Note sharing app/program
« on: July 13, 2021, 04:34:04 AM »
I've been alternating between various options for taking notes and having them available from my laptop and android mobile.
I started with Microslop Outlook notes but couldn't find an easy way to share them. Moved onto Nextcloud Notes but wasn't 100% happy due to differences in text format (editing) from the mobile app and notepad on windows. (The old cr/lf difference).
I'd also tried dokuwiki and relying on the web interface to access notes but not keen on wiki format, mainly indexing/searching.

After some looking around I've started playing with 'Joplin Notes'. Whilst it can use nextcloud to sync it also supports plain webdav, has apps for android, ios, windoze, linux. So far the only significant issue, and I'm not sure if it is or isn't, is the note isn't stored in plain text.

So far I've tried the joplin app on my android mobile, tablet and two windoze (7 & 10) laptops. And set up a webdav folder share on my sme10 server.
Setup was very easy to  do.

Thought I'd put this out there as it may help someone else and/or get some feedback on what others are using for digital note taking.
