Fantastic App

Junecloud has never disappointed me with any of their apps. Hats off to the developer for a job well done here with Notefile too!

I use this mainly to store some canned email response templates that I frequently use, since my company’s email web tool does not work properly with text-expanders (and truth be told, I’m old-fashioned and prefer to copy/paste anyways). It’s nice to have easy access to the text snippets via the menu bar.

At the moment, there is one small option that I’d like to see added. I’ve selected the preference option to “Hide Automatically” when I de-focus on the note window drop-down from the menu bar, which is a nice touch after I copy some text out and need to get back to my email web tool. However, when I go back to the Notefile menu to copy my next-needed snippet of text, it would be nice to have it automatically show me a list of all my notes again, rather than having to click the ‘gear icon > Find’ or hitting 'Command-F.’ It’s a super-minor thing, I know - so call me crazy or whatever you like :-) But if I at least had the option to set it to by default always go back to the list of all notes when re-opened, or at least be able to do so via one click instead of two, that would be the icing on an already-delicious cake!

Anyways, this is still a fantastic app. I know my use for it is a little specialized compared to it’s braoder intentions, but it’s darn-near perfect.

Still Gold

I’ve been using this app for several years; although it hasn’t been updated in a while, this is still works great. I use it in the menubar, to jot down quick notes/thoughts related to things I’m working on — quick and easy (and much faster than dealing with Notes or similar note-taking apps with a larger footprint. I also have the iOS apps, and sync works great. If there’s something I’d like to see in an update: the ability to pin notes to the top of the list, as well as a dark mode. Otherwise, this is one of my most-used apps: for work and personal use. Here’s hoping the developer will continue to support this app! There is no replacement for this one in terms of simplicity and aesthetics (and I’ve tried almost all the usual suspects in MAS and outside of MAS).

Favorite & Most Used App

I picked up Notefile over two years ago and it quickly became my favorite and most used app. I have it on my iPhone, iPad (in the dock) and MacBook (Assign to All Desktops). After two plus years it’s still my favorite and most used app.

The interface is dead simple so it's easy to add notes quickly. iCloud sync is seamless and near instantaneous. No tags or folders, but the search function makes it easy to find the notes I'm looking for.

Had a minor glitch when I upgraded to Yosemite, and Junecloud tech support was outstanding - gave me a quick & easy fix & I was back in business.
