Joplin - An Open Source alternative to Evernote

I never thought I would need a 'to-do' list or a 'note taking' application before. I turn up at meetings with my trusty black pocket book and a pen. How 'old school' I hear you say but I am always late to the party. I signed up to Evernote some years ago but that is as far as I got. Now I cannot stop adding stuff to remember in 'Joplin'. So what is so different about this syncing 'to-do' app (compared to the Evernote free version)? Evernote has no 'markdown' support. Evernote has no 'end to end' encryption. Evernote has a two device limit. Evernote cannot work offline. Evernote isn't open source. The name 'Joplin' comes from composer Scott Joplin "Joplin is a free, open source note taking and to-do application, which can handle a large number of notes organised into notebooks. The notes are searchable, can be copied, tagged and modified either from the applications directly or from your own text editor
