Notenik has its own custom URL scheme, which can be invoked by other apps as a means of integrating Notenik with these other applications.

Note that URLs must in general be percent encoded. The most common encoding is done by replacing each space with %20.

Add

Following is a sample URL:

notenik://add?shortcut=todo&title=Pick%20up%20milk&body=You%20gotta
