Review Simplenote

Jay Feldman
7.7Good
Simple interface, no ads
Weak functionality, not enough of settings, old fashioned design
Simplenote for Android aspires to be your virtual notepad. Easily create, organize, search and share notes, all on the convenience of your Android device. Now there’s really no reason to forget that shopping list; just be sure to put everything you need on that list to begin with.
Simplenote has a very clean and inviting interface, however, it’s sorely lacking in style or modern design. All is laid out nicely, however, it could use some custom themes and controls to make it more pleasing to each individual; as it is, it feels a little homogenized.
You’ll need to create an account to really use this app effectively. The left side of the screen features your lists and notes, with a short preview of the contained text. Along the top right of the screen you’ll find a compact row of icons that allow you to quickly search, share and create new notes. I like that you can easily create categories, or tags, for different kinds of notes. I setup Things To Do, Shopping Lists, and Reminders, all with ease.
The search tool is invaluable for sifting through the mass of notes that will undoubtedly accumulate. And all can be shared via the usual methods; email, social media, etc. Existing notes can be easily edited, reorganized and trashed.
Simplenote functions well and I ran into no real issues. However it’s all a little too sparse. It does the job, it just could maybe look a little better while doing it. But it appears to be completely free, with no ads tip jars. This is an early release and I’d love to see how it develops over time. Personally, I like Any.Do better, but this is a solid entry. It certainly will help keep you organized and remind you of the important stuff.
