Have somewhat bad news. It appears that Simplenote just isn’t an option. It appears that they will not authorize API access to anyone who is doing an open source project. This isn’t the only one that has been denied.
That said, it appears that I will have to rethink things. What I may do, is break things down to text files, so that they can be easily synced anywhere, be it dropbox, google drive, or anywhere. That said, I’ll come up with something.
This may be ultimately a good thing. Let’s see how things go.
