Alternatives to Evernote for the Web with any license

  • Google Keep

    Google Keep is a service provided by Google which integrates note-taking and web surfing. Quickly capture what’s on your mind and recall it easily wherever you are. Create a checklist, enter a voice note or take a photo and annotate it. Everything you add is available instantly on all your devices – desktop and mobile.

    • Google Keep is more like a sticky note where as Evernote is a digital filing system where everything is better organized. Guest • Jul 2016 • 37 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Google Keep doesn't support text formating, only simple plain text. Evernote is more for MSWord-like notes. Guest • May 2016 • 19 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 3 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
    • More useful and modern solution, as for me chadwoodMay 2018 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 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree

Your notes are synced across your devices when you create, add to or change them. Registration is required but the app and service are free.

    • 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 • 10 agrees and 2 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 • 8 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Not an archiver. Simplenote is for just that: simple markdown notes. Guest • Jun 2017 • 5 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • No import/export, requires use of "markups" instead of keystrokes for style changes Guest • Jul 2016 • 5 agrees and 4 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

For the back-end part a MySQL database stores everything.

    • Easily the most advanced alternative to Evernote. Basically has all the functionality of Evernote's web app, plus it's free and open source. The downside is that it's self-hosted, which means that if you're a beginner with setting stuff you you'll find it hard to get going. If that's the case, see if TagSpaces or Elephant might do what you want. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 2 agrees and 3 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 • 3 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
    • Can import from Evernote including tags and images. xeam404Jul 2016 • 1 agrees and 2 disagrees 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 • 5 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Notezilla is far more convenient, simple & easier then evernote. Love Notezilla, worth trying Guest • Aug 2016 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Probably the most complete open source, self-hosted or paid-for Evernote alternative in terms of functionality. Sadly, the English instructions aren't easy to find or that clear. But it works phenomenally well as an Evernote alternative. JohnFastmanJan 2017 • 6 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It supports, markdown, sequence diagram, flowchart, math, and syncing. The desktop clients (Win/MacOs) also export to HTML and PDF. It support Nested notebooks. I doesn't have web clipper, and this is fine as I don't need it. I like to structure my notes using Markdown. Many of instructions are in Chinese and some are in English. If you drop in question in English (in the forum), someone would reply in English. The team is in the progress of translating Chinese manual to English. iwankelaiahOct 2017 Disagree   Agree
