Nice to meet you.

Metanote is designed for enthusiasts of note-taking and writing, with special thanks to Org mode and Emacs.

Metanote is a local-first, privacy-first text processing tool, with powerful TODO management capabilities. TODO items usually come up while taking notes, so in Metanote, you can scatter your TODO items across various documents, and Metanote will automatically give you an overview of all the things that you have to do. In Metanote, everything is text, everything is editable.


* Freedom & Private

Metanote is a pure text editor, where all files are stored locally in plain text format and organized in the most basic file and folder structure. You have absolute freedom in how you use your files, independent of any platform or software, including Metanote itself. This means you will never be locked into any platform or tool due to your data.

* Org mode

Metanote fully supports org mode 9.3.6 syntax, including features like Capture and Agenda View, allowing for a perfect and even enhanced org mode experience on smartphones.

* A silky-smooth editing experience

Metanote is developed purely natively, not based on web development, which gives it better performance. Even large files provide a silky-smooth editing experience. The innovative mini buffer feature allows you to record inspirations, ideas, or to-dos without interrupting your current work. Additionally, the full-text search and multi-window editing functions significantly enhance content handling efficiency.

Aiming for the impossible, one step at a time to get there.

Make an impossible goal that nobody has been able to achieve. Become fully dedicated to it and achieve it one step at a time. That, in short, is Metanode. I have been following this app since its early days and am keenly observing its progress. The iOS app is developing well, and the other platforms are scheduled next. Once the vision is achieved, this will make org mode barrier-free and hopefully usable for many more people who have been wanting to use it but are not as tech-savvy.

Developer Response ,

Dear user,
Thank you for your feedback and support. We will continue to provide high-quality apps and services. We will develop more features as soon as possible to bring users the most complete org mode experience on mobile and become the best solution for knowledge management, documents, notes, and to-do lists.

emacs and iOS

Emulating emacs is a difficult task. Especially when trying to make it feel like a “modern app”.

While still new and light on other “power user” features and a couple bugs here and there, I feel this app feels like the best combination of emacs org-mode and iOS. Other apps are too much like emacs and less iOS. Others are the opposite. This feels like a good balance. Purchased the lifetime sub as an investment.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your support. This is exactly what I aim to achieve. Please feel free to report bugs or make requests to me.
