Popular note-collecting app Evernote may now have a little competition from newly released Clipbox. Clipbox, currently on a new-release sale of $0.99, collects various clips of text and audio for users and saves those clips in iCloud.
Information synced to Clipbox is also available in a browser; so Clipbox clips are accessible anywhere the internet is available. Like Evernote, clips can be tagged for easy discovery later. Clipboard text and photos can be brought into the app with one easy tap. And boxes can be created to hold clips that use the user’s own search terms for organization. Users can even create a passcode to keep unwanted users out of their information.
The app has a clean and easy-to-use interface with retina display graphics for both the iPhone and iPad retina displays. haha Interactive, the developer, has made it clear that feedback from their customers will influence how they update their app in the future.
Originally designed for the iPhone, Appigo’s Notebook app has gone through a major update and is now a universal app designed to play nicely with the iPad as well. The productivity app is well known for offering a simple user interface and solid feature set to create, share and edit notes. The new 2.0 version is now optimized for Dropbox syncing, which allows the user to share notes on all iOS devices as well as Mac and PC platforms. In addition to sharing between the user’s devices, this new support makes sharing with friends, family or colleagues even easier.
The update plays off the company’s thought that adding a powerful collaboration tool was necessary for its users. The new version adds a familiar notebook interface with full-screen editing capabilities and overall the update seems to be a cost effective productivity tool for users with multiple iOS devices. The notes are saved in standard text format and is compatible with PC and Mac text editing applications. Notebook is available on the iTunes App Store for $4.99.
Another week means another note making productivity app. Fortunately Notes n Tasks is an attractive yet never overcomplicated app that does exactly what anyone could need of it.
The app adapts to every need, whether it be for a specific project or simply the grocery list for the week. Users can enter information easily as well as supplement such notes with due dates or a label to mark it as important. Organizational tools are available with the ability to create groups and then assign notes to their respective category. Everything is appealing and easy to get to grips with.
It means that Notes n Tasks is an ideal iPad app for keeping track of everything that needs doing in an ever busy world. It’s inexpensive at $1.99 with future updates promising iPhone compatibility, push reminders, location revelant information and cloud synchronization via Dropbox and iCloud. Surely the ideal time to hop on the Notes n Tasks train?
How the humble note passing system has changed with recent technology. Instead of having to physically pass hand written notes around, students can use Klassmating instead, a new app that focuses on that exact purpose.
It’s a little more mature than that, though, offering a more useful type of note passing. Ever wanted to discuss something about a class anonymously? This is the kind of thing that Klassmating enables. Users can discuss things via a message board for each class while still maintaining a certain level of anonymity.
This anonymity won’t be a potential problem, however, as Klassmating only supports certain universities at the moment due to its need for an .edu email address to sign up. Harvard, Stanford, Yale, MIT and UC Berkeley are the establishments covered for now with more set to be added.
Klassmating is certainly a different way of communicating! Why not give it a shot today? It’s free.
Being able to protect data is an increasingly important issue for iOS device owners. With a device that encourages its users to store photos, contact details and other useful notes, it’s just as important to be able to hide them away from unwanted eyes. While a passcode will protect the device on the whole, it’s useful to have an extra layer of protection. Something that MyLocker from Inspike can provide.
It’s an app that works much like a safe, requiring three number combinations to unlock the information within it. Users can store various contact details behind this lock, as well as photos and notes such as credit card information or anything else that’s considered important to the user.
MyLocker is a simple app to get to grips with and only takes a matter of seconds to set up. Multiple users can also be set up for devices used by more than one person. It’s just as easy to log into as well to retrieve the information.
MyLocker is a free app, although an in-app purchase of $0.99 is needed in order to be able to store photos behind the virtual safe.
It’s available now for all iOS devices.
Recording audio is great, except when you play it back and realize, with some frustration, that you can’t see what’s being talked about—whether it’s a reference to diagrams on a blackboard, a lecture slide, or even a person. As for video, well, it requires a lot more storage space, as well as a steady hand.
Eidetiq aims to combine the best of both worlds with their new iPhone app. The name “Eidetiq” is a play on the real term, “eidetic memory,” or what pop culture calls a photographic memory. Loosely termed a “note-taking” application, Eidetiq allows you to record audio as well as snapping pictures. Turn the app on, and then take pictures when necessary. The app then plays back the recording with the pictures synchronized in time to the audio. A free piece of desktop software allows you to sync those recordings to your Windows or Mac machine as well.
The developers have plenty of suggestions for how to use Eidetiq. These range from the standard lecture recording—record audio, plus pictures of relevant diagrams or problems—to medical applications, such as a doctor recording a patient’s description of their symptoms along with photos of the injury. Despite its “note-taker” moniker, the developers intend for Eidetiq to be much more.
“Never ask again – what did the teacher just say?” said Jason Novak, CEO, Chubby Weasel Technologies…”The app allows you to focus on what you’re listening to in the moment, and then go back and document the highlights.”
Eidetiq is now available on the App Store for $4.99.
We enjoyed Moe’s Notes for iPhone which offers some unique features for taking rich multimedia notes that include audio, video, images and GPS coordinates and it’s now available for iPad.
Moe’s Notepad makes the most of the iPad’s larger screen by using splitter bars to show different sections of the app that used to be spread across multiple screens. The updated UI allows users to customize the app’s display as they wish while retaining the same functionality.
Without a camera in the iPad (although the team behind Moe’s Notes believe one is coming) images are taken from the iPad’s Photo’s App with a number of editing options available within the app itself. Audio editing is also impressive with recording and trimming of audio as well as volume and speed settings available.
All media can be combined into an email and sent as attachments with more streamlined options coming in a future update that could include popular formats such as Evernote or GoogleDocs among others.
Users of Moe’s Notes for iPhone should certainly invest in this iPad reworking and those that need a decent note taking tool will be hard pressed to find a more feature-packed alternative.
Moe’s Notes is available now for $9.99
