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.
