Never need to import / export your notes as you always have control of the data. Apps may come and go but your notes will always be with you.
The app comes with a clean easy to use interface designed to focus on just writing your journal entries without any distractions.
We have chosen Git as a backend as self-hosting a Git server is much simpler than almost any other software additionally there are already many commercial providers of Git. So you can choose who you want to trust with your notes. We currently don't support encrypting the notes but it's something we're actively working on.
