Ratings and Reviews
Could be a serious Evernote alternative
I'm liking what I'm seeing - having a number of sync options is a great way to go as well as the support for different platforms. One thing that would make this a definite 5 star app is an 'open in' option to clip from other iOS apps....
A good start
This is a great start and shows much promise.
The app seems to be developed for the iPhone and looks clumsy on the iPad, the keyboard is wrong.
The web site says sync through any service yet only Microsoft seems available.
I won’t be changing from Evernote just yet but I will keep an eye on Joplin for the future.
A new hope
As with the best open source software Joplin is able to focus on its core job and nothing else, supporting straightforward note-taking and organisation, uncomplicated by concerns of monetisation and the need to endlessly differentiate.
Note-taking requires a good editor, simple organisation (it is baffling that basic, infinite nesting of folders is so hard for rivals to achieve), and stable sync, and that’s pretty much it.
The desktop app is very accomplished. This mobile app is functional but has some way to go to reach that level. The source code repository is a hive of activity and I’m confident that this app will soon be as pleasant to use as the desktop versions.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
