If you like the concept of having notes accessible in plain text files, like it is done in the Nextcloud / ownCloud notes apps to gain a maximum of freedom then QOwnNotes is for you.

To get more on-line features for your notes, like versioning and trash access, you might also want to install the QOwnNotesAPI app on your server.
To access your ownCloud notes from your mobile device you may want to get one of these:
On Android you could also use any sync-tool like Synchronize Ultimate or FolderSync to sync your note files and use software like neutriNotes or Markor to edit your notes.
On iOS Notebooks may also work well (syncing notes via WebDAV).
You can visit the QOwnNotes project page for more screenshots.
To get the most current features you can build the application from the source code. Download the latest source here: QOwnNotes Source on GitHub as ZIP
Alternatively you can also checkout the code directly from the git repository:

Then download Qt Creator, open the
src/QOwnNotes.pro and click on Build / Run.
Or you can build it directly in your terminal:
cd srcBuilding QOwnNotes For Development
build binary translation files if you want another language than English
If you are going to work with the code, then you can do the following instead of the above:
cd src qmake CONFIG+=DEV_MODE CONFIG+=debug .. make -j4
