All Hail Standardnotes!

Today I want to share an app with everyone. I'm sure many people have heard of it or tried it. But then again I am sure many haven't. I have been a Standardnotes user for a couple of years now and absolutely love it. I really don't think there is an app that compares.

Directly from there site,

Standard Notes is a safe place for your notes, thoughts, and life's work.
A free, open-source, and completely encrypted notes app.

But Standardnotes is really so much more. Let's start with security.
The free version includes:

  • AES-256 encryption.
  • Easy to use, open-source apps on Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and Linux
  • Automatic sync with no limit on data capacity
  • Unlimited devices
  • Web access
  • Offline access

If you get the paid version which goes from $10 a month to $2.50 a month if you do the 5yr plan, which is where I'm at. It adds..

  • Encrypted attachments for your notes stored directly in your Dropbox or Google Drive.
  • Unlimited access to powerful extensions, editors, and themes.
  • Note version history (up to 100 years)
  • Automated backups of your data to your Email, Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive
  • Two-factor authentication (this I think should be on the free version as well)

Of course then there are the extensions which make it even better you can get..

  • A blog such as this one with listed blogging platform, get it with your own domain if on the extended(paid) plan.
  • Token Vault allows you to use Standardnotes as an Authenticator app
  • Task Editor lets you use it for todo lists.
  • You can do spreadsheets within it.
  • Multiple Markdown editors
  • A vim editor
  • Filesafe - Attach files to your notes and have them automatically encrypted and uploaded to your Dropbox, Google Drive, WebDAV server, or AWS S3.
  • Encrypted backups to Dropbox, Google Drive, or Onedrive
  • Get emailed backups
  • Encrypted file sharing with FileSend
  • Multiple themes and other addons beyond the above.

Standardnotes is just crazy useful while at the same time keeping all your data safe. I really can't say enough about it. Oh, did I mention it's all opensource?

If you are looking for that Evernote or Onenote replacement and are privacy minded. This may be for you. I really couldn't live without it at this time. Give it a go..
