    pros, cons and recent comments

    Both Standard Notes and Inkscape are open source markdown-based note-taking apps that work/sync on Win, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. Both have extensions and both use end-to-end encryption. Inkdrop recognizes programming syntax, but Standard Notes is half the price.

    Standard Notes uses markdown and offers multi-platform sync with end-to-end encryption. It's also open source and extensible. Inkdrop is similar, except it has NOT got end-to-end encryption (read their forum; user data touches US-based servers unencrypted) and it's aimed primarily at software developers. Inkdrop is twice the price.

    This alternative is disputed. Atom is still a legitimate alternative to Inkdrop, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Atom is a text editor application, used mainly to do programming. Inkdrop is for notes taking, not the same user cases.
