Notesy not syncing anymore

iOS & iPadOS

I have been using Notesy and it has been working flawlessly for the longest time. My last sync seems to be on the 27th, and I believe at that time, I was on IOS 11. It says dropbox error. The only thing I've done was upgrade to 11 and I think I did it on that day, but don't remember. I've sent an Email to the developer, but on checking the domain, I don't think they will get the Email I sent which included some debugging info which I sent yesterday. Is there another app I can use? Its important as I have things I need to sync with dropbox so I can make corrections if I mistype. I suppose I could use google docs but don't think I can have folders within docs to keep things separated. Thanks for any ideas.

I have the same problem and I am interested in any alternative you may find.
So far the best I found is the DropBox application itself which allows to edit text files directly. (but without all the cool options of Notesy)

I'm seeing the same problem. Also I've just checked the App Store and I cannot find the app in there, so it is very possible that it is no longer in active development, which would be unfortunate.

After posting originally, I did check the app store, and I did not find it. I got the text files in google documents, and am using it that way. I need to send these files too, or at least the one, so I did find a solution, but I wanted to see if it was my doing, or if there was a definite problem. Thanks for the responses. They are much appreciated.

I am still running IOS 10.3.3 and noticed the dropbox error message from notesy yesterday. Admittedly, it's the first time in awhile I've needed to sync something via notesy. I unlinked and relinked notesy to dropbox to no avail. I'll be looking for alternatives and will post here about anything I find.

Notesy has been the greatest note taking app for me. The single reason that stopped me going to I’ve tried almost 30 app on the Play Store but none would offer the same features as Notesy...(text only search, ability to read JPEG and PDFs, and use Dropbox)...unfortunately the same is true for the App Store...

I would gladly pay for a Notesy 2....

If u ever find a notes app that can sync with Dropbox, understand its folders, search plaintext all the files, be able to display JPEG and PDFs, all with a sime UI like Notesy does, then please let us know...
