Available on all platforms. Specifically the desktop app has become a full fledged notetaking tool. See More
Even if it was paid this app would already be superior to Evernote, Keep and Onenote in many aspects (cross-platform native support, privacy features, Markdown oriented support). On top of it, it is also open source, entirely free and can be hosted in a variety of ways. It is trivial to open a free nextcloud account with a provider of choice (see here https://nextcloud.com/signup/) and have all the features above plus seamless synchronization. See More
Sweet combination of simplicity, synchronization and mark-down support. See More
Simplenote takes a minimalist approach to its interface. There are no toolbars full of formatting options or extra features like notebooks to group notes. The entire desktop interface consists solely of a sidebar with your tags and trash filters, the list of existing notes with search, a button to add a new note and a simple view for looking an existing note or writing a new one. See More
Unlike alternatives (such as Evernote) that are laden with features, Simplenote is fast to use and sync. Reviews from the Verge, Lifehacker, and a variety of other sources all describe using the Simplenote apps as very fast. While it may not be as feature-rich as other apps, the responsiveness of the app and simple interface keep it easy to use while never slowing down the user when they need to quickly take a note.

This is a typical workflow action in other apps: Do a search, multi-select notes among the matches, then apply or de-apply one or more tags to all these notes at once. There's no way to do this in Simplenote. The only bulk operations are Delete and Pin-to-top. See More
When a mobile device isn't in use, Google Keep can be accessed as a Chrome app or as a website. Basically, no matter the device being used or the OS on it, there is always a way to access the app. There is also no limitation to how many devices this can be done with, freeing up the user to always have access.

Very good and quite complete. With this app it’s easy to organize his notes, codes or whatever thanks to the treeview on the side and a bunch of cool stuff like codebox and node linking. The only downside for me is that the pdf export doesn’t export the links to create an interactive PDF ... so pretty good ! See More
This is the best database/list/notebook/PIM program so far. It is a database attached to a word processor. It's small and simple to use. It does what it says and does it well. There is a table of contents on the left while the right holds the actual info. It will handle .txt or .rtf format and save it's data in a folder location of your choice. You can even insert pictures. And it's cross-platform so you can save your stuff and switch between Windows and Linux. (It's still much, much simpler to use than those databases that come with most office suites. One of the things I've learned to absolutely dislike are databases - especially the ones that come with office suites. Whoever came up with those was a genius in mental torture. How in the name of St. Patrick are you supposed to work with that. Well, here is a really easy to use database that doesn't require you to do any mental Olympics...) Also, it works a lot better than the Kjots program. *THE BEST DATABASE PROGRAM OUT THERE. I USE THIS ONE A LOT ON BOTH WINDOWS AND LINUX*** See More

Simple, with a lot of functionality and password protected. I highly recommend it. See More
Zim notes don't automatically synchronize with other devices or offer built-in cloud sync support. Of course the user can add the files to Dropbox, or something similar, to then open them on another device with the app installed. But this is more of a work-around than a built-in solution. See More
Notes can contain links to other notes, allowing you to reference important information when needed. This way the user can connect and reference many different pages in the app, keeping things clean and structured, unlike Evernote, which makes this a good Evernote alternative. See More
Extensible: Can be automated with it's programming language See More
Org mode started out as a simple outlining/note taking app. Then each outline heading can optionally be a TODO list item. And if you desire, you can add SCHEDULE and DEADLINE dates. (Schedule being the date you'd like to start the item.) You can customize the TODO states to add things like DELEGATED, WAITING, BLOCKED, etc. See More
LOL! Are these guys kidding? The price they charge is laughable for the quality of this build. See More
I use it as my main note taking app for lectures at university. See More
You'll spend a lot of time learning all the commands and modes supported in Vim. You'll then spend more time tuning settings to your needs. Although once it's tuned to your needs, you can take your .vimrc to any machine you need and have the same experience across all your computers. See More
Use it with SyncThing and you have the most secure and best note experience on Linux. See More
