Nixnote is open-source desktop app for Evernote. It was written in Java until NixNote 2, which is a rewrite in C++ and Qt, with better performance and a reduced memory usage, though it still uses Java for encrypting and decrypting text which is optional.
- Synchronizes with Evernote servers
- Local data caching
- Cross platform
- Local-only and synchronized notebooks supported
- Database may be encrypted locally
