Description of App

People are using Simplenote to keep notes, lists, ideas and more. Your notes automatically synchronize with your computer and all your devices. It's extremely easy to use. For those who want more power, you can also use tags, pins, versions, and sharing.

The best way to learn about Simplenote is to try it. After you download it, you'll be asked to create an account. This allows your notes to synchronize with your computer.

After you sign up, try creating some notes! Then use your computer to sign in at All your notes appear there, too. Changes you make will synchronize back and forth automatically.

You can also use Simplenote with other devices. Check out our Downloads page for a complete list of products that work with Simplenote.

The free version of Simplenote slides a small, high quality ad to the top of your note list. If you like Simplenote, but you don't like ads, you can subscribe to Simplenote Premium. Going Premium also gives you some extra goodies.

Thanks for trying Simplenote. Send us an email if you have any suggestions for improvement:

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.
