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 many devices as needed. The app can operate with files and folders located directly in the cloud on S3 compatible buckets (e.g. AWS, Minio, Wasabi, ...).
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.
