This is the reminder app that the iPhone should have


I absolutely love this app. It does and has everything I would want a note taker or a writing app to have. I can:

1. change the font,
2. add a variety of different bullets,
3. bold the font,
4. change the 'to do' to red to indicate it’s a priority item and then cross it off when completed.

To delete an items that’s been crossed off as completed, you just pull the screen down or click delete.

In additional they have an experimental section for things they are trying out. You can check out the possible new features and tell them what you think about adding it to the next version. Have you ever had to space over to indent a paragraph, not with this app. It’s part of the experimental group and I hope becomes a permanent feature.

You can add an alarm, count the number of words and too many other things to mention. Best of all, it’s functional just as is. And if you want to update, the price isn’t too much for all you get. Try it out, I don’t think you’ll be sorry.

6/17 - still love it.

Now that I got it to sync.....


I like it..and have used it for quite awhile, but I am disappointed with their customer support. I have written to them twice in the past few months and have not received an answer. I paid for the premium edition and while the data syncs between my iPad and iPhone, the iPad edition is the basic one. I have deleted it and re-installed it, synced it through Dropbox, etc but couldn't make it work and they did not respond to my request.

I wrote this review months ago and I still have the same experience. My ipad still is not on the premium edition and the designers have never answered my emails. I still use it. It’s OK but Not great.

I love this App!


It is what I was looking for in a note app. I tried several of them, but in my opinion this the best of them no frills.

You can start off with trial version to test yourself as I did. I loved it so much that I paid a small fee of 4.99 I think, to unlocked all the other features it have. I also gain peace of mind of a ad free app! It was well worth that small fee. I seen other apps charged far more and app is useless.

If you like simplicity and sufficiency and organization, then this may be the app for YOU!!! Like I said test your metal and push it to the petal sort of speak. Happy Trials
