Major new versions of Simplenote are now available for iOS 7, Mac, and Android.
All new design
When we first used iOS 7, we knew it would set new expectations for great apps — not just on iPhone and iPad, but across all platforms, including desktop and the web. We’ve redesigned Simplenote based on the principles we think are most important:
Focus on content. We wanted your thoughts and ideas to be front and center. The user interface has only what it needs, and otherwise stays out of your way.
Sense of place. Going from here to there inside an app should always leave you with a feeling of whereness. Where did I come from? Where am I going? Where did I end up? We paid careful attention to structure, placement, and animations to help maintain a sense of where you are at all times.
Harmony. The redesign is borderline stark, but there’s a lot going on to bring it all together: thoughtful typography, careful attention to spacing and grids, consistency where it matters, and a balance of subtlety and emphasis to help direct your attention.
Coming up next
In the coming weeks we’ll release minor updates and go into more detail about our design and development process. We hope you enjoy these new versions in the meantime.
