We’re proud to announce that a major new version of Simplenote is just around the corner. It should be available in a matter of days. In the meantime, we’re temporarily absent from the App Store. We apologize for that. We encountered some unfortunate problems with a new App Store release process.
But the update is coming, and soon! We’re not revealing all the details until it’s live, but we’d like to at least prepare you for what to expect.
Simplenote will be unavailable in the App Store for a short period of time. We apologize to our potential new users. You’re welcome to create an account in the meantime and we’ll let you know when we’re back.

This maintenance is theContinue reading “Some scheduled maintenance”

In particular, we’ll improve the quality of someContinue reading “Support for Apple’s latest updates”
We’ve decided to focus full time on Simplenote. Henceforth, we’re elevating Simplenote from its humble status as one of several side projects to the lofty position of core product and service. This has several implications. Administratively, and less importantly, we founded a new company. Simplenote is now brought to you by Simperium (@simperium on Twitter).Continue reading “Simplenote, full speed ahead!”
