If you’re in the habit of taking notes while you work on your computer, chances are you use Notepad, or some other note-taking programs that can save notes onto your hard drive. But what if the precious file with your notes in it gets deleted? You can imagine how drastic that loss can be.
One of the best solutions to this problem is to store important notes online. While such applications do exist, many tend to be too fancy and bandwidth-hogging. Note-taking is meant to help you, not slow you down. Today I came across basic note-taking online service SimpleText.ws
It is a web tool designed to store “˜human sized’ text i.e. text which you write as notes, and not as lengthy thesis papers. While the site is secure, the author suggests people not to store any sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) on the site – better safe than sorry.
To get started, create an account by clicking the “˜Sign In’ button on the homepage. If you have a Google account, you can use it to sign in. Here’s how the note panel looks like:
As you can see, the entire panel has a very simple text storage interface, much similar to Notepad. You can type your notes and not worry about losing them. Unlike manual syncing, SimpleText.ws merges your changes so you’ll never lose data.
- Take notes and store them digitally.
- Simple and clutter free design.
- For basic writing and notes. No for huge files.
