When I last spoke about Cloudup, I had mentioned that it was one of two great acquisitions by Automattic in 2013. The second acquisition was Simplenote, a fantastically simple and free note taking service which effortlessly syncs in real-time across official apps on Mac, iOS, and Android, with support for third-party apps across other systems, and a web app accessible from any browser.
I use Simplenote for a variety of things, from todo lists, to meeting notes, to quick and simple blog post rough drafts (like this one was a few hours ago). If I need to store text in some fashion, I almost always use Simplenote, because I know I’ll be able to find it, no matter what device I have in my hands. To say that Simplenote is part of my daily life would be an understatement.
If you’re looking for a new way to keep your notes and lists organized and synced, try Simplenote!
I don’t forget to mention the quietly awesome Simperium that makes syncing awesome.
Of course! I’m slowly drafting a post for that too. 🙂
