I keep lots of temporary notes that definitely don’t need sorted or archived. So, this is the perfect app for me! 💛 10/10 stars for simplicity, ease of use, and both light and dark mode.

The Perfect Plain Text App! Streamlined!

I LOVE this app! Just to clarify: this app converts any copy/text you paste into the body to plain text--removing html coding & graphical elements. It has 2 modes: blackboard & whiteboard. The blackboard is great because you can be in a dark room and not disturb people because the screen emits less light and is easier on your eyes to work with over hours at a time. The whiteboard works just as well! Very simple interface. There is no way to save different notes--it's all 1 page and that's all you get. Great, simple tool!

Fixed: Doesn’t work on iPadOS 14.

This app needs to be updated to be compatible with iPadOS14. App immediately closes upon opening since I’ve updated iPadOS
