Markor does not use your internet connection unless external resources (e.g. display image by URL) are referenced in user generated content. The app is working completly offline, no internet connection required! No personal data will be requested or shared with the author or third parties (i.e. calendar or contacts). Files can be shared to other apps from inside the app by pressing the share button. Files are stored locally in a user selectable folder, defaulting to the device public documents folder.

Android Permissions

    In user generated content data can be loaded from the internet.

    Markor allows to attach voice notes to the text. The permission is only used when clicking the "attach audio" button/menu to start the audio record dialog. Audio recording is always started and stopped by the user (button press).
