This is a very handy and useful tool. I use it every time i write an essay so that i don't forget the things i want to discuss or use in my essay. Not sure why it only has 3 stars. Does everything you need it to right and i've never had any problems with this app. love it.

Pretty cool, can help with saving a bit of information or outlines without cluttering your actual writing space. It is useful. :)

Yay... It does something Gdocs already does with its outline feature, but, y'know, it's a separate add-on. I was hoping to get a notepad to use between documents that I could access from chapter to chapter without having to use the Gdocs outline or third-party/offline notepad. Quite disappointed.

a little bit troubling to use at first since it won't start but i was able to start it up eventually. it would be better if we are able to add more notes than just one though to separate from one thing to another so it could be a little bit more organized

There's nothing particularly noteworthy to this app. It's just as the screenshot shows: a plain box to type in. No text format, no highlighting to add a note, nothing. It's like using Microsoft Notepad. Well... at least you can change the font in MS Notepad.

Sidenote has been an absolute lifesaver, providing me with a separate space to dump thoughts and notes without having to use a separate app or scroll through docs. Haven't experienced any problems with it and appreciate its simplicity, though basic word formatting (bold, italic) and the option to have it start automatically when opening docs (if that's possible) would be helpful additions in the future.

Works just fine for me! I've seen quite a few reviews stating otherwise but i haven't had any issues with it. I only wish that it had more text formatting options for the text box, like bullet points/outlining and italicize/bold/underline, etc. Convenient for making notes on the side while writing so I don't forget to add parts into later scenes or to keep thematic schemes in mind while writing.
