Nextcloud Notes: secure note-taking, integrated

Originally published at: Nextcloud Notes: secure note-taking, integrated - Nextcloud

What started as a community app is now a core part of Nextcloud – introducing Nextcloud Notes!

Do you ever…

➡️ Need a quick way to take notes?

➡️ Suddenly think of a brilliant idea?

➡️ Want to brainstorm or plan?

Nextcloud Notes is a convenient, open source and secure note-taking app for all your thoughts and ideas!

A note-taking dream

Built with Nextcloud Text, Notes supports a variety of rich text elements like headers, bold and italics, images, tables, links and most recently, the Smart Picker!

For instance, why not ask ChatGPT for some ideas?

Why Nextcloud Notes?

We often jot notes down on the go 🏃, and seek out the quickest, most convenient way possible ✅. After all, we’re not about to sit down and write a novel.

For many people, they pull out their phone 🤳 and open the default notes app on their iphone or use another free space run by Big Tech companies. That’s an issue, and for this reason the community has been developing and maintaining the Notes app for a long time.

Since the beginning, Nextcloud always aims to move more people to more sustainable, open-source options and integrating the Notes app into Nextcloud is another step forward. We are pleased to bring you yet again a space where you don’t have to compromise your privacy and can write and note-take with reassurance that your notes, ideas, plans and data remain yours.

Note-taking for any occasion

Just to give you an idea of the possibilities with Nextcloud Notes (once you know your ideas are safe and sound), here’s a list of what you can do:

  • Meeting notes
  • Shopping list
  • Vacation planning
  • Random ideas
  • Budget tracker
  • Much more!

Get Nextcloud Notes on mobile!

The Nextcloud Notes app on iOS and Android are free to use and give you a mobile friendly note-taking advantage!

“Easy to use, with a beautiful, simple, modern UI and seamless integration with Nextcloud (especially with the Notes server app built into most public Nextcloud providers).”

The latest nextcloud note app cannot be synchronised with Nextcloud Hub 4 (nc26).

Is there anyone else having similar problems besides me?

It’s working fine for me.
NC 26.0.1
Ubuntu 22.04.2

I would like to use Nextcloud Notes on iOS/iPadOS devices, instead of Apple Notes. Would need some more features that Apple Notes has.

For example - sending pictures, emails and documents to it, doing tables, cross-linking the notes (having a master page with links to sub documents), fast search.

Is there any roadmap/any way to contribute so I can get rid of Apple Notes in the future?

Nextcloud Notes is glorious. :rocket:
It was what made accessing notes from on your mobile phone and in the web possible!

Thank you for the app!
An option to import & export notes would be really helpful and most welcome!

Yes that would be cool. Here is a thread with problems with someone without a backup. But normally you can backup and restore the Nextcloud folder for Notes which includes the markdown files.
