    Seems a little complex first use but quickly getting my head around it. Will certainly consider buying the pro, which seems reasonably priced, to get the extra features. Like the fact that it's not too bulky, though surprisingly is a little larger than I'd expected. Will update review to 5 stars once I've used the app a little longer. But so far, very pleased with this discovery.

  2. guest-avatar

    Fair Note is a great App! Love it. Been using it for less than a month and getting used too it. I did however found one minor issue whilst wirtting a new note or edit an existing note. That, after a fullstop, after pressing the spacebar, the capitalisation do not work. The keyboard on my device is Gboard. The first new character after a fullstop remains in lowercase. A minor problem but important non the less. I'm planning to upgrade to the pro version.

  3. guest-avatar

    This is perfect!! I downloaded every single simple notepad/memo app available that didn't include ads and out of all 9, this is the app that has everything I need without any unnecessary extras. It's very similar to the original Android "memo" app on Samsung phones, but better. 2 bugs/suggestions: first, with time selection it'd be nice of you could type in the hour/minutes because it's hard to select a precise time. 2nd, if you pin a note to status bar and bulk delete notes, it stays pinned.

  4. guest-avatar

    I use FairNote, and I haven't had any difficulties with it. But it's got a few more Permissions listed that I don't like the look of in an app that provides encryption. If Simple Mobile Tools ever makes the same app, I'll be replacing yours with theirs.

    I figured out below feature is there ignore this prev feedback!!, Simple to use. I would like a feature where decryption is only temporary. Should encrypt as soon as I move out of that note.

    Vyacheslav Konovalov


    The app is great, simple and feature rich. Please add icons to note menu items. And maybe rename "Select note(batch mode)" to just "Select note(s)". Thank you.

  7. guest-avatar

    Love it, as simple and works. Would be nice to be able to set custom reminders, for ecample of 3 months repeat ot entries.

  8. guest-avatar

    I just installed. I'm glad I can cut and paste without losing carriage returns like a similar app does. But there's a notification I can't clear .. help appreciated

  9. guest-avatar

    complete features and user friendly. i hope there is rue black theme (not grey) feature at upcoming update. thanks..

  10. guest-avatar

    Intelligently designed, very reasonable price. Best encrypted notes app I know. Only problem: I can't sort any checklist by dray&drop. The item bounces back to its original position as soon as I lift my finger from the screen. Finally, I'd find it extremely useful if the notes list itself could be sorted by drag&drop.

  11. guest-avatar

    Where have you been all my life? This is exactly what I needed; the ability to keep text encrypted till I need to see it, then decrypt on-the-fly and be able to search, edit, and save. Also export to other devices via backup/restore. Will upgrade to support development. However, has no adds, nags or other dysfunction in the free version. In response to a question, the developer wrote back to me in only three hours. That's 5+ stars responsiveness.

  12. guest-avatar

    Very good app take time to learn. Secure Storage of encrypted notes. With the label feature you can create different categories of notes. What would make this a five star app is the ability encrypt/decrypt multiple files at the same time. The pro version of let you encrypt/decrypt all notes. When reading an decrypting a note it will encrypt immediately if you switch screen, if access multiple times need to enter the password over. Needs option keep decrypted in read-only mode.

    Really great app. Simple, clean, yet does everything I need! The only thing missing is a Windows app to synchronize to.

  14. guest-avatar

    A nice & versatile app. Would be great if able to add Attachment/Images since it's a note app. Location-based Reminders would be an added advantage. Thanks.

  15. guest-avatar

    This app gives me all the features I need. I was more than happy to upgrade to the paid version.

  16. guest-avatar

    Kindly provide the Option of Remainder I. E Daily, Tomorrow, Monthly. Yearly. For all labels. Add more options of Calculator, etc

  17. guest-avatar

    Gabriel Cristian


    Please add option not to ask for password when locking the note and let it be locked automatically when exiting. Thank you.

  18. guest-avatar

    Very good, versatile app, simple and easy to use

  19. guest-avatar

    Excellent, is it possible to make the scrollbar draggable inside read only notes ?

  20. guest-avatar

    Been using this app since February (it's September now) and it's still fantastic. Main things the app does is make checklists, notes, labels to arrange the notes, and obviously encrypt the notes. After getting used to encrypting the notes one-by-one, it really is as simple as it gets. You can also pin notes to your notifications. The backup works. The best notes app I've used!

  21. guest-avatar

    Benjamin Padilla


    Good app for taking secure notes. My only request is that instead of decrypting/encrypting the notes (or I guess that can remain an option) having the app immediately open to an unlock screen with a pin and/or fingerprint unlock. Then you would have access to all notes immediately instead of going through the process of decrypting and encrypting the notes each time you use the app. In response to the dev: keep the file text encrypted always and only through the app it shows decrypted.

  22. guest-avatar

    Very good, no adds, full color

  23. guest-avatar

    Overall, I like the app and it has most of the features I'm looking for. However, there are a few features it is missing before I can fully switch to it. Needs to sync with multiple devices, I'd pay for a reasonably priced subscription even for this feature. As far as using on multiple devices I can't even enable pro on my chromebook, just tells me I already own it. If you wanted to take it even further, desktop apps, or at least a web app would be a great addition.

  24. guest-avatar

    Excellent app. It's a straight upgrade from Apple's Notes app with extra customisation options. One minor complaint is that I can't make some notes hidden (especially encrypted ones). The app always defaults to the Notes category and shows all of your notes be it personal or generality. I'd like to atleast have the option to not display some of these notes (and to be able to create a category that can have the option to be encrypted), otherwise, it's a good app.

    Fingerprint is back again.. best notes app!!!

  26. guest-avatar

    An easy to use privacy friendly app. Well developed user interface. Very impressed by what it has to offer. But I have some questions: 1. how does the markdown function work in this app? 2. why does the reminder function always use vibration, even after turning that off. I only want sound, but it never makes sound only vibrate (my phone is not in vibration mode). 3. Is there a windows software available? 4. Is the encrypted backup decryptable without this app?

  27. guest-avatar

    It's a great app, I've been using it for a little while now. My biggest issue with this app is how there's two 'Notes' sections/labels that functions the same. It's kind of annoying. Other than that, it's pretty useful and worth the Pro version.

  28. guest-avatar

    Have tried several note-keeping apps over the years. This one seems to suit my needs best on my phone right now, especially for straightforward lists, reference notes, etc. Provides an easily navigable library of information that I want to refer back to. Backs up automatically, too.

  29. guest-avatar

    Features that other users might find interesting. 1. Pin to top note or checklist, so that users find most frequently used notes on the top of list instead of search or scroll. 2. Backup to google drive folder includes multiple copies of separate files each time backup is made, try to minimize number of backup files to 1 or 2.

  30. guest-avatar

    The app is perfect if you need to take notes, has markdown and encryption. I like the dark mode which wasn’t available in the last text editor I used. It allows a notification persisted in nav bar to quickly add notes. Would recommend if you have to take notes but are conscious about encryption

  31. guest-avatar

    so far so good, still trying to get the hang of it but pretty easy overall. just need to figure out what kind of organizing of my thoughts will be the most beneficial. regardless of how I do that part, it has to be more efficient than all my scattered about paper notes everywhere. lol

  32. guest-avatar

    Web Interface is a must, with simple login. for example using qr code to sign in to web interface, like whatsapp, would be more than enough. this version includes most of the weaknesses of keep, other than encryption. so, can't keep it now just for encryption.

  33. guest-avatar

    It does exactly what it's supposed to in a simple and clean manner. Very nice app !

    I'm saddened by these comments. Where is one person asking about the actual security of this app? Anything less than full source code means it could have a backdoor. Even so, people with security backgrounds should be making attacks against this app's encryption, and most importantly while it is running. Sadly, it fails the very first test. Make a note. Encrypt it. Lock your phone. Open it, and bring up running apps. There it is, your encrypted data, right there in the thumbnail. Funny enough, of a dozen note apps with encryption I have tried, only one obscured the screenshot in running apps.

  35. guest-avatar

    Got it just now, the 256 AES bit encryption is a cherry on top with the cloud backup options,such a nice and simple app, it is now already a fav and definitely my default notes app now.

  36. guest-avatar

    Great app for short notes, lots of great features. I finally took all my little notes off of Google Keep as part of my ongoing process of taking back privacy.

  37. guest-avatar

    The app is great, but when the phone updates the app, encypted notes lose encryption. I have to load the app again and encrypt the notes again each time.

  38. guest-avatar

    Great app, but as stated by other users would be great to have a couple more feature like, encrypted cloud backup, automatic relock of encrypted notes, fingerprint app access, read only flag for notes, Would be nice as a pro user :)

  39. guest-avatar

    Really nice app, I use it all the time to jot down notes on my phone when inspiration hits!

  40. guest-avatar

    Super. But remember password. Or else 🥵

  41. guest-avatar

    Great note pad for focused note taking. The only thing that could be improved is pen support.

    love the app, just wish some more features would be added such as drawing, voice notes, photos and videos

  43. guest-avatar

    In Batch mode selection change label / label option is missing and searching keyword is not very efficient it should search trash and all other labels otherwise good app thanks

  44. guest-avatar

    Anocha Yimsiriwattana


    Clean, efficient, especially for simple secure note taking.

  45. guest-avatar

    this is a simple note taking app with the feature to encrypt it. its simple and minimalistic.love the app.

  46. guest-avatar

    App needs to retain formatting across devices. Nptes written on say a Chromebook will appear completely wrapped on an Android phone.

  47. guest-avatar

    Great app. Please add an option to unlock the app by fingerprint. Thanks.

  48. guest-avatar

    Great note-taking app! Backs up to Google Drive and has encryption!

  49. guest-avatar

    How can I reset my password for encrypted notes if I forget Then how are u validating if the password is correct or not if fair note does not store tha passwords

  50. guest-avatar

    Good one, have all feature i want. Btw can you please make the left menu list smaller. Also option to have a section of encrypted notes with one password to open them all

  51. guest-avatar

    Seems very good, but is there any way to prove safety? that the app isn't sending note data to the creator? i paid for pro btw

  52. guest-avatar

    Terrible! Needs Pro for encryption.If this is open source don't even think of hitting that download button.

  53. guest-avatar

    This note app has the proper Search feature I was looking for. Great app.

  90. guest-avatar

    How many limite add note word

  91. guest-avatar

    Having come back to this app, I've noticed that I cannot do a custom schedule, ie something that occurs bi weekly, is this a possible inclusion on an update. Otherwise a very tidy app. Dev is willing to listen to requests as well and actually reply which is a credit to himself. Thank you.

  92. guest-avatar


  93. guest-avatar

    I love the App. It's easy to use and I feel secure with the extra encryption. I was curious though. If you backup your encrypted notes do they stay encrypted in google drive? Also how or can I move an encrypted file onto a USB storage device?

  94. guest-avatar

    No real sync between devices. The problem described via email.

  95. guest-avatar

    Excellent note taking app: easy to use, privacy/security oriented with reasonable permissions and highly customisable. Had the same saving issue as another reviewer, but in the brief time between having the problem and leaving this review, the dev has already fixed the issue! Definitely worth the IAP to remove ads, add fingerprint functionality and support the dev. Thank you :-)

  97. guest-avatar

    This is a great app for note taking and organizing related notes. I would have given a 5-star rating but this app really needs an undo ability in the editing functionality. The only work around is to disable autosave.

  98. guest-avatar

    Downloaded the app, paid for the features copied and pasted from old app. After pasting, all text was shown. When I opened the app again after closing, the notes all lost about 80% of their content - only the first 20 lines or so were still there. Apparently the app has limitations regarding the length of notes? Or did I somehow find a bug? Perhaps it is an issue with the copy paste function on the phone itself? Either way, reverting to a backup and deleting this app. Oddly only the first note retained all its content...

  99. guest-avatar

    title backuped of individual notes should be note title note date
