Always wanted to use this PIM because it has E-Mail integrated.
But the E-Mail function lacks too many obvious functions, like
blocking external web-content.

Starts with an upgrade ad every other start, does anyone know how to disable? Must click skip to go to program.

Optionally, to save each note as an individual text file (the default database file is not easily readable by other programs), create a folder (e.g. Notes) and enter the name of that directory into the File Directory blank under the Storage tab (relative pathways like ..\Notes work fine). Existing notes in this folder will be automatically added.

They're all good choices @Midas thanks, I'll be trying them, I think Android Apps are yet to evolve a lot

Midas on 2016-04-13 13:12

After writing my previous comment, I stumbled upon iA Writer (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.ia.iawriter) which turned into my current favorite Android editor/noter... =)

As noted in forum topic, ResophNotes v1.6.0 released, dated 2018-01-14 (no changelog, but 64-bit only)...

Ennovy on 1 Jul 2018
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 26 Mar 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

TreeSheets is a mashup of many different program types including spreadsheets, mind mappers, outliners, PIMs, text editors and small databases. It has a tabbed interface and is lightweight and fast, using few system resources even with large files.

It's like a spreadsheet, but much more suitable for complex data because it's hierarchical. It's like a mind mapper, but more organized and compact. It's like an outliner, but in more than one dimension. It's like a text editor, but with structure. It is capable of many kinds of data organization, including todo lists, calendars, project management, brainstorming, organizing ideas, planning, requirements gathering, presentation of information, etc.

Functional in 64-bit and cross platform (Linux and Mac).

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder. All settings written to TreeSheets.ini.

  3. Launch TreeSheets.exe -p

@Realist: so the program is rubbish because you don't understand how it works and what it does.

smaragdus on 2016-10-07 20:05

Why are you feeding the troll?

Thanks smaragdus.

will not load just comes up with errors that plugins will not load then nothing

shnbwmn on 2018-05-14 04:33

@Sinchu

From the dev:

"This sounds like windows marked the dll files as untrusted.

Try going to the properties dialog of each file (right-click -> properties) and clicking the unblock button."

Someone else on the forum said that using 7-Zip to extract the ZIP worked for them.
