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.

Spikenow

Pros
I really like the clear and clean interface, I love simple and non-confusing things
It has everything it takes to get into the toolbox of marketing
The incredibly fast customer service - The CS team is really fast (and personable, and friendly and helpful) when I have an issue
And I feel super well-taken-care-of
I love the way it takes out the extra elements in a mail like images and branding, and makes it 100% text
Which helps you get to the point and understand what need to be understood.

Cons
Their business approach is misleading - they actually alter the contents of your emails without clearly stating they will do so
The organization got very confusing when one person wrote to more than one of my accounts
It got worse when I wanted to write a new email to a person who wrote me at more than one account
Some of the more advanced features still need some work
I'd love to see tagging in notes (so collaboration would be smoother), or the option to add a call link into an invite directly (like in Google Calendar).
