Awesome, simple, reliable!

I've used many apps over the years to synchronize my notes between devices. Simplenote is the simplest, problem-free, reliable app by far. I use it daily to synchronize notes between home, work, PC, and mobiles devices. It is indispensable.

I know it’s not bullet proof but this platform needs at least some forum of security. FYI easy to brute force. Don’t put any valuable info on this platform. Devs... I’ve made this request before..

The best. Wish it had a URL link scheme

LATEST UPDATE: (4.11 and 4.12)
Links don’t work when tapped in a note on iOS 12 on iPhone. They flash for a second and then nothing happens, where the built-in browser used to open them.

The new UI updates in 4.12 are gorgeous and much clearer! Great work!

My main app for all notes. It’s bulletproof.

I really wish I could link to my notes from other apps though. So I could save/share a link directly to a note and then tap a link from within another app using a URL like simplenote://blablanote#subsection2 and it would open Simplenote and go directly to the note and possibly a subsection anchor within that note.

The Things app has a great URL scheme where searches can even be executed from a link, show specific tag lists, etc. Very powerful. Wish I could link to Simplenote from Things or MindNode.
