Jot is the no-fuss way to take notes. Our app helps you get all your big ideas and little ‘things to remember’ into a simple, stripped down format. Easy swipe gestures keep your list of notes short and orderly. Remember anything by searching through your full archives. Use quick and easy todo lists, and basic reminders to stay on top of daily life stuff.

Jot leaves out all the fancy, distracting stuff you don’t need: formatting, drawing, tags, categories, shared lists, sync, stickers, etc. It’s just as simple and straightforward as using a piece of paper. Only what you need. No funny stuff.

• Create notes instantly
• No titles or saving
• Distraction free writing
• Quick feed of active notes
• Search through your entire archive
• Customization — turn off spelling, grammar helpers
• Get data out by swipe to copy

Repeat reminders

Expect to support repeat reminders and add the date of saving the notes

Excellent rapid note-taking

Jot focuses on one thing and does it well: minimizing the effort needed to go from having a thought to getting it written down and stored ASAP before you forget it or need to return to what you were doing. I use it all the time to store random one-off musings without needing to navigate folders or perform any unnecessary actions. The only thing I wish it did better is to offer export functionality - porting things over individually is overly time consuming if I want a backup on my laptop.

Saves my precious thoughts

Some of the random stuff that appears in my mind seems important and/or interesting, and Jot is the best way I’ve found to quickly eject that material into a safe holding location for future review. Its flexibility means I’m never snarkily complaining in my head about its clueless developers, but rather just focusing on my possibly-brilliant ideas.
