User Say

Michael Coates

"Major panic this morning, I delete an important note when I first woke up so I went into the recently deleted section to move it back and accidentally tapped the permanently delete icon - I just didn't realise what I was doing. Lots of very important information gone - whoops! Couldn't find much mention of backups for deleted notes anywhere until I found this program. Hooked up my iPhone to my Mac, ran the scan from the iPhone directly and amazingly, the old note was there and I could simply copy and paste the information I needed back into notes. For this app to allow such access so I could save my work is brilliant - I'll be keeping hold of this program now and should I ever need to go more in depth I wouldn't hesitate in buying it. Thanks! "
