Customer Reviews

Great app, but don’t use it for code

Great, simple app, but it turns quotes into smart quotes, which doesn’t play nicely with any code whatsoever. If you just work with text / writing, then Simplenote is great. NVAlt is better for you if you write any code.

Here’s a question for the developer: What’s with the Help dropdown that loads an obnoxious alert?
