Great little app - looks good and works well

I've been using the previous version on 10.6.8 and I've just upgraded to v1.3.3. It works well and looks good - much better than Apple's own Notes. Syncing worked without a flaw.

I like the fact that it automatically removes formatting - so I can copy and past bits from websites without having to deal with the formatting (especially background colours). I've previously used it only as a scratchpad but the tag search means I may start using it as a more general notetaking app.

Only one complaint - I downloaded the demo version which has got to be the most annoying and intrusive I've ever come across: a nag every 30 minutes which forces you to either go to the AppStore or shut down the app and reopen. Surely this is over the top for a 15-day time-limited demo. A reminder screen is fair enough but the developer is in danger of alienating potential customers.

Excellent App!

I used to keep hundreds of text notes and this app has been fantastic and importing them and keeping the folder structure and for that I give it four stars, it works smoothly and does exactly what is says it will do with no fuss. Nice, minimal and clean. Well done. To complete it’s perfection I would really like some way to colour headings or sections of text. I look forward to future updates!

Great simple note app

Just gets out of the way to let you do what you want
