Simplenote has an externally accessible API, allowing other clients to be written: OS X Dashboard widget DashNote; nvPY, a cross-platform SimpleNote client; amongst others. In addition, the OS X program Notational Velocity, and the Windows utility ResophNotes, can also sync with Simplenote.
Simplenote was originally developed by Simperium in 2008.
Automattic acquired Simperium and Simplenote on January 24, 2013. In September, Automattic released an Android version, and later relaunched Simplenote, suspending the premium service and removing ads for all users.
In May, 2016, an official client for Linux(Debian) for Simplenote was released.
Automattic opened its source code for its iOS, Android, and macOS Simplenote apps in August 2016.
The application was reviewed by Mac Life, reviewed in the book Lifehacker: The Guide to Working Smarter, Faster, and Better, and covered in the book The Business of IPhone and IPad App Development.
