My experience of using the v9 Notes widget (up to and including 9.0.143) is that its performance is terrible. Consequently it feels really bad to use.

The most egregious aspect of which is that, when typing, it can barely keep up and it even misses the odd character, which in 2016 is pretty much unforgivable.

No other text editing app/widget that I use comes remotely close to this kind of performance. Word, to pick a relevant example, which is doing considerably more work & on long documents, performs fine.

I really hope you are able to improve this.

Kind regards,
