Customer Reviews

This developer “gets it”!

Open standards. Open formats. Keep It Simple Sam. I have every one of this developers’ products and couldn’t be happier.

I sync all my notes on my Synology DiskStation. I don’t use “the cloud”. Everything works flawlessly. Plus, I have the peace of mind knowing that all my data is in an easy to migrate format (markdown usually) and not housed in some proprietary database “locking me in” to a specific Company or software package.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! (Danke schön!)
