neutriNote

neutriNote is a great open source and free note taking app that supports Markdown, export to PDF or HTML or Markdown, backup and restore, inline images, location, and more! The UI isn't as fancy as some other apps and there's no WYSIWYG editing but this is definitely a top-tier app with some great features.
