μPad (MicroPad) is open source and free. A powerful note-taking app that helps you organise + take notes without restrictions.A distinctive feature of MicroPad (µpad) is the use of Infinite Canvas, which removes the vertical constraint from the workspace. The authors of the project believe that it is more convenient to make notes on the Board than on a lined sheet of paper.
Using the Infinite Сanvas to organize your notes allows you to structure your thoughts and ideas more visually. Each note (Notepad) can contain an unlimited number of sections, with notes and subsections. This allows you to use a Notepad that includes everything from writing a recipe to planning the development of an application.
μPad allows you to create text notes and notes with Markdown-formatting, notes with images, sketches (marker recording), graphs and charts, you can add files of any format to the note, voice recording (for example from a laptop microphone), as well As a Jupyter Notebook file (*.ipynb), which may include the outputs and inputs of calculations, mathematics, and explanatory text.
You can add tags to each entry, as well as specify a run time, allowing MicroPad to link notes, including those from different sections, and track their due dates. In the quick overview panel will be timely displayed notification of the approaching deadline, supported search by notes.
SmartPad has a built-in synchronization function with its own cloud service (paid), which supports server-side or client-side encryption to increase privacy, as well as to organize joint work on a document (group project). You can easily use third-party applications to encrypt and synchronize with the cloud service.
MicroPad can work in windowed and full-screen mode, supports changing the theme (five themes are available), it is possible to import notes from the archive and individual Markdown-documents, you can export records to a ZIP archive containing NPX (*.npx) or Markdown (*md) files, management is focused on the use of the mouse.
Install as usual, Enjoy!
May the Force be with you,
