The built-in note-taking app on the iPhone may be good enough for most people, but for me, it is simply too basic. I needed a note-taking app that was simple and easy to use, but also had an online component so I could sync my notes to the cloud. I didn't need a complicated app like EverNote because I wasn't interested in audio or image storage.
Simplenote was my answer. The user interface is delightfully minimalist, and I love that you can see the first few sentences in a note on the list page. And as I mentioned, there's an online component that syncs and stores your notes so that they are easily accessible anywhere you have Internet access. The app itself is free, but I happily paid the extra for premium service that disables ads and offers automatic backup of your notes.
