Many times I like to store my notes on an online service so I can access them from everywhere or add new notes to them

I like it to be

  • secure
  • fast loading
  • few clicks
  • robust
  • free, small ad is ok
  • just for myself, but it is OK if there are sharing features

NOT needed: mobile app, desktop app, full-text search

  • Only as a web site, no mobile/desktop apps needed? Free? Advertisement OK? Do you need full-text search? Do you need any kind of sharing, or only for yourself, nothing shared/public?

  • @Ahmad: Would you consider self-hosting it (e.g., on a cheap shared webhosting account), too?

  • Something like a personal wiki would work for you if it requires a login? Apr 30, 2014 at 12:46
  • @unor I prefer it as another website service, something like google docs. it needs to be permanent. login is OK, but if there is another simple personalizing method is also ok

I use Google Keep:

enter image description here

  • It's fast
  • It's free
  • Easy to use
  • Has mobile apps

Here is a review from LifeHacker


Ever heard of Kanbanize?
It's actually a Kanban tool, but also work very well for taking notes. There is a free version of it, I don't know if the performance is very good because I only use the proversion.


You can use Zippyjot.com. It is a free online notepad that is fast, very easy to use and does not require a login. You can edit/delete your notes. Search and sort notes by date and title. There's also an auto save feature which will save your notes as you type


I use simplenote

It syncs with its apps

Been using it for 2 years.

There are also many userstyles for the website version if you want to change it into dark version.
