ResophNotes is a straight-forward text-only note taker where the first line of a note becomes the title in the note list. Can sort by title or last modified date and able to email/print notes from app. Includes an easy indent system and support for markdown (text-to-HTML conversion) with preview. Can recover delete note(s), import text (.txt) file(s), import Outlook exported .csv file and Toodledo Notebook .csv file.

The program can sync securely online with the Simplenote service, which itself has a long list of possible software beyond ResophNotes, including for mobile devices like the iPhone, Android, and others.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: Automatic relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch ResophNotes.exe.

Optionally, to save each note as an individual text file (the default database file is not easily readable by other programs), create a folder (e.g. Notes) and enter the name of that directory into the File Directory blank under the Storage tab (relative pathways like ..\Notes work fine). Existing notes in this folder will be automatically added.

After writing my previous comment, I stumbled upon iA Writer ( which turned into my current favorite Android editor/noter... =)

They're all good choices @Midas thanks, I'll be trying them, I think Android Apps are yet to evolve a lot

@xor: Monospace ( was very promising, before the dev decided to switch from Dropbox to Google Drive syncing -- I keep still but don't use much anymore.

Mnote ( is a oldie goldie for Simplenote sync. Writeily ( and neutriNote ( appear to be the next big ones to keep in check, IMHO.

Everyone else will just recommend Onenote and/or Evernote... ;)

since ResophNotes seems to rule at the desktop but most of my note-taking work has to be done on the go via mobile I'd love to hear sugestions for Android because after trying SimpleNote, Notes, Draft and some other millions-downloads-wellknownOnes... nah nah, still doing better with WorkFlowy and its intuitive tagging, searching, filtering, exporting, syncing. It's not just about taking notes, it's all about using notes taken in a more productive ,manner. I still wanna sync via DropBox, though.

xor: WorkFlowy is nice (handles nested lists better than many tools) but think I'll stick with Resophnotes just because it plays very nice with other tools.

anybody ever tried WorkFlowy? I've neen using it for a while and decided to pour my while brain into it, I'm using android version in my phone, desktop version has way more features and they both sync seamlessly almost in real time :)

Simplenote official and open source clients for Windows and Linux released on March 29 (with markdown support). A portable version would be nice, altough ResophNotes is still useful...


Midas 2016-04-01 11:48

I fully agree. Resoph is one of the most interesting note takers I have found to date. It's a real shame it isn't being developed anymore... :(

I set this program aside for a long time but recently came back to it for cell phone integration with Simplenote. The markup capability is very useful.
