Can rest easy.
I was depressed once, and I kept some notes in the notes app that comes on the iPhone. I talked about how I was feeling, what I was thinking, as well specific events that happened. These notes were very valuable to me as they detailed my experience. I wanted to save them and be able to look back later in my life and review/ analyze what I had written during that difficult time. But one day, while trying to access my notes I discovered, to my horror, that the notes had disappeared! I still don’t know what happened and have found no way to retrieve them. They are lost. Valuable details and memories I can’t get back. I looked around for a new note app that would guarantee the safety of my precious notes. I found that app in Simplenote! My private notes are fingerprint and password protected. They are backed up and can be accessed from any of my devices! I love it! The app has a cool feature that saves not just the current note, but also the original version of the note and all versions following! I feel assured knowing my notes are safe with simplenote!
The best app on my phone
This is literally the best app on my phone. That is saying a lot, but this app just gets me. It is just so common sense with its functionality and lack of stupid extra bs, and it just works the way it's supposed to. It's free, your notes are safely stored including old versions of notes saved, and it syncs between devices. There's a version for every os including desktop os's. It's got some other useful functions I don't use like the ability to share a note with collaborators and writing in markup or something, but I can't comment on them because I haven't used them. I bet they work great though. This is probably the least buggy app I've ever used too. It's lack of stupid extra bs means it just works right. Download it right now. It's a strict upgrade from your dumb default notes app, there are no downsides to replacing it with this. The simple fact that if you ever accidentally delete a note you can just look at the saved history version is all the reason you need, and is the reason I sought this app out in the first place. Just DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!
ORGANIZED WORD TRASHCAN 💓
I really just wanted a little app I could throw words into like a trash can... And I wanted it to be pretty-looking... iOS Notes was great but not cross-platform which always spooks me... Evernote was cross-platform but took like 60 seconds for me to open the app and write down some words PLUS I had to NAME every note! My notes don’t have names, they are just word trash!!! So that was stressful. But simple note is great cuz you don’t have to name your notes!!! And it’s pretty!! (Admittedly I don’t like white and blue apps cuz they feel dystopian but I have since acclimated) And the tagging is JUST nice enough for me to have some semblance of organization without overwhelming me. 10/10 do recommend
(Idk if the simple note developers are listening but I do have one piece of feedback!!! I wish that editing a notes tag DIDNT change its “last changed” time stamp. I like using the “sort by last changed” view, but sometimes I like to go back and re-tag old notes, which I kind of wish I could do without then accidentally changing the chronology.)
