I used to use notion for note taking. And then I got to know there are many open-source and more private note taking apps in the market. Like Notesnook, Obsidian etc.. And now I am stuck on which one I should be using. Something like notion but more secure.

    Welcome to the rabbit hole. After a few years of trying different approaches, I would recommend that you start by writing down a list of features which you can't live without (realtime collab, included task management, outline vs. block based format etc.). Keep it as short as possible, then try the apps that fit it. Choosing something that operates on text files on your disk is a plus.

    Oh and don't fall for the false promise of One app for everything™. I'd argue it's often better to use a note app, a task app and a spreadsheet app separately. Learned the hard way.

    Good luck searching!

    @MammaNeedHummus I love it too.. But there are too many features missing compare to notion.

    Nowadays I prefer the old, analog technology. The bad thing is not being encrypted.

    I tried Obsidian. I would love it if the mobile app worked

    I'm on the verge of making my own because nothing is quite right. It's not even really about fundamental features, Obsidian gets almost everything right, I just really really want to be able to tweak the UI and the best way to do that cross-platform is quite bizarrely to make my own.

    The worst thing obsidian fucks up which bothers me enough to consider building an app is that if I sync the settings and plugins with the vault the UI scaling also syncs across my desktop and phone. Why on Earth would I ever want to sync that, even across monitors on the same computer, let alone distinct fucking platforms?
