In the few weeks since we relaunched Simplenote, usage has been skyrocketing. We’ve enjoyed some great press coverage across the web, along with strong user ratings and top 5 rankings.
A few problems remain, and we’re working hard to fix them. In particular, some people have reported unexplained note deletions, particularly from the Mac app. We’ve submitted possible fixes, and we’re preparing a solution that recovers these notes. This’ll be ready soon, and we’ll update this post when it’s ready.
Meanwhile, it’s taking a bit longer than we hoped to release the new Simplenote web app to everyone. We’re continuing to identify and fix some pesky layout issues with different browser versions.
Thanks to everyone who has helped spread the word about Simplenote. We’ll keep working to clean up these remaining issues, and then take a look at some of the top feature requests we’re seeing.
Update: A Simplenote Mac update is now live. Please update to this version. If you were affected by unexplained note deletions, and you’d like to access a backup of your account, you can sign in here and choose Download .zip from your account menu. All your notes (including those deleted in the past month) will start downloading as a .zip file. This is a manual process for now. We’re also working on a way to restore the affected notes automatically.
