Still works great for me!
by slamdunk406 on 2020/09/08 05:04
I’ve been using BluLines for several years and it still works great for me! I have the free version, so I have to deal with adds, but aside from that, it’s great. And if you want to get rid of adds, you can always purchase the upgraded non-ads version. Just wanted to put the plug in for this app since I’ve seen a lot of overly negative reviews. The app is still great for taking and organizing notes. Backing up is also pretty easy.
Highlighting and enhanced text
by Ohitsjoy on 2020/08/26 11:26
I have been using this app for several years. I believe I have purchased additional features. However, I find that features I enjoyed I no longer have - such as the ability to highlight in several colors, colored text, insertion of date etc. However I am not sure if I turned off something in error. I contacted Support but no one has reached out. This is quite disconcerting to me. Kindly assist.
Can’t reload
by mcgyve on 2020/04/22 16:16
Been using for years now, can’t reload data from a backup whether it’s BluLines or Dropbox Very disappointed, all my equipment data is sitting there but won’t reload
Wiped out
by Wiped All Out on 2020/04/08 20:18
I’ve had this app for several years and when I updated it, all of my notes were wiped clean... nothing left. I’ve emailed their support email and have heard nothing back yet. Hopefully I will.
Backups not working
by Francophilee on 2020/03/23 21:38
2020 version updates - backup files are 176 kB ie data is not getting backed up in iCloud drives nor sent as email - is it bug or intentional for free version
UNSAFE
by Not much to it on 2020/02/13 12:25
Test it first. Back up doesn’t work. Eventually you will lose everything.
If no problems, no problems.
by Hero_Underground on 2020/01/21 22:58
I have used this app for at least four and a half years. I have used it for personal use and several hobbies that I have wanted to document along the way. I recently had a lot of notes building up and I knew I needed to do a backup. I did my normal backup on this app and shortly after everything was wiped out. I didn’t think anything about losing everything because I knew I had a backup. I tried to reload my backup multiple times and I got nothing. I reset my phone. I tried to load my backup with WiFi on and off and no luck either way. Still nothing. I thought I would take my issue up with an email to the company. I sent them an email a week ago hoping to get a response. Honestly, since this company is a tech company I am disappointed with their customer service option. I have only been able to contact them with email and no live chat support. So far, they have not contacted me about my backup or the issues I have had. I loved this app and I would have easily given them a five star review until I had problems and they ditched me, the customer.
Navigate
by Lou&# on 2020/01/20 21:33
I thought this app would work for me. I showed certain items I needed as well as color & sizing of text also bold, underline, & etc that I wanted. Said go to features which is not in the free version. If the free version doesn’t have that then I need to move on & find one that does cause that could be a deal breaker. Pls advise.
Perfection many functions

LOUD ADS!
by Jayjay434 on 2019/12/06 22:24
Every time I open the app a VERY OBNOXIOUS LOUD VIDEO AD plays with no way to change in settings. I deleted the app because of this. I could never open the app when in public. I get having ads, but this is just rude!
Info added isn’t staying saved
by Hurricane3! on 2019/11/25 01:50
I use this app all the time & come back & make changes to notes, add new notes, rearrange things & when I come back to the not it doesn’t have the information saved. Please get this fixed as I use this app constantly. I will happily change my rating after its fixed I just need it to keep all the information i am changing on the app.

Is this an ads app or a notes app?
by Plumb bacon on 2019/08/29 20:47
Advertisements all the time. Many with sound that interrupt what you’re listening to. Many ads are long and they purposely hide the x so you can’t skip it. Many times when you skip it you end up getting sent to the ad page. It’s gotten extremely annoying. Do not get.
Inappropriate Ads Popping Up
by Financial Blitz on 2019/06/19 20:43
Pop up ads are bad enough but recently the same inappropriate ad has been popping up on my phone. I could not immediately delete or close it and the ad automatically started with sound. I originally got this app when no adds existed. I am looking for a new app.
The ads are full screen & insanely obnoxious
by a sad former user on 2019/06/08 13:44
Don’t even bother. Loved this app before it decided to ruin itself. Full screen ads that lock until you hit “install” on whatever video game spam they’re selling. Great job, team. Fantastic ruination of your product.
Gone South
by CaptData on 2019/05/05 10:46
No support. Emailed them several time with NOTHING response. Can’t backup from the backup file. Lots of data on the line. It worked when I bought it doesn’t anymore. I will NEVER buy any of their apps and suggest you don’t either.
Blue lines is great. Love the folders and ability to back up your info, in multiple ways.
by Gemini178 on 2019/04/28 12:38
I love this app. My only criticism, is that I had to repurchase my lifetime no ads, feature, after the upgrade last year. They did send me a code to re-activate for free but the code expires if not used promptly and they have not sent me a new one. So, I just paid another $4 for no ads. My first purchase for no ads lasted 5 years. Atv$1 a year that’s not bad. Hopefully Bluelines support will refund my $4 in time and be true to their promise of “life time” no ads; regardless of whether you promptly use their reinstall code. Outside of that issue with support, that App is Great!!!!! * * * * *
Lost notes found!
by beckydawn on 2019/04/15 13:52
Thought I’d lost all of my notes after the last upgrade but remembered to turn the phone off for a soft reset and there they were 🙃 AGAIN!!! I have so many notes in each folder that it would be wonderful if there was a way to search for the one particular item I’m looking for instead of searching the whole list - it’s too cumbersome the way I have to do it now- otherwise I love this app ❤️❤️❤️ and would give it 5 stars ⭐️
Use at your own risk
by Amorriz on 2019/03/23 17:38
I haven’t used this app in years. I’m still angry about all the notes I’ve lost while using this app. Apple notes has come a long way and is still my reliable source for retaining all my crucial notes. Ultimately no one app is trustworthy, so always backup your notes no matter what you use. Apps like these are usually vulnerable when an update occurs. If data is lost, there’s almost no way to recover this information leaving you helpless. So I caution anyone to trust especially a third party app. The features they offer are great, but none of that matters with no data.
Done
by pokefan749 on 2019/03/13 16:57
Several times I have spent a good amount of time making important changes to current lIsts only to have them revert back to where I started and I lost everything. I’m looking for a new app now. I used to like this app but with this and all the ads that won’t go away I'm just done.
App suddenly won’t work
by Briwha6 on 2019/02/23 22:10
I foolishly trusted this app with a good bit of info and it suddenly will not open and I no longer have access to the info / notes. I’ve emailed support multiple times and they have not responded. I recently downloaded the latest update to the app, hoping that maybe it was a bug they had fixed, but I’m still getting the same problem. I won’t use it anymore, but I want my notes back.
ALMOST perfect!!
by Ashygirl2005 on 2019/02/02 02:16
As a writer I use this app and my notes tend to get pretty long… it would be useful if you added a feature that took you to the bottom of a note you were writing, since some of my notes are well over 20k words and all that scrolling is just a pain. Thanks!

So annoyed!
by IamRaynaBrown on 2018/12/24 08:51
I'm really annoyed. I use this app daily, several times a day. I have hundreds of notes. First of all, I lost a great deal of notes in the upgrade a while ago. :-( Second, THE ADDS!!! I paid for the lifetime upgrade when I first got the app. I am an artist and use this for lyric support and now have to wait for the add to pull up my lyrics etc. even when you X out it still goes to the add and you have to go back to the app. Either the adds go or I go or at least refund my money for the upgrades. I am also frustrated with the fact that everything triples and quadruples when I try to sync between devices. Looking for a new app to utilize!!! Very disappointed!!
Browser connect feature gone ?
by BrowserConnect on 2018/12/22 18:09
This app used to be able to open a connection to edit your notes in a web browser. It was the feature that kept me using this app. Is this feature gone in the recent updates ?
I loved this app when it was still NOTES but...
by dianne0830 on 2018/12/04 03:33
App has turned crappy over the years. Ads will appear everywhere and it’s not encrypted. Time to look for another similar app.
What the hell?
by Eme Lin on 2018/10/08 06:21
As a poet and songwriter I’ve used this app for years and basically watched it turn to crap. When I have an idea to write something I have to wait to exit out of a video, so bloop there goes the idea. I used to love the feature to lock my notes but honestly I find myself just using apple’s built-in notes app because my ideas are money that I rather not lose. I hate to do this because I have enjoyed this app for years and have enjoyed it. This update doesn’t even save my font settings. I went as far as rewriting everything in a journal because I can’t deal with how annoying this app is to use anymore.
Kicked out
by beyoutiful128 on 2018/10/08 02:17
I love this app. I use it very often but after the update it kicks me out of the app when I am scrolling through my notes. It is very frustrating. Please fix this issue so I can give 5 stars. Thank you!
Would be perfect if...
by KJEpic on 2018/10/07 21:00
The app sometimes deletes notes by itself. Would rate 5 if fixed.
Run, run, run
by Wichita guitar picker on 2018/10/07 03:27
I purchased this app when it first came out. After paying to remove the annoying ads years ago... they still stick annoying ads requesting one to pay $3.99 to remove them. It’s a scam.
No Predictive Text
by CLI-user on 2018/09/30 14:38
A recent version of this got rid of predictive text, so that now even the standard Notes app is easier to use. Why? Also, it takes an extra keystroke to access the custom keys, which use to be displayed at all times just above the keyboard. Can I roll this back to a previous version?
Love the app but.......
by Dmailmn on 2018/09/14 18:17
The older version you could change the background colors and font colors to your own likings. I used a black background and neon green letters as I play in a band and in dark rooms so it worked perfectly for that. Now, with the update, I don’t have that option anymore. Or if so, I need to know where it is.
Quick and clean
by Scamel61 on 2018/09/10 20:31
Did not like this app with adds but it is perfect now. I don’t have to refresh my memory about how to use the app every time I open it. Make new notes easy. Find old notes easy.
Love the ability to have notes in a category
by YorkiMama on 2018/09/06 07:37
I looked at several “note” programs, and this was the best one that didn’t just have specific notes, but the ability to have many notes listed under a category. I’ve used BluLines for years and love it!
The Best File System App

Stuck on “Processing...”
by BMAC200 on 2018/09/04 15:57
I went to open my notes app and it is stuck on “Processing...”. I have notes in there that I do not want to lose but can’t get to them. I emailed support almost 2 weeks ago and have received zero response. I am running the most recent version which was just updated yesterday. Please help.
Don’t use
by KimKAKD on 2018/09/03 18:01
I have had this app for a while and really liked using it, but I have now lost all of my data TWICE just from updating the app. I won’t be making this mistake again. No longer using this app because I can’t trust it to keep my data.
Absolutely essential
by Miguelando on 2018/09/02 18:47
This app is absolutely essential to everything I do. For everyone who needs to keep track of more than a few things and stay organized, this app is the way to go.
Option to open at most recent entry
by J McBride on 2018/08/17 19:28
This app is solid, I like it lots. I updated recently (after probably a long time) and found that every file now opens at the beginning/top of the entry, whereas before it opened at the bottom/end. I have a couple very long notes, and now I have to scroll all the way down to make an addition. I liked it better before, I’d love it it could be changed back or otherwise an option added in settings (if it is an option and I’m not seeing it, my apologies). Thanks!
Issue Update
by 1nothappy12 on 2018/08/16 13:42
Cannot restore backup after installing the latest update. Crashes each time I try. Please fix!
Lost everything
by Lahsbsbna on 2018/08/15 00:22
After years of using this app, I can’t access all of my saved passwords and notes because of the new update. it is just stuck on a “processing” message. disappointing, hopefully they find a fix for this soon
Lost my saved data
by Muzaffar Khan on 2018/08/12 12:31

Missing Notes
by A Student in college on 2018/08/12 03:41
After this recent update all my notes are gone. I followed the on screen instructions to backup my info. The backup is completely blank. Please help
Horrible App update, lost 5+ years of notes!
by Dippalupscious on 2018/08/11 05:54
I have been a longtime user of this app and praised its security features! As of recently, I never had to update my phone or the app for that matter since I'm using an iPhone 6 there's no urgency for me. However, when the instance I finally did decide to update things and launched the app, everything was lost! All my notes for those 5+ years, gone. I noticed other users experiencing the same thing and hoped to wait it out for a new patch thereafter and even decided to email their customer service from their designated website. No patch, and no response from that email. I had teetered on the idea from just erasing my phone completely and backing up from 3 months ago just to see if I can my notes back, but after much research it would be fruitless. I'm honestly disappointed in how things turned up in this and it doesn't seem they are in the same urgency to realize how their users benefited from their app for a long time just to lose it all from an update. Kinda lost a lot of points in my book. I hope things can be rectified from this and that they are working on correcting this issue. Fingers crossed.
My notes disappeared
by JOE LN on 2018/08/08 20:49
I went onto the app, new screen, I followed instructions to back up data. Went to reload does not reload. Please help me, I have every customer contact info. on this app. I did not remove the app,. Please advise as soon as someone can.
Lost all notes to recent update.
by TRez058 on 2018/08/08 04:25
I used to love this app until the most recent update. I lost all my data/notes and I have not been able to retrieve my information yet. This is very frustrating as I used the app often. Please help!
This is a great app but...
by DeLiciouSVixen on 2018/08/02 18:32
I purchased this app when it first came out and there were no ads and it wasn’t a cheap app. I just now had to pay again to take the ads away. That seems ridiculous. You really should grandfather your old customers into the no ads plan. We shouldn’t have to pay twice. 🙄 Especially when the app was expensive to start.
Lost All My Data
by Ron Owen on 2018/08/02 07:43
Uploaded the new version and ALL my data was lost and the developer couldn’t retrieve it. Very dissatisfied!
My Notes are Back!!!
by GypsyChic on 2018/07/30 23:53
UPDATE: Thank you! Thank you! Whatever you did in this last update yesterday finally fixed the bug that was preventing me from restoring all of my notes back onto my iPhone 6+ BluLines App. So happy to have all of my notes back on both of my devices! It looks like the App on my two Apple devices will no longer Sync with one another though? I will check on that later this week. For now, just wanted to express my gratitude to the developers for sorting the bug out. ******************************************** New Version/Update Lost all my Notes on my iPhone 6+ My old iPad 3 is still running an old version of the BluLines App with my notes. I loved how the iCloud would sync my updated notes between my iPad / iPhone 6+. Unfortunately, the App updated on my phone to new version last night & lost all my notes. I’ve tried to restore from iCloud & from emailed backup file, but neither worked. The App crashed, so I deleted / downloaded fresh & now it won’t even open on my phone. SO frustrating, as I don’t always carry my old iPad with me & I have used this app pretty much exclusively for notes (going back at least 5 years I think). I really loved this App in the past. Please fix it, so I can try again to restore via iCloud sync from my old version of App.
Connection
by V.K 1977 on 2018/07/30 17:09
Before you could connect your app to the internet and work on your computer which was very nice. Now with the new update you can not do it anymore which is very bad
Everything was erased with the update??
by MandiSouza on 2018/07/30 07:05
I’ve used this app for years but after the recent automatic update, I opened the app to see ALL of my notes erased. Not a single folder is still there. I had years of important notes and folders in the app so I am very disappointed. I wish there was a way to get my old notes back?
Update
by Aiyana-Jade on 2018/07/29 14:39
I have a TBI so my notes are important and ever since the update I can’t open a few of them without the app crashing so it really bothers me if I knew updating would have done this I would not have.
My Documents are gone!!!!
by Juanitwo on 2018/07/29 06:30
Why my old files documents and notes are all gone when they update their App?... i cant retrieved all my important notes!!!!!😡
Do not update
by Hang Fun on 2018/07/25 17:51
I updated to a newer version. When completed and I opened the app, I lost ALL my notes, and data. I tried to retrieve through their suggestions and even emailed the app developer. NO response, NO data recovered. Will not use this app again.
Unable to back up or open
by Mobius No Last Name Given on 2018/07/25 14:59
I am unable to open your app after it was updated. The backup is unable to be sent since it is over 100mb, and even though I am connected to WiFi your app reads it as me not being connected, which makes it not send the backup, which makes me unable to open the app at all. I used this for a lot of things, but right now it is broken.
Update is terrible!
by redhot419 on 2018/07/24 23:08
I have used BluLines before it was even called BluLines. I have always loved it, it has been my go to when I recommend it to everybody I know. Now I cannot access any of my past folders, I see them but when I touch them it crashes. I’ve had to completely start over, 4 years of vital information is lost! It would never let me do a back up!
Crash
by Angel phace on 2018/07/24 15:12
After the new update, one of my folders with critical information stored won’t open and I’m unable to restore from backup or access via a link that was emailed. Really frustrating as I do not have that information stored anywhere else. It’s a complete loss. If this can’t be fixed I will delete the app and find something else. Maybe have to go back to old school save hard copy in filing cabinet!!
Lost My Notes
by Lost-Notes on 2018/07/24 04:42
I also updated to the new version of the app. I didn't know I was going to lost all of my notes. Is there something I can do to recover my notes!
Just lost all my notes
by Ssowell on 2018/07/23 03:48
Overnight my phone must have updated or something, everything is gone. 5 years of info and no way to get it back. I was just bragging on this app and how efficient it was to have all my info at my fingertips. Not so now! It was GREAT before the update change.
I lost EVERYTHING
by PKStrohm on 2018/07/22 23:01
Worst transition to a “new version” of any app I have ever had. It wiped everything off of my phone with no notice. Garbage.
Bad upgrade
by falshh on 2018/07/22 22:21
Just did update. Lost some boys. The saved file isn’t restoring. I upgraded my iOS and app Still won’t open Good app hopefully just a bug
Please help!
by Kendalldp on 2018/07/22 20:38
Updating on iPad and followed instruction to backup first. Sent file to email. 99.9% info COMPLETELY GONE. Please tell me how to fix this. I have it on iPhone but afraid to open it lest I lose any info that could possibly still be on there.
DON'T UPGRADE
by Fish-Fish on 2018/07/20 23:05
I just upgraded to the latest version... I lost ALLmy notes. If the developer reads this please let me know how I can get my notes back. I am running IOS 10.3 on a 6S+ - Thank you
Loved it before.....but now, everything gone!
by Dkami on 2018/07/19 13:34
I used N+tes almost daily before two weeks ago. It had everything I needed to keep safe and secure, was easy to update and use. I was able to export info easily and it backed up to my iPad easily. Now with this new version, I’ve tried to restore all of my info and it only gives me an error message or locks up the app so I eventually have to delete the app again and start over. I sent an email backup in the npotes format, but this doesn’t seem to be able to sync with the new app. I can see it on my phone and even when I want to restore from backup, but it is greyed out so I can’t use it for backup. Have sent a few requests to the developers last week and the week before, but have since not received an answer. I have used this for 5-7 years now and don’t want to change apps, but I can’t lose all of my files. CAN’T! Please help! Before 2 weeks ago, would have given this app 5+ stars......now? More like 3 stars due to the past use, but it’s quickly dropping.
Lost all notes😡
by Top gunn on 2018/07/15 15:50
With this new update lost ALL Previous notes
Good basic app
by mmai19053 on 2018/07/15 15:06
I’ve used it for years, and it is just a good app. Never really a problem. I now have quite a lot data in my app and rely on it regular. I hope to use it for years.
Everything has been deleted!
by Pork & Beans 7 on 2018/07/14 19:45
You rebuilt the app & now I’ve lost everything even after saving to my email before update. Please tell me how to retrieve previous data!!!
Big update issue

I love this app! But...

Removing iCloud sync
by Game teacher131313 on 2018/07/13 12:56
Why would you remove the iCloud sync? That is why I loved this app. Now I have to go through a secondary for sync? Disappointing. I will be looking for another app that will go across all of my other devices. Now this app updated on my iPad and I lost EVERYTHIING! The back up did not work! Why would you create an update that does not transfer the original files!?!?
The pop up ads are obnoxious
by Jeeperscreepers97 on 2018/07/12 03:21
EVERY time I open the app I get an ad. Lately it’s been mostly videos that you have to wait on to use the app. I’m about to transfer all my notes to another app if this keeps up.
BACKUP YOUR NOTES IF YOU UPDATE
by dan297 on 2018/07/08 13:27
DO NOT UPDATE UNLESS YOU’VE BACKED UO YOUR NOTES! I’ve lost years of notes.
Can’t open backup email file!
by Mccopnpd on 2018/07/07 19:48
Great App but why have a backup if you can’t open it!
SMH
by Joe Web 0212 on 2018/06/05 13:41
This app was by far the best offline note taking app in the App Store. I think it still has a chance to regain its notoriety but they should fix the features for exporting/importing notes.
No ad option was a waste of money!
by jedawson007 on 2018/04/02 21:31
I purchase no ads option. Still have pop up ads! The ads cause the app to freeze up. You have to close app and open again.
Too many ads
by mj4949 on 2018/03/29 13:56
The amount of ads on this app has significantly increased. Nearly every time you return to the app, there is another ad, even if you had it open thirty seconds ago. Video ads are now playing too. Searching for a new notes app with fewer annoying ads.
Works
by Nick Schager on 2018/03/27 18:57
You need notes Great app for the job The ads are troublesome Charge us free users 2$ to block the ads but still allow free users notes 🤓 this probably won’t be read but erm thanks!
I LOVE THIS APP
by Katriel613 on 2018/02/27 20:10
I Have nothing but good things to say! It works great on my I pad 4th generation. And also just put it on my I Phone 6 plus. I hope that when it’s time to update it will update me to the BluLines 2. But we will see. I would for sure recommend it.
Great app but thinking of deleting
by Moose42013 on 2018/02/21 12:48
Please get rid of the opening ads. Love the app but the ad is so annoying I’m looking for a new note app. Love how organized I can be and how my categories can have categories!
Good app :)

I had this app for years, chock full of random stories from my younger years. Today, I wanted to go back and read them so I opened the app up for the first time in a while and everything is gone. All my notes, all my folders, everything. I’ve had the same phone so nothing would’ve gotten lost. I’ve had the same iCloud. I really hope I’m missing something or I’m just plain mistaken but as of right now I’m confused and upset. Please help! Is there anything I can do?? wAIT NO NVM everything’s back. I’m not sure what I did but that was quite the scare. Ai ai ai. Sorry for that.
Nice App
by BigAggie on 2017/12/21 21:06
This would be a sure four star and maybe a 5 star if I didn’t have to mess with the stupid ads. Not only the ads, the products you advertise are stupid. Get a life.
Please get RID of ADS when trying to open the app
by 12345zxcvbqwertyuippkhg on 2017/12/09 07:59
I hate these dumb ads which I don’t even read or look at. I bet you get 0% return on these because everyone goes immediately to the “ no thanks“ button. The problem is, when you do choose the no thanks option, the ad doesn’t go away! In fact it either never goes away and I have to reopen the app or I have to get out of the screen, do something else and then come back to it. This is a huge flaw and I’m about ready to delete the whole thing and transfer my notes elsewhere. PLEASE FIX THIS!
Please help

Dear RIE Unlimited, A long time ago, I downloaded Notes+, which has since changed to its current name. I have a couple thousand files on it. I think around August or September of 2016, it started going screwy for me. It would crash after a few seconds of it being open, and I didn't download the new update because I saw reviews that said that once a you did, all your files were deleted. So I held out, and attempted to back up my files from BluLines to either DropBox, iCloud, and the other suggested ways, but because of the crashing it wouldn't work. I don't think it was going to work anyway. But now, I've updated my phone to iOS11, and when I try to click on the app it won't even open because it needs to be updated. I see you have a new update ready, but I'm afraid everything will be gone if I download it. I'm afraid that everything's gone anyway because I updated to iOS11. There is a back up of my phone on my iTunes on my computer, but that was done just after I got iOS11. So again, my fear is that everything has been erased, and that now that I've backed up my phone to my computer after getting iOS11 that the previous back up which was not with iOS11 is gone and all my files from your app are just gone. I apologize for the long email, but I would greatly appreciate your help. I just want to have the confidence that my data will still be there before I just do something and it's all gone. Much of my life is on that app, so I'm being as cautious as possible. Thanks, A concerned customer
This WAS my favorite app! And it is one of my favorites again!
by Frustrated N+OTES USER!!!!! on 2017/11/22 03:32
Update 1.0- So far this app has worked fine since a couple years ago when I had issues with it so I'm back to 4 stars. It would be 5 stars if it weren't for those problems. Update- still a 1 star. Since I've had the problems with this app which for some reason is now "BluNotes" I've started transferring my important notes to the Notes section of my address book. I can only type in the info or cut and copy then paste it there but it seems to work fine. For some the notes that I can't associate with a contact I put the name of the subject for the notes in the first and last name section and then scroll down to the notes section and put my info there. You can save files or pics or a lot of things you can with this app but I hVent lost any of the notes I've put there like I did with this app. Changed from a 3-4 year old 4S to a 6 yesterday, I have been trying ever since to get N+OTES to work since. I backed up everything to e-mail and to Dropbox but when I try to" Import and Replace" a window pops up that says- ERROR Unexpected error while replacing data file OK. So I also sent a message to the developer but have heard anything back yet. Any help from anyone would be appreciated. I can still get to some of the notes on my Ipad mini but I don't know how long that will last.
Love!
by CrissiTN on 2017/11/22 03:09
I've had this app for years and use it daily. Love it! I don't like the ads but $6.99 is pretty high but then again I don't know what additional features we'd get with ad-free app. Elaborate? Even with the ads, five stars!
Crashing
by Jufifufuffu on 2017/11/19 07:29
App keeps crashing with new iPhone 8. Won’t stay open. Restarted phone several times
I can't backup anything!
by Artistic and awesome on 2017/11/15 21:09
I'm going to be getting a new phone soon so I want to backup all my notes somewhere that I can safely keep them and know they'll be okay during the switch. My iCloud storage says that it's full. I try to backup to Dropbox (even downloaded the Dropbox app like it says to) and signing in just does nothing, nothing happens. I try to email it like it says and the email is unable to be sent, it just doesn't work. I plug into my computer to try and download it online through a web browser, but there is no way to save all the notes easily. I have to copy and paste each individual note in my computer if I'm to save it. And that doesn't even work because the browser randomly decides that it suddenly can't find the page and I have to exit and come back which takes way too long. All I want is to save my freaking notes somewhere that isn't in this app but it won't let me. My last option I think is copying and pasting each note into something that DOES work on my phone and saving it that way. Ridiculous! This app is great for taking organized notes but the inability to transport them is a huge disadvantage. My suggestion to anyone thinking of spending years writing in an app to find something else that has less of a chance of your hard work going to waste. If I had known it would be this hard to move notes I never would have gotten this app.
Crash!
by Bsneath on 2017/11/08 16:15
I have loved this app for couple years. Trying to get in now and it just crashes. Please help as I have tons of notes in here.
Passcode not working right
by Debbietalk G on 2017/10/17 04:10
Passcode set to “on”- yet When I sign into the app it’s not asking for passcode. If I go out and immediately back in it asks for passcode. But if I clear my history, it automatically goes to my folders without passcode. NOT HELPFUL!
*angry face*
by DrFierce12 on 2017/10/13 13:51
For some reason, the new update just erased all my info😤😠😤😠😤😠😤😠😤😠😤😠😤😠
Insecure since iOS 11 upgrade
by ksuan on 2017/10/11 18:03
Update 10/11 - it’s still not fixed, and now is totally insecure. I have to remove it from my phone. Stop thinking about widgets and focus on security!! Is anyone listening?? Since upgrading my iPhone 6s+ I can just open this app without entering my security code - this is bad. Please fix ASAP?
Security Code
by Jip0428 on 2017/10/07 19:44
I really like this app but it needs to be updated. No matter how many times I change the settings and require a code to open it up, it still opens without a security code.
Issue
by Lil Heathen on 2017/10/03 15:00
New iphone 8. Passcode not functioning now on new phone. Opens right up with no passcode prompt. I use this for all my passcodes. Please fix.
Love it... needs IOS 11 upgrade compatibility
by Tsassenach on 2017/10/02 02:48
Have lost my password protection for app since newest iphone upgrade happened. (Yes..made sure option was chosen in settings! ) this Is the first issue ive had with app. Use it for many notes and folders! Easy to use and loved the password protection. Need it back!!
iOS 11 —passcode not required anymore to open
by Clmcnm on 2017/09/28 18:25
This app worked great for putting a passcode on notes. Before iOS 11, the passcode was required every time I opened the app which is how I wanted it to work. After iOS 11 install, I can open app and read notes without entering the passcode. It only asks for the passcode if I leave the app open, go do something else and then come back to the app. Not good. Now I’m locking notes in my iCloud notes app.
Easy to use
by RJLupin1031 on 2017/08/23 03:03
I have been using this app for over 4 years now and I find it very easy to use. I absolutely love the browser connect option for extracting and adding to current notes/files. I noticed that recently though any of my changes made while in browser connect wont save unless I delete something. It saves everything I delete. So i open my notes back up later and there are fragments of sentences missing, gobberish. Once I figured out that it doesnt save any added changes, i definitely won't be using browser connect mode until an update fixes that. Otherwise tho, this is my go to app for writing and saving files!
Need some fixing
by NamikazeHime on 2017/05/12 15:18
I personally like this app because it organizes your notes into folders and such. You can get a back up sent to your email, but after the recent update. The email backup doesn't seem to be working. Please fix this!
Frustrating
by BaronScarpia on 2017/04/11 19:22
The app itself is great. But now a video game pops up when I open the app. I paid for an ad free version and I don't want this intrusion. I'm deleting the app.
Lost All My Notes
by Concorde1997 on 2017/04/04 17:55
Epic failure. The app worked well enough for a couple of years. But, I recently discovered that all of my notes have mysteriously vanished. Above all else, a note taking app must reliably maintain the entered notes.
ALMOST perfect!!
by Ashygirl2005 on 2019/02/02 02:16
As a writer I use this app and my notes tend to get pretty long… it would be useful if you added a feature that took you to the bottom of a note you were writing, since some of my notes are well over 20k words and all that scrolling is just a pain. Thanks!
If no problems, no problems.
by Hero_Underground on 2020/01/21 22:58
I have used this app for at least four and a half years. I have used it for personal use and several hobbies that I have wanted to document along the way. I recently had a lot of notes building up and I knew I needed to do a backup. I did my normal backup on this app and shortly after everything was wiped out. I didn’t think anything about losing everything because I knew I had a backup. I tried to reload my backup multiple times and I got nothing. I reset my phone. I tried to load my backup with WiFi on and off and no luck either way. Still nothing. I thought I would take my issue up with an email to the company. I sent them an email a week ago hoping to get a response. Honestly, since this company is a tech company I am disappointed with their customer service option. I have only been able to contact them with email and no live chat support. So far, they have not contacted me about my backup or the issues I have had. I loved this app and I would have easily given them a five star review until I had problems and they ditched me, the customer.
So annoyed!
by IamRaynaBrown on 2018/12/24 08:51
I'm really annoyed. I use this app daily, several times a day. I have hundreds of notes. First of all, I lost a great deal of notes in the upgrade a while ago. :-( Second, THE ADDS!!! I paid for the lifetime upgrade when I first got the app. I am an artist and use this for lyric support and now have to wait for the add to pull up my lyrics etc. even when you X out it still goes to the add and you have to go back to the app. Either the adds go or I go or at least refund my money for the upgrades. I am also frustrated with the fact that everything triples and quadruples when I try to sync between devices. Looking for a new app to utilize!!! Very disappointed!!
Still works great for me!
by slamdunk406 on 2020/09/08 05:04
I’ve been using BluLines for several years and it still works great for me! I have the free version, so I have to deal with adds, but aside from that, it’s great. And if you want to get rid of adds, you can always purchase the upgraded non-ads version. Just wanted to put the plug in for this app since I’ve seen a lot of overly negative reviews. The app is still great for taking and organizing notes. Backing up is also pretty easy.
What the hell?
by Eme Lin on 2018/10/08 06:21
As a poet and songwriter I’ve used this app for years and basically watched it turn to crap. When I have an idea to write something I have to wait to exit out of a video, so bloop there goes the idea. I used to love the feature to lock my notes but honestly I find myself just using apple’s built-in notes app because my ideas are money that I rather not lose. I hate to do this because I have enjoyed this app for years and have enjoyed it. This update doesn’t even save my font settings. I went as far as rewriting everything in a journal because I can’t deal with how annoying this app is to use anymore.
Lost notes found!
by beckydawn on 2019/04/15 13:52
Thought I’d lost all of my notes after the last upgrade but remembered to turn the phone off for a soft reset and there they were 🙃 AGAIN!!! I have so many notes in each folder that it would be wonderful if there was a way to search for the one particular item I’m looking for instead of searching the whole list - it’s too cumbersome the way I have to do it now- otherwise I love this app ❤️❤️❤️ and would give it 5 stars ⭐️
Use at your own risk
by Amorriz on 2019/03/23 17:38
I haven’t used this app in years. I’m still angry about all the notes I’ve lost while using this app. Apple notes has come a long way and is still my reliable source for retaining all my crucial notes. Ultimately no one app is trustworthy, so always backup your notes no matter what you use. Apps like these are usually vulnerable when an update occurs. If data is lost, there’s almost no way to recover this information leaving you helpless. So I caution anyone to trust especially a third party app. The features they offer are great, but none of that matters with no data.
Highlighting and enhanced text
by Ohitsjoy on 2020/08/26 11:26
I have been using this app for several years. I believe I have purchased additional features. However, I find that features I enjoyed I no longer have - such as the ability to highlight in several colors, colored text, insertion of date etc. However I am not sure if I turned off something in error. I contacted Support but no one has reached out. This is quite disconcerting to me. Kindly assist.
Love the ability to have notes in a category
by YorkiMama on 2018/09/06 07:37
I looked at several “note” programs, and this was the best one that didn’t just have specific notes, but the ability to have many notes listed under a category. I’ve used BluLines for years and love it!
Perfection many functions
by Ndidhdfhcncn on 2020/01/06 06:53
Has flaws, doesn’t always safe it’s info that I write
Quick and clean
by Scamel61 on 2018/09/10 20:31
Did not like this app with adds but it is perfect now. I don’t have to refresh my memory about how to use the app every time I open it. Make new notes easy. Find old notes easy.
Absolutely essential
by Miguelando on 2018/09/02 18:47
This app is absolutely essential to everything I do. For everyone who needs to keep track of more than a few things and stay organized, this app is the way to go.
App suddenly won’t work
by Briwha6 on 2019/02/23 22:10
I foolishly trusted this app with a good bit of info and it suddenly will not open and I no longer have access to the info / notes. I’ve emailed support multiple times and they have not responded. I recently downloaded the latest update to the app, hoping that maybe it was a bug they had fixed, but I’m still getting the same problem. I won’t use it anymore, but I want my notes back.

Love the app but.......
by Dmailmn on 2018/09/14 18:17
The older version you could change the background colors and font colors to your own likings. I used a black background and neon green letters as I play in a band and in dark rooms so it worked perfectly for that. Now, with the update, I don’t have that option anymore. Or if so, I need to know where it is.
Info added isn’t staying saved
by Hurricane3! on 2019/11/25 01:50
I use this app all the time & come back & make changes to notes, add new notes, rearrange things & when I come back to the not it doesn’t have the information saved. Please get this fixed as I use this app constantly. I will happily change my rating after its fixed I just need it to keep all the information i am changing on the app.
Navigate
by Lou&# on 2020/01/20 21:33
I thought this app would work for me. I showed certain items I needed as well as color & sizing of text also bold, underline, & etc that I wanted. Said go to features which is not in the free version. If the free version doesn’t have that then I need to move on & find one that does cause that could be a deal breaker. Pls advise.
Browser connect feature gone ?
by BrowserConnect on 2018/12/22 18:09
This app used to be able to open a connection to edit your notes in a web browser. It was the feature that kept me using this app. Is this feature gone in the recent updates ?
Is this an ads app or a notes app?
by Plumb bacon on 2019/08/29 20:47
Advertisements all the time. Many with sound that interrupt what you’re listening to. Many ads are long and they purposely hide the x so you can’t skip it. Many times when you skip it you end up getting sent to the ad page. It’s gotten extremely annoying. Do not get.
Kicked out
by beyoutiful128 on 2018/10/08 02:17
I love this app. I use it very often but after the update it kicks me out of the app when I am scrolling through my notes. It is very frustrating. Please fix this issue so I can give 5 stars. Thank you!
No Predictive Text
by CLI-user on 2018/09/30 14:38
A recent version of this got rid of predictive text, so that now even the standard Notes app is easier to use. Why? Also, it takes an extra keystroke to access the custom keys, which use to be displayed at all times just above the keyboard. Can I roll this back to a previous version?
Inappropriate Ads Popping Up
by Financial Blitz on 2019/06/19 20:43
Pop up ads are bad enough but recently the same inappropriate ad has been popping up on my phone. I could not immediately delete or close it and the ad automatically started with sound. I originally got this app when no adds existed. I am looking for a new app.
Stuck on “Processing...”
by BMAC200 on 2018/09/04 15:57
I went to open my notes app and it is stuck on “Processing...”. I have notes in there that I do not want to lose but can’t get to them. I emailed support almost 2 weeks ago and have received zero response. I am running the most recent version which was just updated yesterday. Please help.
Gone South
by CaptData on 2019/05/05 10:46
No support. Emailed them several time with NOTHING response. Can’t backup from the backup file. Lots of data on the line. It worked when I bought it doesn’t anymore. I will NEVER buy any of their apps and suggest you don’t either.
Done
by pokefan749 on 2019/03/13 16:57
Several times I have spent a good amount of time making important changes to current lIsts only to have them revert back to where I started and I lost everything. I’m looking for a new app now. I used to like this app but with this and all the ads that won’t go away I'm just done.
Don’t use
by KimKAKD on 2018/09/03 18:01
I have had this app for a while and really liked using it, but I have now lost all of my data TWICE just from updating the app. I won’t be making this mistake again. No longer using this app because I can’t trust it to keep my data.
The ads are full screen & insanely obnoxious
by a sad former user on 2019/06/08 13:44
Don’t even bother. Loved this app before it decided to ruin itself. Full screen ads that lock until you hit “install” on whatever video game spam they’re selling. Great job, team. Fantastic ruination of your product.
The Best File System App

Recovery
by catmeldo on 2012/12/15 21:42
I made the rookie mistake of cleaning my screen with N+otes turned on ( open and on the screen ). I was using a Zeiss Lens Cloth and my gestures were being read quite clearly. A micro cloth does no do this. Anyway... My gestures created a bizarre situation where some of my folders were gone, others noted that they had various quantities of notes inside them but they could not be seen. I could have restarted the iPad but I felt that might mean losing my notes. The "all notes" folder did show all my note so I went about the process of highlighting the note, select all, Cut, then pasting the note in an existing or newly created folder and adding a 'c' to the end of the first line so I'd know that it was really moved. There were some other weird things that happened but long story short ... I shutdown the iPad and restarted it. Upon opening N+otes the missing folders had returned but the notes were no longer inside because they had been moved to the new folders. I deleted one of the old and empty folders after which the notes in the new folders were no longer visible. Restarting the iPad brought them back but deleting another of the old and empty folders had the same result. So after the second or third restart I deleted the last three old and empty folders, restarted and now all seems fine. What a job. Of course, simply restarting at the beginning of all this mayhem might have fixed everything but I didn't want to take the chance.
Run, run, run
by Wichita guitar picker on 2018/10/07 03:27
I purchased this app when it first came out. After paying to remove the annoying ads years ago... they still stick annoying ads requesting one to pay $3.99 to remove them. It’s a scam.
Can’t reload
by mcgyve on 2020/04/22 16:16
Been using for years now, can’t reload data from a backup whether it’s BluLines or Dropbox Very disappointed, all my equipment data is sitting there but won’t reload
Would be perfect if...
by KJEpic on 2018/10/07 21:00
The app sometimes deletes notes by itself. Would rate 5 if fixed.
Wiped out
by Wiped All Out on 2020/04/08 20:18
I’ve had this app for several years and when I updated it, all of my notes were wiped clean... nothing left. I’ve emailed their support email and have heard nothing back yet. Hopefully I will.
I loved this app when it was still NOTES but...
by dianne0830 on 2018/12/04 03:33
App has turned crappy over the years. Ads will appear everywhere and it’s not encrypted. Time to look for another similar app.
LOUD ADS!
by Jayjay434 on 2019/12/06 22:24
Every time I open the app a VERY OBNOXIOUS LOUD VIDEO AD plays with no way to change in settings. I deleted the app because of this. I could never open the app when in public. I get having ads, but this is just rude!
Backups not working
by Francophilee on 2020/03/23 21:38
2020 version updates - backup files are 176 kB ie data is not getting backed up in iCloud drives nor sent as email - is it bug or intentional for free version
UNSAFE

Test it first. Back up doesn’t work. Eventually you will lose everything.

Security Flaw
by UBASMART1 on 2015/09/29 21:22
I give this app five stars because it's an awesome app which I use every day and appreciate immensely however I titled it security flaw because, least on your iPhone when you double-click your home button, as you know, the app minimizes along with any other apps that are currently open. Security minded apps will generally ONLY show a minimized version of the login screen (the keypad). That's the exact fix needed. Otherwise here's the problem/here's what happens: EVEN IF you have you have "PASSWORD LOCK" (my original proposal) set to "immediately", you can still easily read the contents of your secure notes once minimized and you can even read the contents of that minimized note once you switch to another app and then return to your N+ote. Major issue but I believe it's an easy fix for Rieu, although I have asked for in the past.I still give it five stars because it *will* be a five-star app following that security fix. Thank you.
My Notes are Back!!!
by GypsyChic on 2018/07/30 23:53
UPDATE: Thank you! Thank you! Whatever you did in this last update yesterday finally fixed the bug that was preventing me from restoring all of my notes back onto my iPhone 6+ BluLines App. So happy to have all of my notes back on both of my devices! It looks like the App on my two Apple devices will no longer Sync with one another though? I will check on that later this week. For now, just wanted to express my gratitude to the developers for sorting the bug out. ******************************************** New Version/Update Lost all my Notes on my iPhone 6+ My old iPad 3 is still running an old version of the BluLines App with my notes. I loved how the iCloud would sync my updated notes between my iPad / iPhone 6+. Unfortunately, the App updated on my phone to new version last night & lost all my notes. I’ve tried to restore from iCloud & from emailed backup file, but neither worked. The App crashed, so I deleted / downloaded fresh & now it won’t even open on my phone. SO frustrating, as I don’t always carry my old iPad with me & I have used this app pretty much exclusively for notes (going back at least 5 years I think). I really loved this App in the past. Please fix it, so I can try again to restore via iCloud sync from my old version of App.
Great basic notes program, but has a minor security bug
by goatcheeseisyummy on 2013/02/25 19:31
This is great basic program for notes. The layout is very simple and easy to use and overall has a very organized feel. Additionally, it always runs smoothly and has never crashed or frozen up on me. The one complaint I have though is that there is a minor bug in the password feature. I turned on the feature to password protect the app and I works fine as long as the app is on the home screen (folder veiw) when you close it out. But, if you leave the app while you have a document open, when you switch back to the app it does not require you to enter your password. Overall, it's not a huge problem but I would really like it to be fixed.
💗💗 Love this app! 💗💗
by Black Magic5683 on 2015/10/25 16:26
I love this app! I am glad that I found it. It allows me to change and customize my themes, buttons, paper, and so forth to my liking. Unlimited notes as far as disk space on your phone will allow is also nice. If I wanted to, I can even password protect my notes by enabling Password Protection in the settings. That is also nice. The other features of the app including photos, audio recording, and video clip attachments, is ok. It even allows for the creation of folders to keep certain notes separate and organized in proper folders! Outstanding! You can even move notes from folder to folder if needed! I have an iPhone6+, and I have not had any problems with it whatsoever! Thanks for a superb app! Don't ever delete this off the App Store! I like it to much to see it go!
Easy to use
by RJLupin1031 on 2017/08/23 03:03
I have been using this app for over 4 years now and I find it very easy to use. I absolutely love the browser connect option for extracting and adding to current notes/files. I noticed that recently though any of my changes made while in browser connect wont save unless I delete something. It saves everything I delete. So i open my notes back up later and there are fragments of sentences missing, gobberish. Once I figured out that it doesnt save any added changes, i definitely won't be using browser connect mode until an update fixes that. Otherwise tho, this is my go to app for writing and saving files!
GREAT ! needs some updates though
by Dobber29 on 2012/08/28 16:02
This is a GREAT app! it is my main note-taking app over Pages, which i only use for essays and presentations and stuff like that. What i really like about this app is how organized it is, with the use of folders very easy to access on the side. And also the notebook layout is one of the main reasons i use it, it gives more of a traditional feel. However, i would really like to see some updates such as different fonts, italics bold and underline, and importing pictures into your notes. These would all be helpful approvements to an already great app. If your thinking where you should write your notes, this app is definitely it.
Elegant UI, pinching, swiping, plus useful options
by ColoradoRanger on 2012/09/26 20:21
This is just what I was looking for! The features that made this app different from all the others I tested include 1) app navigation on only one edge of the screen when in a note (leaving more screen space for the note itself), 2) pinching a note to enlarge or diminish the type size, in portrait and landscape, with the note rewrapping instead of going past the screen edge, and 3) swiping from side to side to move from note to note. This app also includes nice features like foldered organization, theme choices (purchase), and three fonts (including simple and clean helvetica, which is all I need). Quite nice for FREE! Thank you.
Excellent notes app with folders
by some_yahoo on 2012/09/23 19:04
This app is a great replacement for the standard iOS Notes app. I was looking for an easy-to-use app with a simple interface to capture notes quickly, that would also allow me to iorganize my notes into folders. I also needed the app to work on my iphone 4s and my first-gen iPad with simple, seamless icloud syncing. This app fits the bill. It also has a nice set of features such as selecting fonts and themes to make it easy to customize to my personal tastes. Last but not least it has a built-in passcode lock feature to keep those spying eyes off of your personal stuff. Great job on this app guys!
Won't Save new files; won't delete old files.
by Apps-junkie on 2013/01/27 22:45
Iphone 5 & iPad2. This was a good app, sometime before the last 2 or 3 upgrades (mid- Dec 12). At first I thought the problem was syncing to icloud. The free program worked if you don't sync to iCloud OR do a backup. (the prices on subscriptions & the full app is way to high for this type of App. There are many other better apps out there, but once I did like this one). Others complained, but no fixes seemed to be have been made yet. I tried today (upgrade was just released) and I did a iCloud sync, I didn't trust it, but it seemed to work. So, I downloaded my backup from December. All downloaded ok. But once again, any file I delete, comes back again (even after rebooting my phone completely). Any file I add, does not get saved after I close out the app completely.

Still works great for me!
by slamdunk406 on 2020/09/08 05:04
I’ve been using BluLines for several years and it still works great for me! I have the free version, so I have to deal with adds, but aside from that, it’s great. And if you want to get rid of adds, you can always purchase the upgraded non-ads version. Just wanted to put the plug in for this app since I’ve seen a lot of overly negative reviews. The app is still great for taking and organizing notes. Backing up is also pretty easy.
Highlighting and enhanced text
by Ohitsjoy on 2020/08/26 11:26
I have been using this app for several years. I believe I have purchased additional features. However, I find that features I enjoyed I no longer have - such as the ability to highlight in several colors, colored text, insertion of date etc. However I am not sure if I turned off something in error. I contacted Support but no one has reached out. This is quite disconcerting to me. Kindly assist.
Can’t reload
by mcgyve on 2020/04/22 16:16
Been using for years now, can’t reload data from a backup whether it’s BluLines or Dropbox Very disappointed, all my equipment data is sitting there but won’t reload
Wiped out
by Wiped All Out on 2020/04/08 20:18
I’ve had this app for several years and when I updated it, all of my notes were wiped clean... nothing left. I’ve emailed their support email and have heard nothing back yet. Hopefully I will.
Backups not working
by Francophilee on 2020/03/23 21:38
2020 version updates - backup files are 176 kB ie data is not getting backed up in iCloud drives nor sent as email - is it bug or intentional for free version
UNSAFE
by Not much to it on 2020/02/13 12:25
Test it first. Back up doesn’t work. Eventually you will lose everything.
If no problems, no problems.
by Hero_Underground on 2020/01/21 22:58
I have used this app for at least four and a half years. I have used it for personal use and several hobbies that I have wanted to document along the way. I recently had a lot of notes building up and I knew I needed to do a backup. I did my normal backup on this app and shortly after everything was wiped out. I didn’t think anything about losing everything because I knew I had a backup. I tried to reload my backup multiple times and I got nothing. I reset my phone. I tried to load my backup with WiFi on and off and no luck either way. Still nothing. I thought I would take my issue up with an email to the company. I sent them an email a week ago hoping to get a response. Honestly, since this company is a tech company I am disappointed with their customer service option. I have only been able to contact them with email and no live chat support. So far, they have not contacted me about my backup or the issues I have had. I loved this app and I would have easily given them a five star review until I had problems and they ditched me, the customer.
Navigate
by Lou&# on 2020/01/20 21:33
I thought this app would work for me. I showed certain items I needed as well as color & sizing of text also bold, underline, & etc that I wanted. Said go to features which is not in the free version. If the free version doesn’t have that then I need to move on & find one that does cause that could be a deal breaker. Pls advise.
Perfection many functions

Has flaws, doesn’t always safe it’s info that I write
LOUD ADS!
by Jayjay434 on 2019/12/06 22:24
Every time I open the app a VERY OBNOXIOUS LOUD VIDEO AD plays with no way to change in settings. I deleted the app because of this. I could never open the app when in public. I get having ads, but this is just rude!
Info added isn’t staying saved
by Hurricane3! on 2019/11/25 01:50
I use this app all the time & come back & make changes to notes, add new notes, rearrange things & when I come back to the not it doesn’t have the information saved. Please get this fixed as I use this app constantly. I will happily change my rating after its fixed I just need it to keep all the information i am changing on the app.

Is this an ads app or a notes app?
by Plumb bacon on 2019/08/29 20:47
Advertisements all the time. Many with sound that interrupt what you’re listening to. Many ads are long and they purposely hide the x so you can’t skip it. Many times when you skip it you end up getting sent to the ad page. It’s gotten extremely annoying. Do not get.
Inappropriate Ads Popping Up
by Financial Blitz on 2019/06/19 20:43
Pop up ads are bad enough but recently the same inappropriate ad has been popping up on my phone. I could not immediately delete or close it and the ad automatically started with sound. I originally got this app when no adds existed. I am looking for a new app.
The ads are full screen & insanely obnoxious
by a sad former user on 2019/06/08 13:44
Don’t even bother. Loved this app before it decided to ruin itself. Full screen ads that lock until you hit “install” on whatever video game spam they’re selling. Great job, team. Fantastic ruination of your product.
Gone South
by CaptData on 2019/05/05 10:46
No support. Emailed them several time with NOTHING response. Can’t backup from the backup file. Lots of data on the line. It worked when I bought it doesn’t anymore. I will NEVER buy any of their apps and suggest you don’t either.
Blue lines is great. Love the folders and ability to back up your info, in multiple ways.
by Gemini178 on 2019/04/28 12:38
I love this app. My only criticism, is that I had to repurchase my lifetime no ads, feature, after the upgrade last year. They did send me a code to re-activate for free but the code expires if not used promptly and they have not sent me a new one. So, I just paid another $4 for no ads. My first purchase for no ads lasted 5 years. Atv$1 a year that’s not bad. Hopefully Bluelines support will refund my $4 in time and be true to their promise of “life time” no ads; regardless of whether you promptly use their reinstall code. Outside of that issue with support, that App is Great!!!!! * * * * *
Lost notes found!
by beckydawn on 2019/04/15 13:52
Thought I’d lost all of my notes after the last upgrade but remembered to turn the phone off for a soft reset and there they were 🙃 AGAIN!!! I have so many notes in each folder that it would be wonderful if there was a way to search for the one particular item I’m looking for instead of searching the whole list - it’s too cumbersome the way I have to do it now- otherwise I love this app ❤️❤️❤️ and would give it 5 stars ⭐️
Use at your own risk
by Amorriz on 2019/03/23 17:38
I haven’t used this app in years. I’m still angry about all the notes I’ve lost while using this app. Apple notes has come a long way and is still my reliable source for retaining all my crucial notes. Ultimately no one app is trustworthy, so always backup your notes no matter what you use. Apps like these are usually vulnerable when an update occurs. If data is lost, there’s almost no way to recover this information leaving you helpless. So I caution anyone to trust especially a third party app. The features they offer are great, but none of that matters with no data.
Done
by pokefan749 on 2019/03/13 16:57
Several times I have spent a good amount of time making important changes to current lIsts only to have them revert back to where I started and I lost everything. I’m looking for a new app now. I used to like this app but with this and all the ads that won’t go away I'm just done.
App suddenly won’t work
by Briwha6 on 2019/02/23 22:10
I foolishly trusted this app with a good bit of info and it suddenly will not open and I no longer have access to the info / notes. I’ve emailed support multiple times and they have not responded. I recently downloaded the latest update to the app, hoping that maybe it was a bug they had fixed, but I’m still getting the same problem. I won’t use it anymore, but I want my notes back.
ALMOST perfect!!
by Ashygirl2005 on 2019/02/02 02:16
As a writer I use this app and my notes tend to get pretty long… it would be useful if you added a feature that took you to the bottom of a note you were writing, since some of my notes are well over 20k words and all that scrolling is just a pain. Thanks!
Me. SF

So annoyed!
by IamRaynaBrown on 2018/12/24 08:51
I'm really annoyed. I use this app daily, several times a day. I have hundreds of notes. First of all, I lost a great deal of notes in the upgrade a while ago. :-( Second, THE ADDS!!! I paid for the lifetime upgrade when I first got the app. I am an artist and use this for lyric support and now have to wait for the add to pull up my lyrics etc. even when you X out it still goes to the add and you have to go back to the app. Either the adds go or I go or at least refund my money for the upgrades. I am also frustrated with the fact that everything triples and quadruples when I try to sync between devices. Looking for a new app to utilize!!! Very disappointed!!
Browser connect feature gone ?
by BrowserConnect on 2018/12/22 18:09
This app used to be able to open a connection to edit your notes in a web browser. It was the feature that kept me using this app. Is this feature gone in the recent updates ?
I loved this app when it was still NOTES but...
by dianne0830 on 2018/12/04 03:33
App has turned crappy over the years. Ads will appear everywhere and it’s not encrypted. Time to look for another similar app.
What the hell?
by Eme Lin on 2018/10/08 06:21
As a poet and songwriter I’ve used this app for years and basically watched it turn to crap. When I have an idea to write something I have to wait to exit out of a video, so bloop there goes the idea. I used to love the feature to lock my notes but honestly I find myself just using apple’s built-in notes app because my ideas are money that I rather not lose. I hate to do this because I have enjoyed this app for years and have enjoyed it. This update doesn’t even save my font settings. I went as far as rewriting everything in a journal because I can’t deal with how annoying this app is to use anymore.
Kicked out
by beyoutiful128 on 2018/10/08 02:17
I love this app. I use it very often but after the update it kicks me out of the app when I am scrolling through my notes. It is very frustrating. Please fix this issue so I can give 5 stars. Thank you!
Would be perfect if...
by KJEpic on 2018/10/07 21:00
The app sometimes deletes notes by itself. Would rate 5 if fixed.
Run, run, run
by Wichita guitar picker on 2018/10/07 03:27
I purchased this app when it first came out. After paying to remove the annoying ads years ago... they still stick annoying ads requesting one to pay $3.99 to remove them. It’s a scam.
No Predictive Text
by CLI-user on 2018/09/30 14:38
A recent version of this got rid of predictive text, so that now even the standard Notes app is easier to use. Why? Also, it takes an extra keystroke to access the custom keys, which use to be displayed at all times just above the keyboard. Can I roll this back to a previous version?
Love the app but.......
by Dmailmn on 2018/09/14 18:17
The older version you could change the background colors and font colors to your own likings. I used a black background and neon green letters as I play in a band and in dark rooms so it worked perfectly for that. Now, with the update, I don’t have that option anymore. Or if so, I need to know where it is.
Quick and clean
by Scamel61 on 2018/09/10 20:31
Did not like this app with adds but it is perfect now. I don’t have to refresh my memory about how to use the app every time I open it. Make new notes easy. Find old notes easy.
Love the ability to have notes in a category
by YorkiMama on 2018/09/06 07:37
I looked at several “note” programs, and this was the best one that didn’t just have specific notes, but the ability to have many notes listed under a category. I’ve used BluLines for years and love it!
The Best File System App

Stuck on “Processing...”
by BMAC200 on 2018/09/04 15:57
I went to open my notes app and it is stuck on “Processing...”. I have notes in there that I do not want to lose but can’t get to them. I emailed support almost 2 weeks ago and have received zero response. I am running the most recent version which was just updated yesterday. Please help.
Don’t use
by KimKAKD on 2018/09/03 18:01
I have had this app for a while and really liked using it, but I have now lost all of my data TWICE just from updating the app. I won’t be making this mistake again. No longer using this app because I can’t trust it to keep my data.
Absolutely essential
by Miguelando on 2018/09/02 18:47
This app is absolutely essential to everything I do. For everyone who needs to keep track of more than a few things and stay organized, this app is the way to go.
Option to open at most recent entry
by J McBride on 2018/08/17 19:28
This app is solid, I like it lots. I updated recently (after probably a long time) and found that every file now opens at the beginning/top of the entry, whereas before it opened at the bottom/end. I have a couple very long notes, and now I have to scroll all the way down to make an addition. I liked it better before, I’d love it it could be changed back or otherwise an option added in settings (if it is an option and I’m not seeing it, my apologies). Thanks!
Issue Update
by 1nothappy12 on 2018/08/16 13:42

Lost everything
by Lahsbsbna on 2018/08/15 00:22
After years of using this app, I can’t access all of my saved passwords and notes because of the new update. it is just stuck on a “processing” message. disappointing, hopefully they find a fix for this soon
Lost my saved data

Missing Notes

Horrible App update, lost 5+ years of notes!
by Dippalupscious on 2018/08/11 05:54
I have been a longtime user of this app and praised its security features! As of recently, I never had to update my phone or the app for that matter since I'm using an iPhone 6 there's no urgency for me. However, when the instance I finally did decide to update things and launched the app, everything was lost! All my notes for those 5+ years, gone. I noticed other users experiencing the same thing and hoped to wait it out for a new patch thereafter and even decided to email their customer service from their designated website. No patch, and no response from that email. I had teetered on the idea from just erasing my phone completely and backing up from 3 months ago just to see if I can my notes back, but after much research it would be fruitless. I'm honestly disappointed in how things turned up in this and it doesn't seem they are in the same urgency to realize how their users benefited from their app for a long time just to lose it all from an update. Kinda lost a lot of points in my book. I hope things can be rectified from this and that they are working on correcting this issue. Fingers crossed.
My notes disappeared
by JOE LN on 2018/08/08 20:49
I went onto the app, new screen, I followed instructions to back up data. Went to reload does not reload. Please help me, I have every customer contact info. on this app. I did not remove the app,. Please advise as soon as someone can.
Lost all notes to recent update.
by TRez058 on 2018/08/08 04:25
I used to love this app until the most recent update. I lost all my data/notes and I have not been able to retrieve my information yet. This is very frustrating as I used the app often. Please help!
This is a great app but...
by DeLiciouSVixen on 2018/08/02 18:32
I purchased this app when it first came out and there were no ads and it wasn’t a cheap app. I just now had to pay again to take the ads away. That seems ridiculous. You really should grandfather your old customers into the no ads plan. We shouldn’t have to pay twice. 🙄 Especially when the app was expensive to start.
Lost All My Data
by Ron Owen on 2018/08/02 07:43
Uploaded the new version and ALL my data was lost and the developer couldn’t retrieve it. Very dissatisfied!
My Notes are Back!!!
by GypsyChic on 2018/07/30 23:53
UPDATE: Thank you! Thank you! Whatever you did in this last update yesterday finally fixed the bug that was preventing me from restoring all of my notes back onto my iPhone 6+ BluLines App. So happy to have all of my notes back on both of my devices! It looks like the App on my two Apple devices will no longer Sync with one another though? I will check on that later this week. For now, just wanted to express my gratitude to the developers for sorting the bug out. ******************************************** New Version/Update Lost all my Notes on my iPhone 6+ My old iPad 3 is still running an old version of the BluLines App with my notes. I loved how the iCloud would sync my updated notes between my iPad / iPhone 6+. Unfortunately, the App updated on my phone to new version last night & lost all my notes. I’ve tried to restore from iCloud & from emailed backup file, but neither worked. The App crashed, so I deleted / downloaded fresh & now it won’t even open on my phone. SO frustrating, as I don’t always carry my old iPad with me & I have used this app pretty much exclusively for notes (going back at least 5 years I think). I really loved this App in the past. Please fix it, so I can try again to restore via iCloud sync from my old version of App.
Connection
by V.K 1977 on 2018/07/30 17:09
Before you could connect your app to the internet and work on your computer which was very nice. Now with the new update you can not do it anymore which is very bad
Everything was erased with the update??
by MandiSouza on 2018/07/30 07:05
I’ve used this app for years but after the recent automatic update, I opened the app to see ALL of my notes erased. Not a single folder is still there. I had years of important notes and folders in the app so I am very disappointed. I wish there was a way to get my old notes back?
Update
by Aiyana-Jade on 2018/07/29 14:39
I have a TBI so my notes are important and ever since the update I can’t open a few of them without the app crashing so it really bothers me if I knew updating would have done this I would not have.
My Documents are gone!!!!
by Juanitwo on 2018/07/29 06:30
Why my old files documents and notes are all gone when they update their App?... i cant retrieved all my important notes!!!!!😡
Do not update
by Hang Fun on 2018/07/25 17:51
I updated to a newer version. When completed and I opened the app, I lost ALL my notes, and data. I tried to retrieve through their suggestions and even emailed the app developer. NO response, NO data recovered. Will not use this app again.
Unable to back up or open
by Mobius No Last Name Given on 2018/07/25 14:59
I am unable to open your app after it was updated. The backup is unable to be sent since it is over 100mb, and even though I am connected to WiFi your app reads it as me not being connected, which makes it not send the backup, which makes me unable to open the app at all. I used this for a lot of things, but right now it is broken.
Update is terrible!
by redhot419 on 2018/07/24 23:08
I have used BluLines before it was even called BluLines. I have always loved it, it has been my go to when I recommend it to everybody I know. Now I cannot access any of my past folders, I see them but when I touch them it crashes. I’ve had to completely start over, 4 years of vital information is lost! It would never let me do a back up!
Crash
by Angel phace on 2018/07/24 15:12
After the new update, one of my folders with critical information stored won’t open and I’m unable to restore from backup or access via a link that was emailed. Really frustrating as I do not have that information stored anywhere else. It’s a complete loss. If this can’t be fixed I will delete the app and find something else. Maybe have to go back to old school save hard copy in filing cabinet!!
Lost My Notes

I also updated to the new version of the app. I didn't know I was going to lost all of my notes. Is there something I can do to recover my notes!
Just lost all my notes
by Ssowell on 2018/07/23 03:48
Overnight my phone must have updated or something, everything is gone. 5 years of info and no way to get it back. I was just bragging on this app and how efficient it was to have all my info at my fingertips. Not so now! It was GREAT before the update change.
I lost EVERYTHING
by PKStrohm on 2018/07/22 23:01
Worst transition to a “new version” of any app I have ever had. It wiped everything off of my phone with no notice. Garbage.
Bad upgrade
by falshh on 2018/07/22 22:21
Just did update. Lost some boys. The saved file isn’t restoring. I upgraded my iOS and app Still won’t open Good app hopefully just a bug
Please help!
by Kendalldp on 2018/07/22 20:38
Updating on iPad and followed instruction to backup first. Sent file to email. 99.9% info COMPLETELY GONE. Please tell me how to fix this. I have it on iPhone but afraid to open it lest I lose any info that could possibly still be on there.
DON'T UPGRADE
by Fish-Fish on 2018/07/20 23:05
I just upgraded to the latest version... I lost ALLmy notes. If the developer reads this please let me know how I can get my notes back. I am running IOS 10.3 on a 6S+ - Thank you
Loved it before.....but now, everything gone!
by Dkami on 2018/07/19 13:34
I used N+tes almost daily before two weeks ago. It had everything I needed to keep safe and secure, was easy to update and use. I was able to export info easily and it backed up to my iPad easily. Now with this new version, I’ve tried to restore all of my info and it only gives me an error message or locks up the app so I eventually have to delete the app again and start over. I sent an email backup in the npotes format, but this doesn’t seem to be able to sync with the new app. I can see it on my phone and even when I want to restore from backup, but it is greyed out so I can’t use it for backup. Have sent a few requests to the developers last week and the week before, but have since not received an answer. I have used this for 5-7 years now and don’t want to change apps, but I can’t lose all of my files. CAN’T! Please help! Before 2 weeks ago, would have given this app 5+ stars......now? More like 3 stars due to the past use, but it’s quickly dropping.
Lost all notes😡
by Top gunn on 2018/07/15 15:50
With this new update lost ALL Previous notes
Good basic app
by mmai19053 on 2018/07/15 15:06
I’ve used it for years, and it is just a good app. Never really a problem. I now have quite a lot data in my app and rely on it regular. I hope to use it for years.
Everything has been deleted!
by Pork & Beans 7 on 2018/07/14 19:45
You rebuilt the app & now I’ve lost everything even after saving to my email before update. Please tell me how to retrieve previous data!!!
Big update issue
by not work after update on 2018/07/14 08:21
Since the big update app crashes immediately
I love this app! But...
by MaddiJaylie on 2018/07/13 16:50
I love BluLines, but after this recent update, I can’t even open the app. Fix immediately please
Removing iCloud sync
by Game teacher131313 on 2018/07/13 12:56
Why would you remove the iCloud sync? That is why I loved this app. Now I have to go through a secondary for sync? Disappointing. I will be looking for another app that will go across all of my other devices. Now this app updated on my iPad and I lost EVERYTHIING! The back up did not work! Why would you create an update that does not transfer the original files!?!?
The pop up ads are obnoxious
by Jeeperscreepers97 on 2018/07/12 03:21
EVERY time I open the app I get an ad. Lately it’s been mostly videos that you have to wait on to use the app. I’m about to transfer all my notes to another app if this keeps up.
BACKUP YOUR NOTES IF YOU UPDATE
by dan297 on 2018/07/08 13:27
DO NOT UPDATE UNLESS YOU’VE BACKED UO YOUR NOTES! I’ve lost years of notes.
Can’t open backup email file!
by Mccopnpd on 2018/07/07 19:48
Great App but why have a backup if you can’t open it!
SMH
by Joe Web 0212 on 2018/06/05 13:41
This app was by far the best offline note taking app in the App Store. I think it still has a chance to regain its notoriety but they should fix the features for exporting/importing notes.
No ad option was a waste of money!
by jedawson007 on 2018/04/02 21:31
I purchase no ads option. Still have pop up ads! The ads cause the app to freeze up. You have to close app and open again.
Too many ads
by mj4949 on 2018/03/29 13:56
The amount of ads on this app has significantly increased. Nearly every time you return to the app, there is another ad, even if you had it open thirty seconds ago. Video ads are now playing too. Searching for a new notes app with fewer annoying ads.
Works
by Nick Schager on 2018/03/27 18:57
You need notes Great app for the job The ads are troublesome Charge us free users 2$ to block the ads but still allow free users notes 🤓 this probably won’t be read but erm thanks!
I LOVE THIS APP
by Katriel613 on 2018/02/27 20:10
I Have nothing but good things to say! It works great on my I pad 4th generation. And also just put it on my I Phone 6 plus. I hope that when it’s time to update it will update me to the BluLines 2. But we will see. I would for sure recommend it.
Great app but thinking of deleting
by Moose42013 on 2018/02/21 12:48
Please get rid of the opening ads. Love the app but the ad is so annoying I’m looking for a new note app. Love how organized I can be and how my categories can have categories!
Good app :)
by Hithereyay on 2018/01/30 03:45
I had this app for years, chock full of random stories from my younger years. Today, I wanted to go back and read them so I opened the app up for the first time in a while and everything is gone. All my notes, all my folders, everything. I’ve had the same phone so nothing would’ve gotten lost. I’ve had the same iCloud. I really hope I’m missing something or I’m just plain mistaken but as of right now I’m confused and upset. Please help! Is there anything I can do?? wAIT NO NVM everything’s back. I’m not sure what I did but that was quite the scare. Ai ai ai. Sorry for that.
Nice App
by BigAggie on 2017/12/21 21:06
This would be a sure four star and maybe a 5 star if I didn’t have to mess with the stupid ads. Not only the ads, the products you advertise are stupid. Get a life.
Please get RID of ADS when trying to open the app
by 12345zxcvbqwertyuippkhg on 2017/12/09 07:59
I hate these dumb ads which I don’t even read or look at. I bet you get 0% return on these because everyone goes immediately to the “ no thanks“ button. The problem is, when you do choose the no thanks option, the ad doesn’t go away! In fact it either never goes away and I have to reopen the app or I have to get out of the screen, do something else and then come back to it. This is a huge flaw and I’m about ready to delete the whole thing and transfer my notes elsewhere. PLEASE FIX THIS!
Please help
by Mynamesjoshdude on 2017/11/29 04:14
Dear RIE Unlimited, A long time ago, I downloaded Notes+, which has since changed to its current name. I have a couple thousand files on it. I think around August or September of 2016, it started going screwy for me. It would crash after a few seconds of it being open, and I didn't download the new update because I saw reviews that said that once a you did, all your files were deleted. So I held out, and attempted to back up my files from BluLines to either DropBox, iCloud, and the other suggested ways, but because of the crashing it wouldn't work. I don't think it was going to work anyway. But now, I've updated my phone to iOS11, and when I try to click on the app it won't even open because it needs to be updated. I see you have a new update ready, but I'm afraid everything will be gone if I download it. I'm afraid that everything's gone anyway because I updated to iOS11. There is a back up of my phone on my iTunes on my computer, but that was done just after I got iOS11. So again, my fear is that everything has been erased, and that now that I've backed up my phone to my computer after getting iOS11 that the previous back up which was not with iOS11 is gone and all my files from your app are just gone. I apologize for the long email, but I would greatly appreciate your help. I just want to have the confidence that my data will still be there before I just do something and it's all gone. Much of my life is on that app, so I'm being as cautious as possible. Thanks, A concerned customer
This WAS my favorite app! And it is one of my favorites again!
by Frustrated N+OTES USER!!!!! on 2017/11/22 03:32
Update 1.0- So far this app has worked fine since a couple years ago when I had issues with it so I'm back to 4 stars. It would be 5 stars if it weren't for those problems. Update- still a 1 star. Since I've had the problems with this app which for some reason is now "BluNotes" I've started transferring my important notes to the Notes section of my address book. I can only type in the info or cut and copy then paste it there but it seems to work fine. For some the notes that I can't associate with a contact I put the name of the subject for the notes in the first and last name section and then scroll down to the notes section and put my info there. You can save files or pics or a lot of things you can with this app but I hVent lost any of the notes I've put there like I did with this app. Changed from a 3-4 year old 4S to a 6 yesterday, I have been trying ever since to get N+OTES to work since. I backed up everything to e-mail and to Dropbox but when I try to" Import and Replace" a window pops up that says- ERROR Unexpected error while replacing data file OK. So I also sent a message to the developer but have heard anything back yet. Any help from anyone would be appreciated. I can still get to some of the notes on my Ipad mini but I don't know how long that will last.
Love!
by CrissiTN on 2017/11/22 03:09
I've had this app for years and use it daily. Love it! I don't like the ads but $6.99 is pretty high but then again I don't know what additional features we'd get with ad-free app. Elaborate? Even with the ads, five stars!
Crashing
by Jufifufuffu on 2017/11/19 07:29
App keeps crashing with new iPhone 8. Won’t stay open. Restarted phone several times
I can't backup anything!
by Artistic and awesome on 2017/11/15 21:09
I'm going to be getting a new phone soon so I want to backup all my notes somewhere that I can safely keep them and know they'll be okay during the switch. My iCloud storage says that it's full. I try to backup to Dropbox (even downloaded the Dropbox app like it says to) and signing in just does nothing, nothing happens. I try to email it like it says and the email is unable to be sent, it just doesn't work. I plug into my computer to try and download it online through a web browser, but there is no way to save all the notes easily. I have to copy and paste each individual note in my computer if I'm to save it. And that doesn't even work because the browser randomly decides that it suddenly can't find the page and I have to exit and come back which takes way too long. All I want is to save my freaking notes somewhere that isn't in this app but it won't let me. My last option I think is copying and pasting each note into something that DOES work on my phone and saving it that way. Ridiculous! This app is great for taking organized notes but the inability to transport them is a huge disadvantage. My suggestion to anyone thinking of spending years writing in an app to find something else that has less of a chance of your hard work going to waste. If I had known it would be this hard to move notes I never would have gotten this app.
Crash!
by Bsneath on 2017/11/08 16:15
I have loved this app for couple years. Trying to get in now and it just crashes. Please help as I have tons of notes in here.
Passcode not working right
by Debbietalk G on 2017/10/17 04:10
Passcode set to “on”- yet When I sign into the app it’s not asking for passcode. If I go out and immediately back in it asks for passcode. But if I clear my history, it automatically goes to my folders without passcode. NOT HELPFUL!
*angry face*
by DrFierce12 on 2017/10/13 13:51
For some reason, the new update just erased all my info😤😠😤😠😤😠😤😠😤😠😤😠😤😠
Insecure since iOS 11 upgrade
by ksuan on 2017/10/11 18:03
Update 10/11 - it’s still not fixed, and now is totally insecure. I have to remove it from my phone. Stop thinking about widgets and focus on security!! Is anyone listening?? Since upgrading my iPhone 6s+ I can just open this app without entering my security code - this is bad. Please fix ASAP?
Security Code
by Jip0428 on 2017/10/07 19:44
I really like this app but it needs to be updated. No matter how many times I change the settings and require a code to open it up, it still opens without a security code.
Issue
by Lil Heathen on 2017/10/03 15:00
New iphone 8. Passcode not functioning now on new phone. Opens right up with no passcode prompt. I use this for all my passcodes. Please fix.
Love it... needs IOS 11 upgrade compatibility
by Tsassenach on 2017/10/02 02:48
Have lost my password protection for app since newest iphone upgrade happened. (Yes..made sure option was chosen in settings! ) this Is the first issue ive had with app. Use it for many notes and folders! Easy to use and loved the password protection. Need it back!!
iOS 11 —passcode not required anymore to open
by Clmcnm on 2017/09/28 18:25
This app worked great for putting a passcode on notes. Before iOS 11, the passcode was required every time I opened the app which is how I wanted it to work. After iOS 11 install, I can open app and read notes without entering the passcode. It only asks for the passcode if I leave the app open, go do something else and then come back to the app. Not good. Now I’m locking notes in my iCloud notes app.
Easy to use
by RJLupin1031 on 2017/08/23 03:03
I have been using this app for over 4 years now and I find it very easy to use. I absolutely love the browser connect option for extracting and adding to current notes/files. I noticed that recently though any of my changes made while in browser connect wont save unless I delete something. It saves everything I delete. So i open my notes back up later and there are fragments of sentences missing, gobberish. Once I figured out that it doesnt save any added changes, i definitely won't be using browser connect mode until an update fixes that. Otherwise tho, this is my go to app for writing and saving files!
Need some fixing
by NamikazeHime on 2017/05/12 15:18
I personally like this app because it organizes your notes into folders and such. You can get a back up sent to your email, but after the recent update. The email backup doesn't seem to be working. Please fix this!
Frustrating
by BaronScarpia on 2017/04/11 19:22
The app itself is great. But now a video game pops up when I open the app. I paid for an ad free version and I don't want this intrusion. I'm deleting the app.
Lost All My Notes
by Concorde1997 on 2017/04/04 17:55
Epic failure. The app worked well enough for a couple of years. But, I recently discovered that all of my notes have mysteriously vanished. Above all else, a note taking app must reliably maintain the entered notes.
ALMOST perfect!!
by Ashygirl2005 on 2019/02/02 02:16
As a writer I use this app and my notes tend to get pretty long… it would be useful if you added a feature that took you to the bottom of a note you were writing, since some of my notes are well over 20k words and all that scrolling is just a pain. Thanks!
If no problems, no problems.
by Hero_Underground on 2020/01/21 22:58
I have used this app for at least four and a half years. I have used it for personal use and several hobbies that I have wanted to document along the way. I recently had a lot of notes building up and I knew I needed to do a backup. I did my normal backup on this app and shortly after everything was wiped out. I didn’t think anything about losing everything because I knew I had a backup. I tried to reload my backup multiple times and I got nothing. I reset my phone. I tried to load my backup with WiFi on and off and no luck either way. Still nothing. I thought I would take my issue up with an email to the company. I sent them an email a week ago hoping to get a response. Honestly, since this company is a tech company I am disappointed with their customer service option. I have only been able to contact them with email and no live chat support. So far, they have not contacted me about my backup or the issues I have had. I loved this app and I would have easily given them a five star review until I had problems and they ditched me, the customer.
So annoyed!
by IamRaynaBrown on 2018/12/24 08:51
I'm really annoyed. I use this app daily, several times a day. I have hundreds of notes. First of all, I lost a great deal of notes in the upgrade a while ago. :-( Second, THE ADDS!!! I paid for the lifetime upgrade when I first got the app. I am an artist and use this for lyric support and now have to wait for the add to pull up my lyrics etc. even when you X out it still goes to the add and you have to go back to the app. Either the adds go or I go or at least refund my money for the upgrades. I am also frustrated with the fact that everything triples and quadruples when I try to sync between devices. Looking for a new app to utilize!!! Very disappointed!!
Still works great for me!
by slamdunk406 on 2020/09/08 05:04
I’ve been using BluLines for several years and it still works great for me! I have the free version, so I have to deal with adds, but aside from that, it’s great. And if you want to get rid of adds, you can always purchase the upgraded non-ads version. Just wanted to put the plug in for this app since I’ve seen a lot of overly negative reviews. The app is still great for taking and organizing notes. Backing up is also pretty easy.
What the hell?
by Eme Lin on 2018/10/08 06:21
As a poet and songwriter I’ve used this app for years and basically watched it turn to crap. When I have an idea to write something I have to wait to exit out of a video, so bloop there goes the idea. I used to love the feature to lock my notes but honestly I find myself just using apple’s built-in notes app because my ideas are money that I rather not lose. I hate to do this because I have enjoyed this app for years and have enjoyed it. This update doesn’t even save my font settings. I went as far as rewriting everything in a journal because I can’t deal with how annoying this app is to use anymore.
Lost notes found!
by beckydawn on 2019/04/15 13:52
Thought I’d lost all of my notes after the last upgrade but remembered to turn the phone off for a soft reset and there they were 🙃 AGAIN!!! I have so many notes in each folder that it would be wonderful if there was a way to search for the one particular item I’m looking for instead of searching the whole list - it’s too cumbersome the way I have to do it now- otherwise I love this app ❤️❤️❤️ and would give it 5 stars ⭐️
Use at your own risk
by Amorriz on 2019/03/23 17:38
I haven’t used this app in years. I’m still angry about all the notes I’ve lost while using this app. Apple notes has come a long way and is still my reliable source for retaining all my crucial notes. Ultimately no one app is trustworthy, so always backup your notes no matter what you use. Apps like these are usually vulnerable when an update occurs. If data is lost, there’s almost no way to recover this information leaving you helpless. So I caution anyone to trust especially a third party app. The features they offer are great, but none of that matters with no data.
Highlighting and enhanced text
by Ohitsjoy on 2020/08/26 11:26
I have been using this app for several years. I believe I have purchased additional features. However, I find that features I enjoyed I no longer have - such as the ability to highlight in several colors, colored text, insertion of date etc. However I am not sure if I turned off something in error. I contacted Support but no one has reached out. This is quite disconcerting to me. Kindly assist.
Love the ability to have notes in a category
by YorkiMama on 2018/09/06 07:37
I looked at several “note” programs, and this was the best one that didn’t just have specific notes, but the ability to have many notes listed under a category. I’ve used BluLines for years and love it!
Perfection many functions
by Ndidhdfhcncn on 2020/01/06 06:53
Has flaws, doesn’t always safe it’s info that I write
Quick and clean
by Scamel61 on 2018/09/10 20:31
Did not like this app with adds but it is perfect now. I don’t have to refresh my memory about how to use the app every time I open it. Make new notes easy. Find old notes easy.
Absolutely essential
by Miguelando on 2018/09/02 18:47
This app is absolutely essential to everything I do. For everyone who needs to keep track of more than a few things and stay organized, this app is the way to go.
App suddenly won’t work
by Briwha6 on 2019/02/23 22:10
I foolishly trusted this app with a good bit of info and it suddenly will not open and I no longer have access to the info / notes. I’ve emailed support multiple times and they have not responded. I recently downloaded the latest update to the app, hoping that maybe it was a bug they had fixed, but I’m still getting the same problem. I won’t use it anymore, but I want my notes back.

Love the app but.......
by Dmailmn on 2018/09/14 18:17
The older version you could change the background colors and font colors to your own likings. I used a black background and neon green letters as I play in a band and in dark rooms so it worked perfectly for that. Now, with the update, I don’t have that option anymore. Or if so, I need to know where it is.
Info added isn’t staying saved
by Hurricane3! on 2019/11/25 01:50
I use this app all the time & come back & make changes to notes, add new notes, rearrange things & when I come back to the not it doesn’t have the information saved. Please get this fixed as I use this app constantly. I will happily change my rating after its fixed I just need it to keep all the information i am changing on the app.
Navigate
by Lou&# on 2020/01/20 21:33
I thought this app would work for me. I showed certain items I needed as well as color & sizing of text also bold, underline, & etc that I wanted. Said go to features which is not in the free version. If the free version doesn’t have that then I need to move on & find one that does cause that could be a deal breaker. Pls advise.
Browser connect feature gone ?
by BrowserConnect on 2018/12/22 18:09
This app used to be able to open a connection to edit your notes in a web browser. It was the feature that kept me using this app. Is this feature gone in the recent updates ?
Is this an ads app or a notes app?
by Plumb bacon on 2019/08/29 20:47
Advertisements all the time. Many with sound that interrupt what you’re listening to. Many ads are long and they purposely hide the x so you can’t skip it. Many times when you skip it you end up getting sent to the ad page. It’s gotten extremely annoying. Do not get.
Kicked out
by beyoutiful128 on 2018/10/08 02:17
I love this app. I use it very often but after the update it kicks me out of the app when I am scrolling through my notes. It is very frustrating. Please fix this issue so I can give 5 stars. Thank you!
No Predictive Text
by CLI-user on 2018/09/30 14:38
A recent version of this got rid of predictive text, so that now even the standard Notes app is easier to use. Why? Also, it takes an extra keystroke to access the custom keys, which use to be displayed at all times just above the keyboard. Can I roll this back to a previous version?
Inappropriate Ads Popping Up
by Financial Blitz on 2019/06/19 20:43
Pop up ads are bad enough but recently the same inappropriate ad has been popping up on my phone. I could not immediately delete or close it and the ad automatically started with sound. I originally got this app when no adds existed. I am looking for a new app.
Stuck on “Processing...”
by BMAC200 on 2018/09/04 15:57
I went to open my notes app and it is stuck on “Processing...”. I have notes in there that I do not want to lose but can’t get to them. I emailed support almost 2 weeks ago and have received zero response. I am running the most recent version which was just updated yesterday. Please help.
Gone South
by CaptData on 2019/05/05 10:46
No support. Emailed them several time with NOTHING response. Can’t backup from the backup file. Lots of data on the line. It worked when I bought it doesn’t anymore. I will NEVER buy any of their apps and suggest you don’t either.
Done
by pokefan749 on 2019/03/13 16:57
Several times I have spent a good amount of time making important changes to current lIsts only to have them revert back to where I started and I lost everything. I’m looking for a new app now. I used to like this app but with this and all the ads that won’t go away I'm just done.
Don’t use
by KimKAKD on 2018/09/03 18:01
I have had this app for a while and really liked using it, but I have now lost all of my data TWICE just from updating the app. I won’t be making this mistake again. No longer using this app because I can’t trust it to keep my data.
The ads are full screen & insanely obnoxious
by a sad former user on 2019/06/08 13:44
Don’t even bother. Loved this app before it decided to ruin itself. Full screen ads that lock until you hit “install” on whatever video game spam they’re selling. Great job, team. Fantastic ruination of your product.
The Best File System App

Recovery
by catmeldo on 2012/12/15 21:42
I made the rookie mistake of cleaning my screen with N+otes turned on ( open and on the screen ). I was using a Zeiss Lens Cloth and my gestures were being read quite clearly. A micro cloth does no do this. Anyway... My gestures created a bizarre situation where some of my folders were gone, others noted that they had various quantities of notes inside them but they could not be seen. I could have restarted the iPad but I felt that might mean losing my notes. The "all notes" folder did show all my note so I went about the process of highlighting the note, select all, Cut, then pasting the note in an existing or newly created folder and adding a 'c' to the end of the first line so I'd know that it was really moved. There were some other weird things that happened but long story short ... I shutdown the iPad and restarted it. Upon opening N+otes the missing folders had returned but the notes were no longer inside because they had been moved to the new folders. I deleted one of the old and empty folders after which the notes in the new folders were no longer visible. Restarting the iPad brought them back but deleting another of the old and empty folders had the same result. So after the second or third restart I deleted the last three old and empty folders, restarted and now all seems fine. What a job. Of course, simply restarting at the beginning of all this mayhem might have fixed everything but I didn't want to take the chance.
Run, run, run
by Wichita guitar picker on 2018/10/07 03:27
I purchased this app when it first came out. After paying to remove the annoying ads years ago... they still stick annoying ads requesting one to pay $3.99 to remove them. It’s a scam.
Can’t reload
by mcgyve on 2020/04/22 16:16
Been using for years now, can’t reload data from a backup whether it’s BluLines or Dropbox Very disappointed, all my equipment data is sitting there but won’t reload
Would be perfect if...
by KJEpic on 2018/10/07 21:00
The app sometimes deletes notes by itself. Would rate 5 if fixed.
Wiped out
by Wiped All Out on 2020/04/08 20:18
I’ve had this app for several years and when I updated it, all of my notes were wiped clean... nothing left. I’ve emailed their support email and have heard nothing back yet. Hopefully I will.
I loved this app when it was still NOTES but...
by dianne0830 on 2018/12/04 03:33
App has turned crappy over the years. Ads will appear everywhere and it’s not encrypted. Time to look for another similar app.
LOUD ADS!
by Jayjay434 on 2019/12/06 22:24
Every time I open the app a VERY OBNOXIOUS LOUD VIDEO AD plays with no way to change in settings. I deleted the app because of this. I could never open the app when in public. I get having ads, but this is just rude!
Backups not working
by Francophilee on 2020/03/23 21:38
2020 version updates - backup files are 176 kB ie data is not getting backed up in iCloud drives nor sent as email - is it bug or intentional for free version
UNSAFE
by Not much to it on 2020/02/13 12:25
Test it first. Back up doesn’t work. Eventually you will lose everything.

Need a way to send in message.
This WAS my favorite app! And it is one of my favorites again!
by Frustrated N+OTES USER!!!!! on 2017/11/22 03:32
Update 1.0- So far this app has worked fine since a couple years ago when I had issues with it so I'm back to 4 stars. It would be 5 stars if it weren't for those problems. Update- still a 1 star. Since I've had the problems with this app which for some reason is now "BluNotes" I've started transferring my important notes to the Notes section of my address book. I can only type in the info or cut and copy then paste it there but it seems to work fine. For some the notes that I can't associate with a contact I put the name of the subject for the notes in the first and last name section and then scroll down to the notes section and put my info there. You can save files or pics or a lot of things you can with this app but I hVent lost any of the notes I've put there like I did with this app. Changed from a 3-4 year old 4S to a 6 yesterday, I have been trying ever since to get N+OTES to work since. I backed up everything to e-mail and to Dropbox but when I try to" Import and Replace" a window pops up that says- ERROR Unexpected error while replacing data file OK. So I also sent a message to the developer but have heard anything back yet. Any help from anyone would be appreciated. I can still get to some of the notes on my Ipad mini but I don't know how long that will last.
I can't backup anything!
by Artistic and awesome on 2017/11/15 21:09
I'm going to be getting a new phone soon so I want to backup all my notes somewhere that I can safely keep them and know they'll be okay during the switch. My iCloud storage says that it's full. I try to backup to Dropbox (even downloaded the Dropbox app like it says to) and signing in just does nothing, nothing happens. I try to email it like it says and the email is unable to be sent, it just doesn't work. I plug into my computer to try and download it online through a web browser, but there is no way to save all the notes easily. I have to copy and paste each individual note in my computer if I'm to save it. And that doesn't even work because the browser randomly decides that it suddenly can't find the page and I have to exit and come back which takes way too long. All I want is to save my freaking notes somewhere that isn't in this app but it won't let me. My last option I think is copying and pasting each note into something that DOES work on my phone and saving it that way. Ridiculous! This app is great for taking organized notes but the inability to transport them is a huge disadvantage. My suggestion to anyone thinking of spending years writing in an app to find something else that has less of a chance of your hard work going to waste. If I had known it would be this hard to move notes I never would have gotten this app.
Security Flaw
by UBASMART1 on 2015/09/29 21:22
I give this app five stars because it's an awesome app which I use every day and appreciate immensely however I titled it security flaw because, least on your iPhone when you double-click your home button, as you know, the app minimizes along with any other apps that are currently open. Security minded apps will generally ONLY show a minimized version of the login screen (the keypad). That's the exact fix needed. Otherwise here's the problem/here's what happens: EVEN IF you have you have "PASSWORD LOCK" (my original proposal) set to "immediately", you can still easily read the contents of your secure notes once minimized and you can even read the contents of that minimized note once you switch to another app and then return to your N+ote. Major issue but I believe it's an easy fix for Rieu, although I have asked for in the past.I still give it five stars because it *will* be a five-star app following that security fix. Thank you.
My Notes are Back!!!
by GypsyChic on 2018/07/30 23:53
UPDATE: Thank you! Thank you! Whatever you did in this last update yesterday finally fixed the bug that was preventing me from restoring all of my notes back onto my iPhone 6+ BluLines App. So happy to have all of my notes back on both of my devices! It looks like the App on my two Apple devices will no longer Sync with one another though? I will check on that later this week. For now, just wanted to express my gratitude to the developers for sorting the bug out. ******************************************** New Version/Update Lost all my Notes on my iPhone 6+ My old iPad 3 is still running an old version of the BluLines App with my notes. I loved how the iCloud would sync my updated notes between my iPad / iPhone 6+. Unfortunately, the App updated on my phone to new version last night & lost all my notes. I’ve tried to restore from iCloud & from emailed backup file, but neither worked. The App crashed, so I deleted / downloaded fresh & now it won’t even open on my phone. SO frustrating, as I don’t always carry my old iPad with me & I have used this app pretty much exclusively for notes (going back at least 5 years I think). I really loved this App in the past. Please fix it, so I can try again to restore via iCloud sync from my old version of App.
Great basic notes program, but has a minor security bug
by goatcheeseisyummy on 2013/02/25 19:31
This is great basic program for notes. The layout is very simple and easy to use and overall has a very organized feel. Additionally, it always runs smoothly and has never crashed or frozen up on me. The one complaint I have though is that there is a minor bug in the password feature. I turned on the feature to password protect the app and I works fine as long as the app is on the home screen (folder veiw) when you close it out. But, if you leave the app while you have a document open, when you switch back to the app it does not require you to enter your password. Overall, it's not a huge problem but I would really like it to be fixed.
💗💗 Love this app! 💗💗
by Black Magic5683 on 2015/10/25 16:26
I love this app! I am glad that I found it. It allows me to change and customize my themes, buttons, paper, and so forth to my liking. Unlimited notes as far as disk space on your phone will allow is also nice. If I wanted to, I can even password protect my notes by enabling Password Protection in the settings. That is also nice. The other features of the app including photos, audio recording, and video clip attachments, is ok. It even allows for the creation of folders to keep certain notes separate and organized in proper folders! Outstanding! You can even move notes from folder to folder if needed! I have an iPhone6+, and I have not had any problems with it whatsoever! Thanks for a superb app! Don't ever delete this off the App Store! I like it to much to see it go!
Easy to use
by RJLupin1031 on 2017/08/23 03:03
I have been using this app for over 4 years now and I find it very easy to use. I absolutely love the browser connect option for extracting and adding to current notes/files. I noticed that recently though any of my changes made while in browser connect wont save unless I delete something. It saves everything I delete. So i open my notes back up later and there are fragments of sentences missing, gobberish. Once I figured out that it doesnt save any added changes, i definitely won't be using browser connect mode until an update fixes that. Otherwise tho, this is my go to app for writing and saving files!
GREAT ! needs some updates though
by Dobber29 on 2012/08/28 16:02
This is a GREAT app! it is my main note-taking app over Pages, which i only use for essays and presentations and stuff like that. What i really like about this app is how organized it is, with the use of folders very easy to access on the side. And also the notebook layout is one of the main reasons i use it, it gives more of a traditional feel. However, i would really like to see some updates such as different fonts, italics bold and underline, and importing pictures into your notes. These would all be helpful approvements to an already great app. If your thinking where you should write your notes, this app is definitely it.
Elegant UI, pinching, swiping, plus useful options
by ColoradoRanger on 2012/09/26 20:21
This is just what I was looking for! The features that made this app different from all the others I tested include 1) app navigation on only one edge of the screen when in a note (leaving more screen space for the note itself), 2) pinching a note to enlarge or diminish the type size, in portrait and landscape, with the note rewrapping instead of going past the screen edge, and 3) swiping from side to side to move from note to note. This app also includes nice features like foldered organization, theme choices (purchase), and three fonts (including simple and clean helvetica, which is all I need). Quite nice for FREE! Thank you.
Excellent notes app with folders
by some_yahoo on 2012/09/23 19:04
This app is a great replacement for the standard iOS Notes app. I was looking for an easy-to-use app with a simple interface to capture notes quickly, that would also allow me to iorganize my notes into folders. I also needed the app to work on my iphone 4s and my first-gen iPad with simple, seamless icloud syncing. This app fits the bill. It also has a nice set of features such as selecting fonts and themes to make it easy to customize to my personal tastes. Last but not least it has a built-in passcode lock feature to keep those spying eyes off of your personal stuff. Great job on this app guys!
Won't Save new files; won't delete old files.
by Apps-junkie on 2013/01/27 22:45
Iphone 5 & iPad2. This was a good app, sometime before the last 2 or 3 upgrades (mid- Dec 12). At first I thought the problem was syncing to icloud. The free program worked if you don't sync to iCloud OR do a backup. (the prices on subscriptions & the full app is way to high for this type of App. There are many other better apps out there, but once I did like this one). Others complained, but no fixes seemed to be have been made yet. I tried today (upgrade was just released) and I did a iCloud sync, I didn't trust it, but it seemed to work. So, I downloaded my backup from December. All downloaded ok. But once again, any file I delete, comes back again (even after rebooting my phone completely). Any file I add, does not get saved after I close out the app completely.
