    1. Work OS is far more than a project management tool. It is an intuitive platform that helps transform the way teams work together, meet deadlines, and build a culture of transparency.

      UI, design is just bad. UX is not even close to CherryNotes.

    4. With so many tools, it's hard to keep everyone on the same page. Notion is a new tool that unifies them all. It's like Google Docs, but everything is organized and discoverable by your team. Real collaboration in real-time.

    5. A second brain, for you, forever. The human brain is non-linear: we jump from idea to idea, all the time. Your second brain should work the same.

      andgregorik CherryTree feels like an ancient WIP beta of Obsidian. I used to be a CT guy for 2 yrs but as of late 2020 I'm an Obsidian convert. It does everything that CT can but with panache and speed. And of course it does a lot more.

      snshepherd They both have very similar features, but a different method of presentation (i.e., UI/UX). OneNote uses a notebook tab appearance for its sections, sub-sections, pages, etc., CherryTree uses a simple tree-like structure with branches, nodes, etc., all displayed visually in a pane on the side of the window.

      The OneNote has a potential to be the best note app, but Microsoft has cripplied it on Mac and other platforms. I cannot create a note on Windows and send the file over to open on a Mac. Plus I am forced to use Microsoft's OneDrive for storing my notes unless I have a paid subscription.

      priang OneNote hasn't a good search mechanism. When you search for a term the just show the notes where we can find, not the places on the notes, it highlight but don't offers a way to do that easely. Differently from cherrytree.

      the fact you cant host the notes yourself can be a bummer but apart from that it is a fantastic note-taking software, the UI looks modern and is very smooth

      Cherrytree is OS independent, runs faster and has better view for tree as OneNote.

      This alternative is disputed. Simplenote is still a legitimate alternative to CherryTree, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

      Not the same. No multi-level sub-folder system.

      It is not the equal of cherry notes. It is a great note ap for all three. I have been using cherry tree for several years and it is great. I will use the android version when it comes out. I use simple note with cherry notes and I will continue as it is a good lite weight application and easy to use and quick.

      Just as easy to use as Cherry tree and is multi-platform. (no cherry tree on Mac). I have to use Windows (work). I use Mac (home) use Ubuntu for work notes. (my choice).

      The tree format and sub headings/folders/documents that Cherry Tree has, is why it's a great free program. Evernote doesn't have that and it's not really free.
