    • Unlike Laverna, Evernote isn't free or open source, it doesn't work natively on Linux and doesn't support decent encryption. It also places your (often very) private data in a searchable format into the hands of a corporation who've been hacked before and who must give data to authorities when asked. If none of these bother you, then Evernote is a replacement for Laverna. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree

    • Simplenote is an intentionally minimalistic note-taking app hosted in the cloud free of charge. It is not encrypted by default, has no rich text options (no bold, italic, bulletpoints, checkboxes) and isn't able to accept pasted images either. It does have tagging and a decent search function and mobile support. Feature/privacy wise it's less than Laverna, but it's more polished at what it does. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Simpler than Laverna, but with free hosting. Simplenote essentially supports text-only notes, which you can label. Laverna is encrypted, supports including pictures, rich text, etc. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree

    • TagSpaces reads/saves files locally. You can sync those however you wish. It supports note taking (plain text and html), tagging (labels), text search, and works with many file formats. The basic version (which is v. good) is open source & free; advanced features cost a little. Not perfect, but excellent. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree

    • Notational Velocity is Mac-only and local (not cloud based). Also doesn't offer encryption. Laverna is cross-platform, offers encryption and cloud sync. Although the sync isn't very flexible/well done/problem free. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
