubar, otherwise stays on the same page you left it, including the settings tab. Changing the font on one word changes the font on the entire database. Also a bit sluggish when changing page/tabs. Starting a new search requires highlighting and deleting of the previous word, there is no X button. Just some minor things.

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.

MiniNote – Write Quick Notes

Pros
Star notes to pin them to the top of the list
Time stamps for each note you create
Share notes via Email, Facebook and Twitter
