TaskPaper Alternatives

    Getting stuff done is super easy when using a tool as simple and work-focused as TaskPaper. Its clutter-free design and reliance on plain text results in a fast and efficient, keyboard-centered workflow.

    While TaskPaper's format is plain text, it's not exactly the same as Markdown. Those already comfortable with Markdown might prefer a note app with Markdown support.

    TaskPaper is a commercial app strictly made for Mac whereas most alternatives are web-based with desktop and mobile clients covering everything from Windows, Mac and Linux to Android and iPhone. Most of them are likewise commercial with some free offerings, while some outstanding open-source options exist as well.
