Find your notes, tags not needed.

Notes can be edited in the Simplenote app or on a Windows computer with the free Resoph Notes program. The simplenote server keeps them in synch.
The killer feature is searching. As you type in the search text only notes containing it are listed and then within each note, the text is also highlighted.
No need to waste time categorising or tagging notes. I have used this app for years. Never had a broken update or lost notes, unlike another huge note taking competitor. Havn’t needed written post it notes in years either. Aways able to find a note by asking myself “what words would I have used when writing this note in the first place”.
Personal feature request would be to make the font selectable in the app as I need fixed size font so that columns line up on text based reports.

Great, simple, note taking app!

For taking notes I don’t need all the (bloated and unnecessary) extras. Straight forward, quick, responsive note taking, online or offline, reliable, I’ve not had issues syncing. On iPhone and iPad (Safari only, Chrome doesn’t post?) it’s easy to add web sites references to Simplenote, I like the way web sites (URLs) are linked not the content duplicated, which keeps storage down and speed up. Web links are hold and go, tap takes you to edit, simple. The only thing missing for me is the ability to save from PC browser to Simplenote (Windows/Chrome) and Chrome on iPhone and iPad. Then all my digital worlds would be linked! It’s my go to note taker, used frequently daily.

Account created without my consent

Someone has created an account with this website using my email. I received a “confirmation” email of “my” new account opened in the middle of the night. So I went onto the website and said I’d forgotten my password (of an account which I’d never opened in the first place) and then changed my password and closed the account which I’d never opened.

Update - I have now been updated by the provider of this service that someone had used a large list of emails and seemingly created a load of fake accounts. Thank you for taking the time to reply (I have updated my rate to 3 stars as a result). However, it should not be possible for anyone to create an account using someone else’s email like has happened with me, given that I had never confirmed my email. I’m happy to learn this is being investigated. Thank you.

Developer Response ,

These unwanted signups were a result of a widespread issue that we are still investigating.

To clarify, we did not personally acquire your email and sign you up. Rather, someone else used a large list of email addresses to create new accounts on our service.
