Privacy Friendly Notes App

Privacy Friendly Notes allows you to take and manage notes on Android devices. It belongs to the Privacy Friendly Apps group.

The following features are included in Privacy Friendly Notes:

  • Four types of notes
    • Simple text notes
    • Checklist notes
    • Audio notes
    • Sketchnotes
  • The notes can be grouped into categories, reminders can be assigned to notes and the notes can be exported to the device storage.

In the following points the Privacy Friendly Notes-app differs from other similar apps:

  1. Minimal amount of permissions
    • The permission "RECORD_AUDIO" (Category "Mikrofon") is required to record audio notes. In case this permission is not granted by the user (in Android versions higher than 6) it will not be possible to record audio notes.
    • "WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" (Category "Speicher") is used to export notes to the device storage. In case this permission is not granted by the user (in Android versions higher than 6) it will not be possible to export notes.
    • Beside the permissions above the permission "RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED" (Category "Normal/non-critical") is required to reschedule notifications after a reboot. This permission cannot be modified by the user.
  2. No advertisement
    Many other free apps in the Google Play Store dazzle annoying advertising which also shortens battery life.

We offer several ways to download the app:
