Super product!! Simple, clean user friendly interface! I have never seen such a well written product. It can synchronize notes between a windows desktop and multiple android devices. Sensitive data can be kept in a "safe" and the contents encrypted with a passcode. The data can be searched. Everything is done at lightning speed. It is so much better than using Outlook and third party synchronizing programs. I am so glad and thankful I found this app when I had to give up using Microsoft office. The author releases updates and is very responsive to questions user may have.

I love this app and the best part is that it's 100% with no ads and limitations on how many notes you can add. The only down fall for me is the fact the you don't really have any font choices and they are all pretty much the same size. Other than that it's a great app. I would like to make some fonts bigger then others. Like putting a heading in big letter than smaller on the actual body of my text. I am not sure if the makes since 😊

Thank you for the constructive review. The font size can be adjusted slightly in the settings, would you like to choose a bigger size, or do you mean the height of the notes?

I love the app! It is perfect for what I need. There are almost no permissions, you can keep lists, and it is like a "hole" in your phone for private or sensitive data. The developer is very hands-on and responds very well. He cares very deeply about his work and those using it. It's hard to find open source apps that don't back to the cloud or what-have-you.
