Standard Notes. I do not bother with Markdown, I just write creatively like how torrent scene groups write those NFO text files if needed.
Also pen and paper. Uni-ball pens like Jetstream and Eye micro are my favourite.
On my phone simple notes and quillnote Computer notepadqq
I’ve found Evernote usefull for compiling resources but I wouldn’t use it for personal things. I liked Standard Notes when I used it but I always go back to markdown and plain text files (Markor).
Big fan of pen and paper though.
I see social media people organizing their entire lives with Notion and that hurts my brain.
Obsidian is great
I recommend logseq
just standard apple notes since it syncs across my devices
I use orgzly. It also shows notifications for schedules/deadlines. If you want to stick to markdown, Neutrinote CE is pretty good
markor for notes, opentask for checklists, both synced using nextcloud (in case you decide you do want sync)
I did a long search and this is all that worked 🤷
Markor is the best, and any folder of markdown files can also be synced with syncthing.
For shopping lists, I just text someone and tell them I’m only texting them because I need to make a note for myself.
This is the first I’m hearing about dedicated notes apps. The modern age, eh?
For almost everything else, I use a pen and paper. Unless it’s research, for which I eventually open a word document and start reformulating my notes into sections.

I used to use Google notes until I lost loads. Then I stopped trusting it.
Come to think of it, I do send myself emails now and again if I’m out without paper and have an idea.
I use notally and turtl. Notally I use as a local checklist making app. Turtl I use to save other types of notes like addresses recipes and things. Turtl also has a desktop app version that connects with the phone one. Notally is available on F-droid.
Personally, I just write markdown files. I don’t use Android, I exclusively use Linux, but I’m sure there’s a markdown editor for Android.
How do you sync/share markdown files between devices, if that’s something you like or need to do?
This is not something I’d expect a normal user to be able to do, but I run my own Nextcloud instance where I store things like my notes and password manager database.
standard notes is pretty good
Standard notes is my favorite
Take my comment with a grain of salt as I don’t have an android phone, but from some quick Reddit searches I’ve seen Obsidian and Joplin recommended. I don’t know if they’d work for what you need, might be worth a look.
obsidian is cool but proprietary, Joplin started crashing on my laptop and used way too many resources even when it was working
I’ve tried a few, but my requirements are a bit more stringent as I want Markdown support and ideally some self-hosted sync function to other devices.
There’s a super bare bones Notes app on F-Droid which has Markdown support, but it doesn’t seem to want to remember my save directory. Obsidian seems ok but it’s way too over the top in terms of a GUI.
