Simplenote has recently become my most used note-taking app on the iPhone. It’s also the one I am likely to use most on the iPad (alongside Evernote, if I ever get the app to launch for me).
I’ve become a big fan of Simplenote’s (cough) simple approach and it’s clean OTA sync. When I need to I use JustNotes on my Mac laptop to work easily with files synced across from the iPhone, and vice-versa. I am using the app all the time on the iPad as well (it’s in my dock!), even its rather ugly pixel-doubled incarnation.
So I’m very glad to hear that there are plans for Simplenote for iPad – and that it won’t be too long before we see it.
Here’s a little more on that, straight from the Simplenote blog:
We’re really excited about the upcoming release of iPad, and we definitely plan to support it. Having said that, Simplenote for iPad won’t be available immediately. We’re going to spend some time working with the hardware first to make sure everything flows as expected.
After we do some more testing in the coming weeks, we’ll submit a basic, working version that should hopefully become available within a month or so. This version won’t have much extra in the way of features just yet, but with time it will evolve based on your feedback, just like we did with Simplenote for iPhone.
Mark me down as definitely very keen to see this one hit ‘the iPad App Store’ whenever the devs are ready. A good notes app – or often more than one - is always an essential for me on mobile devices.
