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?

Somnote reviews

I've been using this app for YEARS, I love it, its awesome! Simple yet very efficient. The ability to sync and access it from anywhere and with any device is awesome. It has truly saved me multiple times when my phone broke and I needed important notes I had saved on SomNote. There was a point where the ads on the free version were getting really out of hand, but it's gotten back to being bearable now. Thank you for an awesome app!

I am able to write notes easily, the first line gives the note a title. The notes are easily organized into labeled, colored folders. I access my notes on each of my devices through synching to Somcloud. After using Somnote for a few years, I find it a very useful app to dictate text for transfer to word processor files. I also use it to record the eureka thoughts to preserve them for later development.

Great app, but no feature to export notes, this feature is absolutely required for a note taking app, to make backups and edit notes on your own PC when necessary. Please add this simple but important feature and you get 5 stars. Thanks

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.
