This is going to be a strange endorsement for Standard Notes, which I haven’t seen talked about much here.

This is a fairly robust Evernote replacement, with apps for iOS, MacOS, Windows, Linux, Android, and the web. It’s number one feature is encryption and security. With a subscription you can keep all of your apps in sync, as well as use a number of extensions to add functionality to the plain text editor (such as markdown in various styles).

The reason this is a strange endorsement is that I bought the five year subscription (which makes the price $3 per month). And it worked like I expected. But I realized I didn’t need it (the Drafts for Mac beta helped convince me of that), so I took advantage of their 30-day refund policy. Within an hour I had my refund courteously processed. In short, I was impressed with the customer service. And the app is pretty good.

Anyway, if you’re looking for a plain text note taker that has almost universal access, I suggest taking a look at Standard Notes:

What do you think would be the advantage of this over something like Joplin which seems more powerful and popular?

I don’t have any experience with Joplin.

I had never heard of Joplin until I read your post. Looking at the Joplin site, and reading a few reviews, I am interested, and plan to download it. The only drawback I see is the markdown - for me rich text is simpler and preferable. However, I could probably learn to live with markdown if everything else on Joplin is good.

I am fed up with Evernote because it no long clips a complete page to my Android phone, just the basic information. EN wasn’t able to correct the problem. Now I use Pocket for all my web clipping, and actually find it better. So for writing and notes I will try out Joplin.

Thanks for this. While I’m happy with Evernote for collecting existing material, I am interested in something more simple and private for my own notes. Simplenote is simple but not secure enough.

Do I understand correctly that Standards Notes is plain text only?
