Fresh from Evernote after about a decade. (Decided to try Zoho & Joplin out.) I didn't use majority of the features "E" offered, as many 'day-ones' didnt, so the switch so far has been okay. There is a MIGRATE FROM EVERNOTE button in the Zoho settings. There was maybe a couple notes that didnt transition smoothly so I just copy and pasted. My ONLY thing to get used to is not being able to attach audio files INSIDE a note. Like you can record audio in it but not upload audio. Will update w time.

Hi, Thanks for the review. We understand your concern. Attaching a file within note is something which we're trying to make it available to you in fore coming updates. We don't have an exact timeline, but we'll keep you posted on this.

One of the best note apps with custom & expanded usage. This app is on every device I own. If I could request for an improvement I think it would be to improve the drawing, sketching and painting (maybe soon?) functionality. Lines are not rasterizing properly so it gets pixelated in zoom. If it helps any devs, may I recommend a great paint app to find some inspiration? Microsoft's 'Fresh Paint'. Thank you.

Works great. Good way to organize data like.... Finance, family, to do, pets etc. I use it mostly to store photos by categories or when scanning a doc or instructions on how to do something. Plus you can export your data. If you don't if you ever change phones or have to restore you only get the app. All the categorical data will be gone.
