Two years after Simplenote.app for Mac was released with broken search it is now fixed in version 1.2. A product I rely on is not only alive, it’s even improved.
This was a significant rewrite and there is still lots of basic work to do. Tags don’t autocomplete (I think they used to in the prior release and they do on iOS). You still can’t apply tag changes to a group of notes. There’s no export of notes as text files from App. There’s no markdown support (not a priority for me but iOS version has it) and of course no support for images.
I haven’t used it long enough to spot any sync errors — recent versions of Simplenote were very reliable.
I hope this is a sign that Simplenote has a future. Now if they would only figure out a way for me to pay for it…
