It is multi-platform, so you can keep notes in sync between all your devices, no matter if they're Windows/Linux/iOS/MacOS/Androis based. There's even a web-based version in case you don't have your devices with you. It's very easy to install and use... and it just works flawlessly!I LOVE the PIN access code in the Android version.

I've been trying to leave Evernote due to its sluggishness and Simplenote is great for that. Simplenote is very fast. It's perfect for distraction-free writing due to its minimalist. Simplenote has introduced me to the concept of Markdown which is really faster for typing compared to shortcuts or formatting options.
