Easy to Use & Gets the Job Done

If you've got notes to organize no other app makes it quite as easy as Simplenote. It's SIMPLE, that's the whole point. You've got 30 notebooks filled with writing, research, random thoughts, tweets you forgot to Twitter about, at least the titles to 10 amazing books you may never remember even exist if you don't get your notes organized and fast. You don't have time to search the App Store eight hours a day and test 15 apps a week let alone learn how to work some complicated notes app just so you can hopefully for ONCE IN YOUR LIFE get your never ending writing organized. You could be sitting on the next big novel or movie or song or tweet, you don't know and you may never unless you give Simplenote a try. It's simple, easy to use, click the + button, write words, tag everything, pin your favorite notes, make notes as long as you want, write on your iPad, iPod, iPhone & Dell Computer all at the same time.. Simplenote does not even gaf, it'll keep up and make sure all your notes are always synced. Organize your notes first, then go find some super fancy app with too many options to screw it all up digitally. It's cool tho, writing with an awesome pen is pretty revolutionary. Try it sometime & then organize your notes quickly with Simplenote. I love this app, thanks guys!!

Hard to beat for simplicity, utility

I admire Simplenote for a lot more than simply living up to its name (which it does.) It is more full-featured than the built in iOS Notes app, but hands down the features it pulls in are ones I find myself incredibly thankful for on a regular basis, namely the ability to tag notes and see past revisions. It also quite simply works better. Cloud syncing has never been anything less than seamless, something I cannot say about many apps... If you need an app for take notes that has a clean aesthetic and lacks the often extraneous and distracting features of several other notable competitors (that was a joke, hahahaHAHA, c'mon people...), you really can't go wrong here. Definitely recommend it. (@ the developers: one feature I would really love to see would be the ability to see both when a note was created and last modified. Adding that in just might take it to perfection. ;)

Of all the notes apps...

This is the one I finally settled on. The simple interface is really my favorite part. But it also has some powerful features that I love. Being about to pin a frequently used note to the tope of the list is really great. Tags are super functional. Rather than folders, you can tag a note for better organization. It syncs fast and reliably across my iPhone, iPad and Mac.

The only feature I would like to see is a two column view for the iPad in landscape. In other words, when the iPad is in landscape, have my list of notes on the left while the note I'm working with is on the right.

Otherwise, this is my favorite notes apps out there. Evernote still is used for more complex formatting and such but for daily notes, quick info, etc. this is my go-to.
