thumbapps.org QOwnNotes Portable, plain-text file notepad with markdown support and ownCloud integration!
"I've been extensively researching Markdown editors with live preview and export to a formatted file such as PDF. One of the finalists is QOwnNotes. It definitely feels like a far better alternative to the likes of Haroopad." —geckolinux (a user), 22/06/2016)
"What comes after Evernote? ... The best part might be that QOwnNotes has an Evernote enex file import tool. ...my data has been liberated from Evernote and saved in an easily accessible format. ... My initial impression of the interface was that it was somehow plain and cluttered all at once – but, I ended up being impressed by its simplicity and the options for customizing." —

"While most of this is easy to use, QOwnNotes is really aimed at expert users who like to take full control over their software, so it’s no surprise that there’s a huge amount of configurability." —Mike Williams, betanews.com (Dec 12, 2016)
QOwnNotes is a plain-text file notepad with markdown support and todo list manager.
