An alternative to OneNote with AllMyNotes Organizer

I recently wrote of my waning interest in Microsoft Word. It’s too big, it’s too bulky and has so many features I simply don’t use. With that in mind I’ve been using OneNote for a lot more of my writing. It’s excellent for writing down my ideas and having them on the screen as I write. But, OneNote isn’t exactly cheap and the latest versions, specifically OneNote 2013 are awful.

With that I mind I went searching for some alternative and found something I think is really good. AllMyNotes Organizer is a nice Rich Text Editor that features the ability to create a tree structure with folders and subfolders, search, alarms/reminders and multiple projects open at the same time.

Just like OneNote it’s very useful for gathering up ideas and having them on the same page as what you’re writing. You can capture web pages, images, insert documents and have everything collated together for your subject. I’ve been using it at work to write notes about the technical issues I’m working on.

Like OneNote it uses the single database format to store all your items together. This makes it easy to store on a thumbdrive or Dropbox. It also has a nice AutoSave feature that kicks in on whatever schedule you choose as well as saving when the document your working on loses focus. Seems pretty unlikely you’re going to lose any of your work.

It doesn’t have all the features such as on-the-fly spell checking, although it will manually do it, and it doesn’t support the multiple “text boxes” that OneNote uses. I miss that feature since it allows me to have all my ideas and my actual article right next to each other. But then again, I don’t know of another app that does let you work that way.

But anyway, it’s still a great note taking tool with formatting, task list, rich text editor, a nice tree structure, text export and lots of other goodies. It’s great for taking notes while you work as well as writing down story ideas. Might come in handy for the month of November.

And I even have a sweet deal to pass along. How about a 71% off Coupon to purchase the full version? There is indeed a free version, but at this price there’s no reason not to get the Deluxe version.

Instead of the normal $34 price tag, which is still significantly cheaper than OneNote, you can get AllMyNotes for a mere $9.86. Just type in INDIA71 (it has to be all caps) to get $24 off. This price is good for the rest of the month and like I said, it could help with your novel writing this month.

And they have an excellent licensing system. You can use AllMyNotes on as many machines as you like as long as you’re the one using it. There is also a portable edition so you can always have a copy with you. I like their style!

Try it out and let me know what you think!
