“Once I started using the shortcuts I started using this app a lot more, just writing down notes during a call or list things I need to get back to later on”

Does exactly what I need with no waste

“I love this app! It doesn't try to do All The Things, just an easily summoned UI to enter a quick note to a text file, and then it gets out of my way. Perfect!”
