  • 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:
Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder. All settings written to TreeSheets.ini.
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes

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

@Smaragdus: you are right, of course

Can sort by title or last modified date and able to email/print notes from app. Includes an easy indent system and support for markdown (text-to-HTML conversion) with preview. Can recover delete note(s), import text (.txt) file(s), import Outlook exported .csv file and Toodledo Notebook .csv file.

The program can sync securely online with the Simplenote service, which itself has a long list of possible software beyond ResophNotes, including for mobile devices like the iPhone, Android, and others.

How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch ResophNotes.exe.

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... =)

Latest stable version is 2.0_1, a release candidate for 2.1 and a beta for 2.2 are also available. Does extraction still work and make it portable?

Midas on 2014-03-06 15:42

The difference between (Uni)extraction and choosing portable with the installer is mainly the creation of an 'export' sub-folder and a 'binInst.ini' with the following content:

[Main]
CurrVersion=002.002.300.000
wxVersion=002.008.010.001
portableInstall=1

It's true, "Trying it is adopting it!"

I finally got down to using this for interlinked notes and now I can't imagine going back to anything else. What really sets it apart is the on-the-fly nature of editing. OutWiker is a bit more advanced but it's tedious in comparison.
