I Like Simplenote

Adam Pash reminded me of this notetaking app. It basically records text and syncs them across almost any platform you’d use. That’s it. But it does it flawlessly. And without a yellow background and annoying font.

Evernote’s growing bloated as it grows more powerful. Although their voice-to-text feature sounds neat, I just can’t jump into existing notes quickly enough to update them. There’s a lot of friction there for that, and I don’t use their other features. And it’s quite expensive at $US45 a year.

Apple’s own notes app in the iPhone syncs, but not very well, and I can’t get over the comic sans and yellow background.

Simplenote is free or $US9 a year for unlimited notes, backups and the removal of ads. And it works better than fine: It works perfectly.

Having said that, I’m going to go ahead and ask for more features, which will bloat it up a bit: How about the ability to share notes with other Simplenote users and maybe a very simple spreadsheet format for basic lists?

Either way, whether you use an Android, iPhone, Mac, PC or any combination of these, you should check out Simplenote. Lifehacker has a few recommendations of which apps to use on each platform, since there are many that tap into Simplenote’s API.
