Development Requirements

Setup Credentials

Simplenote is powered by the Simperium Sync'ing protocol. We distribute testing credentials that help us authenticate your application, and verify that the API calls being made are valid.

In order to create your own Application, please, head over to our website and signup for free.

After you've created your own Simperium application, copy the sample config. For example:

cp Simplenote/config-demo.plist Simplenote/config.plist

Then edit the new config.plist file and change the SPSimperiumAppID and SPSimperiumApiKey fields to the correct values for your new app.

This will allow you to compile and run the app on a device or a simulator.


  1. Clone the repo: git clone
  2. Run pod install from the root directory, and then open Simplenote.xcworkspace file in Xcode.
  3. Sign up for a new account within the app. Use the account for testing purposes only as all note data will be periodically cleared out on the server.

Note: Simplenote API features such as sharing and publishing will not work with development builds.


Follow the same guidelines as WordPress for iOS.

Happy noting!
