      LordMax The first thing it's the possibility to work offline. It's opensource and free and it can be used in portable mode.

      miguelgarza Because it's based on Markdown files, it's so much faster. It has its own syntax too, that prioritizes linking files/ideas easily, similar to Notion. Also, it has a super-easy plugin system for extending it if that's your jam.

      nkh Obsidian is not an alternative, per se, but it is a really great complement to Notion, because it works well to view Notion exports. (It is kind of like using Notion with local storage. Or at least a workable solution while you are waiting for AnyType.io to get out of alpha/beta.)

      Evernote vs Notion opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Evernote is still a legitimate alternative to Notion, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Notion does databases and so much more that Evernote cannot.

      striblingthurmangroup User-friendly Is a Must! Evernote has folders and I can preview my notes before 'opening' them, so to speak. The clean white background with the Green logo makes for a nice visual. An alternative to Notion? It well may be. I think Evernote looks better when sharing notes/lists/to-do-lists. That clean background, logo and all, shows up in the recipient's email.
