# 56 (Vladonai):
Since you've been very cooperative with everybody here ---which is rare enough to be noted and appreciated--- I think it's worth posting a last remark.

I know what a portable app is. The fact that your installer do not ask whether to associate .ddb files or not before installation begins is not a bug. It is a misconception. Very easy to fix: just not do it automatically (e.g. add a checkbox below the choice of folder).

But yes, there is at least one bug. It can be found in Tools/Options/Tools/Startup. The widget "Check if [...]" does not adapt its size to its contents: For French, its height is too small so the text label is cut to the point it is not understandable.

#86, I do not have any special file permissions on my system. The problem was caused because I tried to install the new version to a different location than my previous copy was stored. Then I uninstalled the previous version. I probably got the error messages because the file was not designed to be run from another location.

I was able to get the program installed but it does not show up in the list of programs. Other things show up such as previous database backups from the previous installation. But I don't remember if I ever entered data into it, so I am not sure if I have lost anything. I was able to make a shortcut that would load 2.77. (But it still does not show up in the All Programs list. It only shows up as a shortcut and various database files etc but no exe)

It might work fine now. (I might have lost data I am not sure.) I am afraid something is going to go wrong because I have AllMyNotes in C:\, C:\Program Files, and C:\Program Files x86 (The first 2 have an .exe in them that works, the third one has 2 files in it that are not an .exe)

To #83 (Brenda): I presume you have strict file access permissions on the folder where you've installed app to, try different folder, or, create new (clean) one.

When a setup program presents a dialog entitled 'WinRAR self-extracting archive' and asks me for a folder for 'extraction', I expect that setup simply wants to unpack itself to the directory I entered. (Only a few programs bother with this; most just make a directory in my system temp folder and then go about their business. That always works, though I wish more would clean up when finished.)
Following extraction the setup process will(I expect) ask me to specify a target directory, among other things, and then perform the actual install steps. But that's not how this setup.exe works. I now have your product installed to "D:\temp\AllMyNotes Organizer Portable"
rather than "C:\Program Files\Vladonai\AllMyNotes" as I had intended.
Perhaps the GOTD crew, having become familiar with each day's setup, could help here: in readme.txt don't just tell me to run setup.exe - I kinda figured that. Tell me what setup is going to ask and what the prompts really mean when they are unclear.

I previously had 2.74. I didn't want it to install to C\: I wanted it in program files so I changed the destination folder. When I tried to start it, it would only show the 2.74 version. I uninstalled 2.74. Now it shows 2.77, but when I look under Programs it is not there. (I didn't know whether to install to Progams or Programs x86. I put it in Programs. It doesn't seem like this was the right choice because I keep getting error messages. What do I need to do to fix the problem? I reinstalled it and let it go to C:\ like it wanted to but I don't know if this is correct.

Allow user to open embedded URL in note with double click (as MS Word Pad does)or by CTRL right-click as does Open Office.
This would be a significant improvement.

Giovanni (#19), WTH are you talking about?

Giovanni, your post today was near ridiculous. I've read many of your comments over the past -- many -- and they've almost always been helpful, if not necessarily valuable. But your comment today was very misleading and very non-helpful.

Just to cut to the chase:

1) You touted Vole(http://www.sanwhole.com/vole-magic-note.html).
Vole is a timeline oriented system, something geared toward online diaries or journals. Every screenshot shown for Vole has a freaking timeline as the content organization display and selector. That is *not* what most people think of when thinking of a Note and Information management system. In those, semantics, tags, projects, tasks, etc. are generally far more important than dates on which a particular note was taken. Vole doesn't even come *close* to competing with or comparing with today's AllMyNotes offering! Why would you suggest it does as an alternative to AllMyNotes?

2) You touted ResophNotes (http://www.resoph.com/ResophNotes/Welcome.html)
I checked it out, and it too doesn't come even close to offering what AllMyNotes and other information management systems offer. Their website is ridiculous, too. (Take a look if you don't believe me.) Both their site and their produce seem absolutely bare bones. Why would you suggest it as an alternative to AllMyNotes?

3) You touted Zotero (http://www.zotero.org/)
Zotero is cool, but not as a general note taking and information management system. It is by and large a system for managing large numbers of PDF documents related to some research project, finding other people's PDFs and such that are related to your research papers, etc. It doesn't even truly compare to AllMyNotes (or Evernote, OneNote, GTD, etc.). Why would you suggest it as an alternative to AllMyNotes?

It's amazing when someone wants to compare two software systems just because they can each keep and manage notes. It's the way notes are managed, retrieved, cross-linked, updated, organized, etc. that determines what they are best suited for. My doctor keeps notes on me based on my visits, tests, etc. I can see him using systems like some mentioned today, but if he even thought of using Zotero or Resoph notes, I'd change doctors overnight.

And if I learned that any of my grad students had been using something other than Zotero, Evernote, OneNote, and their ilk, I'd definitely discuss his choice in our next meeting.

I can't believe you suggested such nonsense today as credible alternatives to AllMyNotes and the other good systems other people have mentioned today. Your ridiculous post has cost me precious time by following your leads and exploring those alternative.

Maybe you were just having a down day today.

What? Please "buy it simply to support our hard work"?

Gee, I worry that I'm nitpicking here, but I don't like to see messages from a publisher like this:

[Speaking of their discounted Pro version:]
"buy it simply to support our hard work, hope we deserve this reward from you :)"

I thoroughly understand the Publisher's intent and honest request, so I'm not heavily deriding this particular publisher's solicitation. However, statements such as those generally trigger the "am I freeloading by not paying" sense of guilt. Well, given the goals of GOTD, I think "clearly not." After all, the publisher derives distinct benefits and value from all of us here on GOTD trying out these new and/or updated software programs. We give feedback, we suggest alternatives that we might think superior, we have to eventually pay for the software once the free year expires -- if we consider the system worth keeping, thereby becoming new, paying customers, and many of us probably provide feedback concerning bugs, glitches, and inconveniences. Thus it seems to me that there is a fair trade here, a "value for value" relationship, and that we are in a sense actually already "supporting [their] hard work." And yes, surely they deserve this.

I really hope the publishers don't think this is a one-way value delivery event. I don't think it is.

And thanks, Vladonai, for this offer.

I hope I'm not overly nitpicking.

Thanks to Vladonai Software + GOTD.
The UI is good enough. No issues there.

I just use a bare bones way. Write notes on text files using EditpadLite (freeware) and search them using Locate32 (freeware). Locate32 can even search for content within the files.

The files can be anywhere in your PC. Locate 32 will find them instantly.

Regarding importing pages, simply copy-paste the from your browser, should work or majority of browsers.

I can only agree with the many comments above that AllMyNotes is very nice software.

I'd just like to add that having mobile APPs would really complete the picture and make this the market standard. So having iOS, Android and Windows Phone subsets would be great. But to carry this off properly I can see the following attributes:

1) Sync between APPs and desktop handled by the main PC software

2) Allow for WiFi sync

3) Provide for cloud (and email) upload/download in both updates and backups

4) Allow for "open" and "strictly private" content especially as related to the cloud support. Thus notes can by uploaded to the cloud and retrieved by the "office"

5) Support "scan-by-camera" function in the mobile APPs

Did I miss anything? ;) Truly I can see this as a global platform to facilitate inexpensive communication even when an internet terminal is unavailable. ie. Can you imagine how useful such a system could be to a "Jane Goodall" ?

Thanks for the opportunity to review your software. Although I was familiar with it by name, I had never tried it until today. Pity.

Thank you very much for this software. I am 68-yo female, who has 20 some yrs with computers, but just cannot get my arms around free version of Evernote. I read people who just love it, but I don't think they are talking about the free version.

I appreciate this software and the gentleman developer who has been on this page consistently to answer questions. That is a good sign, I think. I look forward to learning the ropes with the software, which is something that I just could not do with Evernote beyond a few notes and that's it.

Good luck in the future to developer and his crew. He left a good impression with me.

Have a good look at what this program can do - rather than decide based on comments from people who use different programs who seem to be making assumptions about what it it can do based on the brief description and its name. Then look at the comments from people who have actually used it for an extended period. Then consider the response from the author based on comments made in this thread. Finally consider the special offer of a 70%+ discount.

I've just tried the program out with the main things I would use it for and based on that plus the comments from people who have used it for a while, I've bought the program on special offer and paid $11.95 USD (=£7.52 GBP)for the following ...

Application: AllMyNotes Organizer
Edition: Deluxe
Number of licenses: 1 (single user, can be installed on your PC, notebook, and USB media at a same time)<- note: one license lets you use it on all your stuff!
Expiration: Never expires
Version: 2, all minor updates - free. Plus, free Major updates during 12 months after purchase date.

I paid via PayPal - and received an email within a couple of seconds giving my activation code. I installed the GotD download and entered my name, email, and activation code. Result = fully working program licensed to me.

OK, the creator is Ukranian, the English is quirky, but his English is infinitely better than my Ukranian (I don't do German, French, Norwegian, Swedish etc etc etc either.) Where the guy was born is irrelevant - what matters is how good the software is.

Folks- Jump on this right now!! If you don't like, uninstall.

I have switched from one info manager to another every 2-3 years - very painful so I didn't want to change again (in middle of updating two older to my newest prior) I was turned off by all the icons. (Don't need, and I don't use) happened to look a second time and I am a very happy for about the last 3-4 years. These people are wonderful to work with and super fast to reply to my infrequent questions. Of the hundreds of programs I have from 30 years of computing this is #1. Giovanni how do you know (try?use?)all these programs? .. I'm always on the lookout I haven't heard of any of your alternatives (I'd have a long list of dead ends. Evernote I use but remain a noobie .. but you have motivated me to revisit. More later ..

I really like this program. I purchased the deluxe version a couple months ago after using a previous GAOTD version. I think this is one of the best software purchases I have made...especially including MS Office 2013. I had Evernote at one time (a couple computers ago) and didn't have much of a need for it at the time, so I never got "addicted" to it. I had AMN on my most recent desktop and bought the deluxe version so that I could share with my laptop. Well, the desktop died, but I can still carry on with my laptop. And when I get another desktop I will be able to install AMN on it. This program is a real winner, and with the discount is inexpensive to upgrade. Well worth the price.

Downloaded and installed fine here. Nice little program. I use a ridiclously expensive ($50 per year or $250 at once) program called Info Select that is great, except that it's restricted to accessing it by the computer it's installed on only -- meaning you can't access your info from somewhere else via a web interface (tho it is portable via thumb-drive on other computers).

I've been trying to get happy with Evernote, which has a lot of good qualities, but also a bunch of things I find to be awkward.

A couple programs that I've found to be similar to this that have good free versions are "Maple", by Crystal Office, and RightNote, at www.bauerapps.com. RightNote integrates with Evernote, which is pretty handy.

I would definitely consider using AllMyNotes, except that it doesn't have one feature both Maple and RightNote have, which is the ability to "link" different notes to each other so that if you have info that is related to more than one category (for instance info related to a hobby but also to "Finances", you can link the two notes and just click a link to go from one to the other quickly.

Otherwise, this seems very good, but some folks may want to look into those other two as well.

I'd be very happy to discover that I'm mistaken about AllMyNotes not having this "link" capability, but as far as I've been able to tell, it doesn't...

Happy Holidays to all, from freezing Boston (and yep, I know it's even worse in lots of the US right now, brrrrr....)

Thanks GAOTD, for this great program.

I have also got some updates on the features of Evernote:-

Evernote provides a comprehensive single archive of your digital life, giving you one location to store and find practically everything saved on a computer or phone. And the files are automatically backed up on Evernote’s servers. It even makes sharing things with others far easier than emailing attachments around — but it will do that, too.

The only real downside with Evernote is that it has so many features, which can make getting started with the app daunting. But once you understand how to do a few things with it, you can get working and worry about the rest later.

Here’s the big point to understand: Use Evernote as the place you put everything you might need later. You can drag it in, tap it in or forward it in, and then search for it, share it or post it later. When you need to dig it up, you don’t first ask yourself which device it’s on — it’s in Evernote, from whatever device is at hand.
The free version of the app lets you add up to 60 megabytes of content to your folders every month, enough for a couple of dozen full-size iPhone photos or a hundred big Word documents. The archive can grow as big as it needs to be. The premium version costs $5 a month, which increases the limit to a gigabyte a month, enough for hundreds of photos, and adds a few more features for heavy users.
To begin, download Evernote onto every computer and mobile device you own and create an account. Evernote works on Windows and Mac computers, and on iPhones, iPads, Android and Windows phones and tablets, BlackBerry devices, and even Hewlett-Packard’s WebOS gadgets. In other words, you should be covered. The interface is a little different on each platform, so plan a few minutes to figure out each one.

The best way to start is to toss a photo into Evernote. You can drag and drop an image from anywhere on a computer desktop to the Evernote app, or select the photo icon from the mobile version of Evernote to choose a photo already on your phone. Within a few minutes, the photo will be synced to Evernote’s servers and available on your other devices. By default, everything goes into one folder, but you can create new folders to keep things better organized.
The same trick works for Word files, PDFs, spreadsheets, MP3s and even videos.

And it’s possible to move files to the service even if you don’t have the app installed on the particular device you are on. Each Evernote user is given an email address for the account, and sending a file to that address will save it into the account. It’s a nice trick that lets you forward emails and attachments to Evernote for keeping. You can even specify which folder each forwarded message goes into by putting the destination folder in the subject line, like “@family-photos.”

You can also save the contents of web pages into Evernote. To do so on a desktop or laptop, install the Evernote Web Clipper found on the Products page at Evernote.com. It’s a web browser add-on that creates an extra button on your browser in the shape of Evernote’s elephant logo. Click it, and you’ll be prompted for how much of the page to save. For news articles, recipes or reviews, Simplified Article is best. It strips away the surrounding links and ads, and saves only the text and images of the main content of a page. The Web Clipper isn’t built for phone or tablet browsers, but someone has filled the void with an app called EverWebClipper for iOS and Android that costs about $3 and does the job.

Getting items out of Evernote is easy. Once you find the desired file in the app, use the Export Note menu option on a computer or tap the icon at the bottom of the screen on the mobile interface to export the item to your phone. Then send it as a message or post it to Facebook.

To find something you’ve saved, Evernote has a search function that will find just about any text anywhere in a saved file — it’ll even recognize text inside a photo. That makes it possible to use your phone as an archival scanner, by taking pictures of printed pages and then searching for words in these documents later. One important caveat: The free version of the app won’t search the text inside Word or PDF documents. For that you need the premium upgrade.

Individual items or entire folders can be shared with other people. Look for the arrow icon at the upper right of an item to create a public URL. Once you have that URL, you can send it to others so they can view your items or folders. The premium version also lets you allow other Evernote users to add content to your folders. This can be useful for group planning — say, for a trip for which several people want to collect suggested sights. You’re not restricted to sharing within Evernote, though. The same arrow button presents options to post an item to Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, or to forward it as an email attachment.

At first, Evernote may seem redundant to existing tools like email and iCloud, but the service is hard to give up after a week’s use. You won’t want to return to a life of running from device to device for your files. If you start to use the program frequently, you’ll probably find that the premium upgrade makes a lot of sense. With the upgrade, you will have a hard time reaching the storage limit unless you are saving a lot of video. Second, it allows you to search within documents, which can come in incredibly handy. Third, it will let you store copies of important items on your computer or phone, an inevitable lifesaver for anyone who travels without reliable Internet access.

If you are mono-linguistic, then Ukrainian probably bugs you. If you never get outside of your house, this is probably a big issue for you. Кинути нити. To worldly individuals it is a grain of sand ...

Quit complaining about non-native English speakers' and writers' grammar and spelling. Not only do you appear ungracious but substantially immature to boot. Not all of us are so futilely myopic (Hint: it is the WORLD-WIDE web); you give us Americans a bad name. (Leave the presidential imitator to his work of insulting/embarrassing us all to the world.) When the shoe is on the other foot, you will discover that you are being the east end of a donkey facing west. Besides, most here still need work on their own language skills.

Not unlikely most offerings here, installation is marginal or ineffective (win7 ultimate/cursed 64 bit). Three installs and only the installer can find the software folder ....

Who would make a portable software that defaults to C:\? No one on my staff that wants to be employed tomorrow.

Well, got numerous XP machines to test this download on, so I'm off for now. I could have really liked this offering.

Installed fine on Windows 7, 64-bit. I like this but I seem to recall that a lot of us complained about the text being too small & unable to alter the size....it doesn't seem to have been changed in this version. I know you can set the font & size in the text that you write, but all the menu text is still teeny tiny. I'll keep it, though.

Long ago I liked infonote, which just took notes, no categories, no folders, worked very well. However it went defunct Cinta notes (Free) I use on my computer. I use ANY.DO to take notes that will synch on all devices seamlessly. There is a chrome extension for yr desktop. Very simple (but could be simpler) and am very glad I do not have to use Evernote.

I'm an organizer junkie -- I doubt there's anything I haven't tried at least once, and I've spend hundreds of dollars on them. I try AllMyNotes each time they come out with an upgrade, hoping it'll be better. But it's a completely average organizer with one of the ugliest, hard-to-read interfaces I've ever seen, and I consider it adequate and mediocre at best. You can't beat the price on this offer, though, and Vladonai gets extra marks for how well they support the program. But truthfully, there are many much, much better ones. MyNotesKeeper, even as poorly supported as it is, runs circles around AMN. My hands-down-favorite is RightNote. I've used it every day for three years and have most of my life & business in its databases, and there's nothing else on the market that comes close to it. And no, I don't work for them! And as always, thanks GOTD for giving us a chance to check these proggies out!

Gave it a test drive off the MFG site, looks nice. And the price, is right.
The reason this software and comparables are handy, is it locates our files amongst the vast depository of stored files and folders. My solution for this is, a free desktop search program called EVERYTHING. Simply amazing.

I risked buying it last time for ~$10 (which is today's offer also). Luckily, I wound up loving it. I store organized info and URLs.

For example, Under a category I named "GAOTD", I have various categories naming types of programs (e.g., "Backup/Image", "Startup/Task Manager", ...), into which I screen-scrape helpful comments (lots of Giovanni's comments in there). Yesterday I needed an image backup program, so looked in that category and found Aomei recommended by Giovanni and others but then found someone else saying he failed to restore three machines using Aomei so I am now looking into Drivesnapshot and Macrium, which were also recommended.

AllMyNotes is my new memory. As much as I put in it, I would have to buy a paid Evernote subscription. And it's right there on my PC, so faster than Evernote.

I use it mostly on one PC, so haven't looked into the latest synchronization capabilities. Instead, I just have auto backups go to SkyDrive, and when on other PCs (the license allowed by the dev is generous, all your PCs, not just 3), I just read in the copy on SkyDrive. I also occasionally save text and .rtf backups in Dropbox for use on my Android phone, if necessary, though I haven't had to access it on my phone yet, so haven't tested it to see if either format is an acceptable emergency approach. I think the developer is considering some Android capabilities, but maybe I'm mistaken, maybe it was Linux he was considering.

The developer is great, and the program has been flawless.

#42 - Nothing gets past my firewall without my permission. This program runs fine without Internet access but it initally needs Internet for the GAOTD to activate. After that you can pull the plug and it should run fine.

Generally a nice program but I tried importing a simple database in .csv format (which AllMyNotes allows) as well as .txt format but in both cases the first letter of every line was missing. When I look at the actual .csv and .txt before importing the first letters of each line are definitely there.

The program *will* run without Internet... once it is installed. It does, however, need the Internet to download and install.

Meanwhile, many thanks to all of you who have suggested alternative to AllMyNotes Deluxe. It is obvious that, with so many different organisers available, with so many competing features, *trying* is very necessary before *buying*. Accordingly, my last suggestion for tonight to Vladonai is that they make a trial version of their Deluxe available ... or, if they do have one, that they mention that clearly on their website.

This was one of the GOTD offerings I tried and bought. I am also one of the satisfied users that has found many applications for this software. I highly recommend it if you need to organize virtually anything. It has been a godsend for myself, but also in organizing my mother's personal records, etc.

I'm looking forward to v. 3.

I'm new to this kind of program and am not sure what exactly it does (after reading the website and comments). Can I import whole web pages? I tried and it converted to .rtf, changed the format and omitted all the photographs/.jpg. Do I need to convert the .jpg into something else in order to save them? Not sure of the limits here.

Another question about the data: there is unlimited data capacity on the software, and it is saved either with the program on C or on the usb drive. So that means the limit is actually that of my storage capacity, right? Which is pretty small on the usb.

Further to my earlier coment about absolute paths in the portable apps ini file now i've completed the quickstart wizard there are two more absolute non-portable paths that should be relative paths as the dbb files is located in the portable apps folder!

RecentlyOpenedFile0=C:\AllMyNotesOrganizerDeluxePortable_277\AllMyNotes Organizer Portable\AllMyNotes Documents.ddb

RecentFilePath=C:\AllMyNotesOrganizerDeluxePortable_277\AllMyNotes Organizer Portable\AllMyNotes Documents.ddb


They should apear as:

RecentlyOpenedFile0=.\AllMyNotes Documents.ddb

RecentFilePath=.\AllMyNotes Documents.ddb

RecentFilePath= seems redundant and not relevent to a portable installation in my humble opinion.

I just get so tired of people being unhappy because the writers of a program don't speak perfect English. You're getting a free program from some talented people, for Pete's sake!

If you wrote a program for a Ukrainian audience, how good would your Ukrainian be?

noticed an odd bug, in the ini there is a line that is an absolute path to a non-existant folder heirachy:

SoundPath=C:\AllMyNotesOrganizerDeluxePortable_277\Sounds\Default\

it apears to look one folder above the current folder, get the absolute path then appends \Sounds\Default\ on the end.
No idea if it's used within the program, but it's certainly not a portable relative path!

Other than that I've use 2.70 on a usb stick for several months and not experienced any data loss or functional oddities so will be keeping this too.

Have got it running on my old XP machine and it seems to be just what I needed but how do I get a desktop icon to start it?

Program will not run without internet connection rights. Why does it need it? Check for updates box is not checked, so why the connection? Can the connection request be removed?

will this program sync across
numerous computers?

I have been using Evernote
and really love it because it
will automatically sync the info
between my three computers...

.thanks Karen

One small bug, a tad weird but innocuous. The list of fonts that you see when you try to pick one for your text. Some font family names appear as "... Bold" or "... Italic" althgough there is the whole set there. For example, you have an installed fonts "Morda", "Morda Bold", "Morda Italic", and "Morda Bold Italic". In other programs you see all of them or just the family name which is "Morda". But in AllMyNotes, you see sometimes "Morda", sometimes only "Morda Italic", sometimes only "Morda Bold". You still can make the actual text bold and/or italic or "none of the above", so this bug is harmless.

#15:
The only keys found in the registry are the .ddb file association. Doesn't mean it's not portable. The keys are very easy to delete if they bother you.

#21 (Vladonai):
As a consequence of the above, there should be an option to associate files with the application (with a warning about writing to the registry) at install time. Fix needed here.
