The beta is now closed. The beta program helped narrow down a few issues and should make Joplin Cloud (and Joplin Server) more reliable. More precisely:
About 7 bugs have been fixed, including two major ones regarding sharing, and one security issue.
About a dozen improvements, new features and optimisations have been added following your feedback.
As promised if you have a beta account you can keep using it and it will remain free for the three months after the account was created. After that, you will receive a link to start the Stripe subscription if you wish to keep using the account.
If you have sent me an email before the end of the beta and I didn't reply yet, I will do so soon, and will send you the confirmation email.
Thanks everyone for participating!
Joplin Cloud is a fully managed Joplin Server hosting. It is based on Joplin Server v2 and thus provides all of its functionalities, including sharing notes and notebooks, and other Joplin-specific features. Over time it will also receive additional features that are not possible using generic sync targets.
I'm planning to launch the service quite soon but first I am looking for beta testers willing to give it a try. You would get either a free Basic or Pro account, as you prefer. All participants will get the first 3 months for free (even after the beta period is ended) (*).
The Basic plan has a 10MB limit per item, and the note sharing feature. It will most likely be 1.99€ per month.
The Pro plan has a 200MB limit per item, and the note sharing feature, plus collaboration on notes via notebook sharing. It should be 5.99€ per month.
If you are interested, contact me (or send a PM) and let me know your email address, and whether you need the Basic or Pro account, and I'll create your account.
If you have any question please let me know!
How safe is it during the beta period?
The server has already been used by several users over the past few months so it should be quite safe. For extra safety, you can also install the Backup Plugin. Moreover, there's a daily backup of the Joplin Cloud server in case there's any issue.
What happens after the 3 free months are over?
You can either continue using the service by paying the monthly subscription, or cancel it. If you choose to continue using it, you can keep all your notes as they are. If you cancel, you can easily switch to a different service and of course keep your notes since they are all on your computer. The notes on Joplin Cloud will become read-only.
How to reports bugs?
Either here or GitHub is fine.
Will there be a free tier?
I thought about making the Basic plan free, but in the end I've decided against it because the purpose of this website is to provide fully managed hosting. And for free it's already possible to either self-host or use Dropbox, OneDrive, etc. Unlike other note taking apps, which have only one sync service, and thus needs a free tier to get users, Joplin has already plenty of free options, so creating another one didn't seem necessary.
For now I've set a rather low limit per item for the Basic plan but I may increase it once I get more metrics about the server performance and storage cost.
Are there any known bugs?
As of now, there are no known issue.
(*) Only one free account per person. Accounts that have not been active during the beta program (no sync operations), will be closed at the end of it.
