Hi FORKS. Tuesday I announced my new app, Turtl for Chrome (and soon Firefox). Turtl is a private Evernote alternative. It uses AES-256bit encryption to obscure your notes/bookmarks before leaving the browser. What this means is that even if your data is intercepted on the way to the server or if the server itself is compromised, your data remains private.

Even with all of Turtl’s privacy, it’s still easy to share boards with friends and colleagues: idea boards, todo lists, youtube playlists, etc. With Turtl, only you and the people you share with can see your data. Not even the guys running the servers can see it…it’s just gibberish without the key that you hold.

One more thing: Turtl’s server and clients are open-source under the GPLv3 license, meaning anyone can review the code or use it for themselves. This means that Turtl can never be secretly compromised by the prying hands of hackers or government gag orders. The world sees everything we do.

So check out Turtl and start keeping track of your life’s data. If you want to keep up to date, follow Turtl on Twitter.
