My kingdom for a good cross-platform note-taking app

Does it exist?

I use an Android-based phone. And an iPad. And a Mac. And sometimes a PC.

I’ve tried all the candidates I can find so far and they all fail.

Evernote doesn’t sync between clients in a secure way. And I define secure as “let me pick my cloud service be it Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, or other.”

OneNote fails so badly here, the Mac version only syncs with OneDrive. Um…. Simply allow for local file storage and we might have a winner. It’s a great app in many ways.

Outline has no support for tables. That will do it. Still angry it took me $20 to learn that lesson.

IA Writer is a lovely, simple writing tool…. for Mac and iPad. No Android version. Oh… And no table support but the UI is nice enough I could forgive them.

Anyone? And no, Office 365 and Google Apps are a deal-breaker, same reason as Evernote. I want my data where I want it to be.
