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. ;)

    Taskade 2.0

    We use Taskade as a remote team to manage multiple team projects and workspaces. It syncs in real-time across all the devices and teams, and works really well for note taking, outlining, and getting work done. Highly recommend it... and it's free to use for individuals and teams.

    The project management tool that grows with you

    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.

    Standard Notes

    A simple and private notes app.

    Mo Bitar made this product
    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.

    I suggest looking into NoteLedge - I've used this app on both my new iPhone and my old Android and all I can say is that it's almost an optimal solution for note-taking, managing your PDFs/files, gathering bookmarks and references all in one place. I've used it mostly for work notes, brainstorming, adding little notes to my calendar for better time-management and sketching. My favorite part was using NoteLedge on my iPad for adding sketches to my notes - the level of personalization is quite high. Overall, I like how it's designed, the tools available are varied and useful, and it's a lot of fun to use.

    I have the free version and I love it. My kids 4 and 6 use it too, and they show me things all the time. Kids are so smart these days!

    I prefer to give my daughter the iPad without video games or youtube installed. Luckily she loves NoteLedge and we can get through the 2 hour trip home from work every day without a peep!

    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

    An app that's the composition box of everything

    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!

    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)

I hope it will be useful for you. Thanks

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