Thee BEST simple note app


The name says it all. It’s simply the best simple not app. Evernote was far too complicated as was every other app I’ve tried. AND SIMPLENOTE IS FREE!!! The iOS app has a passcode feature which is perfect. It syncs with the Mac version although I cannot find the passcode feature on the Mac version. Please keep simplenote simple.

Why ugly update?


The old design was perfect. The font colours were matching (the new white font sticks out too much). The old placement of the search and other icons was much more simplistic and clean. This new update is so ugly. I think I might be switching to another platform if I find something cleaner :(

New one: -1 real star and -1 fictional star.


Used to be a 6/5 for notes on MacOS.
Really loved the previous minimal design.
New design is more cohesive I suppose.
Best note app around, just even better previous to the fairly recent visual update.
