  • 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.

    Simple, Fast, Multi-platform, Markdown support


    Tagging system less functional than folders

    Simplenote is a great basic note-taking app. Sometimes the more full-featured note-taking apps are more hassle than they're worth when you just need to jot down a quick idea.

    The markdown support is particularly nice, allowing for quick and easy formatting when you do need it.

    The notes quickly sync across mobile apps and the web app, which means your notes are available when you need them. I've used this app for a few years now and it's my go-to note app.

I love simple note. I've been using it steadily since 2011

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.
