Warning: Xournal++ Mobile is currently in early development and not yet stable. Use with caution!
Download From Google Play Store
A port of the main features of Xournal++ to various Flutter platforms like Android, iOS and the Web.
Try it out
Mission completed: We can now render strokes, images and text and LaTeX!. We thereby support the full
.xopp file format. 🎉
sudo snap install xournalpp-mobile
Visible parts already working:
- Read the document title
- Read and display the number of pages
- Create thumbnails of the pages for the navigation bar
- Smooth fade in after thumbnail rendering
- Render images on the canvas
- Render text on the canvas
- Recent files list
- Whiteout eraser
- Basic editing
- Immense memory consumption: If you open immense files, you get immense memory consumption. That’s logic. Usually, Xournal++ Mobile takes twice the file size plus around 50MB for itself.
- But why does it take twice the memory?: No idea.
- The snap does not start on Linux when using wayland: Please set the environment variable
DISABLE_WAYLAND=1before you start Xournal++ Mobile.

flutter channel beta flutter upgrade flutter config --enable-web flutter run -d web --release # unfortunately, the debug flavour will result an empty screen
Linux is perfectly supported by Xournal++ Mobile and you can get prebuild binaries above or install from Snap Store.
Windows is supported and tested too, but there are unfortunately no prebuilt binaries available. Execute the following commands to build them yourself.
If you want to test for Linux, Windows or macOS, please run:
flutter channel master flutter upgrade flutter config --enable-linux-desktop # or --enable-macos-desktop or --enable-windows-desktop flutter run -d linux # or macos or windows
