User reviews of Denote
One of the best Dropbox sync note-taking app in Android! Better stability in syncing than others. I use this app in Galaxy S2 syncing to Dropbox and use ResophNotes in Windows PC syncing to Dropbox Denote folder and SimpleNoteApp.com syncing off. In Mac, I use nvALT syncing to Dropbox Denote folder with simple note syncing off. By doing it, you can create cross-platform note-taking among Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows and Mac via Dropbox syncing. You need to turn simplenote sync option off in Resophnotes and nvALT for preventing duplicated notes situation. Denote is working nice in compatibility with ResophNotes and nvALT.

(Was) Near perfect Edit: Switched to an S5 and everything ran fine for awhile. My phone is now running stock Android 4.4.2 and Denote refuses to even open. The app crashes immediately & files are blank in Dropbox. :::: Since Epistle went belly up, I've been looking for another clean and simple text editor with Dropbox support. Denote fits the bill perfectly and looks very similar to the dead app. The only downside I see is that the .txt files lose their formatting when opened in Windows, hence the one star being removed.

Loses data. Same as many reviewers. Any file that's been edited on my pc gets overwritten with a blank one as soon as denote touches it. Big problem.

Lost all data Created file in denote, added text. Edited file on computer, added more text. Opened again in denote - blank file. All my data was erased. I don't trust it as far as I can throw it. Uninstalling.
