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.

Software error leads to deletion of content of notes. They are just overwritten without undo. Happened around a server side update. So or so if I can lose my content on a click and can restore it then the app is useless. But liked it otherwise. Yes, it disappeared. I could restore it because I had it open in the browser. Edit and saved it there. Problem appeard with all check lists. If I open in app, notes are empty. Happens in the app only, not browser. also only after update of nextcloud app.

That's a problem. Are you sure they disappeared ? Did you check the "Browser" section of the app ? Thanks
