Simply Handy!

Like my old standby Quick Drafts — which needs updating and doesn’t currently work — the main virtue of this barebones scratchpad app is that it opens instantly, making it just the thing the catch a fleeting thought or make a temporary note. It can also be used with copy & paste to convert formatted text to plain text.

Still, I was originally going to award it four stars rather than five because the type size was so tiny and I couldn’t see a way to change it. However, by reading other reviews, I learned to my relief that you can adjust the size either with the pinch/zoom gesture or in the app's panel in Preferences.

I urge the developers to add that crucial information to the basic instructions they already provide on the page you see the first time you launch the app.

Thanks for your feedback. Will look at adding instructions to the startup text as you suggest!

Very Convenient! Love it!

Easy go to app for a note, phone number, grocery item or a quick thought. I’ve tried many apps for such ease of use but nothing is better. It is a definite must have! Thank you developers!

I keep lots of temporary notes that definitely don’t need sorted or archived. So, this is the perfect app for me! 💛 10/10 stars for simplicity, ease of use, and both light and dark mode.
