Could end up great

This software definately has potential to be great but great right now it is not. Right now it has sync problems and it doesn't seem like the developers are working on it. The web app works great but the computer based app have issues. I like it and I have some stuff in it but right now I don't feel that I can put my trust in it to put something that is important to me. A project like this could end up being awesome but on the other hand they could decide to abandon it tomorrow.


Couldn't make it work

I downloaded, followed the installation instructions, but I could not make it connect to dropbox. It greyed out the connect button. Then I tried to create folders for notes. That action would not complete, either. Removing.

Possible concern when setting up storage is that I get this warning: "The old version of the Dropbox platform is being retired on September 28, 2017. The developer of this app has yet to acknowledge the change, so this app may not continue to work in the future."


But the dropbox storage feature is working as of Aug, 2017. (I'm using it with encryption enabled; storage is in json format with encrypted data in the json document in a predefined dropbox folder.)

It works weel but only in one browser

You can't sync your notes beetween two device

  • Synchronizing with cloud storages. At the time only with Dropbox.

You can sync.

No you can't
I tryed many times

I agree. I have tried 20+ times over the course of a year and it won't connect with Dropbox. App does work good though if you don't want to sync.

Syncing works well with RemoteStorage as of 2017-09-13. I have my notes encrypted and edit my todo/shopping lists at work, home, and mobile device (browser client).

The sync is let say half-way, but it have a lot with "local orientation", so it is on local disk only, no cloud sync. It's even do not make sense to install to own server, as it do not store any data there. The main problem I can see, is, that if you will use different browser, you have to always set up sync and configuration again, to be able to connect the app. And the biggest pain for me - there is no way, how to share note by link :(
