Default Synchronized note-taking (different from Synchronized swimming)

You can tag notes, and search across all of your notebooks if you want to. It also has a web clipper that you can use to save articles you are viewing in your browser. I find this makes it really handy. It sits on your browser toolbar and you click it to save whatever you're reading. Like Simplenote, it supports Markdown and html.

One thing I don't like about it, is the editor for adding your Markdown or html isn't so good. But you can export your note to an editor you have downloaded (there are lots of free ones) or use an editor online. Have a look at this one...

Dillinger shows you how to use Markdown too. Markdown is a way to add images or format your text, add link, etc... It's getting quite popular. Social networks like MeWe Reddit and others support it. There is a Markdown plugin for WordPress too.
Thanks Steve,

Wow, very useful!

For me, having a place I can take notes - which will synchronize between my computers and my phone - is critical... I need a place where I can jot down ideas wherever I have them... and I mean wherever ...!

I also don't want it to be too "clunky"... I find Google Docs a bit too "clunky" for my liking.

I'm trying out Joplin... This could work well...!

(I did like Simplenote, but have been having reliability problems of late...)

Thanks, Steve!

Best wishes,
