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 there 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 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.

Use It Every Day

I've been using Simplenote for a few years and use it pretty much every day. Actually, a better way to say it is that I pretty much use it DOZENS of times every day.

It's very quick and easy to use and the search capabilities make it completely unnecessary to categorize messages. Although, I believe you can tag messages now.

I've been using the iOS version for a very long time. On my iMac, I used Simplenote through notational velocity for a few years but switched over to the official Simplenote app for iMac about six months ago. It works great too.

Some of my use cases:

Manage ideas for home improvements.

Keep track of part numbers for small things like my car headlight lamps that need to be replaced every year or so.

Keep track of dates when I rotated tires on my car. (This way, I know how many miles I have on each tire, which is helpful when I have a flat and need to replace one.)

Maintain a running list of Christmas gift ideas for my relatives.

Hundreds of other things.

Possibly my most valuable app!

I've been using this Simplenote app for several years, syncing to the Notational Velocity app on my Macs. Its beauty is its pure simplicity, and the syncing across all devices is as flawless and non-intrusive as can be. I don't need or desire the plump bells and whistles of some other "notes" apps, such as images, events, contacts, etc., as I handle those needs in other ways. I just need a reliable place to record and store lists and info, some notes small and others quite large, about anything and everything. Any note's info I ever need, no matter where I travel, is always at my fingertips.
