Simple, straightforward note app that gets the job done. The interface is not chaotic and the use of "Notebooks" as folders is intuitive. Easily syncs your notes to Dropbox as .txt files so you can access your notes anywhere, including the Notes website. Could use an autosave function, however, as notes are not saved unless you close them, something I often forget especially when multitasking. An indispensable tool nonetheless.
This is the notes app to get, especially if you are a Dropbox user. Not much to say really. Works wonderfully! The only thing I could wish for is to be able to save a note without closing it. I have now been using this app for a couple of years and it's on my very small list of must-have apps. A great addition is that you can access you notes in your web browser also. The only thing I miss is to be able to print notes from my phone. Just buy it. It's so worth it supporting development of this great app!
This app's best features that I use and love is first, security. It is very flexible in setting up your passwords, although only numbers, I manage my series of notebooks behind a ten digit PIN Then, you have the flexibility to create as many notebooks as you desire. You can even hide a notebook inside another notebook. I use mine for keeping detailed sensitive notes about web addresses that require.logins, usernames and /or email addresses, banking and credit records with all the details and it offers multiple back-up places like Dropbox or Google drive. Then, you can set up syncing as well as import - export of notes, printing and more I am sure there's features that I've never tried yet, but I have not missed any features I wish it had yet. But, the flexibility in organizing, reorganizing, printing, exporting backups,and restoring lost notes because of unsaved changes etcetera makes this my main go to notebook to hold all my sensitive information that also helps.me create longer, stronger passwords. I recommend that you try it for yourself if you desire any security at all.
1. Search function freezes my phone and the app on note 3 and note 4 2. After reinstall i lost several months of work. Although it looked like it constantly sync to dropbox it did not. I accessed my notes directly from dropbox and to my horror some were ok and some were not.
Most annoying thing about this app is that sometimes when you go back to edit something it will change what line it was one. Sometimes this causes words to end up on the same line or touching. Only fix is to use space or back button until it corrects itself.
I've used this for years and enjoy its ease of use and focused functionality. Stay true to the product and please don't add bloated additions. Leave it simple, usable and focused. Thanks
