Have you guys looked into Notesnook as a recommended tool for Notebooks section on the website? I was looking for an Evernote replacement and I came up on this through the subreddit. It looks the most similar to Evernote out of all the options and has been made open source recently. Has anyone here used it and if you have, do you recommend it?
IMO it is not an replacement for Standard Notes, If you are paying for the SN plans, as they offer more functionality. However NotesNook does have promise, and is certainly a decent alternative to Evernote or Joplin (IMO Joplin is currently better). If you are looking for a Evertnote alternative, then it is indeed a toss up between Joplin and Notesnook. Notesnook does look better appearance wise, but Joplin has been there for a long time and are fully Open Source. Currently NotesNook only has clients Open Source and Not the Back End (Will be in the future). Also Joplin has a web clipper, while Notesnook does not. Else Both are functionally same. If you want the clipper go for Joplin, else Notesnook.
Privacy Guides isn’t merely a list of software that looks or sounds cool. We like to take our time and evaluate our recommendations before adding them, because we feel like we have a responsibility to our community to appropriately vet what we suggest. That goes both for recommendations as well as our guides.
If you would like to expedite the process, we’re more than happy to have members of our community assist us in evaluating projects, but we will not add something just because, without having first taken a very good look at it.
Notesnook, has not got an audit yet, and has quite a few bugs. Honestly I feel it still needs a few months perhaps. Also I am unsure if the metadata is encrypted too!! But it surely is on the right track.
I haven’t used Standard Notes, only Notesnook. As I was looking for a notes app Notesnook seemed to offer way more for free than Standard Notes. I think you get formatting on your notes for free whereas you have to pay on Standard notes if you want more than plain text. I think.
Also +1 on Notesnook. Polish of Google Keep, approaches the power of Obsidian, and all FOSS.
Notesnook user here. I love this app and the security/privacy features are amazing. You can create an encrypted vault for particularly sensitive notes. They support software AND hardware-based (Yubikey) 2FA. The development is very active and the team behind it is very dedicated. For $5/mo., I’d say it’s worth it. Notesnook is fully FOSS. Evernote should be scared.
