Natara Bonsai Comments

Bonsai is not just a task manager but also an outliner

Comment by dr_andus
about Natara Bonsai and The Guide, Inspiration, Noteliner Jul 2013

At the moment all the alternatives for Bonsai seem to be to-do list type software. However, Bonsai it's not just a to-do list manager. When the to-do functionality is switched off, it is a full-featured outliner, i.e. a writing application. Therefore it should be also listed as an alternative to other single- or dual-pane outliners such as UV Outliner, Noteliner, The Guide or Inspiration.
