Umbrella Note 2 Launch

4 April 2018

Yesterday I launched umbrella note 2.0. And it recieved a great response from the community. The website got 7K vistors in last 6 hrs. It landed on the frontpage of hackernews with more than 60 upvotes. And It stayed on top with more than 150 upvotes on subreddit /r/opensource. Github repo got 45 new followers. 50 new mail subscribers.

So what's next

Currently I lauched it only for linux and windows. But almost half of the visitors were macbook users. So first thing, I will fix the issues with macos and build a installer for the apple users.

Next, I think I'll be building the complete application with react. As of now it's just plain javascript and a little jquery.

The new features that I will be adding now are -

  • 'Medium' like text editor.
  • Dictionary and word suggestor.
  • Auto backups to different locations on users computer. Keeping user data safe is the biggest priority.
  • Passcode.

A lot of people requested for android and ios apps. I will be working on them as soon as possible.

Although I will keep it completely open source and free for almost all of the features. But there will be a pro version.

I want to thank all of you who installed the application and provided valuable feedback.

Thank you.
