What are good Mac apps for lecture note-taking?

What are some of the interesting apps for taking lecture notes? It should support folders or notebooks. Actually looking for OneNote alternatives but I'm open to any interesting one too.

    Take better notes, your way

    I used NoteLedge for most of my senior year at college - I found it easy to use, both on my iPad and my MacBook Air. Most often I'd type up the notes, and if I had more time, I'd use the handwriting option. The app is fairly straight-forward, easy to nagivate and one of the best features was the voice notes function and invididual folders for notes and other types of files. I found it easiest to use on my iPad because I could also sketch while taking notes and create short presentations that I'd later use for self-study. I think overall, NoteLedge is a good option for students who need to take lots of notes and keep them organized

    I use NoteLedge for taking notes during lectures, I'm able to do sketches of what's on the board and this makes studying easier. Recommend it to all students who are in a need of a good notes app to use at school.

    Super simple and clean, supports Markdown syntax. It's free if you just want to use on Mac or iPhone but if you want to use iCloud sync it's 14.99 a year.

    Because OneNote doesn't run smooth enough on macOS. Outline supports subdirectory too.
