Over the weekend, Brett Terpstra update to nvALT to use the newer Simperium sync API, rather than Simplenote’s legacy syncing API. Which means nvALT syncing with Simplenote is now faster and more reliable.
In January, when I looked at Simplenote alternatives, I mentioned a bug that existed when using nvALT and Simplenote syncing. In my testing so far with the newest version of nvALT, the previous bug appears to be squashed. New notes created in Simplenote, do not lose any data on their initial sync with nvALT. Brett Terpstra is my hero.
