After downloading the app and transferring all my notes from the apple "notes" app, I immediately noticed how long it always took for the notes app to open. It's the longest delay for an app to open that I've ever experienced. Then, after a couple of weeks of use, I noticed when I opened the app that it would appear as if I had no notes at all. I reloaded it and the notes all pulled up. However, the next time I opened the app and it appeared as if there were no notes, they weren't appearing no matter what I did (reloading, exiting out of the app and opening again). So, I went to options to download one of the backups. Then it took forever, the app was glitching and when I was able to open it again there were two copies of each one of my notes (it finally loaded my original content and added the backup content I downloaded). I went and clicked on every extra copy and hit delete. It would then just freeze, and do nothing. Eventually I had to delete each extra copy one by one and wait extra long for notes that had more content (I guess this is understandable). I got this app because I wanted something that synced with my Apple Watch and was able to have multiple folders within folders. However, I'm highly considering just switching back to notes and deleting this app that I paid for. Not only because of the slowness and the glitches but also because it's taking up SO much memory space on my phone.

so far, so good...


i got this as a replacement to apple’s note (on the mac AND the phone). had some sync issues with apple’s apps. but mostly, wanted my notes alphabetized, an option apple (for some bizarre reason) does not offer. i tried a few other apps, then went with this. i like it a lot: it syncs quickly (thru icloud drive), and works well. notes stay in place (instead of jumping around every time i make an edit). a great find, and recommended.



Saw there was an update on iTunes for Purple Notes. I tried the app in the past with disappointing results. It didn't have the feature I needed. I downloaded the update and was surprised when I was charged $2.99! I called Pay Pal and demanded a reversal of charges.
