I see. Unfortunately, I find more and more that I want to access and edit my files with my iPhone or iPad, which is why I made the comparison to OmniOutliner. At this point most of my writing files apps are iOS/macOS cross-platform (Apple Notes, Ulysses, Scrivener, Notebooks), and that’s the way most apps are going. In fact, with the announced Catalyst framework being put into place in the upcoming macOS Catalina, we’re going to see lots of iPad apps being ported to the Mac beginning next year. (In fact this summer, Gameloft, Twitter and Atlassian already ported proof-of-concept apps to macOS.)

This seems to be a short-to-medium-term method for porting to macOS (building new apps from the ground up with SwiftUI is the next-gen paradigm being promoted for new apps to be run on any Apple hardware), but it means that the much larger base of developers for iOS will be able to migrate apps with *relative* ease to macOS sooner than later, giving cross-platform apps even more of a boost.

I like the idea behind NoteTaker, and I liked it going back decades, but I don’t know if I want to put my info inside a silo that cannot be gotten to on my iOS devices in any way.
