noteZ is a simple note-taking application for the Sharp Zaurus SL-5500/SL-5000 series of PDAs. It's written in C++ using the Qt widget set. It will work on machines running Trolltech's Qtopia, OPIE and OpenZaurus. noteZ is free software published under the GNU general public license (GPL).

With noteZ, you can take text notes as you would do on a good old notepad. noteZ's main screen will show a list of all notes. The list items will be derived from the first line of each note. If you know the note application of the Psion Series 5, this behaviour will be familiar to you :-)
