Jot is the no-fuss way to take notes. Our app helps you get all your big ideas and little ‘things to remember’ into a simple, stripped down format. Easy swipe gestures keep your list of notes short and orderly. Remember anything by searching through your full archives. Use quick and easy todo lists, and basic reminders to stay on top of daily life stuff.

Jot leaves out all the fancy, distracting stuff you don’t need: formatting, drawing, tags, categories, shared lists, sync, stickers, etc. It’s just as simple and straightforward as using a piece of paper. Only what you need. No funny stuff.

• Create notes instantly
• No titles or saving
• Distraction free writing
• Quick feed of active notes
• Search through your entire archive
• Customization — turn off spelling, grammar helpers
• Get data out by swipe to copy

How do I delete notes?


Cool app but I can't figure out how to delete notes????

Developer Response

Hi @shley12. Deleting notes is a little bit hidden. If you first archive a note, then look at the archives (by tapping in the search bar, then selecting "See Just Archives"), the swipe actions will change to include a trash can. Swipe a note to the left, tap the trash can, and it's gone for good.

Promising, but with Rough Edges


I love the premise of this app — simple, fast note taking. But a number of rough edges make it a bit of a pain to use.

First, the Archive, etc. confirmation dialog is a nice idea, but it appears and disappears so quickly that it’s basically impossible to interact with it. I tried touching down on the dialog and leaving my finger there in the hopes it would stay until I lifted my finger, but it made no difference. Honestly, I would prefer a less intrusive, long-lasting dialog (perhaps a little bar that sits at the bottom of the screen for a moment?).

Second, the dialog doesn’t always reflect what you just did. For instance, if you go to an archived note and I unarchive it, the dialog says “Archived” rather than “Unarchived”.

Third, several of the animations are rough: for instance, archiving the note causes it to jitter off the screen and then the item abruptly disappears from the list.

Fourth, I was a bit shocked that you couldn’t reorder notes. Seems like an easy win that doesn’t complicate the app nor tarnish its core premise — especially in light of iOS 11’s addition of drag and drop.

Finally, in a particularly ironic move, tapping the “Feedback” button in Settings causes the app to crash for me. I’m guessing this is because it tries to open Mail, and I don’t have the Mail app configured.

Overall, I’d love to love this app, but when the entire premise is a paid app that does one thing beautifully, it needs to do that one thing with more polish than this app currently exhibits.

Hi mmccroskey. Thanks so much for this feedback! I want you to know that we hear you, and we're not done polishing. The next release will certainly fix that unfortunate feedback crash, but in the meantime, we're happy to chat at hello@gogetjot.com :)
