Comments about Obsidian as a Alternative to CherryTree
Very similar format. Obsidian will be better for most people as it has many plugins.
CherryTree is faster and open-source.0
I don't see a way to import webpages in Obisidian like I do with CherryTree if you save a webpage as CompleteHtml. I'm still new with it all, but I somehow find CherryTree easier to use and more organized.0
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.-1

Comments about Joplin as a Alternative to CherryTree
Wasn't impressed w/Joplin first time, but now that I have CherryTree, I reinstalled Joplin to compare. I quickly notice that I can't import webpages like with CherryTree complete html import. Then when I paste an article clipping into Joplin, it doesn't show the imported clickable links like CherryTree and Obsidian do. Uninstalling again.0

Microsoft OneNote, part of the Microsoft 365 (Office), is a digital notebook application that gives people one place to gather notes and information. It also offers shared notebooks, syncing between multiple computers and devices via Windows...
Microsoft OneNote Features
Comments about Microsoft OneNote as a Alternative to CherryTree
Sync between devices, snappier interface...1
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.4
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.1
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-2
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.0
Zim brings the concept of a wiki to your desktop. Store information, link pages and edit with WYSISYG markup or directly typing some lightweight markup syntax and see it previewed as-you-type. Creating a new page is easy by either clicking on the "Create new note"...
Comments about Zim as a Alternative to CherryTree
Same concept, but stores data in plain text file, so you can browse your notes even without the app. For example on Android with any text editor.1
I prefer Zim because it is clean, can portable, and saves to .txt.0
I use Zim & CherryTree both.1
Unlike CherryTree, Zim hates Windows with a passion, and it's no longer supported as of 2019. Also, no dark theme. CT's UI feels snappier, faster. Other than that, Zim & CT are very close.-1
WYSIWYG editor, hierarchical structure, plain text files, versioning (handles git). Great tool!3

Comments about Simplenote as a Alternative to CherryTree
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.2
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).0
Not the same. No multi-level sub-folder system.18
I can't add images to the notes0
Does not have hierarchical note ability14
