Digital Note taking apps

Hey does anybody have options for digital note apps taking since I don’t trust apple or google. I would like something if possible that works on a variety of devices?

Personally I use an app called Notability it cost $9 I think but you can handwrite, type, do voice notes, voice to text, or handwriting to text. Plus you can import pdf and images

Been playing around with Standard Notes, seems to work fine.

I use Devonthink, it’s very powerful but only available for Mac and iOS. Evernote is probably the most popular, but I avoided it because your data get locked into their cloud format. I want to be able to get my data back out, and not be overly tied to someone else’s cloud.

One option you might find attractive is Obsidian. I haven’t used it, but from what I understand it works on pretty much any platform that runs the Electron framework (Mac, Windows, Linux, not sure about status of mobile apps).

I use Squid on Samsung and Acer because I can use a stylus and keep handwritten notes.
