Customer Reviews

This app is an essential part of my life

I tried SimpleNote shortly after I got my iPhone 3G and it has been an essential part of my personal productivity world ever since.

The app has been through a few revisions and all of them have been great. They stick to the core functionality and make sure it is done well. All the other notes apps out they keep adding additional features until they are bloated, slow and complicated. They try to be everything to everyone and end up being mediocre at everything. In contrast, SimpleNote sticks to it's core purpose and does not compromise it with additional bloat. I've never encountered an app that has stayed so good for so long.

It's simple, reliable, intuitive, and practical. As far as essential phone functionality, it ranks up there with phone calls, texts and email (probably higher than email).

If you have a Windows PC, install ResophNotes and synchronize it with your SimpleNote account. It's a great experience.

I like this app so much that I've tried to give them money, but they won't take it so I'm writing this review instead.

I wish more people would make apps/services like SimpleNote.

Was great, but now has security flaws!

This has been a notes app of mine for a very long time. It has worked wonderfully four years. Unfortunately, ever since I updated to iOS 10 the passcode security feature on this app has been working poorly. In the past week or so, the passcode requirement has shut itself off on its own, the fingerprint authentication turned itself from on to off on its own and there have been a number of times when, even with the passcode feature activated, you can see my notes after switching from the notes app to a Nother happened in the back. Sometimes you can see the note for only a second or two but other times it is visible in definitely.

Please fix the security flaws so that this app can go back to being a 5-star app. Thank you!

Family Functionality

A great App for our family. By buying/installing on each of our phones, my wife and I always have a COMMON "pickup"list (groceries, hardware, etc.)

All it takes to do this is to create a single account (same ID, same password) and then use this single account on both phones. Then when one of us adds an item (like milk) it shows up instantly on BOTH of our phones. When we make the purchase, we simply delete the entry and it disappears from both phones.

Simple... but so wonderful. Worth every penny.
