I prefer offline note-takers with a quick upload/download cloud storage feature. Cloud services like Evernote and especially Notion are too clunky and distracting for simple notes for me and I end up spending so much time organising instead of note-taking.

On Android, I use the open source Markor app from F-Droid. I have a synced Google Drive folder structure set up and my docs are saved in there automatically. I much prefer this mostly offline, rudimentary approach and by having my files directly accessibile (unlike notion etc) I can choose whichever app(s) I want per platform!

Additional note: I also like this approach because I can use several apps per platform. Your example I might write a blog post in Typora but fiction in Calmly. Again, the direct file approach is much better for this use case!
