Love the app! 😍

Hi! I've been using the Simplenote app for 2 years and I love it! I mostly use it to make notes while studying and the auto-syncing feature is my absolute favorite because I can be sure of not losing my notes and also access my notes through multiple devices. The search function allows me to quickly find the relevant keywords, which is pretty handy for the extensive notes. However, I've noticed that the most recent update of the app does not highlight the keyword being searched for in the note itself, unlike the previous versions of the app. I would appreciate it a great deal if the feature were re-enabled again. Thank you so much for this wonderful app!

Just what you need.

I’ve been using this for quite a while now. It’s simply the best thing for writing on the go. If you’re a traveller and looking for writing, making notes, jotting down sudden brilliant ideas, magical moment that might disappear if you don’t document them. Then this is just perfect for you. While in a train, airplane, cruise or simple trekking, this helps you collect and sort out your daily bursts of love.

Most importantly it syncs with your Mac in real time. I’m forever thankful to the wonderful soul who introduced me to this sorcery.

Excellent app

This has become my primary notes taking app, everything just works.

I have one feature request though, give us the ability to view markdown by default after opening a note, basically reverse of what happens currently. If I want to edit it I’ll swipe left and edit the file and next time when I open it, I should be able to view markdown.
