Erases Note Contents

If you start a note, go do something else and don’t explicitly save it first, it wipes out the content. It should auto save or at least keep it open with the original content. This was reported by someone else months ago and has not been fixed.

Plagued by bugs, but has potential

There have been ongoing bugs with the iOS app for a couple of years and Synology does not seem motivated to update the app. Some of the iOS bugs include:
- You cannot use the arrow keys to move around when using a Bluetooth keyboard. It works in the subject line, but not the note itself. Very annoying when trying to edit a note.
- When cutting and pasting in a note, the font often changes. I always leave the note in the default font, but there are often font changes after cutting and pasting. To fix this, you often need to go back to the browser interface and correct the font issues.
- When cutting and pasting in a bullet list, you often get “phantom” bullets that are very hard to get rid of.
- The palette of colors available in the iOS app are pathetic. They are dark and muddy and difficult to read the words that have been highlighted. The palette in the web browser is very nice.

Unless it is a very simple note, I tend to just use the browser interface on my iPad. The main downside of doing this is it only works when online.

Wipes out content of notes when left open

When you leave a note open and leave the app and then come back to it after some time (not sure what that amount of time is), the contents of the note will be wiped out. This is an unbelievably bad bug, you have to fix this Synology!

If you have a copy of the note that has synched to your DS then you can retrieve that copy from your note history, but if you’re somewhere where the app can’t connect to your DS then I think you’re out of luck.
