For example, the development of the collapsible section to include Cut Copy Delete is a (very fast!) response to one of my requests, because I wanted to be able to move collapsible sections around more easily.

It’s worth mentioning, peeps, that UpNote is available for ALL platforms – to quote from the Medium blog:

“UpNote is a feature-rich note-taking app which is beautiful and easy to use on all platforms. Install UpNote on Mac, iPhone, iPad, Windows, Android and Linux.”

While I was still experimenting with Android, UpNote became the obvious answer to the lack of Apple Notes.

I purchased the Premium unlock recently added a few ozen files to UpNote 15 months ago but never could convince myself to migrate my files to it. I recently copied a few dozen files I was working with to marinate in the app and see how I could work with it, but unfortunately it still seems a little clunky compared to my folders/notes in Apple Notes and Ulysses.

I don’t like the last of shading difference between the notes list and notes themselves, the font choice is universal and not per-note, and the font options themselves are oddball. (Apple SD Gothic Neo?)

And perhaps most worrying, a jpeg attachment I’d added a year ago disappeared, with only a ‘broken img’ icon in its place.

I’ve only just started using UpNote, after buying a “lifetime” license. So far, I haven’t lost anything, and my files sync as promised. It’s still early days, but I enjoy using the software and can envision it replacing other apps in my workflow. Equally important, the developer (Thomas) is quick to reply to emails and seems like the type of guy who’ll address issues promptly.

Of course there’s always room for improvement. One example: I’d like more control over the export process, and I’d really like to see an export option for Word (currently, the options are PDF, HTML, Markdown, and text). I can (and have) exported to PDF and then converted to Word, but saving that additional step would be nice.

To be clear, I purchased the premium lifetime unlock last May, and the jpeg attachment was added at that time, and gave a text description for the img so that I’d be able to search for it, so I distinctly remember what was lost.

Thankfully it wasn’t important enough for me to retain a copy in Apple Notes, but it does mean I’m not dismayed by the loss pe se, but it means I am not comfortable using the app with attachments now.

Yesterday I added a few more files that had attachments, and I made notes about their contents, and will check on them in the future.

Overall it seems like a nice alternative to Apple Notes with a few additional features, but it’s also missing some features in comparison (document styling, working with hand-drawn notes in iOS), and it doesn’t look as good. If my attachment loss was an outlier I could see it as being a good option for people outside the Apple ecosystem.

What UpNote does have, which I wish other apps also had, is an outstandingly well-designed right-hand sidebar, where you can see all key document information (including ToC, backlinks, wordcount/character count, references and so on). This makes full use of the sidebar in a way that other apps with similar features (e.g. Ulysses) still don’t (having said that, I notice Ulysses does now have a kind of all-in-one sidebar which does more or less the same thing, albeit without backlinks etc.). I’d love to see Alfons introduced something like this in Notebooks.
