The Notes app is a distraction free notes taking app for Nextcloud. It provides categories for better organization and supports formatting using Markdown syntax. Notes are saved as files in your Nextcloud, so you can view and edit them with every Nextcloud client. Furthermore, a separate REST API allows for an easy integration into apps (Android, iOS, and 3rd-party apps like the console and many more which allow convenient access to your Nextcloud notes). Further features include marking notes as favorites.
In your Nextcloud, simply navigate to »Apps«, choose the category »Office«, find the Notes app and enable it. Then open the Notes app from the app menu.
Nextcloud will notify you about possible updates. Please have a look at CHANGELOG.md for details about changes.
Before reporting bugs:
- get the newest version of the Notes app
