Simplenote is an easy way to keep notes, lists, ideas and more. Your notes stay in sync with all your devices for free. Share notes with other users to collaborate on a project together or to access the same list.

The Simplenote experience is all about speed and efficiency. Open it, write some thoughts, and you’re done. As your collection of notes grows, you can search them instantly and keep them organized with tags and pins. Work with other people on the same note by sharing it and publish notes to the web for other people to see.

The best way to learn about Simplenote is to try it. You'll be asked to create an account. This allows your notes to be backed up online and synchronized automatically.

I will cry if this app ever gets discontinued


Have used this app every day for years. Exactly what I want: clean interface, no fuss, able to sort notes by tags, web support so I can add notes when I'm on my laptop and so that I never lose all my notes switching phones / when phone breaks etc. Can handle long notes and a large number of notes no problem. I only wish they did a reminders app too.

Why I live Simplenote!


I love the ease of use of this app. Tap on it and it opens immediately, no setting up, ready for use. There is no learning curve involved in getting notes, thoughts, ideas typed. Leave it aside for a year, come back, the notes are there and go straight into writing again. Brilliant



I use this app daily! Minimalist feel to it, but Im yet to find anything that synchronizes my thoughts, lists, notes and anything else written down as seamlessly between my computer, iPad, and phone. Set it up ages ago and now I dont have to think, it works so well you dont even notice it.
