I had already login Parchi via Outlook account for Backup & Restore before phone upgraded. After that unable to see any notes with same login...
It's really annoying for a Windows Phone user that this app is not available for Windows Phone. I am happy to use Android now. If you are not able to make this app or any of your apps for Android and iOS to Windows Phone OS, then don't expect us to use Windows.
the whole app. has now become a crap... not able to save anything.. that supposed to be its basic function.. but its not doing even that... when try to save it bring me out of the app
I am rating this application based on a certain matrix such as user interface, concept, innovation, usabillity, Similar application in the same domain. Application is based on tags which is very effective to note down things. User interface at first seems little confusing but after certain time you can get used to it. There are many similar application out in market so there is nothing innovative but concept is extremely well. The application is very useful if you find difficulty in noting thing old way.
Only best app from MS to droid after onedrive. The app is simple unlike onenote, which is major plus. Give option to scroll images taken in single note, its hard to unlock device each time to check more images in single note.
1. Widget 2. Ability to lock the notes with passwords and if possible then fingerprint scanner 3. Small loading circle 4. Don't open the keyboard automatically when I try to view the note
Those people complaining why this app is not on windows. Simple reason... This app is a Microsoft garage project. That is it is made by independent developers funded by Microsoft. If these developer do not want to make anything for windows, whose fault is it?
A nice tool on the lines is Sticky Notes in Windows 7. But as of now, despite enabling the option, I'm unable to see the lock screen widget on my RedMi 1S (MiUI 7). Please look into it :)
Very good app, with lots of potential... Some additional features reqired.. Like. Repeated alarms, daily review of reminders etc.. Gets automatically signed out.... Developers.. Please fix this.
Great app nails the user problem very well but would be much better if the first run experience/user on boarding is slightly more comprehensive in terms of every feature.
Dear developers, I use your very own Next locker from Microsoft. I don't see it supporting Parchi. What the f**k!!!
I hv already suggested Google keep for pin feature but don't know why Google thinks user all notes should be safe. Even others apps in store give that facility. Keep and parchi almost same but this new screen lock feature I like it. But plz add pin feature too. I'm waiting.
Easy note taking on a locked phone while on call...puts this one on my top charts.. Great work Microsoft!!!
Huge scope for Improvements to match make this app productivity Ninja 1) Kindly introduce facility to pin 2-3 important notes on top of all other notes, it will help to handle current inhand works/projects 1)Enable Indenting in Check List to list out sub-tasks or sub-items 2)Highlight hashtagged items in search result 3) Enable Notes & Checklists simultaneously in a single note 4)Hide Completed checklist item or at least move them to bottom 5) Recurring reminders is a must for making this app a habit,
Please make sure the lock screen widget is active all the time. It pushes me to use more. Ease of access is always good.
1. If we enable lock screen widget, screen is not going off for the chosen sleep time. 2. Notes dashboard screen is not looking nice.
Add location...will be of great use...not refreshing with multiple devices..entered note online did not refresh in the app. Please fix this
It has no option of reapeating a particular note,weekly,monthly,etc. Adding these features would really help
Simplicity of this app makes it better than so many other so called advance but clumsy apps. It is worthy of its name.
1.Need widget, 2. Need sync with onenote. 3.try more easy to edit..
1. Synchronization 2.please provide some more colors 3.security feature(includes fingerprint)
Lock screen widget not working, it didn't show up most of the time after locking the screen. Need to open the app and then it apears. Same loop
When trying to access sign in or sign up for backup/restore, if the microsoft lens app is also installed, the process freezes.. Test that.
pls make it available with third party lock screen to jot down notes. presently the app works only with oem lockscreen.
I am using Next Lock Screen. It won't work unless I activate system lock screen of any security.
Can't rearrange the order of lists. Can't rearrange items on a list. Inputs from gestures such as swipe and long hold not used. It's a hassle to delete items on a list as the item does get selected (text can be altered / entered) but the tiny "x" delete button does not appear at times (this happens to many times for me to let it go). Pathetic Microsoft, migrating from Google Keep to this is giving me a headache and makes me feel trapped / less equipped. UPDATE: ONE OF MY LIST'S VANISHED, JUST LIKE THAT.
A reminder option is missing while saving notes directly from lock-screeen...
Colors, reminders don't sync up across devices.
A very good app for notes on-the-go. Plus the lockscreen feature is a great tool. 6 stars out of 5!! Would love a floating widget on the homescreen.
Desperately needs a web app. Keep has one. Simplenote has one.
Was always looking for a cloud based note application. This one is light weight and has minimalistic design yet is very functional
The app of awesome, hand down. It really is. With all the hashtags and listings and backups, it cant get any better
Lock screen widget disappears occasionally, Please fix
FEATURE SUGGESTION: 1. I would love to use little Website Application for Parchi for use on computers or laptops, JS or PHP API would also do.
I like it's awesome features especially lock screen one.... I'm using it instead of Google Keep
Ask your mom whats a parchi and she will reply note. Thanks ms for taking the name from india
Good implementation in an otherwise crowded marketplace. Options provided on the note are good. Keep up good work
Lock Screen icons are not good !
People should really try using this app instead of Keep. It's better with some awesome features.
This app is quite simple to use and useful in several ways.Attractive and easy to use interface makes it more likable. I also feel that there should be one more thing added which is, in addition to the notification reminder there should also be an alarming bell reminder which goes off at a specified time and date, overall its damn good.thanks.
