Seems like the only thing you get for free is encryption and a plain text editor (not even markdown, though i may be wrong).

Btw notice how many 5-star reviews and comments here are from people registered the same day the comment is made and they only rate this one app, each praising encryption. This app also (at the moment) has significantly more reviews and comments than any of its alternatives. It may be a coincidence though.

Ha, we call out alternativeTo many places on our site, and encourage users to leave unbiased reviews :) It's on our homepage, on our help page, and when a user signs up, we also link here. No shenanigans, promise. This is too important to us to be screwing around ;)

LOL this describes me. I can tell you I am a real user of Standard Notes and ended up here by their kind request to post a like.

I completely agree.
I understand that it's freemium software, but with the free version you can't even format the text..
I just uninstalled this after 10 minutes, and I'll stick to OneNote once again which just does the job.
Privacy is a good point but you must provide the basic expected functionality for the text editor.

Everything you need in a free, secure, platform independent notepad app. Data is encrypted but accessible everywhere, and kept synchronised across multiple devices. What more could you want ?
And, if you are left wanting, the required functionality is probably available via one of their extensions. As simple, or complex, as you want. Absolutely brilliant.

How can you not? It's open sourced and client encrypted. Way better then going with another option like Apple notes. Dayone journal that doesn't even encrypt client side and these are personal journals jeeze. Standard notes is setting the standard for sure.

Easy to use, responsive friendly team on slack. Nice extensions and of course zero-knowledge encryption and backup options.
