Most helpful

If you email the developer he will send you a code to allow full functionality for 30 days. In my case very helpful as I wanted to check out how it handled tasks, which by default are disabled without a purchased serial number. The developer responded within moments -- a very good sign. He was also cordial and helpful. And then gave a code -- all very positive!

For me it has all I need to manage my notes. It's really simple to use but also very powerful. The task management features and the auto update of changed attachments are my favorite features.

I’m looking at Sorting Thoughts now. I’m an educator trying to figure out if your program is useful to me or not (ie. what can you offer that document pages and folders cannot). I thought the use of Gantt charts might be interesting, possibly useful, but I can find no information within the program or on your site to see how I might use or even create such charts. Anything to offer? Kim

Whilst the premise of the idea is sound I have become a little more mercenary regarding the trialling of new software. I couldn't install this readily onto my macbook in 3 tries and therefore gave up. The developers website is easy enough to use though, and there certainly was a code provided to allow full 30 day access. Was very interested in the Gantt chart as an alternative to using Omni's well executed yet highly overpriced offering (it doesn't interface with OmniFocus so what is the point?).

The new task management features are really useful. I like the project Gantt chart and the new icons. That is exactly what I want to use.

No wikis? Can't click directly on a link but have to go to the links page to find the link and then click on it? Really? After quite a long time trying to find out if I was missing something, nope. If you create a link, you cannot open that link directly. You have to go to the links page, find the link you want and click on that! Too Windows-like as well. I am a Mac person. I want my Mac apps to act, look, and feel like a Mac app. If I wanted Windows I would've bought a Windows computer. No command-z No command-s [and, btw- you have to manually click the save icon before any links that you've created even show up!] No buy.

Over 900 downloads here and no relevant review. I think it's time for a review. I use Sorting Thoughts since version 1.0.0 and I find it's really useful. The name fits perfect and you can easily sort your thoughts with this tool. I use it to collect my daily notes and to writing travel diaries. I put bookmarks, articles, photos, documents and reading notes in it. In the end it helps me to manage myself. The thought concept with the thought tree, linking and tagging feature is ideal for this job. A thought in the concept of Sorting Thoughts is a textual entry in an encrypted database. Currently, it exist four different types of thoughts: simple, projects, tasks and events. Since version 1.1.0 it is possible to attach files to a thought. This is my favorite feature. So I can collect and manage my documents in Sorting Thoughts and add photos to my travel diaries. Here are my pros and cons of Sorting Thoughts. Light: - clean interface (very simple to use) - encrypted and cloudless (ideal for private stuff) - available for Mac and Windows (so I can use it at home and at work) - Android and webOS app are available (also for HP TouchPad) - developer is friendly and gives helpful support (thanks again for that :) Shadow: - task planning is too simple (it is not possible to filter tasks) - mobile apps supports only simple text thoughts (no tasks and projects) - no iOS app available Summary: I can highly recommend this tool. If you collect private data and you don't want put it in a cloud, this tool is yours.

The download is for OSX 10.5, not 10.4 as stated above, but if you visit the developers site, he has a download for 10.4 there for us.

It's very useful. I like the thought concept. The only thing I miss is to attach files to a thought.
