Good suggestions and thanks for confirming that it is not just me having challenges with multiple accounts open.  The problem is that I am running out of browsers while working form home!  My work VPN runs through IE, I use a Google Voice number in Edge and I run the web-based version of Office in Chrome.  What I need to think about is where I typically put stuff in this type of app.  Normally it has been at my desktop, but with a good app, I can see using it with my phone or tablet as well.

Brief update.  I am not sure what caused the lightbulb to go off, but after having looked at these programs over the years and not really seen their potential for me, I suddenly realized how useful a program like this could actually be.  I guess that between Simplenote, Diigo and a couple of other errant programs, I thought I could easily keep track of small bits of information that I needed.  But, what was once small has now turned larger, and my brain is only capable of holding on to so much data, despite more and more of it flowing through my daily life.  So, I think that my choices are now narrowed down to Zoho and Notejoy.  I have an account for the former, which is free and tied into a host of other applications, but its organization is just a bit shy of what I would like (Notebooks which need to be opened and pages in the notebook (which can be stacked)).  I prefer the more traditional layout of Notejoy, with a column for notebooks and pages, but I need to try both for a bit.  has anybody used any Zoho products?  They have been around for quite some time, but I do not actually know anybody who uses their apps.

I haven’t used Notejoy on my iOS devices, yet.
On their Facebook page, the developer is asking for suggestions:

“We are currently working on a mobile clipper that will enable you to easily share to Notejoy directly from iOS or Android apps. To make sure we cover your use cases, what apps do you want to be able to share to Notejoy from?”

They seem to be pretty active (though they still haen’t come up with a solution with regard to the link glitch on German keyboards - the [[ shortcut does not work on QWERTZ keyboard layouts).

On Windows and MacOS Notejoy is a joy, though.

Do take a look at UpNote, Ken—it sounds as if it would fit your use case rather well.
