Nextcloud Notes 4+
Note: Access to a Nextcloud server with the Notes app installed is required to use this app. Visit https://nextcloud.com for more information.
Nextcloud Notes is a notes editor that syncs with the Notes app (https://github.com/nextcloud/notes/releases) on your server.
Once you have logged in to your server, all notes will be kept in sync between devices and also the web interface. Optionally supports sync on startup.
You can create and delete notes directly on the device. Notes can be organized in categories. Edit as plain text or use markdown for rich formatting. Notes can be copied or exported to other apps or services in several formats.
If you have a sync client (optional) installed on your desktop computer all notes will be there too, and can be edited with any text editor.
Nextcloud 26 ready !
Ratings and Reviews
Not production ready
App is missing core functionality such as: multi-step undo. No support for multiple accounts/profile-switching such as work/home. There is a strong focus on markdown instead of getting robust plain-text support to work first. Updates are not well tested in seem to introduce regressions as much as fix exising problems. Older versions which had fewer features, ran smoothly. As of 4.0.4, interaction is slow and clunk-clunk-clunky. Adding text to a note adds ~100ms delay per letter typed (with Notes v4.0.4 and NC 23.0.7)
Overall the app is of middling utility, especially considering its age. Best to wait a for quality to mature
I recommend using Koder app with nextcloud webdav instead.
Doesn't work well
When service is intermittent you will lose note data. For example traveling through an area with poor reception.
This software is entirely reliant on a connection which is a major design flaw. Notes should be saved locally with a unique tag (such as QOwnNotes does) and then sync and remove tag when available.
Instead this software periodically syncs your note to the cloud which is pointless. In a browser this makes sense. On an application, it makes no sense.
I encourage the developer to better the synchronization to allow note taking without connection to the server. For now a massive ring will prevent notes until some net connection is established.
This is totally unreliable and the same as using the phone's browser to connect online.
edit: Just add a Safari shortcut to your home screen from your notes website. Works just as well.
Coming along nicely
Thanks to the developer(s) for the several recent improvements to this app. With the addition of better Markdown support, file-names/management improvements, and editor improvements in general, using this app is a much better experience.
Better Markdown-entry support and improved check-off list handling would be welcome improvements.
