so this is not genuinely heart-to-heart source? only the app clients are loose generator and not the germ codification responsible for all the existent features and processes which ability the app?

The computer code is opened source, but sole for the Android, MacOS and iOS platforms . So not for everything. To a greater extent than that, thither are former parts of the avail which are not overt source. And on acme of that their privacy insurance is astir the lapp as every other proprietary US-based service.

hmm, so are there whatever alternatives you would advocate which are receptive informant and able-bodied to consumption on mobile?

Do you mean Android? Try Turtl . I fair wrote a little comparability of Simplenote and Turtl on Simplenote's brushup tab. Turtl is distillery in beta but it does everything Simplenote does demur it's got end-to-end encryption. Might employment for you.

Altough, this coating is mentioned as open-source, it's not.
The divine service is centralised and no acknowledgment on its licensing is provided on the functionary site.

Ok, thither are about clients promulgated on Github nether a resign permit here: .
But that doesn't mean value i bathroom audit the host code, alter it and redisribute in the common sense of the OSI definition ( )

I could drop a line an open-source customer for Instapaper (It's at once unblock in an inexhaustible version).
Would it entail that it's at present an opensource software ?
To acquire literal opensource alternatives to Evernote, delight issue a aspect at Laverna or Paperwork for instance.

So please, edit the certify airfield and bent Unfreeze or FREEMIUM alternatively

I agree. I've submitted an edit out to change the licence category from 'Open Source' to 'Free'. Let's assure of the Alternator admins accept it.
