Bug Description

It will be wonderful if RedNote can support the following feature :

Click on tray icon,
Open a small notification box to right bottom
Enter text quickly.
Add any tags at the end of the text [Eg: Met my old friend in the local train !! Whatta pleasant surprise! #new #tag #auto #tags]
Hit enter.
Update saved to journal in Today page with the corresponding tags.

Advantage :

It can serve as a personal diary!
It helps everyone by stopping them from posting personal/private info openly on social networking sites in a spur of anger or joy.
It helps you express and save your short and spontaneous feelings quickly so that you can review them later.
At a later time you can search or produce a report showing which things bother you more frequently over various periods of time. This can be done based on the hash tags.
It will be an awesome personal diary and helps you introspect perfectly with no pain and doubts!!

A lock with password can be an additional feature to protect privacy.

Please consider including this :)

Thank you.
Aditya Kappagantula.

Additionally, if a template with a certain name exists (e.g. QuickEntry), then that template should be used to format the information as it is appended to Today's page. For example, if QuickEntry is defined as such:

====================
=== ${title} ===
${text}

Then typing in, "Heinlein Quote: There ain't no such thing as a Free lunch! #tanstaafl" would be appended as thus:

====================
=== Heinlein Quote ===
There ain't no such thing as a Free lunch! #tanstaafl

You could either always parse on certain predefined separators (colon, semicolon, vertical-bar) or allow them to be configured. Also, instead of calling the fields ${title} and ${text}, they could just be numbered: ${1}, ${2}, ${3}.

====================
=== ${1} ===
${2}
- ${3}
- ${4}

So, "Shopping List;Hardware Store;nuts;bolts" becomes:

====================
=== Shopping List ===
Hardware Store
- nuts
- bolts

and, "Heinlein Quote: There ain't no such thing as a Free lunch! #tanstaafl" would be:

====================
=== Heinlein Quote ===
There ain't no such thing as a Free lunch! #tanstaafl
