    I have used this for many months to write my songs. Recently, whenever I try to write songs on my Chromebook (not sure about phone), where I normally write them, I will minimize the screen, go back to the app, and most of my progress has been deleted. I go into the history but it is not backed up in there. Is it not saving in time to be in the background or am I doing something wrong? It's a pretty annoying bug. I have to copy and paste everything. I just hope it doesn't start deleting old notes

  2. guest-avatar

    I don't really like the new search UX, the search results used to appear instantly as I'm typing the keyword. Now when I'm typing a keyword in the search menu, the search results won't appear, instead I have to click the enter key. Idk, it's just me though. Perhaps add a button to disable search history? cause I don't like my search history exposed lol

  3. guest-avatar

    installed it yesterday. Gave it 5 stars almost instantly but sadly now I'm gonna have to lower it because: 1. Lost note (after closing & re-opening note was gone). 2. Windows client doesn't log in (gave correct email, password). 3. Online (app. Simplenote) logs in but shows "no notes". Refreshed couple of time. 10/10 concept. Sadly didn't work for me.

  4. guest-avatar

    A really useful, simple note system that connects to all my devices, computer, phone, tablet and there is an internet browser version. I have it open constantly to keep up with ideas, my contantly running to do list, and or even something as simple as a grocery list. I much prefer it to either Keep or Evernote. A big plus is that Automattic bought it, the same company that is behind WordPress. That's good because they are putting some manpower into it and keeping it on a regular development schedule. They are also are supporting it and answering technical questions. And best off, it's free.

  5. guest-avatar

    I really tried to give simplenote a chance but at the end I gave up. Synchronization is not implemented properly. I used it on 3 devices and roughly 50% of the times I opened simplenote my notes have been overwritten by an older version, which makes it unusable for multi-device usage.

    Three times this app has reverted a modified note back to it's original state, losing all of my new data. I have had to do my budget three different times now. The waste of time caused by this error is unacceptable.

  7. guest-avatar

    Why it doesn't have undo? I lost my notes cuz of this. The history is available when i conected to internet and also i mean when i selected all text and i pushed a word accidentally on my keyboard all that selected note was not available and was not deleted too it needs a undo option, that's all .

  8. guest-avatar

    Data loss with new notes appears regularly. Not acceptable. Will now go to another app. Message for Support: Yes, I have SN on my Mac also. And sometimes opened on both my Mac and Android simultaneously. Should not give problems right?

  9. guest-avatar

    Simply wonderful! Syncs seamlessly between computer, tabs and phone making productivity and grasping of ideas, notes, screenshots, audio without any technical hurdle we users don't want to encounter. Highly recommended for Note Curious Creatives 🤍🙏✍

  10. guest-avatar

    It worked beautifully for the first few days but for some reason now its absolutly terrible. Be warned this does not have a save feature!! It has and auto save that for me has not worked properly for days! I have lost important course work and essays because of this and now I cannot send work between my pc app and android. I wish you would just put a save button.

  11. guest-avatar

    I've reached out through customer support and the SimpleNote Twitter account, without choosing to log out or to delete anything, my notes have all vanished. It would be great if someone from SimpleNote could get back to me

  12. guest-avatar

    I'm usually lazy to write a note title so I just press enter to skip the title. One day, I forgot to press enter and wrote a long note (so it's recognized as a title and has bold text), nothing happened until I deleted some words and it became lagging so much (and I had to kill the app and lost my note). I tried it multiple times and I can say the issue is persistent. Idk, may be incompatibility issue with spell checker etc or issue within the app itself. EDIT: Will send email later

  13. guest-avatar

    Typing still lags after the recent update. Closing the note and reopening it resolves the issue until the lag starts up again.

  14. guest-avatar

    Buggy and laggy on Android since the last update. I have relied upon Simplenote for years but sadly its getting increasingly fragile.

  15. guest-avatar

    this is a great app and I use it every day for basically everything but I wish the syncing of it was better. it works usually but sometimes glitches out and deletes things which is not ideal since I do everything on it. still a good app but I wish it wouldnt glitch like that Edit: it is now 2020 and I am still experiencing the same issues with it where my work gets deleted for no apparent reason. Extremely frustrating as the "restore" feature will not even show me the past work I want to get to

  16. guest-avatar

    App is grtbut latest update made it difficult to search things, before update we used to type few initials and it used to show us the notes but now you have to type then press search to get the results. That was the only thing that made me stick to this for last 5 years it looks. Please for heaven's sake give that feature back. Rest everything is great.. peace. ✌️

  17. guest-avatar

    Neat and clean! Please add a markdown bar for creating content faster, especially for none english users.

  18. guest-avatar

    I would not recommend this app. I'd rather use Standardnotes which doesn't include the feature 'data loss'. I've had several occasions where a created memo would be lost. Very disappointed with the developers because they never seem to fix this data loss issue. Wrote thousands of words in Standardnotes and never lost any memo due to 'sync issues'. Do yourself a favor and avoid this broken app.

  19. guest-avatar

    The app itself is satisfying, it works pretty well and does what is supposed to. Yet it still has few downsides. For example, I get some lag and freezes from time to time, especially while editing longer notes. And, of course, lack of any backup option is as well disappointing.

  20. guest-avatar

    For text only it's great. But missing feature to add pictures...

  21. guest-avatar

    This has been my most reliable app till date coz it's always lite, has a dark mode, secure and has never dissapointed me in all its updates. However, as far as security is concerned I still have some fear about getting my data leaked as I seldom store some of my important passwords in here.

  22. guest-avatar

    Awesome!! Can sync in between web Android phones.... useful features like history archives & restore

  23. guest-avatar

    Mustajab Chougle


    This app is awesome! However I feel like you should add text formatting as well, it would help a bunch. Edit: Thanks for the response! Why aren't notes saved in the same way it is shown in the preview of markdown?

  24. guest-avatar

    Richard McGovern


    Why must you make an account? I just want to edit notes stored only in my device internal storage. No backups to cloud. No personal information from me.

  25. guest-avatar

    Been using this for about 3 years. Awesome! Simple. Clean. Easy. Just the right amount of capabilities without too much complexity. Companion access to same data via web-browser makes typing notes easy. Love it!

  26. guest-avatar

    One of my fav notes app. Why must change the "on screen search results"??? It is more convinience to type in search tab and the results showed up directly below. It much faster and easier.

  27. guest-avatar

    Would rate higher but notes only sync whilst both devices are connected to the same network AND the application is opened on both devices, which is a little bit of a hassle.

  28. guest-avatar

    It will be useful to have an option for monospaced font, for code snippets.

  29. guest-avatar

    Olivier Tremblay-Noël


    App constantly crashes (on both website app and android app) on some notes, cant recover data. Unreliable.

  30. guest-avatar

    You can have multiple Notes, but the widget only shows one, and there is no way to see the others unless the app is opened.

  31. guest-avatar

    Almost perfect, need better sync and undelete options 👍😎

  32. guest-avatar

    Hit or miss syncing from laptop to phone.. Hasn't improved any

  33. guest-avatar

    Android Chrome OS (Desktop/Laptop) Mode needs attention.

  34. guest-avatar

    The widget should be dark as well while using dark mode.

  35. guest-avatar

    Simple and useful. BUT it has a few issues: 1) When I open a note, "Add tag..." is not visible as it is below screen and I've got to scroll down. Unintuitive and impractical. 2) Collaborate feature really could be better. It should allow me to select emails from my contact list. It could auto-suggest emails from contact list when I start typing. :-| 3) Restoring a note from history does not restore its modification date & time. So I cannot put it back in order after unintended editing. :(

  36. guest-avatar

    Michael Akinolushola


    I LOVE IT!! I really appreciate that you can edit cross platform on both ios and android. Only thing though, I wish there was just a bit more text formatting available. I.e. Header, subheadings, normal, bold, underline....honestly just some basic stuff to help when making long notes, other than that, love the app, thanks 🙏🏽🙏🏽😁 So I'm going to try the Markdown edit format, I like the block notes flavor you guys added...just need to learn Markdown now 😅

  37. guest-avatar

    Wendy Beauchamp-ward


    It's impressive- so useful to share notes across all your devices.

  38. guest-avatar

    What have you done in last year? :( This used to be great app, now it's incredibly slow and buggy: lagging when typing, duplicating text when typing, on desktop can't log in due to "captcha not send" error. All these problems started when you needlessly changed the nice simple layout.

  39. guest-avatar

    Kalynn Erickson


    I love this app! I've been using it for years-- I love the cross-platform use, especially between Android and PC. I like having something clean and easy to use to jot down lists and everything I need, and having it all backed up on the cloud too. Thank you!

    They deliver on their "distraction free" claim but it almost feels a little too bare. As a regular user of bullet points, copying and pasting the bullet points from the web is tedious. PLEASE incorporate this function next to the checklist function. Also, there should be a way to search for text within a note. As of now, the search function is only accessible via the home page.

  41. guest-avatar

    Simplenote 2.1 is malfunctioning. When I type something into a note, the app begins automatically repeating/pasting what I just typed hundreds or thousands of times, ruining my note. This has happened on the mobile app as well as on a desktop browser. I have tried uninstalling, reinstalling and updating the app and the problem persists. As of now, I cannot use Simplenote because of this problem. I have emailed Simplenote regarding the problem, but have not received a response.

  42. guest-avatar

    Used to absolutely love this app but now notes will not update/ sync with each other (ex. If you write on your phone, I does not sync to your laptop). Devs have known of this issue and have neglected to fix it, very disappointing

  43. guest-avatar

    It used to be a great reliable app/online note system. But in the last several months, the notes aren't updating properly between online and devices, and sometimes the notes revert to an old version instead of the most current version. To reiterate, this did NOT used to be a problem! IN RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER'S RESPONSE: There are many, many complaints about this or similar issues. The developer's response to most of them is "We can't reproduce the behavior you're describing", which is ridiculous, especially with so many reports of problems. Perhaps it's time to get new developers?

  44. guest-avatar

    I've tried a dozen note-taking apps, and this one is THE BEST. (I use the app on my Chromebook.) Easy to use and virtually impossible for you to lose the note even if your computer crashes in the middle of writing it. Only wish it was easier to print out the notes -- just hit "P" to do it, for example -- but this is small stuff in light of its stability, effectiveness and absolute integration with my chromebook. Beats all the other note-taking programs I've tried hands-down.

  45. guest-avatar

    Best note app so far. Clean layout, sync easily between desktop and phone. And the best feature this app have is mark down, which can make me change font size easily add table ,insert picture, video, etc.

  46. guest-avatar

    The September(?) update broke the app. It freezes and loses text. (The browser version from the same update has a truly unique bug - words typed with Dragon speech recognition software appear on the screen but aren't there when you try to copy them or open the more later.) Please just fix your basic functionality! We don't need bold headings, we need our words to not disappear.

  47. guest-avatar

    This is the best note taking app I've ever used. Fits perfectly with my needs. There is almost no feature creep, so the app stays simple, bug free and fast. The cross platform functionality is a life saver. The recent design update keeps the simplicity but adds a little bit of pizzazz. Love it.

  48. guest-avatar

    hi, you guys are awesome! thanks for this wonderful app! I would like to suggest that you add a search in note feature, so that when you have a big note you can search terms in the note. to avoid scrolling and looking for a specific term in many parts of the note. best regards!

  49. guest-avatar

    Joris Schaefers


    I used to find this fantastic. However, a few days ago, a note was wiped (overwritten I think)… I created a big note during a long flight, but after I'd landed and regained internet, it was all gone :(. I've been using it daily, allot, for years, but this is disastrous. Remove the sync function (I am barely using it anyways) and I'll gladly give it 5 stars :)

  50. guest-avatar

    Great app find it really useful for keeping notes. Very quick sync with Mac app. Can easily export notes. Cannot recommend enough. Update - not going to be using this app anymore. Last week has been so frustrating. Had to uninstall on Mac as the app now just keeps crashing. Tried using the web app and text kept duplicating itself or just deleting the last sentence I had wrote. Similar happening on Android app now where it just deletes sentences. Really annoying!! What have you guys done 😩

  51. guest-avatar

    Анастасия Денисюк


    new dark color theme is not great at all, it's way too contrasting! I really preffered the old sofd dark colors. upd: okay, but dark theme does not equal high contrast theme. these should be two separate settings. because one is responsible for regular users comfort, and another for visually impaired ones.

  52. guest-avatar

    Does *not* sync. When I first installed it on my android phone, it synced right up. But it has not synced since then. And there does not seem to be any manual way to force it to sync.

  53. guest-avatar

    Sorry but since the latest update it's useless. I used to use simplenote for all notes and liked the cross-platform and note history functions. But it got more and more laggy and sometimes in mid-writing swallowed chunks of text which is kind of a deal breaker for a note taking app. Now it also freezes constantly. I'm sad I have to switch to a different app now.

  54. guest-avatar

    Must log in, create a profile, or give info in order to use simplenotes. In reply to dev reply: I was looking for something to just start taking notes. (Techviral, zapier, techradar, etc. "Just open up the app, and right away you can create notes & lists" All the reviews out there gave impression that you can just start taking notes, nothing about signing up. Many note taking apps allow you to start right away then create an account if you then choose to sync/backup. (Color Note is one)

  55. guest-avatar

    Return key jumps down to the "Add tag" line instead of starting a new line in the paragraph. Has been this way for atleast half a year.

  56. guest-avatar

    A great application. It's free, it works as expected, it syncs using the cloud. Nothing to tell, just love it.

  57. guest-avatar

    The history revision only includes the latest writing, it isn't for respective writings. Also, searching doesn't work at all.

  58. guest-avatar

    Siddhant Maheshwari


    After latest update it keeps hanging while typing and leads to lot of typing errors. Folder options should be available to categorize notes. Hope App developers listen to such suggestions.

  59. guest-avatar

    App responds slower wrt the given input.

  60. guest-avatar

    Enjoying the app, however I'd give it 5 stars if: - if there was a "edit" button that you can press before editing a note, so you don't accidently overwrite the text - a "save" button to save the changes - option to put a lock on certain notes :-)

  61. guest-avatar

    My favourite note taking application! Has just gotten even more beautiful with the latest UI changes and dark theme! Please make a completely black AMOLED theme too, I love this application as it's truly cross platform and does the job perfectly, no adverts, absolutely brilliant.

  62. guest-avatar

    The newer versions are much better than the ones i used before I like the possibility of editing and adding from multiple locations I would request though that you look at colornote and copy some of its features here Regardless now i am more satisfied to use it and recommend it for the multiplatrorm use

  63. guest-avatar

    It's started to lag badly. It won't let me type more than a sentence now. My notes are all short and plaintext. I need something similar to Notes on the iPhone. But I'm on Android now. I hope they fix this soon.

  64. guest-avatar

    This is really what i was looking for. I already used boostnote but i disliked the att. Now this app is perfect for me

  65. guest-avatar

    Simple, uncluttered, easy to organize, and always available.

  66. guest-avatar

    Елена Летова


    The latest update (2.2) has made the app impossible to use - when I try to type anything in a note, after few seconds it becomes super slow to react to the keyboard, a huge lag. Hope this issue is to be fixed soon.

  67. guest-avatar

    Wonderful app showing the power of simplecity

  68. guest-avatar

    Marios Polyviou


    Used to love this app but there is a huge lag in typing when the note takes on more text and gets bigger so have to resort to other apps. please fix this bug so i can go back to using it again. I'm on a Samsung note 8.

  69. guest-avatar

    Best note app. Simple as it says and syncs to all devices and platforms. For free! Please don't go away!

  70. guest-avatar

    More than 25% of Android devices in use today run versions below Marshmallow (6.0), yet Simplenote has abandoned them. Someone at Simplenote decided they wouldn't use any of Google's compatibility libraries (AndroidX comes to mind) to make an intelligent decision on whom to support. It's not like Simplenote is so sophisticated of an app that it's capabilities need the latest SDK to make it work, it's just poor decision making skills on Simplenote's part. Goodbye and good riddance, Simplenote.

  71. guest-avatar

    I'm a big fan of this app. It works and syncs across Linux and Android which i use everyday, supports Markdown editing and is open source! If there is perfect in this world, this app gets close.

  72. guest-avatar

    Very good app. But there is one bug, wherever password is changed, I need to clear storage and cache of app. Without doing that app does not login with new password even after logging out.

  73. guest-avatar

    Works very well and syncs great between Android and Windows. Also has finger print and passcode unlock. Please add the ability to create folders and they could be added to the left side pop out menu.

  74. guest-avatar

    Naftali Budamba


    Good sync. Markdown formatting, pin to top, character and word count. Revision history. Edit and preview panes, publish option and tags. Now add ability to insert photos and ability to give notes colour

  75. guest-avatar

    Like the app for my iPhone 6s but on my android g7 Play it crashes, well freezes, if I edit a note. No longer using until resolved. Edit: reply to can't replicate behavior - happens on my g7. It's fine I found another app.

  76. guest-avatar

    So I've had simplenote for around 2 years now and its been great but recently its become extremely slow when typing, there is a obvious delay in the typing. I really hope this gets fixed, i havent really gotten to write because of it.

  77. guest-avatar

    I could use Simplenote with no problems until the previous update, but after the last two updates Simplenote crashes and freezes very often. (currently at version 2.2 and the problems continue)

  78. guest-avatar

    This is fantastic and very reliable app. Most of the times gets the work done but very recently I'm noticing some lag while typing the text. Kindly fix with the update.

  79. guest-avatar

    Excellent app. It really is simple. Syncs with a great Linux version.

  80. guest-avatar

    I have been looking for a good substitute for Google Keep for a long time (I dont trust google products - they breach my privacy) and Simplenote is the best one I've found yet. Light, add-free, free.

  82. guest-avatar

    Love the recent update. Thanks! EDIT : New version is even better than the previous one. I hope the Linux version get same improvement in term of UI. Great job dev!

  83. guest-avatar

    Sluggish, resources hungry, possibly filled with spyware who know, my phone now become slow because of this. Developer, pls reply why this happened? Edit: Ok, I was overeact, I had disable link detector, didn't help much. Mind that my notes as just lengthy text, no links. Apps ws slow or irresponsive for no apparent reason. It was useful note app nonetheless with less easy accessibile GUI. Hopefully developer improve it and pls add-in markdown cheatsheet for quick reference in the future.

  84. guest-avatar

    Simple, neat, reliable and straightforward. I use it to sync notes between 2 computers and a mobile and works a treat.

  85. guest-avatar

    Neat design. Great functionality and the sync and backtrack make your life sweet. Cheers on the amazing app 😁👍

  86. guest-avatar

    Unstable app. Used it for writing, it starts lagging very badly whenever number of notes taken is high

  87. guest-avatar

    Keeps freezing up my phone to the point where I have to force close it. I assume it's a memory leak. I'm using an LGG6.

  88. guest-avatar

    Longtime user and former big fan of the app, however the most recent updates have left it borderline unusable - sluggish, slow to respond and laggy. Such a shame.

  89. guest-avatar

    simple note is a good note pad. Just wish one could change colours of each note made for easier finding of things written. Then it would be great.

  90. guest-avatar

    Very simple and yet useful to note taking task needs. Thank you and more power to this app 😃👍

    Like the app but..... Setting up my new Galaxy Tab 5se - App won't even open. Update: Happiness Engineers at Simplenote were able to get me up and running in no time. Thanks Simplenote!

  92. guest-avatar

    I reinstalled app and cannot login with email but able to login in browser with same email & password.

  93. guest-avatar

    Developer thank you for making such an amazing app. Please can you give us the option to use the device font instead of the built in Roboto font. Thank you and best regards.

  94. guest-avatar

    Will not login even with the right credentials and gives me ridiculous errors. Please fix that. Happens on all platforms.

  95. guest-avatar

    It would be appreciated greatly if the widget can allow the notes to have scrolling feature. Other than that missing feature, this app is perfect.

  96. guest-avatar

    A sweet simple supportive app always deserve 5 stars I have used it on windows and it is awesome i suggest everyone to use it. It is the best and light app available for free in android I love it alot

  97. guest-avatar

    Turn back update! Brakes happen on header!!! (details on e-mail) And tell please... Why to change the only thing on Android was gorgeous because stable??? Why spoiling TOP1 by changes?) Please, Stop Updatind App!! (C)

  98. guest-avatar

    Please add reminder functionality in app, is an awesome app.

  99. guest-avatar

    Perfect. I wish the widget could also appear dark in my home screen. Please consider it in the upcoming updates.
