** As FEATURED by Apple in “New Apps We Love” **

This is a different kind of notes app. Simpler. Smarter. Better.

You can type #hashtags into your notes to organize them.

#hashtags link all the tagged notes together—tap on any to see them all.

We'll find any phone numbers, email addresses, or links in your notes, too, and you can tap on those to call, email, or go to the web.

A dash and then a space makes a list—you can tap the dash later to cross things off.

Attach #photos of things you’d like to remember—receipts, screenshots of directions, shoes in a shoe store. Whatever makes sense for you. Tap little photos to make ‘em bigger. Swipe down on big photos to make ‘em smaller.

We hope this app helps you capture the thoughts that are important to you—thank you so much for giving it a try.

What's New

Version 0.8.12

without Apple Pencil support why bother?


When it comes to taking notes, the whole thing is about being quick and easy (convenient). Otherwise, why not use one of the many word processing or text editing apps? There are plenty that allow hashtags, searching and more. Problem is, they’re not fast and convenient.
Then there’s the brilliance of Apple Pencil and it’s handwriting features. There are apps like GoodNotes, Notability, Note Shelf and more that utilize Apple Pencil and hand writing but again, these are major apps that must be launched and navigated. Good for serious writing but not for jotting quick notes.
I hoped this would be the missing link. It’s not. Hashtags and searching are a nice addition but without Apple Pencil integration, it’s not convenient to me. If you don’t care about that, you will probably like this app. The description is accurate.

This app is life!


I am busy running my medical billing business from home while taking care of my toddler and normal wife/ mom tasks. Efficiency and organization are key. This app allows me to quickly jot down to a do list for both personal and professional tasks. I can keep separate lists and easily check on things when they are done. I love that I can go back and still see what I have accomplished even when I marked as complete. That is an especially handy feature for office meetings! Another thing that I love is the hashtags feature! I will never be without this app!! It's all love here!! ❤️

Would Have Given 5 Stars But...


Hands down, BetterNotes is an utterly amazing app. I have downloaded pretty much every reminder/note taking app out there and this one has them all beat. You can take as many notes as you want and you can remind yourself about the note. Once the reminder goes off, you can choose to Snooze it or be reminded for another day. My only peeve about this app is that if I delete a reminder before I am actually reminded about it (due to it already being completed, no longer needing to be reminded, etc.), it will still remind me of this note! When I go into the app, the note is nowhere to be found. PLEASE FIX!!
