How do I restore notes That are more than 1 year old? I haven't used this app in over a year, and I know that I had some notes backed up to my sdcard, but now this version isn't recognizing them? And I can't browse to find them either, though I know where they are.

Epic SCUBA Diver

Amazing I use it all the time and it works better than anything else I've tried. I can easily organize ev e trying and anything then upload to my SD card. I have used it switching devices and I just store everything on Google drive then copy back on to my new device.

Leo Biggins

Very good Awesome app with backup and password protection. Best one I have had. New update fixed all the crash issues the old update caused and sped up the app significantly. Very fast fix, only two days.Would like to be able to order notes in any way as well. Can't recommend enough.

Fredrik Lindseth

The note taking app of your life This app has it all. Easy editing, it looks great, can do semi-fancy stuff such as checkbox todo-list. It's also takes automatic backups and you can export all of your notes to a txt file and import everything back into your next phone.

Denise Woznick Renstrom

I love this app !! Especially since they changed it back to a dark background.. Well you have a choice now.. I am so grateful now I can use it.. With my light sensitivity now I can enjoy this app again.. I want to thank the developers. This is the greatest app out there, everyone should use this..

Adib Azmi

How to donate? This app was and still is helping me a lot and make my works organized. I would like to buy the paid app with extra features such as ...perhaps red theme?

abhishek nanda

Sony Xperia J This app is truly amazing and easy to use. It's simple with Amazing features. This app really deserve 5/5. But please add an option to recover password.

Jordan Eller

Simple! Exactly what I was looking for after my phone forced me to use Evernote. No login, no accounts, just a simple notepad!

Andreas Friedle

Pretty basic but nice, misses two important features: 1) Please for the love of god restrict the left area to checkbox select only! Trying to hit a little box and accidentaly bringing up a note for the third time instead is annoying. 2) Empty trash button, don't make me select everything twice.

Bertrand K

Brilliant! Just what I have been looking for. An ads-free app with simple functions that it allows me to change font size to cater for long sightedness :-) Thank you!

Alanna Busby

Keeps crashing :( I have really loved this app, but as of lately I can't get it to work. Every time I open it, it freezes and then crashes. I can't even open my old files let alone make any new ones. Really sucks. Please fix and I can happily give this 5 stars.

Sergey Chubukov

Works well As long as you don't make any mistakes. Could really use an undo button.

Khaled Magdy

Needs work Needs a better UI and a proper backup system (either on device or online)

Scott Turner

Very Useful, love the dark theme I love the app especially the ability to create notes locally on the device.

Mihai Botez

Great app Great app, but I can't transfer the files from my old s3 to my new s5. Edit: I manged to transfer the files using a PC with the help of Yuli. Thank you very much for your assistance.

Taralina mitchell

Notes I like notes cause they could give good grades

BroJo Ghost

Just needs a way to backup Does not backup to internal storage. If your device doesn't have an SD card, you're screwed.

Ramdas Pawar

Great App This is the best notebook. No other app can match to this app. Everything in this app is great. I am using five note apps at a time but this is Excellent! If possible I would given 6 stars. Thank you very much!

A Google User

Thank you Thanks for changing the background back. That white was terrible. 5 stars and I'm keeping this app. Thanks for listening to ur feedback.

Ryan Cartwright

Almost perfect When erasing line or two sometimes it will hop around and erase something else. Been doing it for years on every phone. An undo feature would be nice as well.

Kathrine Sumati Brekke

Simple and functional Just what I wanted! A notebook.

jonathan adam

Great. Small. Would've given 5 stars except two things. I want to be able to shrink the widget to just one note, and I want an 'are you sure?' message before confirming delete.

paul sato

The best app there is for notes. Thanks Yuli

Boris Ovodov

Beauty in simplicity All simply and beautiful. That's what I was looking for. Thanks to the authors for that.


Simple & better It only 200kb of memory .....oh....thats awesome

Trey Triggs

Lost all my notes Ok so this is the second time i have lost all my notes. I used the back up feature and the restore feature is unresponsive! ..........................................................Hey guys at yuli ... I have had this app for ages since about 2010 or '11 . I accumulated notes from then up until a week ago. I reset my unit and all of my precious work seems to be lost. Is there a way that you guys can help resolve this issue?

Sofia Messenger

Love it I can't wait to tell all my friends about it

Marcos Rojas

Best App Yet! Simple to use

Buzz Lange

Really the most useful app on my phone.

Ria Gohil

Notes Using notes reminded me all the important memories I had to deliver or buy say for example a shopping list or a scheduled day. I would definitely rate this app 5 stars and I recommend it to everyone!????????

Dakyrion Williams

This is awesome I use to know how much it is on store

A Google User

Perfect simplicity Has password security for notes.

Mark J. Brayer

Decent simple note APK Despite new devices including multi-featured Memo apps this APK is still my goto note app. It's simple, clean and easy to use.

A Google User

Excellent Luv it, luv it, luv it!!! Best Note program available. But for some reason it opens automatically every morning at 2 am. If my screen is locked, it is always open the next time I go to use my phone. Had DInc2 but it also happens on Droid DNA and now on my Samsung Galaxy S5. Also, please add a calculator function. ;-)

angie Turner

Questuons. Questions How do you even get to the writung screen? Whenever i go into the app all i see is, "No notes here." If you'd tell me i would give it a five star. But im not givung it one till this is fixed. Does it not work on phones? Tell me where that thing is. Ty.

william johnston

Can't get it back on what do I do, I did an update

Rob Simpson

Keeps deleting itself Getting a bit sick of having to re install this app - this is the last time!

Rui Santiago

Backups to external card Backup to external card not working.

Igor Oleynick

Does not remind Reminder doesn't work last month or two... Have forgot to do some important things :(

Biju Philip

Undo Option Hi... I would appreciate if you could add an undo option so that we can just get back the accidently made changes before saving...

Joseph Rausch

Stupid design, garbage app!!!!! If you hit enter after a couple words the entire note gets set to the level of the note so when you click it there's no note to be had it was all saved as just the heading. There is no instruction or any way to reverse the hour I spent writing my note just to find out I can't see the entire heading!

Genny Stewart

Helpful Exactly what I wanted in a note app. No annoying ads. Just typing and filing.

Michael Florindi

Just 1 issue I wish there was a save feature before changes are made. I constantly hit back space instead of Carriage return and blow out info I had looked up. Or I back space and S5's hold feature makes it backspace like a bat out of "h" and wipes out the note. I'd like for the change to be ignored if I close without a save. Or an undo. Anything than having to backup after ever note addition or change.

Asko Noormets

Clean and effective!!! Great note taking tool! I tried a bunch of notepads but this has the light footprint, efficient use of screen space, and all the sharing options that I need. Well done!

Dietrich Vivier

Suggested enhancement Cool, however Labels cannot be sorted, text size settings does not work, alphabetical and reverse alphabetical sort orders are switched around.


It's a great app, but... I put a passphrase on one of my very important notes and I forgot the password... Is there any way I can get the password or open up the note?


Helpful app Made it much better now I found out I can have a widget on my home screen

Autumn Kelly

Meh It's alright, but It keeps freezing on me. I have plenty of storage left in my phone, so that's not the problem.

Cherri Kyleton

Works very well Does pretty much everything I need it to. It has a nice, clean interface. The only improvement I can see for now is minor: it'd be really handy if a 12-hour time setting could be available.

Ahmedali Mandviwala

Good simple app..if only there was a "save changes" before closing the note option

Carl Schoner

Simple and very useful, but one question... This all apparently stores all data in internally in an SQL database. When I delete a note, it disappears from my note folder but STILL shows up in the "All" folder AND in my export files! How can I delete a file for good?

Nitrode Twofiftysix

You will lose data Lack of undo combined with inability to disable autosave, plus modern mobile's incredibly twitchy and awkward text selection, cursor movement and clipboard heiroglyphs makes it EXTREMELY easy to accidentally delete text and never get it back. Plus, not even any way to open/save standard ordinary text files. Come on, even Windows Notepad of all things, and the text editor that was built into PalmOS ages ago absolutely blow this and every other Android text editor completely out of the water.

Connor Delaney

This app was really awesome at first, I was under the impression my data was backed up to my SD Card, however this wasn't the case. I kept all of my passwords encrypted on the card, im rather annoyed as my phone recently broke and my encrypted note is nowhere to be seen.

Adam Gregory

Great note app, works wonderful. Simple to use, I really love the archive ability. The only thing I wish it would do is confirm that you want to delete a note instead of it being gone the instant you hit the delete button... Until then just going to try to be careful with my notes.

Glenwing Kyros

Pretty good. Could use some design work. An undo/redo button is necessary. It is very bad to leave this out. It's also probably a good idea to make a separate text field for the title instead of just using the first paragraph of the note. Also I know you're trying to be minimalist but it would be nice to have some BASIC formatting support. Boldface, underline, and italics at minimum. Strikethrough and left/right/center justify would be good bonuses. Also in the main list I'd rather have my note titles run multiple lines than get cut off with "..."

Lyall van der Linde

There's a few things wrong with this app. - there is no automatic backups even though the app says it does. - you can delete protected notes this is a huge problem!!! Becos of ur app i lost important notes

David Thomas

No real encryption Good for shopping lists but not secure. The lock feature merely prevents text from being displayed in the app until the passphrase is entered. The data is stored in the clear!

Ralph Riordan

LAST UPDATE NOVEMBER 4, 2014 NO ADS Good and small notepad. Tab S 8.4 Android 5.0.2

Xen Star

Good basic app Good app, pretty basic and reliable. Recommended for its limited space usage and simplicity.

Jonah Brooks

Cool,Cool This works perfectly.

Jo Sparks

Locked Notes The app is mostly good- but after the app recently updated, I lost a bunch of locked notes. I double checked the passwords- I had them on paper- and they were right, but despite that, they wouldn't let me in. Otherwise, very helpful app!

Marko Ristic

As simple as it gets You can write notes and then you can also read them. Like real life notes!

Matias Hung

awesome app but there is no way of recovering a note if u forgot ur passphrase

Ward W

Highly useful, feature-rich, but lightweight note taking and sharing app! This app is really well done. You can back up, share, import/export notes, which are easy to create and organize. Everything is pretty intuitive (except maybe the category feature, which I didn't even realize existed until months after using!). The developer did a great job anticipating useful features, and the app needs minimal permissions, and takes up less than 1 MB!

Christopher Elliott

Very pleased Very minimal but highly functional for its purpose, creates auto restore points on SD card which is invaluable

Nada Al-Najjar

I lost all my notes and backups but I never deleted them I just moved the file and now they are all gone and I can't find them they got deleted but I never deleted them

A Google User

All Good!!! Love this app does everything they say its suppose to do, htc desire 510


Awesome I set my fantasy football picks in it my friends can't get in it

Lorenzo Johnson

Malware Suspicious App auto starts at 2am every morning. Why? That's malware behavior? No telling what information the programmer is transferring

Лео Лепотица

It would be nice if we have option to sync our notes online

Vasil Gospodinov

One suggestion Hi ! I use it a lot. Please add the ability to search in the note and to reduce the font size to 3 points ( so people won't be able to see what I am typing).

benz8787 Benzi

Amazing app This app is really very very helpful and very very good. Also it is very easy to use. Nice job !!

Johnny Pumphandle

Simple and easy My favorite app to keep notes. Subjects are displayed to pick the details.

King Addi

This should be a stock app Just recently switched from iOS and this is the closest thing I can find to replicate the experience. Very excellent app. The developer had the brains not to add an intrusive ad-banner like all the other note taking apps. I hope that for the future release the developer will add support for all email clients (i.e K9). By the way i would donate to this developer if the option is available


4 Stars Perfect, does what it says in the tin! But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can we have an 'Are you sure you want to delete this?' pop up and a back button to undo deleting writing because I keep accidentally deleting things!!

Ryan Bradshaw

Clever restore feature A password protected note crashed and it said the password was incorrect although it wasn't so I couldn't open it. I deleted the app in frustration.. Having lost all my password protected info.. And I've just reinstalled and used the restore feature and it's all working now.. Very clever!

Nathan Gunderson

Didn't back up correctly. I backed it up. Then when I reset my phone there must've been an update because the backup is now not just plain text so mine doesn't work!

Love this one Though my first install 20 phones ago was messed with in the NYC subway by one of the blue crew, a large black man wearing a snuff shirt at a stop in Brooklyn.

Jonathan Grams

It's so easy to use. My only issues are the absence of the archive folder, how the trash folder just moves the things you want gone, that you can only make two additional folders, and that you can't rename folders, or I've just been unable to figure it out.

Corey Borger

Help I recently had to factory reset my phone. I backed up my notes file to my Google Drive and email. Last time this happened, I simply moved the backed up notes file into the Notes app folder. This time around, the Notes app folder is nowhere to be found and my notes file isn't recognized in other notes apps. Any solution?

Tilly Potter

Great, but.... This app was everything I was looking for, but the only setback is not being able to set a custom reminder for anything above a month in the future :(

Ubaldo Villaseca V.

One of the few apps I could fully recommend No unwanted services running in background. No microtransactions. No abusive permissions. No privacy concerns. Does exactly what I need. Why so few apps are like this one?

Tangerine 2.0

Honestly the best note app This app cuts the crap I don't care about and does what I want. You're a saint!

Leo Biggins

New Phone So I just got a new a phone, sheets the easiest way to transfer all my notes to the new one? Also, could we please have the ability to custom order the order of notes instead of alphabetically or by time?

Carl Braun

Sharing with multiple devices I like the ease of putting things into the app. It is simple and quick! I would love to be able to make a note in my tablet, and have it appear in my phone device for the next day!

Priit Ruttas

Great work! Especially love because of dark theme. Would be even more happy, if theme would be totally black and font a bit changeble or mono, then looks much more professional in my eyes?or it's done already, look that new pics look black here? May-be I have to update app.

Anthony Hart

Lost everything..where are stored files Phone was dying. Copied everything. Cannot find files to get them back. Emailed developer developer twice but no response. Anyone know or can help?

Miljenko Šuflaj ml.

Excellent This is my go-to notes app. Over the few years that I've been using Android, I've always used this app for notes. I got used to it, it's quick and casual, and I'd never run into issues.
