There is something wonderful in writing.

Notes was created on top of that belief.

It's your place to express yourself.

While using Notes you can be sure that every detail was meticulously chosen. Every decision, from the place of one pixel, to a new feature, was chosen with the goal in mind of making the best tool for you. And we'll keep on doing that.

Open Source and Zero Tracking.

Our app is open source, which means the code is available for everyone to see. On top of that, our app doesn't track your behavior.
