Avoid Simplenote For Note Taking – Unreliable Sync Erases Notes


Simplenote is a note taking application which offers methods to take notes on the web as well as all major smartphone platforms. Recently we’ve had experience where notes disappear right before our eyes as they are syncing to the various devices on our account (web, Android, iPhone).

And it looks like we are not the first person to complain about poor sync functionality with Simplenote.

With the start of the new year many of you could be looking for updated or new ways to take notes while on the go. We have found Evernote to be the most stable when syncing between various devices. Microsoft OneNote is also a good alternative.

In our view you should avoid this product and instead focus on a more reliable alternative such as Evernote or OneNote.
