Simple and reliable… great app
This has been a great app. Very simple to use. Very easy to sync notes between devices. Very reliable (notes are not lost during sync process). Data is stored on your device, not a cloud that requires an internet connection.
I used this app to accumulate notes/plans for my 10 day trip through Europe. I wanted notes on: important phone numbers and addresses (yes, they’re in “contacts”, but some names I’d forget, like Lenka is the name of our tour guide in Prague), names of foods that I wanted to stay away from, special places that I wanted to visit in each city, who to contact if I lose credit cards, my glasses prescription, beers i want to try, health insurance info, passport numbers, etc.
I needed to make sure that my notes weren’t stored on a cloud (unless I wanted it). I wasn’t sure if I was going to have data service of any type in Europe, so I needed my notes with me... on my device. Yup, I can kill the internet connection, recycle power on my iphone and I have my notes... great.
Once, while I was learning edit/select/copy/paste on my iphone I accidentally deleted a big note. It was nice to discover that that little info icon (“i” in a circle) takes you to a screen where you can see your edit history... so, I didn’t lose my note.
You can’t insert pictures (I don’t think), or use fancy formatting, but IMHO, that keeps the UI really simple so the app is a joy to use. So, given its reliability and ease of use... it’s a great app!
I'm here, quite simply, because I've been using the Notes app that came with my iPhone all the time but got frustrated with not having a good way to transfer what I was writing to my laptop. I'm hoping SimpleNotes will work out better. So far it has what I was looking for (automatically synchs with laptop, one-touch new "document"), and a little extra (tags, word count.) I'm currently slightly annoyed at the font, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. I write a lot, so having a good way to get my thoughts down quickly and get back to them easily is very important to me.
I wish there was a way to do italics and color, but I also want a very simple design so I realize there's an intrinsic conflict there. Also, and this is truly nitpicking, the logo is annoyingly similar to Skype's.
Overall, I like the product very much. Thank you.
A little too simple sometimes
I'm using Simplenote on my iPad so I can have my book in Scrivener available to edit and write when I'm on the go. It does sync fairly intelligently, but formatting can get lost if you decide not to sync a file then change your mind later. The only thing that really annoys me is the inability to keep separate titling systems between Scrivener and Simplenote. I have to keep adding back my numbering so I can see everything in order on Simplenote, even though I tell it to leave the titles alone. That wouldn't be such a bad thing and I would just sync in small batches if I didn't know I would also then have to re-fix my formatting on Scrivener for any files I temporarily didn't sync. This might be the best option, but I'm looking into alternatives as we speak because that is really annoying...
