- Access to a NextCloud or ownCloud server with the Notes app installed is required to use this app. Visit https://nextcloud.com or http://owncloud.org for more information.
CloudNotes 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.

Ratings and Reviews
It's ok for an app that supports an already basic note taking app (ownCloud notes). It's pretty buggy though and lacks any additional tools to make it worth spending money on. For example, having - above the keyboard would help when making lists. The list are pretty buggy as sometimes it will just delete the last couple items for no real reason.
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.
No Longer Native to OwnCloud
I bought this app over a year ago and have never been able to install the app on my OwnCloud server (self-hosted or otherwise) therefore can’t connect to it on my iPhone. That’s extremely disappointing after paying even this small amount for an app.
Now, I can’t install OwnNotes on OwnCloud at all because it’s deprecated and considered a security risk.
Find something else. Don’t bother with this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
