- (2019-12-14) Mojtaba Vahdati: This has the potential to be a 5 star definitely. But this app can have thousands of users if: 1_ Users could sync their notes instead of the old import/export method. 2_ why is the top of the first line of all new notes paled white? you have to start writing from second line to avoid that! 3_ if there was a keyboard shortcut key for initiating a note and for submitting the notes faster. Currently I hit ESC on my keyboard to save the notes faster but ESC is scary... My suggestion is CTRL+Enter. Thank you.

Hi there. Great extension, I'd love to be able to filter notes by colors and/or simple tabs, it would look more organized and it's much faster to look for a color than text or even type in the search bar. It's already great, but I know that in my case the color and/or tabs is what is mising for me to use your extension. Regards,

(A reply to your answer - Google's webstore only lets me reply to questions, not answers) JSON format would be fine - by 'human readable' I mean 'able to read the text (and ideally the tags) if I need to without loading the app'. For example, I may need access to my notes from a mobile or computer that doesn't use Chrome, or can't have the app installed (internet cafe machine). In fact, JSON would be ideal, as that lets me process my existing text-based notes to produce a JSON format I can upload. I'll give your app a try - haven't had chance yet, and was reluctant to trust it with my existing notes if it only stored them locally. However, I've noticed a new version is available that asks to manage downloads, so I assume that's to save and load the notes... I would need the app to automatically sync with Google Drive for it to replace my current solution, but realise these things take time to code. Keep up the good work!

Are the notes saved locally or in the cloud? I use several machines, so it would be useful to be able to access them on every machine without having to transfer them manually. At the moment I store my notes in a Google Doc file, but I like the idea of tagging them to make it easier to organise. Google keep doesn't quite do this in an easy way. I suggest adding the ability to store the notes in text form in Google drive for this purpose, to allow them to be read on any machine by this app and also allow them to be read by a human using a text editor for recovery purposes.
