Absolutely perfect

I have been using Evernote always and have been greatly liking that. In the meantime it became paid and with free app I could just use two devices.
This app I learn about through google search and I am surprisingly delighted using this. This works fine across platforms and very quick and efficient .
I believe this is the best free substitute of Evernote, though I believe it will become paid very soon. Only wish that the price of usage must be moderate and not very high that we have to look for alternatives again.

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.

Minimally perfect!

Kudos to the developers for building an application, this seamless, minimal and non-invasive. With a simple and elegant design, this app helps you focus on what you write. Since I like working in the dark, the dark theme of this app perfectly suited my needs. Trust me. A simple dark theme is not easily available on many other writing apps on the store.

I could only call it second to Google Keep.
