    The best app on my phone

    This is literally the best app on my phone. That is saying a lot, but this app just gets me. It is just so common sense with its functionality and lack of stupid extra bs, and it just works the way it's supposed to. It's free, your notes are safely stored including old versions of notes saved, and it syncs between devices. There's a version for every os including desktop os's. It's got some other useful functions I don't use like the ability to share a note with collaborators and writing in markup or something, but I can't comment on them because I haven't used them. I bet they work great though. This is probably the least buggy app I've ever used too. It's lack of stupid extra bs means it just works right. Download it right now. It's a strict upgrade from your dumb default notes app, there are no downsides to replacing it with this. The simple fact that if you ever accidentally delete a note you can just look at the saved history version is all the reason you need, and is the reason I sought this app out in the first place. Just DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Absolutely simple, exactly what I need.

    I used Evernote for a few years, but it was a bit bloated and slow, and I really didn't need or want the formatted text or images that often resulted when I pasted text into my notes. Then I moved to Apple's Notes app, and for a long time, I tolerated its oddities and frustrations on my iPhone, Macs and iCloud. Duplicated notes and syncing issues were annoying and rampant. But when Apple removed the ability to sort notes alphabetically on iOS, I had had enough. My search for an alternative led me to Simplenote about a year ago, and I've never looked back. It's exactly what I need, and has the added benefit of having a Windows app too. Intuitive interface, built-in versioning, and solid as a rock. It still makes me happy every one of the 100+ times a day I use it to quickly jot down a shopping list, recipe, to do, movie to watch, book to read, or random thought. I don't think I've ever loved an app so much. And through Simplenote, I also discovered Simperium. :)

    Very pleased

    I have no complaints about this app. It’s just what I needed. The reason I downloaded this one was because the one I was using lost a lot of my information and I told my friend I would much rather have a simple notebook app that will just keep all my notes (and not lose them!) and that also wouldn’t take up a lot of space on my phone. All those other apps where you draw and have audio recordings and all that stuff were apps that were gonna take up way too much room on my phone. This is perfect. I am able to study and do my homework and not have to redo any of my work because it is all right here. I don’t have to worry about losing the information ever because it is either on my phone or on the accompanying website and it even saves earlier versions of my work. I really do like everything about this app. It does just what I need it to. Oh, and I also found out that I can sort my notes alphabetically which was a nice plus :)

    I rely on Simplenote.

    I am one who makes many many notes which contain info about everything that I might need to have at my fingertips anytime, anywhere. I call Simplenote a note-keeping app rather than a note-taking app. I don’t need images or links to calendars or many of the other bells and whistles of other notes apps. I just need info at the ready. Whether about my car’s purchase details or its service history’, dates of doctor’s visits, a serial number and other info about my computers and devices... I keep lists of favorite quotes, ideas and thoughts, song lyrics, recipes... just about anything. Simplenote syncs instantly and flawlessly between my Mac, iPhone, and iPad. And, of course, everything is always available on the the website of my account. I’ve depended on this app for several years. I’ve looked at other note keeping apps but the utter simplicity and elegant performance of Simplenote fulfills my needs. I love this app.

    After checking this app in all of my devices (iPod, iPad, Nexus 5X and Windows 10 PC), I am more than happy with its quality. It has a simple and beautiful design. The accessibility is pragmatic and easy. I think the most important thing is the fact that it's connected to your email. It allows access in all of your devices, immediate syncing and most importantly complete assurance that data will not be lost. You can also change the theme to a dark one. It can help your eyes and it looks beautiful for those who prefer a darker look. If you have got a FingerPrint device you can use the fingerprint instead of a password (at least for the Google smartphones). Just like its name, this app is good for anyone who wants to take simple notes. I am commenting after a long time looking for a good notes app that is functional, has a good accessibilty and is easy to use. I have tried around 20 apps and I prefer Simplenote the most.
