    I love just how simple it is to setup. Works straight outta the box. Minimal, clean, and actually distraction-free.


    Would love to host a blog using Notepin though.

Hey ProductHunt! 👋 Notepin is the first web app of mine as part of a 6 Web Apps in 12 Months challenge (inspired by @levelsio). A problem with the majority of note-taking apps out there are that they require excessive effort to get going, including email verifications and passwords, and can be hard to maintain when your notebook gets too big. I tried to fix that by simplifying the process of getting to the note-taking stage. It is a minimalist note-taking app that lets anyone create their own notebook in less than a second - without having to sign up. Each notebook has its own custom URL so you can access it from any device. You can create as many as you want for different themes or share a collaborative notebook with others. It is extremely lightweight and features a beautiful editor to help you write in a distraction-free environment. I would love to hear your thoughts on it!

Target thinkers! Super possession. Quality of the product correlates with its simplicity, just like any real notebook.

Notepin is the simplest way I've come across to maintain notebooks online. I've been working with @leafbomb from the past few days and just love the simplicity of his work, he's just 17!

Nice work. I would start using this for sure if you had the ability to create bulleted/numbered lists.

Looks cool! Just wondering how you guys differentiate with Bold's IO and Telegram's Telegraph?

Hi @mynhpark, With Telegraph, you're limited to creating single notes on separate, unmemorable URLs. Eventually the user will forget their post ever existed. IO is quite similar to Telegraph though you have an option to create an account with them and store all of your notes there. Notepin goes for a different approach as I've tried to remove all those constraints by allowing you to create a whole notebook with as many notes as you like. You can customise the URL to create a more memorable link and access it anywhere, without having to go through a Sign In form or try to remember that long URL.
