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?

WhizFolders reviews

I really appreciate the responsiveness and the polished piece of work that you've created. I've experimented with a few other notetaking apps in the past few years but Whizfolders is my go-to app for personal notetaking and study. It's a good thing that Whizfolders has been so solid over the years and I hope it continues to work under the upcoming Windows 11. With everyone seeming to want their data to be in the "cloud" these days there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of innovation in new and updated apps in the PC notetaking/PIM category because, I suspect, there isn't a whole lot of money to be made from new users. I, for one, have no interest in making my phone the primary place to store important notes

I should have bought this app earlier. It's really helpful. Many, many years ago I used to write my texts with MaxThink, which I really loved. Now I feel like coming home again. Writing long texts is almost impossible if you only have a normal word processor. The hierarchical writing with Whizfolders can make anybody a writer. You see what's missing and can fill out the holes. You see your own way of thinking and you can correct it easily.

As a published author of two non-fiction business books, I had been looking for many years for a note capturing, RTF editing suite, random topic arranger, outliner, etc. The program that works for me is WhizFolders. The company has kept up with changing technology but not to the extent of veering from the mission to satisfy writers and researchers.

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.
