I am planning to travel to a remote area where I cannot have Internet access. But, I will configure a router for LAN; would use it to broadcast media and other stuff.

I am now looking for an app that I can write on my mac, and sync it to my android phone over the LAN network.

Devonthink would be the ideal system for this because the database can be stored on a shared local drive. Unfortunately, I have an android phone.

Does anyone know an app that can sync over LAN for android?

I just realized that I can store my notes in rtf and md formats on a shared folder (FTP) and access the folder with explorer apps.

You may want to try out B-Folders https://www.jointlogic.com/

It’s a secure notes and passwords manager and it only syncs via LAN. It’s been discussed here in the past.

B-Folders is free for Android but you pay for the desktop version (single license for Windows, Mac and Linux).

If you have access to an iPhone or iPod Touch (the latter can be purchased refurbed from Apple for as little as $120, with full, as-new warranty) you can use Apple Notes or any number of other apps, and sync via WiFi between the two devices.

I f I’m not mistaken, Dropbox allows you to sync over local LAN network. So any app that can use Dropbox for data storage would work in your situation.
