In order to test the WYSISWYG Markdown editing please double click on the document bellow or click the EDIT button in the top right corner of the app.

TagSpaces as Evernote alternative

The desktop version of TagSpaces can operate only with locally available files and folders. This feature can be nicely combined with the sync clients of cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Drive or Nextcloud, so the user can decide that certain notes (files) and/or notebooks (folders) can be synced to the cloud and this way accessible from as much devices as needed. The PRO edition of TagSpaces can on top of this operate with files and folders located directly in the cloud on AWS S3 buckets

This way the application can be used as valuable alternative to note-taking software such as Evernote, Onenote, Simplenote and Bear or personal wiki systems such as TidyWiki.

Own your data! In comparison to the most note-taking services, TagSpaces gives you the luxury to decide where your files are located, so you can keep the complete control over them.
