Notes

Notes is an open source and cross-platform note-taking app that is both beautiful and powerful.

Website: get-notes.com
Our vision for the future on our Wiki.

Features Overview

  • Native app (written in C++ with Qt).
  • Fast with a low memory footprint.
  • Fully open source and cross-platform (Linux, macOS, Windows).
  • Completely private - tracks nothing.
  • Beautiful and sleek looking, yet still powerful.
  • Folders and tags. Organize your ideas hierarchically using nested folders and universally using tags.
  • Markdown Support. Format text without lifting your hands from the keyboard.
  • Different themes. Switch between Light, Dark, and Sepia.
  • Feed View. Select multiple notes to see them all one after another in the editor.
  • Always runs in the background. Use the hotkey "Windows" + 'N' to summon Notes. "control" + "N" for macOS.
  • Keyboard shortcuts. Meant to have the option to be used solely with a keyboard (but more work needs to be done there).
  • What feature will you contribute?

Support the project

If you use Notes daily, consider donating money so I can pay programmers to develop new features and fix bugs. I partner with Github Sponsors and Patreon to receive contributions. You can also put a bounty on specific issues using Bountysource. I currently make a living from ads on the website, but I'd like to stop with that.
