    Microsoft OneNote vs CherryTree opinions
    Some users think Microsoft OneNote is a great alternative to CherryTree, some don't.

    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.

    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

    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.

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

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

    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).

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

    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.
