    • OneNote is one of the most ubiquitous note-taking apps out there, and with its notoriety comes widespread mainstream support and understanding. Like Evernote, it supports note-taking and to-do lists, and its interface can be considered much simpler and less cluttered than Evernote's as well. It isn't as crossplatform as Evernote, though it has support for plugins and supplementary apps and features. View 416 alternatives to Microsoft OneNote

      jcsdevelopment I've used One-Note about a year now and it is, IMO, the best note-taker. For the price, you can't beat it. Much easier interface and putting things in folders works better than in Evernote.

      OneNote is the most powerful note-taking app available. It in fact much more powerful and flexible than Evernote but is totally free.

    • Though Standard Notes only supports text entry out of the box, it has its own advantages compared to Evernote. Its features can also be expanded with extensions. It's end-to-end encrypted, open source (but freemium), and has no device limit. It can synchronize your notes to as many supported devices as you want. Our users find that it does not feature multilingual support, however. View 415 alternatives to Standard Notes

      edwardcook A clean and simple, yet versatile and secure end-to-end encrypted notes app. There are multiple available extensions that allow for including images, building spreadsheets, and using markdown, among many other things.

      Standard Notes is a multiplatform application (Windows, Android, Linux), secure with perfect synchronization on several devices. Only problem: it is not multilingual.

      Denmon Best option for plain-text synced notes I've found. Moved to this from Simplenote due to sync problems there. UI is not the prettiest but I like the visibility into what's happening with sync and the option to choose different editors for notes. Sync protocol is well documented and you can even run your own Standard File server if you really want. Developer is active and responsive, and has the right approach (IMHO).

    • Google Keep brings the power of Google Docs to note-taking, and features what is basically a post-it note interface with the rich content support found in its more formal document processing cousin. Being web based allows for perfect synchronization across devices, though it is not end-to-end encrypted. View 284 alternatives to Google Keep

      Very good note searching. Good integration between desktop and mobile. Use google docs for rich formatting and large texts.

      Google Keep is more like a sticky note where as Evernote is a digital filing system where everything is better organized.

      There is almost no similarity at all. It's very feature poor, clunky to use and has poor cosmetics.

    • Nimbus Note features an interface that is incredibly similar to Evernote's, but it has a few limitations in comparison. For one, it's not available for Linux or as a Firefox browser plugin. It also has a 100 MB limit for synced data and is not updated as frequently due to the development team's smaller size. Like Evernote, it does not encrypt data, so for those looking for a more private alternative, this likely isn't for you. View 163 alternatives to Nimbus Note

      bibjasjs 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!

      JohnFastman 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.

      Nimbus has the potential to seriously challenge Evernote. I found it intuitive, easy to use with a beautiful and neat interface. Better than OneNote esp since it offers tagging.

      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.
