Great app with an exciting future!

I used to manage my notes and tasks in another app whose name I won't mention here. It served a lot of my needs well, but over the years, I started to need a bit more. However, and in spite of the fact that they had a full team together, the pace of their development began moving at a glacial pace. After looking around a bit, I found Noteplan and I'm in love. It comes with all of the features I believe should be standard in a note-taking app this day and age, and it even adds some exciting features I didn't even know would be helpful. What's most important, however, is that Noteplan's developer seems to take his app very seriously and has singlehandedly added new and impressive features to Noteplan on a consistent basis. I'm glad to be on Team Noteplan and I look forward to what comes next!

Developer Limitation

*Responding the the Developer Response:*
I want to report back that i am in fact using the CloudKit sync option on across devices. I also happen to notice the that mentioned sync issue is also raised by others in your app review by zverhope and gop1334. I am not sure if this is your way to deflect the problem or a way to buy time in resolving the limitation and app maturity. I second my voice with the other reviewers on fixing the aforementioned issues. Thanks for the response and looking forward to a real fix!

*Original Review*
Poor technical implementation, the app in itself shows great concept on the productivity category. However, a lot of the sync, sort feature are actually rather basic. Mentioning a few of the annoying parts of the application, among them: new notes is only in a single designated location, inconsistency sync between devices bringing old folder structures and notes back, lag from url pasting and other daily qualm. From an expectation point of view for a productivity app, this app just make it annoying for the user once they invested time into it.

Thanks for the review!

Sorry that you are not satisfied with the features. There are tons of feature requests and I need to prioritize which are the most popular ones. The sort functionality and choosing where to store your files are unfortunately not at the top of the list. Regarding sync, it sounds you have used the Dropbox option which is in "beta" and I kept it only in the app due to requests. Please use CloudKit or iCloud Drive. They don't have such problems.

Pasting an URL has a lag because it needs to load the website and find the "title" attribute. You can alternatively turn it off in the preferences under "markdown" and the lag is gone.

Do you have any other points I could address? I encourage you to reach out to or share your troubles in our Subreddit (

An amazing app with a great developer behind it

I used NotePlan 2 and then stopped because there were some things it wasn't doing for me. NotePlan 3 has filled those gaps, and now I'm back!

This is a great tool for keeping track of all your things: Todo/task list, meeting notes, external brain, etc. Since everything is in Markdown, it's also easy to work with via other tools if you need, so it's very extensible.

And the support for NotePlan is unique. Eduard is a responsive, friendly person who will work with you to help get things worked out! I've never had the types of conversations I've had with Eduard with any other paid app. It's like I'm a real person and not just a "customer" or "user".
