They do have a strong philosophy, stating:

What if I can’t afford the price of the paid plans? Standard Notes can help users achieve higher efficiency and better quality work through the range of tools offered. However, we realize that excluding those who can’t currently afford the price we deem sustainable can lead to a sort of “efficiency impoverishment” cycle, where those without the financial means to acquire best-in-class tools are locked in a place where they can’t produce best-in-class work.

Good to see that there are companies out there for the good of our world. ❤️
