Simplenote for iOS

By Automattic Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

shelbybrown Jul 14, 2016

Simplenote is a bare-bones iOS app for creating basic notes and lists. It automatically syncs your notes across your devices and makes them shareable with colleagues. You can also search them via tags and pins.


Easy to use: Some note-taking apps come with an overwhelming number of features to sift through. Simplenote is much easier to work in: Just launch the app and start capturing ideas as notes or lists.


Too featureless for some: If you're aiming to capture photos, drawings, Web clippings, or voice recordings, or if you want to add fancy formatting, then look for a more robust note app.

Bottom Line

Simplenote for iOS is a useful note-taking app for those who only need to capture and share basic notes and lists.
