(Was) Near perfect Edit: Switched to an S5 and everything ran fine for awhile. My phone is now running stock Android 4.4.2 and Denote refuses to even open. The app crashes immediately & files are blank in Dropbox. :::: Since Epistle went belly up, I've been looking for another clean and simple text editor with Dropbox support. Denote fits the bill perfectly and looks very similar to the dead app. The only downside I see is that the .txt files lose their formatting when opened in Windows, hence the one star being removed.
Kept Overwriting File on Dropbox I really wanted to like this app after my experience with Epistle but it didn't seem to check with Dropbox before it opened my file. Consequently it overwrote it with an empty file. I tried several things including forcing a sync but it never picked up the file from Dropbox. Thankfully Dropbox keeps old versions. I restored the previous version and uninstalled Denote.
Simple and Free Very simple and easy for syncing notes with my computer and accessing the notes offline on my phone -- and free, which is right in my price range! The only feature I really wish it had is tagging, since it doesn't support folders. It would make my long list of files more accessible if I could tag (label) files as, for example, "Notes", "Stories", "Poems", etc., and have a list of labels I can click on. It also doesn't auto-indent, which makes reading some text files created on my computer difficult to read. But that's not essential, especially since I want the app to stay free! :-)
Finally! But still needs work... I HATE that Dropbox doesn't allow font sizes or (especially) monospace font, which is why I found this app. I was thrilled to see Markdown support, because that is why i wanted monospace! This app is a good start, but still needs a lot of work. Examples: Make monospace the default (that is what makes markdown so readable!). Make settings available while editing. Allow to edit any text file on the file system. Also I can't access tons of preexisting dropbox notes; must be in this app's only folder. :(
Love it! This has replaced Espistle which no longer syncs with Dropbox due the developer offering a new paid version of the software. I like Denote better anyway, so I'm glad Epistle stopped working for me. The inclusion of Markdown (which I had never heard of before) is a great way to format your text documents. It might be nice if Denote worked with all text documents scattered throughout my Dropbox account, but I'm happy enough with how it currently works.
Simple and usefull, but.. Simple and usefull, but I request the option to preview the note if user touch the note item, because I mostly want to view only the note when touching it, editing the note is rarely, only when I need the change in my note.. Sorry for my bad english.. Thanks for dropbox sync feature, yesterday I uninstalled the app by mistake. So I installed the app again, opened it, then I waited the app to sync from dropbox, and the dropbox sync feature works as I hope.. Thanks very much..
- Ability to change the font size used when editing notes
- Ability to change the type face used when editing notes
- Fixed notes list sorting issue. Toggling the sort order will now display by name or by last modified time
- Fixed a bug that could cause a force close in rare cases where a network proxy is being used
