Letterspace Comments

Pretty and essentially pointless.

about Letterspace and Simplenote, Turtl 9 days ago

It's a simple note taker for Mac, iPad and iPhone. It looks marginally prettier than Simplenote, but it does about the same thing. It's proprietary eye-candy, basically. Letterspace also costs money, isn't open source and relies on iCloud to sync between your devices.

A more private, secure, open source and more functional alternative is Turtl. Both Simplenote and Turtl work on Mac, Linux, Winows and Android. Both support markdown (or are about to in the case of Simplenote for Mac).
