MedleyText Note-Taking App
Written by Martins D. Okoi

We have written on a couple of note-taking apps for developers before and one such app is Boostnote. Today, we have another note-taking app that is just as good and it goes by the name Medleytext.

Medleytext is a free and open-source cross-platform note-taking application with functions aimed at developers. It features support for a handful of languages including Markdown, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
