Notes may be the most underappreciated native Apple app
I’ve tried many different note-taking apps over the years – everything from Evernote to Bear.
Apple Notes has long been an acceptable free option but a bit lacking in features compared to other note-taking apps.
But over the years Apple Notes has seen incremental improvements that, in my opinion, has made it the best note-taking app available for basic note-taking purposes.
Here’s what I appreciate about the app:
* Simple, clean interface. All features are easily accessible and easy to understand.
* Extremely easy to change the style and the size of text on the fly.
* NOT a markdown editor. (I understand this is a negative for some people. Personally, I am not a fan of markdown. I prefer using simple command key combinations to mark up text).
* Has gotten to the point that it has every essential note-taking feature (collaboration, locking, multiple windows, pinned notes, dark mode, etc.)
* Available for iOS, Mac, Internet browser.
* FREE if you already own Apple products (yes, I understand that’s a big *”if”* and that you’re probably not going to want to use this unless you use iOS / macOS devices as your primary devices).
For my purposes, Apple Notes is a nearly flawless app (aside from a lack of watchOS support). It’s really nice to have such a useful app come standard with every Apple device.
