Made by the company behind WordPress, Simplenote is an easy way to keep notes, lists, ideas, and more. Your notes stay updated across all your devices. No buttons to press. It just works. Your notes are synced across your devices when you create, add to or change them. Registration is required but the app and service are free.
- Good for plain text without the bloat of Evernote. Lately (late 2018/early 2019) it's been having trouble syncing reliably between devices, and there's no way to force a sync or see what's happening with sync. That's a showstopper problem, so I've switched to Standard Notes.
- Not an archiver. Simplenote is for just that: simple markdown notes.
- Very quick sync, responsive UI, works good across Windows, Linux and Android, although missing support for graphical notes and more text formatting options
