Great App, Kills my Phone I love the app and the desktop client is great. However every time I run it on my phone it sucks up ram and cpu usage. I can sit and watch the cpu usage just run at 2% and sometimes spike up, even when I'm not doing anything. For now I keep it turned off unless I need it if this gets fixed I would definitely bump it up to 5 stars.
Not a native mobile experience Looks like the same js/html codebase is used both on mobile and desktop. Being a cordova app the UI is sluggish and not very responsive. The app name is well justified. Giving three stars because it's a open source project. Ran into this app while searching for alternatives to evernote, but finally went with an open-source chat app which lets me send messages to myself via named channels which for me work similar to tags.
No list view - almost no features in UI I want to like it, but the notes are presented as a jumbled up pile of boxes. What is wrong with showing in a list? I want an encrypted evernote-like app, but this is painful to use like this. Also only allows one tag per note. App should let me quickly pick which tags I want then filter by any combination of them, and sort the list.
Dumb app, no list view It's all about privacy and security, BUT NO LIST VIEW?!? instead it shows full contents of all your notes on screen. This is ridiculous. Do you expect me to cover the screen with my hand every time I open your app??
Not bad The whole login system is a bit strange, either I get an annoying icon that I'm logged in, or I have to login every time I access it. That's terribly poor design. No support for check lists, thats incredibly basic functionality for note taking software. That said, for an early release of this system it's pleasant to use and largely functional. Bye evernote!
Pretty good Would like it to stop saying that there was a problem turtl everytime i log out and get errors. At first it would happen when I would close the app and then I started logging out and still continue to tell me the app had an error when I closed it.
Turtl v0.6.4 has some great changes! Here's the complete list:
- Stay logged in! No more typing your password endlessly. Turtl does this by running a service that securely stores your credentials and stays alive long past the main app getting killed by the OS or the user.
- Note editor text box now sizes itself properly
- Add a "Sync now" button to the Turtl menu. This can help out in cases where syncing stops.
- A number of UI fixes
