Is there a note writing app as basic as Apple's "notes" but with a better UI?

Hey everybody! I am still searching for a super simple app that pretty much does what the standart "notes" App does on iOS but with a cleaner/better UI. yes there is "evernote" which is great but has already too many functions for me. I just want to type words in nice typography 😕

    In most cases, I don't mind using the 'notes' app, but when I'm trying to do something a bit more creative than plain text and doodles, I use NoteLedge (by Kdan Mobile). I really like the level of personalization I get with NoteLedge when creating notes - I use both the handwriting option on my iPad (with an Apple pencil) and I type my notes up on my phone and I can add sketches to my notes, stickers, import media content (images, videos) and have them alongside my notes for school. NoteLedge is quite easy to use and I actually enjoy using it and making my notes as creative and full of color as they can be (this makes the note-taking process way more fun). I'm also a big fan of making voice notes, it's highly convinient when I'm multitasking. Good app overall

    I am a big fan of NoteLedge. I used to use the notes app on my iPhone, but it always felt a bit limiting. With this app I'm able to take notes, sketch (on my iPad) and the app is well-designed and I do beleive that the UX exprerience is better.

    The notes app on the iPhone is useful for some things, but I like NoteLedge because you can definitely do more in it, there are lots of features and tools and overall it's a great way to take all kinds of notes.

    iA Writer 4

    Embed images, tables and text as blocks of content in text

    I love iA Writer for the minimal interface. I can open a new document and just start typing. The left and right panels collapse for even more space. There are no ribbons, icons, and unnecessary UI elements to distract you from your goal of writing.

    definitely seconded. i don't use Apple Notes anymore, purely because of iA (i wasn't even looking to replace Notes, it just sort of happened).

    Typora is great - a minimal interface, very simple to use, no clutter, just the basic features you need.

    This may come as a surprise, but this little text editor is not just a favorite for Developers, but also it's pretty good as a minimal note taking app. The best part is that you can just write stuff in it, in a new tab and close and when you open it again, everything will be as you left it.
