    Simplenote vs Handle opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments
    JohnFastman

    Simplenote is a very basic note-taking app that supports text only. Handle aims to be a to-do list manager with calendar integration. So the two aren't really at all aimed for the same needs. Presently (2017-02-26), Handle doesn't support Android, although they promise to change that soon.

    Handle does not support note-taking on its own, only when coupled with a calendar event or a to-do. Simplenote does not support to-dos and does not display inbox or calendar functions.
