Awesome app

Pretty close to perfect. Only things missing are the ability to change font face and line height, and perhaps a web interface to add and view notes.

Beckov ,

Really well done

Great features and functionality with a simple interface. Easy to use and looks great. Just wish the font could be changed and/or the font size and then this app would go on my dock.

Also, would be great to be able to turn off or remove the done/undo keyboard line as it takes up more screen space so the amount of the note you can actually see when editing the note is pretty small. You could add the undo and done commands to the top toolbar to show more of the notes page when writing.

But still a nice app and the pay what you want feature is a great idea.

Developer Response ,

Font size can be changed by pinch gestures. Try it!

Really well thought out app!

This is no exaggeration: This app has every featured I've been looking for in a note-taking app.
Customization is king, and there are several logical ways of customizing how you want the app to behave; from what occurs after sharing/copying/creating, to disabling sharing services you don't need.
The developers cast a wide net with this app, and it would suit the needs of various users; including VoiceOver users. It's really well thought out.
If I could add only one feature, it would be to allow us to add our own custom folders to organize notes. But even if this feature never comes, the app is excellent now. I paid $1.99 but it's worth more.
