Our mobile app for your phone or tablet on iOS or Android is the ultimate mobile companion to grow your knowledge. Some of our favorite features of RemNote for Mobile include:

  • ✈️ Works offline: No annoying loading spinners! Battle-tested syncing engine

  • 🔗 Link your notes: Connect your ideas and grow your knowledge

  • 🧠 Smart flashcards: Create them directly from your notes and learn on the go

  • 📅 Plan your day: Get things done with Daily Documents

  • 💻 Works on all your devices: Pick up on desktop where you left off on mobile

The mobile app includes almost all features of the desktop app, with very few exceptions. If you're not a RemNote Pro user, some Pro features may be completely hidden rather than shown with an option to upgrade, due to app store rules. You also cannot purchase Pro on mobile, but if you purchase it from a web browser or the desktop app, all Pro features will also be available on your mobile devices.

You can download the app from our RemNote Mobile landing page, or search for “RemNote – Notes and Flashcards” in your device's app store.

Tags and References

As usual, you can create

  • references by typing [[ or @

  • tags by typing ##

  • portals by typing ((

You can also use the Slash Menu by typing /, just like on desktop.

Mobile Editor Toolbar

The editor toolbar houses all your features for swift note editing and flashcard creation:

  • Insert (+): flashcards, views, media, and more (see Mobile Slash Menu below for more)

  • Command actions (⌘): move or copy Rems, add powerups, and more (see Mobile Slash Menu below for more)

  • Reference Search: add Rem References (or type [[)

  • Images: insert from your device's image library

  • Flashcards: select a type of flashcard to add, or type >>, <<, <>, and so on like on the desktop app

  • Text Style: add bold, italics, underlines, hyperlinks, and more

  • Indent / Outdent bullet

  • Undo / Redo

  • Change highlight color

  • Add heading

  • Focus on previous or next Rem

Mobile Slash Menu

On mobile, you'll find all insert-like slash menu actions behind the + button in the editor toolbar (appears after you focus on the editor).

All modify-like actions are in the ⌘ button.

Other Mobile features

You can open the iOS quick actions by hard-pressing/tapping on the app icon to quickly jump in to the section of the app you need next.

Documents and Folders

In RemNote a document with documents in it becomes a folder. You can create nested documents via the Rem menu (in the top right):

Or you can create a new folder via the + button:
