A worthy alternative to OneNote (slow start up, freezes and glitches, too bloated), Evernote (can fall down out of wifi area), Bear (Markdown lacks rendered view).

Pros:

Well thought out, good UI, solid in operation. Focus on notes essentials to maintain speed and reliability. Developer communicates.

Cons:

Subscription needed for full feature set BUT it is fully cross platform

Renewed my yearly subscription with no doubt. In fact, my love for SN is even more now with FileSafe!

Pros:

The security; the ability to view version history; multi-platforms (so important for a user like me who use iOS, Android, Windows!)

Cons:

Nothing to complain, it's almost perfect!

I use this throughout the day to save thoughts and write notes on both my phone and laptop. It's become an essential part of my daily routine. It's been useful in both school and work. I haven't had a problem with it in the 2+ years I've been using it.

Pros:

Easy to use, organized, cross platform, and secure.

Cons:

None that I can think of.

SN is one of the best notetaking apps. It's good at most things, but excels at privacy. Very powerful writing experience, but no PDF handling, no web clipper and complicated and basic file uploading. Everything needs to be hosted in a separate service like Dropbox

Pros:

- Sleek interface - Privacy focused - Philosophically right - Wonderful community

Cons:

- No spellcheck - Not recommended to non-techy users - Steep monthly subscription price - Mobile version lacks functionality
