    • OneNote is the most powerful note-taking app available. It in fact much more powerful and flexible than Evernote but is totally free. Guest • Jan 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • The clipper has to simple experience. The search is impossible. The interface has to be more usable danantferrariFeb 2017 • 3 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Easy to use, strong support backed by Microsoft, also got plenty of plugins and apps. Guest • Jan 2017 • 1 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Now that it is completely free on all platforms (there is even a free Win10 UWP desktop app), not freemium as stated in this site, its functionality is almost the same. I miss not being able to store PDFs, but that's about it. Guest • Jun 2017 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is not real cross-platform (Linux is not compatible). Guest • Aug 2017 • 2 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    Free Windows Web Android iPhone Chrome OS ... Android Tablet iPad Chrome Android Wear

    • Google Keep is more like a sticky note where as Evernote is a digital filing system where everything is better organized. Guest • Jul 2016 • 32 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Google Keep doesn't support text formating, only simple plain text. Evernote is more for MSWord-like notes. Guest • May 2016 • 17 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's more for personal than professional use, but easy and fast to use. DrianmollerJan 2017 • 7 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It has barely any of the features. Could work if you only need to store simple text and photos but much more than that and it just gets hard to organise. Guest • Mar 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Very good note searching. Good integration between desktop and mobile. Use google docs for rich formatting and large texts. Guest • Sep 2016 • 6 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Purpose of Google Keep is different. It's better for sticky notes and todo lists while Evernote is made for organizing your images/articles/notes etc. angel_kokyAug 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Much simpler but still very powerful note keeping app. Keep is very easy to use and includes many powerful features. Guest • Aug 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Keep is good for sticky notes , short lists and quick reminders . Guest • Oct 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • The main reason I don't use Google Keep is that it doesn't have a Firefox plugin. Guest • Jul 2016 • 2 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
  • Simplenote icon


    Made by the company behind WordPress , Simplenote is an easy way to keep notes, lists, ideas, and more. Your notes stay updated across all your devices.

    Free Open Source Mac OS X Windows Linux Web Android ... iPhone Android Tablet iPad Kindle Fire

    • Very quick sync, responsive UI, works good across Windows, Linux and Android, although missing support for graphical notes and more text formatting options Guest • Nov 2016 • 8 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Simplenote is a cross-platform app that allows you to take simple (as the name implies) text-based notes and sync them across your devices. There is markdown support, but little else. It's Evernote with almost everything but the note taking feature taken out. If that appeals to you, it's great. Also, thumbs up for open source and Linux support! JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 6 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • No import/export, requires use of "markups" instead of keystrokes for style changes Guest • Jul 2016 • 5 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Not an archiver. Simplenote is for just that: simple markdown notes. Guest • Jun 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • True to its name, it is simple. Windows, Linux & Android all are supported. No media support. Text only. User2778798Jun 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Simplenote is just about making simple text notes Guest • Oct 2016 • 5 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree
  • Turtl icon

    Free Open Source Mac OS X Windows Linux Android Self-Hosted ... Chrome Firefox

    • Turtl stores your info encrypted, unlike Evernote. Much more private. Guest • Oct 2016 • 9 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Turtl is presently more of a bookmark sync utility than Evernote replacement. (For an open source Evernote replacement see TagSpaces). Unlike Evernote, Turtl is open source and use end-to-end encryption so that you can store simple notes and online bookmarks with full privacy, even from the Turtl developers. A browser plugin works together with the client to capture links. It's still being developed but already a good choice for cross-platform bookmark/note syncing. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • you can easily share boards of bookmarks & notes you can synch files & images it's cross platform & free Guest • Dec 2016 • 5 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Windows versions do not work properly. There is very little documentation and a poor forum. AnonATMar 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Turtl has a great potential to be a full alternative to evernote in the future. But that will take time, still waiting for import feature from other services like evernote,simplenote etc. kbabirFeb 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Client-side AES encryption (private), open-source and free syncing. Markdown support, attachments, bookmarks, browser plugins and apps for Win, OsX, Linux and Android. Best used for simple notes, but it's infinitely better than, say Simplenote and much more private than Evernote. Guest • Mar 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Open-source, free, great experience, and support for almost every platform. zaneNov 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is built from the ground-up to last 100 years - so a very different development model. Core software is plain text, and extended through plugins for Markdown and other rich text. scooterdogFeb 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • It's secure and private, support nice plugins like markdown format. mm140Feb 2018 Disagree   Agree
  • TagSpaces icon


    TagSpaces is a multiplatform application, which allows you to manage and organize your local files with the help of tags.

    Freemium $ $ $ Open Source Mac Windows Linux Android iPhone ... Self-Hosted Chrome Firefox

    • TagSpaces is built as an Evernote alternative for note taking and information management Danilo_VenomOct 2016 • 8 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Note taking is only a small part - tagging of local files is the main purpose. Guest • Jan 2017 • 7 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Superb, open-source, free, cross-platform organizer or files and notes. Still a work in progress, but already extremely useful. No automatic giving up of private data to the cloud; instead you can sync whichever folder you like to the cloud using your favourite service. Very highly recommended.

    Freemium Windows Web Android iPhone Chrome OS ... Windows Phone Chrome Chromium

    • Nimbus Note is practically an Evernote clone - and a great app too (I use it often). jasoncomelySep 2015 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • No Linux, no Mac client, no Firefox plugin. Your data rests unencrypted on US-based data centers in readable format. So all the privacy concerns of Evernote minus some of the convenience. JohnFastmanJan 2017 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Can import from Evernote including tags and images. xeam404Jul 2016 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • this is the closest program I have found that is a direct replacement for Evernote in both function and "feel". Support staff is excellent. There is even an Evernote Importer built in! bibjasjsAug 2016 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Nimbus Note looks similar, and with similar functionality to Evernote, and a bit faster too. conceptualJan 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Nimbus Note is for PC users, very simillar to Evernote. It is possible to import all information at once. If you are fine with 100 MB synced data it is free for any number of devices. It has very good online web interface, Windows app is nice, work offline but has some bugs in text editor (formatting) and has no updates for a long period. I cannot recommend Windows Metro App, it is unusable. For users, who prefer MS or Google and want to use images in their notes, is it possible way. Guest • Jul 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • Completely different application. Great for quick notes to stick to the desktop or an application, but not good for storing web pages, photos, etc. Guest • Jul 2016 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
