Filenotes is an app designed for simple note taking and cloud sync. It has no closed or proprietary formats, no lock-in and is compatible with any device which supports text files. Filenotes has integrated Dropbox synchronisation but you are free to use your own software to sync files with your cloud provider of choice.

• Simple material design – no pretending to be a yellow legal pad
• Light and dark themes
• Choose your fonts and their sizes
• Create, read, edit and delete your notes.
• Optional auto-save
• Optional word-wrap
• Notes are stored in the filesystem
• Built-in, but optional, Dropbox integration with various sync options

• Is there a way to force a sync? Yes: swipe down
• Is swipe-down sync bi-directional? Yes
• If I change a note on Dropbox directly, will Filenotes download that change? Yes
• Will replication interval wake my phone? No. Filenotes never runs in the background and will never wake your phone. But every time you open Filenotes it will check to see when it last synced. If it was more than the interval then it will sync
• If sync fails, when will it next attempt sync? Next time you open the app and see the main note list. Filenotes will attempt to sync once per screen visit until it succeeds. You can swipe down to force another attempt.
• Can I sort notes? Yes. Filenotes supports sort by name (ascending) and date modified (descending)

• Currently unable to write to an external SD card
• English only for now
• No Simplenote integration (Simplenote’s APIs are no longer open)

• IOS: Plain Text 2; Nocs;
