It is far from there yet, but I like the fact that the developers of Logseq have as one of their goals the idea that their app could be usable by children.

In terms of a native app Tinderbox has seen a lot of development and is still one of the best notes apps in existence. Step learning curve but phenomenally powerful.

Also the humble plain vanilla tiddlywiki can do just about anything. Everything is a tiddler. It is extremely powerful. I’m finding it one of the most flexible apps about. And it’s free!

Thanks @Luhmann for the reminder of Logseq. I have been trying it out recently and can see where Logseq has the best mix of features from Roam and Obsidian. There is still much more development to be done before I can use Logseq as a depository for my thoughts and findings in my research, but the base features together with Logseq’s inbuilt feature for using highlights of PDFs is what have been searching for some time. This is wonderful for academic research :)

I find that the major issue I have with the Logseq is using it for a depository with Dropbox which is accessed from the home and work computers. I am sure this will be rectified with time.
