I don’t know how many people in this forum used Vesper, an iOS note-taking app with pleasant synchronisation features, but the app was recently discontinued and its sync server shut down.

Soulmen are offering a small utility for importing Vesper notes into Ulysses, as detailed here: http://ulyssesapp.com/blog/2016/08/vesper-import/

Personally, I always thought Vesper was a little lacking in the features department, given the plethora of very good note-taking apps that are cross-platform and have more powerful features (take Notebooks, for example). That’s particularly true now, following the advent of some serious notebook power to both Mac, iOS and, to a lesser extent, Windows (Scrivener, Ulysses, DEVONthink etc.). Plus, of course, the heavily upgraded and now very capable Apple Notes (shortly to become even more capable, with font sizing and note sharing).

The simpler end of the market was already taken care of by Simplenote, an exceptionally efficient little app.

It was a valiant effort, just - in my view - a misplaced business concept.
