Sorry for another noobie question. This is not aimed at Joplin in particular, it's about note taking apps in general.
If I can use my phone to access my files on my PC through a cloud syncing service, or write a text note on my phone and save it to my cloud sync service, why would I use a note taking app like Joplin or Evernote?
A bit of background. I started using Evernote in about 2011 for personal and work use but I'm not a power user at all and don't manage any projects that are complicated or require team collaboration. I eventually stopped using it because it seemed to be a black hole of info that I was worried I'd never find again. I recently started using it again, very lightly, and then tried Joplin and then realised I wasn't even sure if I needed it. It just seems to add an extra layer (barrier?) to any project management or info management process that I currently have and an extra data format between what I've got on my PC and what I'd put in Joplin. I'm not sure that last sentence will make sense, sorry.
