What's the best cross-platform app for writing?

There are many great writing apps for Mac but I'm a PC guy (and I moved back to Android from iOS last year). So, I'm looking for an app that lets me write / sync on Android and PC. I wouldn't mind a web app either. The more platforms it supports, the better it is for everyone not on Mac. I've tried Google Keep, OneNote, Evernote, Grammarly and the Hemingway web app so far. And no, iOS and Mac support is not the "cross-platform" I'm looking for. ;)

    Notion 2.0

    The all-in-one workspace - notes, tasks, wikis, & databases

    Hands down the best pick, I have tried them all and can't speak highly enough about Notion!

    Standard Notes

    A simple and private notes app.

    Standard Notes is available on Web, Mac, PC, Linux, iOS, and Android ;) It's simple and straight to the point, so everything works fast and as you'd expect. As a bonus, your content is encrypted before being synced, and you can add Dropbox/Google Drive as a backup sync location.

    Zenkit might be the one for you. It#s a web app but has Desktop Apps (Linux, macOS & Windows) as well as Mobile Apps (iPhone & Android) and it syncs across all devices. You can take notes and work on tasks however you want. Use different data views, switch between views and use multiple custom views. You can also add your family or team member as well as uploading files. The Calendar view and reminder can keep you on track.

    hey, I'm working on an app called Vivie, would you give it a try? It's completely web-based so far. I use it a lot on mobile, mainly as a personal wiki (hence the name – Vivie) and to send short notes to friends and family. Thanks a lot! Alice

    I fell in love with Typora. Markdown support, distraction-free, VS Code on steroids for writers! Still in Beta- did not see any issues (except maybe UK English support)

    Picking this product up and using it transformed my day and my writing process. I ended up leaving both Evernote and Bear (which I had been using for many years.) Worth a look!

    It's cross-platform, but better for personal purpose. Collaboration is not its strength, you might want to try Notion if you need it.
