Create notes on Android and PC with OpenTodoList

In the market there are numerous programs to compose notes, whether plans, tasks, scripts or even brainstorming ideas. Personally I can not run out of a notes app. Some prefer the Evernote, Google Keep or Simplenote, all are great alternatives, but today I will present a new option. opentodolist-evernote-google-keep-simplenote-flatpak-flathub-snap-snapcraft-appimage-windows-mac-android-apk-free-software-notes-to-list

OpenTodoList is free software written in Qt and using QML in its graphical interface. It has versions for Windows, Linux and macOS, as well as a mobile version for the little green robot, Android.

Perhaps the application is not so powerful when compared to some of the more popular tools mentioned above. However, if privacy comes first, the app can be very interesting. I say this because your data will not be stored on any third party server. On the contrary, your notes will only be synchronized with some web service by setting it up in OpenTodoList.


Interestingly this is their greatest triumph and failure, depending on the type of user. The program makes it possible to create notes in a local repository, either on your computer or smartphone. However, to synchronize with the required cloud is a NextCloud or ownCloud server (WebDAV servers can also be configured in the application).

The library (the local repository with your notes) is nothing but a directory where all the items are. This allows you to use a third party service such as a GDrive, Dropbox, or whatever. To sync your information.

The simple logic is to save to a synchronized folder and on another device to point your library to the same synchronized folder. Not one of the best and most elegant solutions, but you can get around this shortcoming of the app.
