Alternatives to iPhone Notes: Top 10
The iPhone has a native notes app that is really nice and complete with all the basic functionality you could ever want. However, there are people who prefer to use some of the alternatives to iPhone Notes.
If for some reason you don't like Notes and want to use some other app to take your notes, no problem! Just check out some of the best apps you can use in place of the iOS native one below.
To start off the list, we have what is probably the best note-taking app, Evernote. It is a cross-platform app that works great for both handwritten notes and copying articles from the internet. Its only problem is its relatively high price for the full version.
It works in any of the best web browsers, Windows, Mac, and Android and iOS smartphones. In its paid version, it supports all types of formats, in addition to allowing you to scan documents. Check it out on the App Store!
2. Paper by Dropbox
Then there's the service offered by one of the best cloud storage services, Paper by Dropbox. It's by far the best alternative to Notes on the iPhone for anyone who needs a collaborative app.
That is, you (and everyone in your group) can add and edit notes, review ideas, and even manage meetings. It has features for creating to-do lists and assigning to-do lists to individual members and much more. Check it out now!
Nebo, by Myscript, is a very good option if you want to take notes easily. With it, you can write, draw, and use structures just like a normal notebook, working particularly well with Apple Pencil. You can even convert what you write into typed words!
It's free, with limitations. Unfortunately, it doesn't have an iPhone version, it's for iPads only. It allows you to create custom gestures to perform the most varied functions, being able to copy, paste, delete, and more. Check out!
4. WorkFlowy: Note, List, Outline
One of the best alternatives to Notes on the iPhone is WorkFlowy. It works by letting you organize everything in the form of a list, being an entirely free option that works on several platforms in a synchronized way.
Its main objective is to let you create lists with infinite titles and subtitles, saving as many lines of content as you need by separating them into sections. It's very easy to use and edit, perfect for those who like to organize themselves that way. Follow the link!
5. InkPad Notepad
InkPad Notepad is an application designed to look a lot like an ordinary notebook, in which you can create notes from within the app and access them on almost any device. In other words, it is cross-platform! It's a really simple option, but it does everything you need very well.
You can create notes, to-do lists, shopping lists, edit notes and lists, all being saved automatically. It has a very complete search function, and it even allows you to share the news created by email, SMS, and more. See more in the App Store.
At Notion, we have one of the most powerful alternatives to iPhone Notes, offering a unique and far superior note-taking experience. And, of course, it's compatible with multiple platforms, including Mac, iOS and browsers, among others.
It has a flexible page system that lets you create pages as you wish very easily. His tables are very complete, each one being almost like a “note” in its own right. Better yet, it offers free individual plans! Find out more through the link.
Bear (not to be confused with TunnelBear, one of the best VPNs) offers a great writing experience along with phenomenal formatting. The biggest downside is that it's only available to the Apple ecosystem. That is, Android, Windows, and browsers are left out.
It allows you to easily organize from intuitive shortcuts, has an archiving feature to take notes of search results without deleting them, and much more. Go to the official website to see more.
8. Google Keep
Google Keep is not only one of the best alternatives to Notes on the iPhone, it is one of the best note apps overall. It is available for iOS, Android, and any browser. In other words, you can use it on basically any operating system.
It's completely free with no hidden cost and it's very simple to use (and in its interface). The only downside, really, is that the organization leaves a lot to be desired. Still, it's worth checking out!
This is the best note app if you are someone who values security above all else. That's because Saferoom encrypts all your notes and information! Your encrypted notes can be stored on any cloud storage service.
Something worth mentioning is that if you lose your password or forget what it is, there's no way you can get it back by losing your grades. It's really worth it if you want to ensure their safety! Check out!
10. Post-it notes
To complete the list, we have the Post-it app, one of the weirdest alternatives to iPhone Notes. This completely free app aims to bring the much-loved Post-its to the screen of our smartphone!
With it, you can choose from many paper colors, write using your own handwriting, and even scan hundreds of physical post-its at once. You can then share them with anyone you want and with other platforms. It's really simple and not very complete, but it's quite interesting. See more.
