MyInfo is a personal information manager developed by Milenix Software. MyInfo collects, organizes, edit, stores, and retrieves personal-reference information like text documents, web snippets, e-mails, notes, and files from other applications.

MyInfo 7 adds speed improvements, perspectives, updated user interface, multiple attachments per note, multiple sections per notebook and more.[2]

MyInfo 8 introduces dark mode, Markdown-style shortcuts, nested tags, code snippets support, note structure pane, and a new Go To Anything command.[3]

MyInfo uses both hierarchical, and folder-like structures along with tags, categories and other meta-information for organizing its content. It is one of the several PIM applications for Windows to do so.[4]

MyInfo imports data from different third-party applications, most notably AskSam.[5]

The software is used as a free-form personal information manager, personal wiki,[6] outliner,[7] personal knowledge base,[8] game master tool, GTD filing system and others.


Nominated for Best Business Application by Software Industry Conference for their Shareware Industry Awards in 2003.[9]
