Joplin is an open source note taking and to-do application, which can handle a large number of notes organised into notebooks. The notes are searchable, can be copied, tagged and modified. Images and other files can be attached to notes. The iOS application supports markdown rendering.

The notes can be synchronised with your other devices via Nextcloud, Dropbox, OneDrive or Joplin Cloud. Joplin is also available for Windows, macOS and Linux and all can synchronise with each others so your notes can be available on your mobile phone, computer, tablet, etc. Please see the official website for the list of available applications:

The desktop applications can be used to import notes from Evernote via .enex files, including the formatted content (which is converted to markdown), resources (images, attachments, etc.) and complete metadata (geolocation, updated time, created time, etc.). These imported notes can then be synchronised with the iOS app.

End-to-end encryption (E2EE) is supported and will encrypt the complete data, including notes, notebooks and attachments.

Make iOS user interface as functional as Windows

This app together with Dropbox has some serious potential to kick Evernote and Standard Notes to the curb, if you want an app with native markdown support, cross-platform support, and end-to-end encryption, give Joplin a try.

If the iOS user interface was on par with the Windows interface, and you could share files to and from Joplin in iOS, it would eclipse other markup-based note taking applications.

If this iOS experience were on par with Windows, I would give it 5 stars.

This app is da bomb

I was looking for a tool that I could use to organize and access my burgeoning collection of notes, and this app is ideal for me. I can use Markdown within my notes to easily create tables, etc. I can easily add jpegs and pngs to my notes. I can easily create links from within one note to another. I can easily rearrange my notebooks and move notes around without breaking links between them. I can easily access and work on my notes on my MacBook Pro, my iPad Pro, my iPad Mini, and my iPhone. I decided to try the app‘s reasonably priced Joplin Cloud, and it’s working beautifully. I‘ve got end-to-end encryption that is nearly invisible, in terms of how long it takes for things to sync and open. Did I mention the healthy community of plugins available, or how much I enjoy being able to also call up Joplin and run it from the command line when I‘m programming? When I was first setting up the app, I had to work through a couple of glitches, which was made much easier byte developer’s responsiveness and the app‘s active discussion boards. Right now I’ve got 482 notes in 42 folders, revised 1,024 times (?!). Some are quite short and others are vey long. The app has never choked or lagged, and searches are very fast. I love this app and use it all day, every day.

Awesome app!

I am a 10+ year Evernote user. I have tried close to a dozen apps. I’ve been following a Joplin for a couple years and it is making definite strides. Still lacking a few things but it is moving forward and I’m starting to use it more regularly. The syncing options are fantastic! I’m really in love with this project to have an open source note taking app that is multi platform and leaves you as the owner of your material. I’m on the edge of fully embracing Joplin as my primary productivity app in place of Evernote that has gotten buggy, slow and expensive.
