Simplenote for iPhone review

One of Simplenote's most attractive features is its clean, easy-to-use interface. In fact, there are only two other windows to Simplenote besides the text-editing panel – the home and the options screens. The home screen is the main file viewer with search bar, while the options screen can force a sync with the online server and associate your iPhone with a Simplenote account. The functional text-editing window has no metadata fields or advanced formatting options, and no hassle in trying to get to a note.

It’s just as easy to get your information out of Simplenote and onto your Mac. The app has a syncing mechanism that stores notes on the web, accessible from any browser. Any changes made to the online notes will be sent back to the iPhone.

Codality has recently implemented some new features, such as the ability to lock in an orientation, support for TextExpander snippets, and advanced sort ordering.

A premium version allows users to subscribe to their notes as an RSS Feed, gain unlimited access to the Simplenote API, create notes by email and automatically back up notes. It costs $8.99 (£6) per year.

OUR VERDICT

For jotting down quick notes, ideas, and bursts of information, Simplenote performs beautifully. We still use Evernote for accessing lengthier notes created on our desktop computers, but Simplenote is much easier and quicker to access while on the go.
