      Joplin vs Simplenote opinions
      Most users think Joplin is a great alternative to Simplenote.
      shikuz Joplin is simple, and it's great place for your notes. I get to have all my notes, on every device, anywhere, always securely synced via any service I choose. there are very few mature, free and open source note-taking solutions that offer all of that flexibility. But Simplenote is great too. :)

      Joplin's better than simplenote, because it's more features do help.

      ElectricFeelz Joplin would be perfect for me if it'd had a web version. But it is still amazing!

      Microsoft OneNote vs Simplenote opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Microsoft OneNote is still a legitimate alternative to Simplenote, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      OneNote is from some bygone era. The user interface is confusing, buggy and slow. It's far too complicated for a simple notes app. Not recommended.

      Microsoft OneNote is very complicated and buggy application. It has bad UX/UI design. To put in mildly, it's an awful application to store your notes. Certainly, not recommended.

      Pocc Microsoft Onenote is a fully functional note and content-tracking application. Simplenote keeps track of notes -- doing one thing and doing one thing well.

      Microsoft onenote suffers from bugs that slows the application and the android app is far worse....but still it's more organized ,anyway I use evernote and onenote and Google keep all at the same time so it doesn't bother me.

      CherryTree vs Simplenote opinions
      Most users think CherryTree is a great alternative to Simplenote.
      Cherry Tree is AMAZING. It works well with Windows and Linux. For Mac, there is talk of a package to be created... https://github.com/giuspen/cherrytree/issues/176 It does not crash (on ANY windows version or Linux system). Very fast and extremely lightweight for the amount of data one can have. I would recommend it ANY day.
