Deleting blank notes

I have found it very easy to create blank notes accidentally, but it is a bit of a hassle to delete it. Consider this workflow...

  1. Finish typing one note (keyboard is displayed)
  2. I add another note by clicking the note button or double-enter'ing
  3. I decide I either don't want the type of note that is created or I don't want the newly created note at all
  4. I try to swipe the note to the slider, but that just hides the keyboard
  5. I then have to swipe the blank note again, click the slider, click Delete Notes and then have to confirm the delete

That is five actions simply to delete a blank note. I propose this method be added...
1. Finish typing one note (keyboard is displayed)
2. I add another note by clicking the note button or double-tapping the enter key
3. I want the note gone, so I double-tap the backspace key.
4. Because the note has no content, the function simply deletes the note and switches the focus to the note above it with keyboard still displayed, so I can continue editing the note I had previously left or I can add the correct new note type.
5. This time, the note is deleted with one intuitive double-tap action.

BTW, thanks for creating this app. I have been using it for a few days now and find it is really helping me organize my projects.

    I agree with this. Perhaps also consider this:

    When a note is created, but no text is added before the user moves to a different element- delete the note. I.e blank notes are removed automatically.
