Simple note taking

Note: It's fairly early days in development here, so please expect a few rough edges.

Iotas is a simple note taking app with mobile-first design and a focus on sync with a Nextcloud Notes.

Although consciously bare bones there are a few features

  • Sync. with Nextcloud Notes
  • Offline note editing, syncing when back online
  • Basic search
  • Favorites
  • Spell checking
  • Simple category editing and filtering
  • Optional markdown syntax highlighting and rendered view
  • Follow system-wide dark style preference or make own choice
  • Ability to change font size

Slightly more technical details, for those into that type of thing

  • Nextcloud Notes sync. is via the REST API, not WebDAV, which makes it snappy
  • There's basic sync. conflict detection
  • Notes are constantly saved
  • Large note collections are partially loaded to quicken startup

Why "Iotas"? An iota is a little bit and this app is designed for jotting down little things on little devices. Iota stems from the same Greek word as jot and is commonly used in negative statements eg. "not one iota of …", but we think the word has more to give. Maybe somebody will take note?
