Absolutely perfect

Kamal Vyas

I have been using Evernote always and have been greatly liking that. In the meantime it became paid and with free app I could just use two devices.
This app I learn about through google search and I am surprisingly delighted using this. This works fine across platforms and very quick and efficient .
I believe this is the best free substitute of Evernote, though I believe it will become paid very soon. Only wish that the price of usage must be moderate and not very high that we have to look for alternatives again.

Excellent app

This has become my primary notes taking app, everything just works.

I have one feature request though, give us the ability to view markdown by default after opening a note, basically reverse of what happens currently. If I want to edit it I’ll swipe left and edit the file and next time when I open it, I should be able to view markdown.

Elegant and efficient


Simplenote has become my absolute favourite software lately. It provides a full screen canvas to jot down thoughts and work through ideas - which can sometimes prove quite life-changing. The dark theme makes it very easy on the eyes. Tagging and search options are super efficient. Syncs PC to iOS seamlessly. Lightweight to boot :)
