See the big picture

Traditional notes apps separate your notes into silos accessed by tags and search terms. But Milanote is different. You can arrange your notes side by side on an infinite canvas to start seeing patterns and connections.

  • Map out the sections of a project, a piece of writing or an argument by arranging your ideas side by side.
  • Use lines and colours to add another layer of meaning.

Save ideas and inspiration from around the web

Install the Milanote Web Clipper to instantly save text, images, videos or links to your boards from any website you visit. The one-click interface lets you save inspiration in seconds.

  • Users of the Milanote Web Clipper have rated it 4.8 out of 5 stars on the Google Chrome store.

More than just a notes app

Milanote lets you save much more than just notes. You can upload files, track to-do lists and tasks, save images, videos and much more. All of your content can live in one secure place, side by side.

  • Arrange your notes side by side with images, links and more.
  • Track your tasks with integrated to-do lists.
  • Upload any image to your boards. Milanote supports all common image formats, including JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG and many more.
  • Drag files into your browser to upload them.

Just enough formatting

Milanote's simple text editor lets you add headings, lists and other simple formatting without overwhelming you with complex options. This means that instead of getting distracted by choosing from dozens of fonts, you can focus on your note taking and relax knowing that everything will look beautiful by default.

  • Simple keyboard shortcuts let you format text instantly.
  • Any Markdown you use is instantly transformed into beautifully formatted rich text.

Adapts to your writing—from quick notes to long form writing

Some notes apps are great for quick ideas. Others work well when you're writing longer documents. But only Milanote's interface adapts seamlessly as your ideas grow over time.

  • Notes automatically expand as you type.
  • Manually resize any note to any size.
  • Convert to long form when you need to write a more traditional document.
