Great Note Taking App

I primarily use SimpleNote to jot down ideas and copy for my online business. It’s also really handy when typing thoughts and emails on the fly. One of the best things about it is the syncing across mobile and desktop so you can transition your work between the two. I think the highlighting of text for copy and paste can be a little smoother (since I do a lot of that). I also think section organization help. Right now I use the tag but I find it cumbersome and end up just using search more to find what I need.
