What is it about?

Simplenote lives up to its name as a simple, easy to use note taking app that just works. In fact, one of Simplenote’s strengths is that its UI is so unobtrusive that you can’t help but focus on writing. The app and the automatic syncing to the Simplenote webapp are free. Although Simplenote’s goal isn’t to be “full-featured,” it has almost all of the features necessary for a note-taking application, including full text search, organization of notes via tags, the ability to view older versions of your notes, offline support, and email export.

For those who...

  • Take and access notes on multiple devices
  • Enjoy simple note-taking apps

Not for those who...

  • Prefer note-taking apps with drawing features
  • Prefer their current note-taking app

Why we love it
