Notes for Mobile may be a simple note-taking app, but it ticks a lot of the right check boxes. Browser-based? Check. Mobile-friendly? Check. Support for Markdown? Check. Easy to deploy? Check.

Let's start with the latter. To deploy Notes for Mobile on your own machine, clone the project's GitHub repository, switch to the resulting directory and run the python -m SimpleHTTPSever command. Point then the browser to (replace with the actual IP address of the machine running Notes for Mobile) to access the app.

As the name suggests, the app is designed to work with mobile devices, so it makes a perfect note-taking companion for your smartphone or tablet. The app supports most Markdown formatting options, so you can add a dash of text styling to your notes. Using Notes for Mobile couldn't be easier. Click on any existing note to open it for editing, or press the Add Note button to create a new note. Once you're done editing the note, press Done. And you can remove the currently edited note using the Remove button.

While Notes for Mobile is a web-based app, it doesn't have any access control mechanism, which means that it's a strictly single-user app that you might want to run on a local network only.
