Just curious as to everyones chiice of note taking app?
I’ve only use note takers haphazardly, but recently decided to take a proper look. I wanted something that I could use for both work (on Windows) and personal (my Linux laptop and android mobile) so it needs to be cross platform.
My thoughts on the few I’ve tried so far are:
Evernote is good, but it really gets on my nerves that I can’t have as many sub folders as I want.
Same thing for onenote. I actually prefer the onenote UI over Evernote, but I had syncing issues pretty bad with onenote.
Notion I tried briefly but is just too “busy” for me, seems like it’s trying to do everything and also felt like I’d spend way too much time getting distracted with style over substance.
I then looked at standard note and that looked pretty good. And that led me to Joplin
Weirdly I had always thought joplin was linux only, but when I actually looked it is cross platform!
And upon looking further I realised Joplin meets my needs in terms of folders and sub folders. Plus it’s cross platform. Plus it has markdown which I want to get into using. Plus it has a Web clipper. Plus it’s free and open source. So on the face of it it ticks all my boxes.
So yeah, joplin for me going forward!
