Summary

With simple notes, you can take and save notes. It's that simple.

Other note taking apps have features of mostly little use, ones that can get in the way of usability and convenience. I have always enjoyed the simplicity of the Apple Notes app, both in design and usability, so I decided to base this extension on that app. Hope you enjoy!

Note: This extension does not sync with your Apple notes.

Very useful little app. In these days where you have multiple webpages open it is handy to have one location to jot down relevant info. It is especially useful for webforms where you can inadvertently hit the back button and lose everything. With Simple Notes you type out what you want to say and then copy/paste into the box. Perfect.
