I love this app, updates are timely

I chose this out of several other notes apps to make mostly bulleted life lists (like workout choices, regular recipes to make, etc). I’m big on keeping things simple and keeping my options open, so I can be healthy and live in the moment. This is a wonderful app to whittle down your lists to simple beautiful uniform ones. I upgraded and it seemed so insignificant at the time, that I don’t even remember how much I paid. But, it was worth it, even if it’s a pretty simple app.

I had a moment of panic when it started crashing each time I pasted anything - went straight to App Store reviews to see if something was awry (it had great ratings when I downloaded), and it turns out my iPad had not updated a new version, yet. So, I updated, and presto! Everything works perfectly again. My confidence in the developer is increasing, and I hope they continue the good work.

One Happy Environmental Student!

I chose this app randomly, scrambling to find a faster way to take my notes for my online classes, since traditional pen and paper note taking was taking too long, and I am so happy with my choice!

The app is so sleek, has a clean design, great almost pastel aesthetic, easy to use, and you can personalize notebook covers to fit your needs!

Not only that, but as someone who cares for the environment, this is a great alternative to traditional notebooks, and takes up little to no storage, no matter how many notes and images you have on the app!

Also, if you ever have any bugs or problems with the app, simply send a quick email to the developers, and they will fix your issues in a jiffy, and are extremely kind! I can’t thank the developers enough for getting my bug issue fixed when I was on a time crunch in school! XD

I highly recommend this app to anyone who not only wants to cut down on their paper usage, but any student, journalist, writer, chef, or anyone who needs to write something down quickly without any hassle, UpNote is the right app for you! :)

Best notes app

This app is beautifully made. A work of art.

The creator clearly had the user in mind with this app.

On iPhone you have quick access to many things like pasting the date, changing font color, lists, etc.

On Mac the app is beautiful and you have an awesome focus mode for the note you’re writing.

You can add notes to multiple folders, the search is great, you can nest notebooks, etc.

At least test this app out if you’re looking for a great notes app.

I’ve historically used iOS notes but it just doesn’t feel nice to use.

I can’t stand can’t arrange the notebooks except alphabetically. I’m amazed they haven’t updated that.

Anyway, I have no complaints about this app, only praise.

I chose to be a monthly subscriber instead of the single time purchase so I can keep paying and supporting the developers over the coming years.
