The creative process, for many, requires privacy in the initial moments of inspiration. Sharing ideas is great but there is a time and place for everything, and in the initial phases of the creative process, a tremendous feeling of creative freedom comes in knowing the words written are not going to be broadcast to the world, either explicitly by being shared to social platforms, or implicitly by being stored in the cloud somewhere else.
You don't even need to create an account to use Note Simple and all of its features. Just launch the app and start writing.
When you are ready, notes can be easily exported in bulk, without using the cloud.
Perhaps you'd like to share a note. Each note can be easily shared with other text-based apps.
It is hoped, giving you this safe environment to write will be a refreshing experience of privacy and will allow more free comfortable expression to occur, which will then in-turn be better content that you create.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a fun app. Initially I was quizzical, because I’m so used to being connected to everything all the time. But because of the font and user interface, it feels nostalgic and simple, haha.I appreciate having a contained experience and being able to know I can share something on my terms.
It’s nice knowing that I can freely write down my thoughts and ideas without the fear of that info somehow getting into the wrong hands. I know that’s sort of paranoid, but that peace of mind results in me feeling less inhibited in my writing. Feels like a dollar well spent.
Simple but clever
Love the simplicity and good looks of this app. As a compulsive list-writer, I use it to write lists and appreciate that my notes are private, no mining, no cloud, ALL MINE. Privacy is more important than ever right now, so it’s refreshing to find an app i can control.
