For several years now, I’ve been using a personal information manager called MyNotesKeeper. I first wrote about MyNotesKeeper in 2008, if that gives you any indication. MyNotesKeeper is a shareware application, but purchasing the full version is relatively cheap and the regular updates on the application are still active. In my experience, the author of the software has been receptive to suggestions and in some cases actually applied some of these suggestions that I’ve put forth, and corrected bugs when they been reported.
Like most applications, MyNotesKeeper has the ability to check and see if the latest version of the software is installed. While it has the ability to go out and check to see if you’re running the latest version, it doesn’t give you the option to download/install the latest version of the software.
