One of the most valuable apps I own!

I use this app literally every day, several times a day. It’s simple, and does exactly what it’s supposed to do. It’s my main note/text editor. I love how it just gets out of your way when you change to another app, but when I want it to stay on top I can just use the anchor icon and it will stay open and on top of other apps. I use the star icon for things I want to appear at the top for quick access, but the search function works beautifully to find something quickly. I use it for work, I use it for research, I use it for lists, I use it for ideas and brainstorming. I listen to a lot of interviews and MiniNotetab Pro makes it so easy to take notes. I tried a lot of other note taking apps, and list making apps, productivity apps for notes, lists and organizing… nothing else I found comes close to this. It’s brilliant! One of the best apps in the app store. Kudos to the developers, they did a great job with both usability and functionality.

Good app that will get better

Solid app, works well. It does not have all the capabilities of Apple Notes, but it has one that make it worth every penny: you can sync your notes to your iPad, iPhone, or iPod (See note below) without having them erased from your device if you happen not to be connected to the cloud. With MiniNote, your data stays on your devices, connected or not. Whether your data is only in the cloud, or not, should be your decision, no one else’s.

The only things this app really needs is the ability to change the order of notes in the lists, and more than one way to group notes. The developers have told me both are planned features. When these features are implemented, it will be a perfect app, and my rating will go up to 5 stars.

What about Apple Watch?

There are many better note-taking apps out there, some even free, that sync across all Apple devices. This app noticebly neglects the Apple Watch which makes it useless to me, especially since other note-taking apps work across all Apple devices. This app would be okay if they didn’t neglect the Watch, but then it would only just be ‘okay' and not really stand out against the compition, especially at this price. Right now, however, this app doesn’t even stand-in with the crowded note-taking space specifically because of the lack of support for Apple Watch. Save your money and look at the much better apps that sync across all Apple devices, including the watch.
