What are some really good and powerful note taking apps that you can use across devices?

I'm looking at IA Writer and Bear (they don't have android though). What are your favourite note taking apps?

    Taskade is an outlining tool designed for getting things done. You can outline tasks, notes, and more, in an infinite tree hierarchical structure. The app is cross-platform, real-time, and super lightweight for personal use and teams.

    Zenkit is quite a bit more than simple note taking, as is Notion. It's available across all major platforms, including Linux.

    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    It's primarily a team knowledge sharing app but is great for note-taking as well. It has a desktop, mobile, ad web app and works across all devices/platforms.

    I know I'm old school, but I love Keep. It's been super easy to onboard other people in my life such as my parents, who may not be super tech-savvy, so we have one place to share to-do lists.

    Without a doubt, hands down the best! Syncs across all devices, and has a Chrome app. I always use the "send to Keep" feature on my phone, then will tidy it up later. I color code my notes - yellow for "life" notes, orange for "work" and white for miscellaneous notes. you can add photos and tons of other features although the base app does the job.

    Take better notes, your way

    I personally enjoy using NoteLedge - I have to take a lot of notes at work and a good note-taking app is an essential tool for me. With NoteLedge, I'm able to do both typed and written notes, as well as voice notes if I'm not able to type. All my files are synced across the three devices that I use for work - my phone, tablet and desktop computer. I'm able to access everything wherever I am and this makes working on the go easier, so I'm not attached to a particular device. I also like how all my notes/documents/media stay organized in individual folders, this makes browsing very easy. NoteLedge is a useful app for business professionals, students, proficient note-takers, etc.

    I find NoteLedge great for taking notes. I usually do them on my phone when I'm commuting, and on my notebook when I'm at work or at home. I like how this app is actually quite fun to use and I can organize my notes by folders and this makes looking for a particular note/date quite easy. One of my favorite notes apps so far.

    I just love how simple yet robust Bear is. Good for writing specs, articles or just short notes. I especially love the themes. The only thing I wish they worked on is the ability to hide those tags like H1, H2 when you are writing.

    As a developer, I've recently switched to this from Ulysses and I love it. It has a Vim plugin (plus others) and a great Markdown editor perfect for writing my own personal documentation. Not being tied to my iCloud account is a great bonus as well. So far the only negative is that it's built with Electron, but I haven't had any issues with that yet.

    NoteRiot stores your data on your personal storage. It uses an account on the blockstack network that only you owns, not Facebook, not Google or any other third party.

    Standard Notes

    A simple and private notes app.

    KoosHello, I'm a designer! Β· Written
    Iβ€˜m using Standard Notes. It’s Text only, which is both a blessing and a curse: it avoids me spending time making notes look pretty, but sometimes I want to paste images too. The really good things of Standard Notes: - cross platform - open source: easy to do whatever you want with your data. - encrypted. I just feel more at ease knowing no one can go through my notes. Not even to serve me ads with the purpose to make me buy stuff I wouldn’t have missed otherwise. They have a paid option that includes markdown editors and some other features.
