I came upon this app out of necessity. Until a few days ago, I used an IFTTT applet for a similar function, but it stopped working all of a sudden. Found Boomerang, and it is exactly what I need! I like that the developer is active on it, which makes me feel better about its longevity. One thing I actually like more than my IFTTT applet is that, with IFTTT, if I tried to send a note when not connected to wifi/data, it would try to send (causing the note to disappear), and then give me an error. Boomerang, however, will notify of the network error while still keeping the note on screen. This means I no longer have to select/copy every one of my notes before clicking send, just in case of a connection issue. I can wait to copy once notified of any issue. Though it somehow saving the note and sending it automatically once connection is established would actually be a better solution, I understand that would more be the function of a email program, not just a note taking app. The last suggestion I would have would be what I saw another reviewer suggestion--the ability to enter smtb info to avoid any third-party servers. I'm *not* suggesting the developer is doing anything nefarious. But it's always better to err on the side of caution. That said, not only would I gladly pay a few bucks for an app that has the features I described above, I would also pay for it in its current state. It is definitely a huge time saver for me compared to what I used to do. Thanks, dev! :-)

Helpful when it works. Complains about network issues on an almost daily basis, which is extremely inconvenient for an app that's supposed to be quick and easy. Spending a minute to wait for the problem to resolve (while tapping the Send button every few seconds to see when it starts working) completely defeats the purpose of using something like this. If the problem is not fixed, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who's looking to streamline their note-to-self workflow.

Hi, network response is supposed to be near instant, there is definitely something going wrong here. Would you mind reaching me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can investigate ? Thanks
Great mail yourself app with attachment ability! Been using MeMail for years but it wouldn't show up in certain situations and this does. SMALL ISSUE: I can't hit SEND if data/wireless are off at night. (I use this frequently if I wake up & think of something I need reminded of.) MeMail would allow me to "send", placing the email in the outbox which would auto send once I turned wireless/data back on. Could possibly be a deal breaker for me. Unless that feature is coming soon.
