Final Note: UberNote is shutting down on May,1st 2015

UberNote is shutting down on May, 1st 2015

UberNote started as a side project built in a townhouse north of Baltimore on nights and weekends.  We had our own personal need for a way to keep our notes in the cloud.  This was before mobile apps, smartphones and our biggest competitors had an online note product. 

As UberNote grew useful for our friends and family, we created a company and left our full-time jobs to travel down the path of a technology start-up.  Starting a company with some of your best friends is not something everyone gets to experience and I believe we truly valued it.

Since then, everyone has gone on to do truly awesome things since UberNote.  We have employees of Yahoo, Mozilla and MathWorks among our alumni.  One of the UberNote founders has also started a new start-up called Referral Rock for creating customer referral programs for small businesses.  UberNote had ups and downs but ultimately we wouldn't trade the experience for anything.  

Great… So now what happens to my notes
UberNote.com will run as until May 1st 2015.  Until then users can download their notes in various formats.  After that date, UberNote will no longer be accessible.

Here are the available formats:
  1. A HTML file for their own personal access.  You can load it up in a browser and user the browser's search.
  2. A JSON file - For the developer in you, you can use this to load your notes into an application of your own.

Finally, we would like to thank all our loyal users.  UberNote was shaped based on your feedback and usage.  Without all of you, UberNote would have never gotten out of Baltimore for the world to see.

How do you use UberNote?

There are many different ways to take notes.  Recently we took a look through our feedback inbox to see how people have been using UberNote recently.

Here are the top ones in no particular order (that were also expected)

1.  Simple lists (tasks, groceries)
2.  Research (combination of notes and bookmarks)
3.  Meeting notes
4.  Notes to self (ideas, small quotes)

Here are some one the odd ones we have heard of people using (that we did not expect)

1.  Keeping code snippets  (requests were made to allow for automatic indenting using {} and other software developing fun)
2.  Drafting Books (feature requests regarding structured ordering of notes inside folders, also sub folders for separate chapters)

There is no wrong way to use UberNote.  How do you use it differently?

Tags Have Been Moved (but now we have Folders)

One of the most obvious changes in the new version is that we moved Tags.  Your tags are still there and you are still able to easily tag and view your notes based on tags. Viewing your tags are available with one additional action through clicking the tag icon on the top of the page.

We made the decision to put the new organizational focus on Folders.  Folders were most requested feature from our users, which also introduced the "Unfiled" note category.  Folders and the Unfiled category help create a workflow for your notes, not unlike an email inbox.  Our intent is to make UberNote easier to use for more people.

We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused.  We are well aware that many people were accustom to the way UberNote used to work with Tags, but we hope that you will give Folders a try.  If not, you can still use Tags, they are just in a different location.
