Like it and use it but it has problems that need fixing. Reading so much about crashing one would think the developers do something but last update was on March! Is it abandoned? Crashing happens when sync directly to nextcloud. 8f sync thru NC app is done, all works fine. Also, pinned notes don't show on top. What is pinning a note good for then! Would be nice if fixes are coming!

I downloaded this app because it is supposed to be able to sync with nextcloud. Other than that feature its a pretty mediocre note app. It worked fine for a week or so but started crashing every time I open a note. I tolerated it for a while and sent feedback and continued to use it. After a while it got to the point I couldn't use it at all anymore and I've not recieved any feedback from the devs.

Serious great app and works with owncloud servers as well. I really consider to switch from Keep to this one in the future, but currently a few things prevent me from doing so: 1) list view not available 2) dragging a note to a desired position in the list does not work 3) (nothing serious) pasting a note into a Subfolder requires to use the menu. Uncomfortable. There is so much space left of "New folder" and "new note", why not making a "paste" button, that appears, if a note is in the clipboard

hm I was thinking about adding other options such as quick create recordings, todolist, insert media... that's why there will be no room for pasting but we'll see ! List view will be available because it will make the "dragging to position" easier ! that's not my current focus but don't worry, this will be implemented ! :)
