Obsidian Alternatives

    Obsidian is described as 'A second brain, for you, forever. The human brain is non-linear: we jump from idea to idea, all the time. Your second brain should work the same' and is a very popular Note-taking App in the Office & Productivity category. There are more than 50 alternatives to Obsidian for a variety of platforms, including Mac, Windows, Linux, Online / Web-based and iPhone. The best alternative is Joplin. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Standard Notes or Notion.
