We have a great Simplenote for Mac client, and a super clean web version, but nothing first-party for Linux. If anyone is experienced with Linux desktop development and would be interested in creating something extremely minimalist like our Mac app please get in touch!

    1. I haven’t tried desktop Linux in a year or two, if I did it now it would probably be as a full-screen Parallels instance, so would still get power management, wifi, etc from the host OS X.

    1. I’ve been a huge fan of Simplenote for a long time – it was one of the first, and most used apps on my iPhone 3! Now I’m using Ubuntu, nvPY sits open on my desktop everyday, and is invaluable as resource. However, even the developer admits, it’s not very pretty!

      I’m no developer, but I’ve heard tell (from Canonical) that transforming an app from Android to Ubuntu isn’t very difficult. If I had the skill, it would the first thing I’d do!

      As for Simplenote itself, the only feature I’d like to see, is the ability to choose where information is stored if possible, perhaps our own NAS.

  1. I’m not a developer, but I do use Linux Mint. I’m not a command line guy, so that wouldn’t be useful for me. A version for Ubuntu/Linux Mint would be great.
