The Simplenote Electron desktop application has received a major update yesterday. The new 2.0.0 version includes a rewrite “of some key parts of the app, as well as replacing the editor component and adding support for internal links”.

Simplenote is a note-taking application with optional Markdown support. There are applications for desktops (Linux, Windows and macOS), iOS and Android, and there’s also a web client. The Simplenote applications are free and open source software, but the server is not (though there’s no cost in using it to sync notes).

Originally created by Simperium back in 2008, Simplenote is developed by Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, Akismet, etc., since 2013.

Simplenote features include notes version history, instant search and search by tags, public note links, optional Makrdown support, different note views, light and dark themes, and the ability to export notes.

For the latest Simplenote 2.0.0, the application data flow was rewritten in order to remove races and some long-standing sync bugs. 

Simplenote 2.0.0 also comes with some new features, like a server connection indicator in the sidebar and support for internal / inter-note links. 

To add a link to an existing note, click the note you want to link to in the sidebar, then click the info (i) button in the top right-hand side of the Simplenote window. At the bottom of the info window you’ll see that note’s internal link that you can copy, and then paste in another note to link to it:

Another change is a new search interface that captures the browser find (Ctrl/Cmd + F) and displays a search UI that allows users to navigate through the results through left / right arrows that are displayed in the bottom right-hand side of the window:

It’s also possible to use Ctrl/Cmd + G and Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + G to navigate through the search results.

More changes in Simplenote 2.0.0:

  • Added support for importing .md files
  • Last synced time in note details
  • Better performance on long notes
  • Custom context menu
  • Make keyboard shortcuts aware of keyboard layout
  • Notifications when a note has changed on the server-side
  • Fix: Allow RTL formatting in Markdown mode

Download Simplenote

Simplenote is available for Windows, macOS, Linux (DEB, RPM, AppImage and as a precompiled archive), iOS and Android. To use it you need to create an account (or use an existing wordpress.com account).
