An overview of Simplenote Premium

The upcoming version of Simplenote allows you to buy a premium subscription at a competitive price. If you use Simplenote in your daily life, a premium subscription will give you additional power, reliability, and flexibility.

Our goal with the subscription is to add significant value to your experience. Of course, buying a subscription will also help us pay for our costs, and support future development.

It’s easy to subscribe: when the next update is released, simply visit the Options page on your iPhone or iPod touch and tap Premium Features. Wait for the price to show up, press the button, and one year of premium features will be yours. The cost will be $10 per year (US).

Premium features will initially include the following:

Simplenote goes international

 The somewhat delayed but still forthcoming update for Simplenote has been fully translated to French, German, Dutch, and Spanish, and partly translated to Italian. A huge thanks to the wonderful people who helped us! They put a lot of work into this, and we couldn’t have done it without them:  Alexandre Testu (French) Bernd Folberth (German) MichielContinue reading “Simplenote goes international”

Our new web app and an exciting partnership

We just flipped the switch on a shiny new Simplenote web app design made by Eric Grossnickle over at Mighty Dream! Eric is the creator of the popular Simplenote Restyled theme. Using Restyled as a starting point, he put together a new design that is just as simple as our old one, but far more elegant. He does great work. Thanks Eric! Here’s a screenshot:

Upcoming changes to Simplenote

While the next update for Simplenote awaits Apple’s approval, we’d like to share with you all the core changes we made to the app.

We’re very careful about making changes to Simplenote. We’ll never add new stuff just to make our feature list longer than someone else’s. Instead, we’re committed to keeping a laser sharp focus on what Simplenote does best: text notes.

Without further ado, here’s a screenshot of the new Options page:

Problems as a result of yesterday’s maintenance

Last night, from 5pm PST to 7pm PST, our backend systems had a period of maintenance followed by an update to prepare for the forthcoming release of Simplenote 2.14. Unfortunately, due to an error, some note data was lost.

We fixed this error and updated our systems as soon as we became aware of the problem. Thanks to the handful of people who helped verify a solution.

If you notice any data missing from the web versions of your notes, please launch Simplenote on your iPhone or iPod touch and perform a full sync. Your notes will be sent to the web version and fully restored.

A new Extra and another positive review

We’re happy to share a new, community-created Simplenote Extra that lets you sync notes between Simplenote and the popular Yojimbo text editor for Mac OS X. Check it out on the Extras page. Meanwhile, the fine folks at iProng magazine have reviewed Simplenote, saying it’s “much better over the default Notes app since there’s cable-free syncing. The future updates willContinue reading “A new Extra and another positive review”
