The software has hit potential and is the better Evernote for me
Compared to Evernote
lighter and faster
Easier to use
Great simple tagging
Can be called from Windows with CTRL+WIN+I - that's great
I have used MyInfo since 2011 and find it indispensable for my own research projects, and for keeping track of projects, emails and related files, and data at work. It allows you to rapidly locate information anywhere in your database and cross-link and back-link documents and even individual paragraphs.
Once you start using it, you'll wonder why it is not more popular.
It has an impressive number of features - that is why I purchased it. However, despite multiple exchanges with the author, the Search tools remain incomprehensibly unusable. All I wanted was: I type any text string and MyInfo finds a Note with that text in it. But that does not work. The darn thing requires me to learn some special syntax just to find something as simple as "John Smith" (!) I had to stop using it and went back to TreePad Business Edition. At least that one has a normal Search tool. Sooooo disappointed!
Note-taking application with a very handy workflow for collecting, organizing, and retrieving information. MyInfo interface resembles OneNote but has more powerful searching like Evernote. Going beyond OneNote/Evernote, MyInfo provides a unique set of tools such as:
