If in search of a Word-like text editor with hierarchical management features, password protection, and search capabilities for all your notes and reminders, My Notes Keeper is an option worth exploring. By combining a high-end text editor and a note database, this useful utility will let you keep track of all your reminders and whatever text-based messages and keep them perfectly organized.

You can create and nest as many “tree branches” as required to organize your notes and messages in a hierarchical way, allowing you to move your notes easily from one branch to another when necessary. You can write your notes using any of the fonts you have installed on your system, change the font size and color, and apply to them any of the format-related styles available for each font, such as bold, italics, etc. You can also add symbols (just as you would do in MS Word, for instance) and even hyperlinks.

My Notes Keeper can be password-protected and its data encrypted to guarantee the safety of your most sensitive information. This will allow you to use this tool not only to keep your notes organized but also to store confidential data in a secure way, including usernames and passwords for other tools, credit card numbers, phone and address books, etc. You can export all your notebooks in formats that most text editors support, such as TXT, RTF, DOC, HTML, etc.

Though not designed as the average date-based reminding tool, I really missed a calendar view where I could check when I took my notes. The app’s powerful search capabilities let you locate any note by scanning their content, title, and even attachments, as well as by date, which is great if you have a rough idea of when you wrote it. A monthly calendar view, for instance, would surely make the task easier for short-term memory users like me.

My Notes Keeper is a very good to excellent note-taker with high-end organizational features. Its encryption and password protection capabilities widen its scope to cover all kinds of sensitive information. A file repair feature to recover your database if an OS error occurs adds even more value to this feature-rich commercial tool.
