Upon further review...

I gave a pretty harsh review about this after a failed iCloud sync apparently caused me to lose a bunch of data. I also forgot to cancel my trial subscription so I decided to give it a second shot and I’m glad I did.

I take back what I said since I haven’t been able to replicate the issue since deciding to give it another go. Perhaps it was user error? Who knows

This app has everything I’ve been looking for and it makes it easy to find things especially with the color coding. I can’t wait to see where the developers take this! Perhaps a search function?

I liked it before the limitations and pressure to pay

I’ve used this app for years, including subscribing to the premium features at times. However, with this last update, you are limited to a very small number of lists unless you pay for premium features. The app is visually appealing and I’m a visual person. It’s also simple to understand and use. But it doesn’t offer much else and doesn’t justify the cost, IMO. And it will not be usual when for most users unless they pay, at this point. (I think there is a limit of four or so lists.) I would be more willing to pay a one-time fee than a monthly or yearly fee. I also read the developers response to a recent complaint and found it very unfriendly and unprofessional. It was sarcastic and while the developer(s) have surely put work into the development of the app, not having understanding or compassion for why a user may be understandably upset at recent changes and responding so unprofessionally (and again, this was just a response I read,) makes me less inclined to support the app as I don’t feel valued as a customer. There are a lot of todo list apps, many with tons more free features and there is nothing so special about this one. I would be happy to update this review if the app changes for the better (ideally with advance notice given to users). Until then; I’ve deleted it.

It's got everything you need.

I love this thing! It is by far the most visually-pleasing note app I have found in the App Store.

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, right? This app has it all: beautiful color schemes, the ability to set reminders, the freedom to move your notes and sub-notes around, checklists, the ability to insert images, etc. I have yet to find a better app.

There is one thing, however, that keeps annoying me. It's more of a bug, I guess. If you want to edit the "detailed" text of a sub-note (found by clicking on the little arrow (>)), you're completely unable to scroll up or down once you actually click on the text.
You're able to scroll through the entire text if you're just viewing it, which is great, but as soon as you click on the text to EDIT it, the ability to scroll just goes away.
So, if you want to edit the very beginning of the text, for example, theres no way for you to reach the top without basically having to erase everything, since you can't actually scroll your way up.

This is the SOLE reason why I use another app to write and edit longer texts. I write my paragraphs there, and when I know it no longer needs to be edited, I then copy and paste it to Suru. But that's so impractical. I wish I could do it in this app altogether. It would allow me to get rid of the other app altogether.

It's a small bug, but it's a pretty tedious one. Nonetheless, this is app is totally worth it.
