I think this quote sums up why I love Standard Notes: "Perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away"

Simplistic, UI is easy to navigate, respects its users' privacy by locally encrypting the notes before syncing them to the server.

Good, functional piece of software. I use it to sync work and leisure notes to one place. The desktop app interface needs some work, though I do prefer a simple thing over too much bells and whistles for simply taking notes. Formatting in premium version also needs improvement, but core functionality (taking notes, tagging them and syncing across devices) works fine. I'm happy to support this project!

An app that gives me the features I need, and doesn't overdo it with other nonessentials. Quick. Secure.

Really only one working alternative for notes taking across various platforms. Besides encryption, it provides very good search across entire notes, your data is exportable. Mobile app lacks a bit of whistles and... but it has solid basic functionality and that's the most important. I've spent about a week comparing available solutions and my final choice was between Standard Notes VS iA Writer on Android (wonderful interface, I am crazy about it and I wish SN mobile app had the same markdown rendering, but iA Writer has no search option at all across notes folder) + QOwnNotes (good app, but lack of solid search engine, markdown rendering on desktop is somewhat limited) or Typora (nice app, but Folder Tree is sorted alphabetically only and no search across files in folder at all). My final decision was give Standard Notes a try and so far so good I'm happy with it. There's no perfection in this world but SN developer has attitude which as for me it seems to be right and correct as for secure and private note keeping software.

Only app considering privacy and at the same time usable also on iOS. Great!

Very good. I paid for the upgrade after few days of trying it.

I paid for the extensions and also to encourage the developer to further enhance it.

It is really good. Sync is almost instant live and fast. The only one I could find on all platforms. Including Linux which is abandoned by many usually but not by this developer, and very importantly a native iOS app and that's what really differentiates it from Laverna and that's why I switched to this from Laverna.

It needs real improvements though in the iOS app and that's why I paid to support them. The iOS app yes works right but is limited in features especially attaching files and markdown. Inserting photos I still didn't try it on the desktop version but I hope it is part of the paid "attaching files feature" that I have paid for as attaching stuff like this is very handy and you will need it sooner or later. The iOS app also needs to have an enhanced share button that appears in other apps to easily share things to it.
I also use the Android app a lot as well and I hope the same for the Android app as it is just like that of the iOS, but my whole focus went at the beginning throughout the review on the iOS one simply because I didn't find that on Laverna and Laverna is promising an Android app soon.

I will be a loyal customer every year as long as I see continuous support for all the platforms with any neglect to any and continuous improvement. At the end the price is more or less similar to the commercial ones like Evernote but it is worth it and I prefer how it syncs on this one and platform support.

Good luck.
I recommend it to everyone to start with the free version. Laverna is just appealing at the beginning aesthetically without all platform support, and if you upgrade this one you end with better looking notes than Laverna.

Thanks for all.

Standard Notes helps you keep your notes private and has different add-ons that help you add useful features and change the editor. You can change the editor for a note, for example to write code. The iOS app is great and works offline so you always have access to your notes.

An encrypted form of Evernote. Not so powerful as Evernote but encrypted! Very good service and an open file format.
