Impressive list of outliners/note-taking apps
« on: July 24, 2008, 01:53:41 AM »
Hi all,

I wanted to share with you this impressive list of outliners/note-taking apps grabbed from outlinersoftware.com

I'm still looking for the perfect outliner program (and I've tried so many!)...

Cheers  /jerome

That's one HUGE list!  :'(

I'm quite content with WinOrganizer which is a calendar/ to-do/password vault/address book & more, in addition to being a notes taking app. It may not be as comprehensive as some other apps but you don't need to spend hours learning how to use it either. And though I have several copies of my data backed up all over the place, it's still nice to know that I've never lost a single bit of information to a crash in the 2+ years (IIRC) of using it daily.

via the comments:-
PPLandry (dc member/author of SQLNotes) has put
this list in an online spreadsheet, with read/write access to all, as in this one where I’ve imported the original list:

Anybody can add/edit the info, sort, etc

The list was getting corrupted due to bad sorting...

So to make this sharing experience:

1- It would be best if users would register, that way, we’d see who modified what, and could be advised if another roll-back is required
2- When sorting, make sure you select all columns and check “Has header row”, this will leave the first row at the top.

I think that for the benefit of all (and as I have little time to spend on this), I’ll restrict the usage somewhat:

- The list is now read-only by default
- To make changes, click the UnLock button at the bottom and enter the password: outliners

Hopefully, this will avoid corruption. Again, it would help if users registered…

If this password approach does not help, we can use community access or invitation-based e-mail access methods.

Happy outlining…
