Reviews From google play store

I love this app. But as many noticed with the last update (early March 2020), all my old notes showed on the main screen but were blank when I tried to open each one. I updated all my apps hoping it was the problem. Didnt work. So I went into this app specifically and updated it alone. Now its back to normal and I can open up all my old notes!

I like the notes app but there are some limitations. Why is there only options to make my font size larger and not smaller than the default? Unless I'm missing the option somewhere but if that is the case you have made the option very difficult to find as my options to change the font size are only "default", "large" and "very large". Bold doesn't really show a very defined difference compared to other apps either. I would also like the option to move my image around and write next to it.

I loved this app and I am redownloading it in hope that it will fix the problem. Recently it wont let me make new notes, it will open it but wont let me type/write anything. When I select an old note it will pull it up but nothing will be there. Overall I have lost all my notes and I hope I wont this issue in the future.

The March 2020 update clearly was quirky and you couldn't open the notes. I have been using this app for years and transferred notes between phones when I've upgraded and this has never happened. It really scared me to think all the data I've lost. But I followed the advice of another user below - update the app separately and I now everything is full restored and I have access to all of my notes. It would have been helpful if Samsung provided this info versus trial an error by the users.

A great app , however badly managed ESPECIALLY directly after a system upgrade. Opened app for info required and no data available. Warning appeared showing ' app crash ' - ongoing until I accessed app on Google Play Store and updated ( system update just done ??? ). A critical app and more focus required from Samsung/Developer.

I had a ton of notes on here...and was pleased with it. Then one day I tried to open my notes and all i would get was a blank page. I tried rebooting my phone and checking settings. Finally I hit edit on each note before opening, shared it to my email and emailed to myself. I am now deleting it and going with something else. With all these negative reviews you would think they would do something to fix it.

After update, I could not pull up any of my notes. It showed they were there, but screen was blank when trying to open them. I've been using this app for a few years and had some important lists and other things saved...its all gone....tried to uninstall and then luck. Overall this has been one of Samsung's worst updates...

I love this app but the March 2020 update hit me like it did others. Went into an individual note but couldn't see or edit it. I couldn't find a way to uninstall the update so I shared my notes like I was going to text it to someone and grabbed a screenshot of each one before deleting the app and reinstalling. Works now.

Ummm....AMAZING and Simply Perfect! For some reason on my phones, I've always ignored/uninstalled this I was preparing to do it again, I actually ended up fully opening it and discovering it's EXACTLY what I've been looking for in a 'notepad' app!!! At least give it a try and check out all of the capabilities and features!!! I truly wish I had sooner! It's everything I need for my hectic life and note taking!

This app came on my phone. With the latest software update to my phone, the app kept crashing and I was not able to view my saved notes at all. I'm so mad. It allow me to uninstall it (which I was never able to do b4). I'm attempting to reinstall now to see if my things r lost forever. I'm so upset.
