Cautionary Notes

I was looking forward to trying out what appeared to be an alternate to Apple Notes for several reasons including it had the plain white background I sought, claimed ease of accessing notes (“copying” & “sharing” to me infers the individual notes are accessible within the Finder), and not having to deal with additional security breaches by being able to store my note files locally.

Unfortunately, aside from the nice white background, it lacked any of the features the description suggests may otherwise distinguish it from Apple’s Notes. There are zero menu options for preferences or settings, and the Support site is even more plain than the app itself. Basic features like spell-check aren’t built in, and from what little information the ‘Support’ site does have, there is no way to save or access your note files locally - only offering the same inaccessible (outside of the App) and therefore inefficient local organization method Note’s does. As for any option to “copy or share notes with ease”, these options were barely visible from within the Mac App along the faded icons near the bottom of the App, and it is only there in the ‘Help’ section that the Settings gear becomes available at the top right where you discover are no exporting options for the notes or alternate regular file sharing format options - Syncing via iCloud only - exactly why I dislike Notes file accessibility options (which I can at least export as PDF but cannot otherwise view locally within the App’s Support folder in the Finder like other note taking apps offer.

Finally, if you manage to find anything on the Support site you should make note of their Privacy (lack thereof) Policy which like everything within the App and Support site, is misleading. A few points you may want to make note of if you value your privacy state:

"When you create an account, we may collect your personal information such as your username, first and last name and email address."
"We may send important or pormotional information about our products."
"We collect your location through GPS, WiFi, or phone network in order to provide our Service.

Know what you’re getting and what you’re not. Aside from the clean white background, without the most basic word processing and file organizational features mention above (i.e. spellcheck, local file access to individual note entries in a universal format via the Finder, settings options, etc.), minimal Support documentation, and changes to the privacy policy, I’m disappointed to say I will be deleting it.
