    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.

    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.

  • Pros: 

    Simple, clean interface.


    A Code Snippet feature would have been awesome!

    Add a code snippet saving/sharing like github gist.
