I see lots of love for apps like Ulysses , Drafts and iA Writer. They all seem like great places to get writing work done. However, I have always come back to Simple Note for its, well, simplicity. It does the one thing I need it to do and it does it well. It provides a distraction free writing environment that allows markdown with with an easy to use tagging system.

All of my writing tasks start there, whether it’s frequently used email templates, website content, drafts of social media posts, blog articles or even longer form writing. It also syncs cross platform easily which is important to me as I use both a Mac and a PC in my everyday workflow.

There are two simple themes to choose from, light or dark and it has a focus mode that eliminates the sidebar.

Curious why I never hear anyone else ever singing its praises. Am I missing something?
