With Quick Note and Live Text, and prior significant enhancements to Apple Notes, AN would be a contender for a great default all encompassing note taking app with deep integration in the OS and across devices if Apple would:
- Add a plain text/markdown editor option
- Add exporting to plain text, markdown and to Word and/or Pages
- Enable bulk export from within the app
- Add backlinking
- Improve the reliability and speed of iCloud syncing
- Add daily notes and calendar integration
For me, this would make Apple Notes nearly the ideal note taking application.
Or, just have a Quick Note feature allowed for third party apps like Obsidian or Craft.
But alas, I know that few, perhaps none, of those features will be added to AN.
One can dream, right?
