The New Simplenote, Now Available

Great news, iPad and iPhone users: the all-new Simplenote is now available, together with a complete new webapp, full support for iOS 4 and tags. I've been beta testing the new version, and it's awesome. Really, a great update now live in the App Store. For free.

The new version (labelled 3.0.3) introduces brand new features that make Simplenote a fresh new experience. A new icon (lovely), a new UI, tags for posts (a much requested feature), fullscreen mode and easy note sharing. It's very easy, and a killer feature for users like me, who need to share notes and documents with a team.

Simplenote is available here for free. A premium subscription is available as in-app purchase at $11.99. Check out the first screenshots and changelog below, and stay tuned for our full review coming tomorrow.
