As a blogger/writer for the best darn site in the world (I may be biased), I often find myself writing things on electronic devices. However, if I need to start writing something on one device, and then finish it on another, I'm out of luck. I often just start off writing drafts of my reviews and articles in a plain-text editor on my netbook, as I will usually end up putting the finishing touches when I submit from there. However, I'd like to use my iPad for writing more - I can set up a screen, plug in a USB keyboard, and be free of distractions, thanks to iOS being more of a single-focus OS than my Windows computer, where I have more windows open than I know what to do with. I could just use the Notes app in iOS, which syncs up to my email accounts, but accessing them from my computer is clunky, so I rarely ever do it. What I want is a nice plain-text editor that would sync up to Dropbox, so I could type out notes on my iPad, or even my iPod touch, save them as TXT files, and access them from wherever I have Dropbox access. Notesy does just that.

Notesy succeeds in being a simple plaintext editor with Dropbox syncing. You can easily type up paragraphs upon paragraphs of plain text into the app, and it gets saved to your indicated Notesy folder. Files are saved in the format of .txt, although you can change the file extension if you want. There are a variety of advanced options for users who need them, including an option to view your file in a fixed width font. Your files aren't just limited to Notesy - you can email them or print them via AirPrint. The app is universal, so you can load up your notes on your iPad as well as your iPhone/iPod touch, if you want to edit or start one of your notes on the smaller screen, and then finish it up on the bigger screen, or if you want to write something while on the go. The apps support both portrait and landscape orientation on both sized devices, and the iPhone/iPod touch version sports Retina Display support. What is most helpful for a writer like me is the word count tool, so you can keep up with how many words are in your text at any time with a tap of the "i" in the toolbar. </p><p><p class="center"><img src="http://images.148apps.com/2011/4/39400/72587/photo-apr-15-1-46-38-am-300x225.png" alt=""></p>The problem with Notesy is that it is largely limited to your Notesy notes. While you could sync up a folder full of other notes, it would take a very long time to download them, so it's best not to use this as an app to access all your text files - just to manage ones you write with the app specifically. If you're going to share documents between platforms, you'll need to make sure you hit the "Done" button to ensure that your file gets saved, although the files do automatically sync every 2 minutes. Just be careful if you rapidly jump between platforms. As well, $2.99 may be a high price to pay for a simple text editor that just happens to sync with Dropbox. If you need more advanced features like different file formats, you may want to look elsewhere. And of course, if you don't have Dropbox (and I recommend getting one - it is incredibly handy, its iOS app is fantastic, and more apps are starting to integrate Dropbox support), then this app is worthless to you, as Dropbox is the only cloud drive synchronization service offered. </p><p>Notesy is a very simple app that does well what it sets out to do - provide a notes application that syncs with Dropbox. As a regular Dropbox user, and someone who would like to work on my writing across whatever platform is most convenient, this is a tremendously useful app, and one that I will be using time and time again. I even typed this review up in Notesy - how's that for a ringing endorsement? </p><p></p></div> <div class="screens"> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-1-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-1-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 1" class="p"></a> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-2-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-2-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 2" class="p"></a> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-3-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-3-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 3" class="p"></a> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-4-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-4-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 4" class="p"></a> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-5-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-iphone-5-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 5" class="p"></a> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-1-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-1-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 6" class="h"></a> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-2-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-2-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 7" class="h"></a> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-3-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-3-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 8" class="h"></a> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-4-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-4-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 9" class="h"></a> <a href="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-5-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg"><img src="http://media.148apps.com/screenshots/386095500/us-ipad-5-notesy-for-dropbox.jpeg" alt="Notesy for Dropbox screenshot 10" class="h"></a> <br class="clearfloat"> </div> <div class="catsntags"> <div>Posted in: <a href="/category/reviews/ipad-apps/">iPad Apps and Games</a>, <a href="/category/reviews/ipad-apps/ipad-productivity/">iPad Productivity</a>, <a href="/category/reviews/iphone-apps/">iPhone Apps and Games</a>, <a href="/category/reviews/iphone-apps/productivity/">Productivity</a>, <a href="/category/reviews/">Reviews</a></div> <div>Tagged With: <a href="/tag/productivity/">Productivity</a>, <a href="/tag/2-99/">$2.99</a>, <a href="/tag/notesy/">Notesy</a>, <a href="/tag/notesy-for-dropbox/">Notesy for dropbox</a>, <a href="/tag/david-findlay/">David Findlay</a></div> </div> <div class="shareline"> <div class="lead"><strong>Share This:</strong></div> <div><a href="http://twitter.com/share" class="twitter-share-button" data-count="horizontal" data-via="148Apps" data-url="http://www.148apps.com/reviews/notesy-dropbox-review/">Tweet</a> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"></script></div> <div><iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.148apps.com%2Freviews%2Fnotesy-dropbox-review%2F&layout=button_count&show_faces=false&width=90&action=like&font=trebuchet+ms&colorscheme=light" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" style="border:none;
