pros, cons and recent comments
It is completely free cross-platform app available on all major platforms like Mac, iOS, Android, Windows, Linux etc. It has has the feature you require from a not taking app plus it has very minimalistic design.

Allows you to create individual notebooks with notes and other sources inside like voice recordings, images and plain notes!
Dendron is an open-source, local-first, markdown-based, note-taking tool built on top of VSCode. It supports all the usual features you would expect like tagging, backlinks, a graph view, split panes, and so forth.
The problem with notetaking apps like Evernote or Apple Notes is that once you write a note, after a week you never look at it again. Without any organization, you're stuck praying that search will work for your future self.
