I need a notes application that allows very quick input of text, to create a new note.

  • It could work either through a global keyboard shortcut that immediately takes you to a new note input screen,
  • or via integration with any keystroke launcher(Keypirinha, Wox, Launchy),
  • or through a command line tool maybe.

Open source and free software would be nice but not necessary. Primary platforms required are Windows 10 and Android, Linux, MacOS and iOS are optional.

I am comfortable with scripting or coding a solution that takes advantage of existing notes apps like Evernote, Keep, SimpleNote etc.

For example, an AutoHotKey script that launches a text box when a global keyboard shortcut is pressed and then once you type in the textbox and click enter a new note automatically gets created in the notes application with the text you just typed.
