I use it all the time

A simple to use, effective, no-frills, multi-platform, multi-user note taking app.
What more can you ask for? Well… a good customer service. A few months ago I had a problem and emailed them. They replayed right away and eventually solved the problem. Good job.


Really is as simple as it claims

This is perfect for multiple devices - though I have not tried it with any Windows OS. If you write something on one device it more or less simultaneously adds it to all other devices whjere you are logged in. And logging in is also simple. Love it.


Love this software

I love simple note, I run it on my Mac, iPhone and at work on a windows PC with the chrome app. It syncs seamlessly between the apps and is a huge help with managing my work and life. I have use it for preparing blog posts etc
