    • Unlike Turtl, Evernote is 1) unencrypted/not very secure privacy-respecting 2) has lost user data in the past, both by software and security errors, 3) closed source (less trustworthy than Turtl), 3) doesn't support linux, 4) feels different on each platform, 5) feels bloated and slow after you put in a sufficient number of notes, 6) The company have and can again make privacy-violating changes to their privacy policy. Turtl is in beta, but aleady infinitely preferable. JohnFastmanMar 2017 Disagree   Agree

about Turtl Apr 2017

After privacy issues with Evernote and that scary line in Simplenote Privacy Terms,

Automattic, Inc may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your personally identifiable information

I decided to move to a more private and reliable software. I tried others, but they seem somewhat lacky or terribly ugly. Turtl is simple, organized and it has its charm. It's still being developed, so it has few bugs, nothing serious so far though.

The only thing I dislike is the markdown editor. I'd like something more like an actual text editor, like in Evernote. But the developer said he's already working on it, so I guess it's just a matter of time. (:
An import and export feature would be great, which the developer said he's also working on.

Summing up, it is constantly developed; it is promising; it's available to all major plataforms; and it's already good and safe.
