Customer Reviews

Absolutely simple, exactly what I need.

I used Evernote for a few years, but it was a bit bloated and slow, and I really didn't need or want the formatted text or images that often resulted when I pasted text into my notes. Then I moved to Apple's Notes app, and for a long time, I tolerated its oddities and frustrations on my iPhone, Macs and iCloud. Duplicated notes and syncing issues were annoying and rampant. But when Apple removed the ability to sort notes alphabetically on iOS, I had had enough. My search for an alternative led me to Simplenote about a year ago, and I've never looked back. It's exactly what I need, and has the added benefit of having a Windows app too. Intuitive interface, built-in versioning, and solid as a rock. It still makes me happy every one of the 100+ times a day I use it to quickly jot down a shopping list, recipe, to do, movie to watch, book to read, or random thought. I don't think I've ever loved an app so much. And through Simplenote, I also discovered Simperium. :)

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.


First off, unless an app literally satisfies me in ways that are inappropriate for this review, I don't leave 5 stars. However, this doesn't in any way detract from this app. From the simplicity to the extra functions (isn't that a contradiction?), this app checks just about every box that I could hope for in a writing or note app! I would prefer to see a little more automation/Workflow functionality, but then it wouldn't be the app it is. Great job, ladies and gentlemen (and yes, ladies are just as present in the Dev field today as men)! Keep it up! I'm sure you'll find functionality to add to make this even better, but that's tall order as good as it is now. But after trying every, and I mean EVERY writing app, this is my go to now, and that says a lot!
