Notes N More – A very handy note taking and task creating app
I’ve spent days looking for a decent note taking and task creation app. Personally I think the native Notes app is pretty good, but I would like to add tags/categories to notes and would also like to make Tasks/To Do lists while I’m working. Over the weekend I tried a slew of Lite offerings such as NoteMaster, Mental Note, 2DO and SmartNote and not a single one of them appealed to me. They all had something major I didn’t like. I would like to try Awesome Note, but there isn’t a lite version anymore.
However, I did find a $0.99 app that is working quite well for me. Notes N More offers Notes, Tasks, Voice Memos and Pictures. I don’t really need the memo and picture part, but the Note and Task portion works quite well. All your items show up in a list together, with the most recently edited or viewed located at the top.
The Note editor is pretty good, but it looks like you could get another line on the screen when you view it in landscape mode. Hopefully that will change in the future. The editor is standard faire which is perfectly fine.
Tasks are nothing fancy, just a checklist, but that works for me. You don’t set due dates or show progress or partial completion. For that kind of tracking you would need something more powerful like, Simply Lists. However, for a simple checklist with notes associated with them, this works very well.
Notes and tasks can also have tags/categories associated with them. Filter and group your notes for easy viewing. Further, the app is very customizable when it comes to look and feel. You can change the background, not just to a color but to a texture, change the font color and style and change the color theme of the app.
It may not be a OneNote replacement, but for the low price of $0.99 this app does a great job! And it’s a universal app so its formatted for the iPad as well. If you’re looking to write down your ideas and organize a “to do” list then this is definitely worth looking into.
