How to Configure

  • Clone repository.
git clone
cd simplenote-android
  • Import into Android Studio using the Gradle build option. You may need to create a file with the absolute path to the Android SDK. Sample
  • Install debug build with Android Studio or command line with:
./gradlew installDebug
  • Create a new account in order to use a development build. Signing in with an existing Simplenote account won't work. 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.

Android Wear

To properly install the wear app, run ./gradlew assembleRelease to package up the app and then adb install with the generated .apk to the host device.

If you want to debug the Wear app, simply connect the device to adb and then run the Wear project from Android Studio.
