Cross-Platform Notes for DB? Why not Paper?

Level 2

I'm looking for a simple note-taking app to use within Dropbox that works on both Android and Mac, and opens easily on for my buisness associates that I don't want to burden with converting formats, etc.

I want Paper to easily drop into Dropbox and be sharable.  This seems like a logical outcome.  Or does it?  I find its incredibly janky to use, but the note taking capability is simple enough.  Am I missing an easy way to import a single note into my dropbox?

If there is another app that you like, please let me know.  FWIW, I love Evernote and would use this exclusively, but alas, I need to share strange file types sometimes so Dropbox really fits the bill for that...

Re: Cross-Platform Notes for DB? Why not Paper?

Hey Matt (@Mattz), while it’s not currently possible to file a Paper doc under a folder created in Dropbox, integrating Paper files in your Dropbox filestructure is a popular request that we're constantly tracking in order to inform ongoing Paper development. 
At the moment, a viable workaround would be exporting your Paper docs (i.e. as .docx/.md/.pdf files) & saving within your Dropbox filestructure anew. Other than that Matt, it would be worth noting that we're always looking for your valuable input when creating the next version of Dropbox. I’ve already made sure to pass your comments on to our team specialists, as your thoughts help us better understand your needs & I’ve added your voice to the feedback gathered internally. 
Thanks for choosing Dropbox & we’re always here in case you’d like to continue our Paper discussion in more detail. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
