Ratings and Reviews

Just enough features!


Needed a simple note taker that didn’t have a huge learning curve and this app fit the bill. Very intuitive interface with just enough options. I love that it doesn’t have tons of bells and whistles. In my experience apps that try to do it all are so cumbersome that I end up not using them. Purple Notes, on the other hand doesn’t do a million things but what it does do, it does incredibly well. I’ve only had it a few day but already find myself using it to keep track of all kiinds of things. For instance, I have started a new eating plan and this is the perfect way to keep track of my progress on a daily basis. My only complaint so far is that it does not appear to be syncing with my iPad but have written to support and hopefully we can resolve that soon.

No Manual Sort


Bought. Realized I couldn’t sort notes manually. Cursed the developer.

Does not sync regularly


DO NOT FOLLOW the instructions on the web page to get syncing to work. He doesn’t tell you, but if you have wasted time working through all the suggestions and get to the one about doing a reset in iOS, you will loose all your passwords. I have wasted more time trying to get syncing to work between my Mac and my iPhone than this program will EVER save.
