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..
