Standard Note, a truly encrypted, multiclient (even web) text editing and notes managing app, has a deal here: $14.90 per year, billed once every five years.

https://dashboard.standardnotes.org/

I don’t use it, but could, and it’s maybe the only one I’ve seen I would trust on the web.

$75 (effective purchase price for 5 years) still seems high for an under-the-radar open source app that’s basically encrypted Markdown scratch notes (no attachments despite hosting the data on your own cloud) with a separate checklist mode (a la Google Keep).

That Standard Notes make you pay up-front for a 5 year ‘subscription’ gives me some trepidation - a lower yearly subscription not only would make the app more popular, it would give the developer more reason to continually update the app (to maintain the userbase). This is more of a one-time cash grab that lets the dev slack off (or f*** off) in a year if he wanted, destined to have a small user base and limited app growth. And if sales remain small or stagnate then there’s less urgency in fixing broken browser extensions, etc

Even with the best of intentions that pricing decision seems more pilot project proof of concept than a viable business model.

Sounds like a terrible promotion, unless you’re already a big-time user of Standard Note. I’d gladly blow $15 on an annual subscription for software that seems promising, but a five-year deal sounds like the developer needs cash, and needs it now. Once he gets it, and the months and years go by without further income from his new subscriber base, will he have the motivation to update and enhance the software?

I’ll correct what I said about there being no attachments - it seems I was wrong about that, as they say “Encrypted attachments for your notes stored directly in your Dropbox or Google Drive.”

I see that D’Alessio’s Keep Productive YouTube channel recently did 2 videos on the app. I’ll take a look now.

Personally, I am pretty happy with Apple Notes for cross-platform notes (plus pics, plus attachments) that are secure enough for me. And then I have writing apps. And then I have outliners. And never the twain shall meet, apparently.

Standard Notes also has a subreddit where the developer is active, and from a brief look the (fairly geeky) users seem on-board with the app, although most seem to be asking for additional features.
