Notepad "Boostnote" which can be written with Markdown is very useful

What's Markdown?

Markdown is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax. It is designed so that it can be converted to HTML and many other formats using a tool by the same name.[8] Markdown is often used to format readme files, for writing messages in online discussion forums, and to create rich text using a plain text editor. As the initial description of Markdown contained ambiguities and unanswered questions, many implementations and extensions of Markdown appeared over the years to answer these issues.

Markdown is mainly used as a means to easily write HTML.
Medium also has Markdown notation.
For example, if you want to bold some parts of text, write

<strong> bold </ strong>

for HTML,

** bold **

for Markdown.

Boostnote is a software that can write notes using such Markdown.

Features of Boostnote

Sharing function via DropBox

Boostnote allows you to share notes with other devices via online storage DropBox.

However, to use this function, I regret that I have to install "DropBox" on my computer.

Todo list is easy to make & easy to use

In Boostnote you can create a checkbox by writing "- [ ]" to create a Todo list.

In addition, a gauge of the completion rate is also generated in the created ToDo list, and you can confirm at a glance how long the task is completed now.




You can print out the notes directly from Boostnote.

Markdown is easy to write even on a smart tablet!

Both the Android version and the iOS version, Markdown input assist bar added on the keyboard.
It makes easy to write Markdown on the smart tablet.

Bad feature

Hard to share with others
Since sharing is via DropBox, it is inconvenient when you want to share notes with others.

Boostnote is too convenient.

This is serious. I can't leave.

Overall rating - ★★★★★

Boostnote was originally a "memopad made for programmers", which is not introduced here, but it also allows you to write down the source-code.
I introduced Boostnote as an ordinary Notepad because it has enough functions.
