Vesper was a notes app released back in 2013 thats main claim to fame was the fact the development team included Apple pundit John Gruber and app developer Brent Simmons. While it didn’t offer anything new, it was a solid notes app a lot of people loved. The app’s being shut down, and with that announcement comes a new export feature.

Like most notes apps, Vesper had a syncing function so you could sync you notes across devices. That syncing service will shut down on August 30 and all data will be destroyed. The app itself will be removed from the App Store on September 15. If you’ve already downloaded the app, you can technically continue to use it, though it will not sync and there’s no guarantee it’ll work on future versions of iOS.

Thankfully, the Vesper app was just updated with a new export function that dumps all your notes as TXT files:

  1. Tap the arrow in the top left of the app.
  2. Select Export.
  3. Tap “Export Notes and Pictures.”
  4. Pick where you want to send your notes to (iCloud Drive, Dropbox, or Google Drive).

Each note is exported as a separate TXT file and each image is exported as a JPG. It’s not the most ideal option, but at least it’ll be easy enough to send your data to your new notes app of choice.
