[APP][4.0+] Omni Notes - Material design + Open source note companion

Note taking open-source application aimed to have both a lightweight footprint on system performances and simple interface but keeping smart behavior.


I've always used a lot Evernote before, Google Keep later, but I've always felt that both of them were missing something I needed.
  • Evernote is very complete but too complex generally speaking, offline notes are available only on paid version and "too many clicks" are required to accomplish a task.
  • Google Keep is perfect to me for its interface but on the other side it has a poor multimedia attachment support, needs a registered account (like Evernote), and has only manual notes sorting.
So, starting from this point I started developing from scratch an open source application that is still far from being complete but is growing thanks to actual beta stage users feedback.




Actually the following functions are implemented:
☆ Material Design interface
☆ Basic add, modify, archive, trash and delete notes actions
☆ Share, merge and search notes
☆ Image, audio and generic file attachments
☆ Manage your notes using tags and categories
☆ To-do list
☆ Sketch-note mode
☆ Notes shortcut on home screen
☆ Export/import notes to backup
☆ Google Now integration: just tell "write a note" followed by the content
☆ Multiple widgets, DashClock extension, Android 4.2 lockscreen compatibility
☆ Multilanguage: 30 languages supported: https://crowdin.com/project/omni-notes

The only thing that I'm looking for is a good note taking app with a floating mode. Add that and you'll win me over.
I just tried the app out and I liked it a lot. Great job! Keep it up!

Thanks for your support!

What exaclty do you mean talking about floating mode? Something like the application widget but always staying on top of other apps?

Hi there,
a new version of this application will be released in a few on the play store for subscribers of the Beta program in the Google+ community.

These new Bta will come with notes tagging to categorize and color your stored information and security password to protect your notes.

Check it out!

Sorry for the late reply but yeah. That's exactly what i mean. You can check the play store for an app called floating stickies. Thats exactly what i wish for but unfortunately the app isn't being developed anymore.

I've seen what you meant, actually its not a prioritary feature.

The first things that must be competed are checklists and cloud synchronization.

Anyhow I'll be glad if you'd join the Google+ Community and add your request to the apposite section!

I love the interface and I really like that clock when setting the reminder time, it really is a cool time setting clock, however, is it possible to add in an am/pm option instead of the 24 hour clock? I am from the U.S. and while I like the idea of a 24 hour clock since the rest of the world uses it, almost no clocks here use the 24 hour format and it is just easier for me to use am/pm. Also do you plan, or is there a way, to add in some sort of check box option next to reminders or notes to indicate that they are done/taken care of or perhaps make an option to create either a regular nnote or a checklist type note something like that?
