I discovered a few days ago this application
from what I see it is relatively young and has a lot of space for improvement and additions. However, it looks very clean and minimal, and the design team is very nice and helpful, reaching them on GitHub.
Then I think it’s worth being mentioned here :D

Looks nice – like a slightly more sophisticated (with folders/subfolders) version of Simplenote, which remains the benchmark for ultra-simple cross-platform syncing note apps. Although I have high hopes for nvUltra…

The Ulysses-like ability to view multiple notes in a single screen is very neat, I must say. Would that more note-taking apps had that feature.

I’ve given up on considering apps that don’t have a revenue source of some kind, but this app looks nice. Seems very much like UpNote (although I prefer this app’s UI) with the multi-select “gluing” of notes (and Markdown implementation) seen in Ulysses

Looking at their blog version 1.0 came out in 2017 so it’s not that young.

Thanks for the heads up! Looks nice and interesting; it’s been a while since I saw this kind of 3-pane outliner setup.

I downloaded and installed but was unable to run it without it crashing. After some investigation it turned out that my antivirus was shutting it off because it didn’t like it’s behaviour. After some more investigation I found that Notes connects to a port at raw.githubusercontent.com by its own initiative.

The site is a legitimate part of github and there may be a good reason for such a connection, e.g., checking for updates. Nevertheless, call me conservative, but I dislike initiative in tools; I would have expected some option during Notes’ installation for allowing such activity, but I recall none.

I may continue testing Notes, but will be keeping it nicely firewalled for the time being…
