Customer Reviews


A long time lover of SImplenote. The plus for me is formatting. And the fact formatting is very basic. That is all I want in a note pad.

I would like to see folders added. Like - if I really use this and make hundreds of notes - how do I keep any organization at all? Just one level of folders would be enough for me.

Also - if the developer ever puts in formatting that I have to fight, I'm done with it. For example, I hate evernote, you get some undesired formatting in a note and you may never get rid of it. On occasion I need to copy all my text from a note, remove all formatting and then paste it back into a new evernote note. It's like MS Word. A waste of my time. Good thing, it is clean of this so far. please keep it that way.

First one that works for me

I have tried more than a few ‘note taking apps,’ but they just weren’t available where and when I needed them. But I took another chance, and Surprise(!), this one seems like just the ticket (so to speak). By giving each Note a simple name that reminds me of what I need to do, I can just glance at the drop-down and “Whal-La,” (or however you spell that?) there are the things I had forgotten to take care of today. I say give it a try, so far it has not affected my computer (MacPro) at all, and that is always a good sign because I tend to have more than 2 apps running at the same time, ... all the time.

Incredibly handy and useful

NotesTab Pro’s simplicity, coupled with exactly the right features, and the automatic syncing between devices, makes this one of my most frequently used and valuable apps. I have two Macs and an iPhone, and any changes I make in one place are instantly available on the others with no effort on my part at all. And all of my notes are a single click away, no matter which device I am using.
