Good morning and #tzag, dear #Fediverse, I need your #help, please!

I am looking for a #notes and #task app for #Android that fully syncs via #Nextcloud with several Android devices. Any advice appreciated!


Tasks (Keep track of your list of goals) -

You could use tasks for notes too or try

Nextcloud Notes

Carnet seems really good

For notes I recommend Nextcloud Notes¹ using with the Nextcloud Notes Android App²


#orgzly works with anything that syncs files - it creates human readable #orgmode files, so you can use any text editor on other platforms to edit this data (well and emacs of course, where that format comes from)

OpenTasks via F-Droid is my go-to task app. It plays nicely with NextCloud and has an overall great UI/UX.

Thank you very much!

For a more advanced notes app you have carnet app for nextcloud, and the carnet app for Android (available on f-droid). Also available on Linux, Windows...

Thanks a lot!

I would highly recommend Nextcloud Notes for Android (from F-Droid repo). For desktop: QOwnNotes (perfectly works with QOwnNotes Nextcloud app), it's very powerful crossplatform app fully compatible with Nextcloud Notes app.

Thanks for the advice

You can't share note between users but sync between multiple devices should work very well, you also have an online editor on the nextcloud app store and an app for linux desktop, and the Android app (fdroid and play store)

Thank you very much!

In case you would like to use an alternative App for #notes, try #joplin. It is available for #Androud, #iOS, #Windows, #Linux and syncs via WebDAV.

An article from #nextcloud blog:

Thank you very much! I will check Joplin out.

Markor? Bit manual though...

Thank you. I put it on my list and check it out 😊

just my 2¢ but just searching in @fdroidorg for Nextcloud will give you plentiful results. Carnet and Markor were some of the few already mentioned.

also check Carnet. I like it because it supports images in notes.

Thanks a lot. Will check it as well 😊👍

Which also requires

DAVx⁵ (CalDAV/CardDAV Synchronization and Client) -

Thank you very much! Although I find these apps great, I feel uncomfortable using 3 apps for 1 application: I for myself do not understand why notes and tasks are handled in 2 separate apps. Whenever I take notes, at least one task is the result.
