QOwnNotes is the notepad for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows (it's written in C++/Qt), that works together with the notes application of ownCloud.
So you are able to write down your thoughts with QOwnNotes and edit or search for them later from your mobile device (like with CloudNotes) or the ownCloud web-service.
Youll find binaries on the project webpage: http://www.qownnotes.org/
The notes are stored as plain text files and are synced with ownClouds file sync functionality.
I like the concept of having notes accessible in plain text files, like it is done in the ownCloud notes app, but I was not able to find a decent desktop note taking tool or a text editor, that handles them well. Out of this need QOwnNotes was born.
Please leave me a comment and tell me how you like QOwnNotes or write me your suggestions.
