Handy & useful

It’s quick, it’s simple, and it works. I’m amazed at some of the negative reviews. I am able to cut-n-paste into this app easily. Copy, open app, click plus sign (+) to create a note, and then paste. Done. Works every time. Yes, the interface is minimalistic. It’s a notepad. How “artful” is a pad of paper? How much “intuition” does one need to work a notepad? It works, and that’s all I ask in a note app.

Terrification application. I’m always on the hunt for the ideal, uncomplicated, way of ‘jotting down’ my immediate thoughts or issues without opening separate applications, logging in, and on and on. While I’m still a comparatively new user, I can see that one day NotesTab and I will be old friends.


I usually keep paper and pen handy when I am on line so I can list the tasks that I want to complete later. Since I started using notes 2 weeks ago, I put away the paper. I use it just like I did the pen and paper. It is just as easy and I don't have to worry about losing it. As soon as I log on, it pops up making it easy to plan my day. I may give it 5 stars after I use it more.
