I use this one for all my note taking needs. Just because it has an awesome library function, markdown support and the iCloud sync is amazing.. It syncs across my devices without any problem. I just love it 😋

Super nice library function with folders and subfolders, custom icons, etc., which all sync perfectly across Mac and iPhone apps.

Markdown support is just amazing. I use it for quick notes, short stories, and podcast scripts. Just beautifully designed and incredibly flexible for exports. A little on the pricey side, especially the iphone app, but love using it.

Last year, we covered Jono Brandel and Lullatone's addictive site Patatap, which turns keyboard strokes into sounds and animations. Now they're are back at it with Typatone, an app that turns text into a lovely little xylophone melody. Like Patatap, Typatone puts a note to every keystroke, and typing out a message composes a song.

*disclosure: i used to work for this team but i was a user before and after working there* Day One is far above the competition. Kinda sad to see these other notes like Google Keep and OneNote above Day One here. Don't get me wrong, I use Google Keep for other thoughts, notes, etc., but for journaling, Day One is the best, bar none.

I used Day One for a lot of time, but realized I was journaling in 4-5 different places, Evernote, text reminders, photo screenshots etc etc... While Day One is super cool and journaling is a really nice habit, I now follow a different approach to journaling.

Keeping a journal is a pain in the ass. It's a scientifically-proven wonderful thing to do-to preserve your memories, explore your feelings, record the things you do and notice and care about-but it's a lot of work to sit down every day and get your Dear Diary on.
The Verge
Mac and iOS journaling app Day One received an extensive overhaul today, the result of a two-year development period that saw its creators rebuild the software from the ground up, and re-release it as a new app on the App Store.

If you're looking for the best journaling app, or a great app for logging and recording various events and milestones of your life, then by far and away the best journaling app is Day One. Day One has outstanding apps for the Mac, iPhone, and iPad that all sync.
