    Easy to use, cross-platform availability and supports markdown on the Mac app, tag based note sharing, ability to publish notes online


    Markdown support is not available on mobile versions as yet. Likely to be available soon.

    Simplenote is one of those finest note-taking apps you can ask for. Coming from Automattic, the company behind, it enables seamless ability to publish the notes online. Great app, to sum it up!

  • Pros: 

    Clean, simple, lightweight


    Almost too simple

    Simplenote truly was the most beautiful app of its day. It completely transformed what productivity was for me. There aren't many apps you expect to still be using ten years later.

It's one of the sweetest note app ever made. I use it on Mac, Web & Android. It's super light, notes are searchable with tags. The best feature is you can share the note with someone by just adding their e-mail in the tags. This sharing is fun. It's more like a simpler version for notes with some features from say evernote, keep & google docs. But super simple.
