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

    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.

    Google Keep

    Save your thoughts, wherever you are

    Free, chrome extension, mobile app, simple, unlimited.
    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.

    A beautiful, flexible writing app for notes and prose

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Yes, I have availed their services for more than 2 years continuously.
  14. 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.

    As a professional journalist and writer, I currently use the Document Maker app for both personal use and business. Business-wise, I love the sharing and folder /sub-folders features. Hereโ€™s the deal Writing and sharing documents is what I do for a living. Therefore, when I am on the go and I happen to create a client document, I want to know I have the means to share it โ€“ either via email attachments, via Dropbox, via Google Drive, via the Microsoft Sky Drive, or via FTP. Surprisingly, the app enables me to do all this, and more. Speaking of folders and sub-folders, I am really a neat-freak, and I guess I carry this over from being in the Army. I love compartmentalizing things, the Document Maker app folders and sub-folders feature allows me to neatly file things away in an easy to retrieve filing system. Some of Document Maker app features include those you are accustomed to with Microsoft Document Suite, namely folders and sub-folders creation, deleting, and renaming filesโ€ฆ you can even drag and drop files to move them across folders. Personally, I find using this Document Maker app on my table to be of tremendous help what away from the office, especially when travelling (waiting to board a flight at the airport), waiting at the doctor's office. It helps me bridge the gap between on the road and away from the office. I just love this Document Maker app.

    GoodWriter 4 takes things to the next level. Being able to take notes on your PDF files is awesome! And not having to open up several different pages to edit and take notes is great. Everything you need is all here in one place!
