An update to the Evernote app has arrived alongside the release of iOS 8, with clipping, quick notes, and new notifications headlining the new features.

Users will now be able to use the web clipping feature to simply save any webpage that they’re on, straight from the Share icon. This feature isn’t limited to webpages however, as it also works with photos, documents, PDFs, and other parts of iOS 8. Meanwhile, by swiping down from the top of the screen and going to the notification center, users can add a quick note bar for Evernote, allowing them to start a new note straight from there.

The app also contains a couple of new features for premium users. For these users, the app now attempts to find notes related to what you’re currently working on and can be locked and unlocked using Touch ID on devices that support it.

The Evernote app is available to download from the App Store for free now.

Box Update Adds Box Notes, Usability Improvements, and More

Posted by on June 25th, 2014

Box, the cross-platform cloud storage solution tool, has received an update that brings the Box Notes feature to iOS devices. The feature allows for collaboration and even concurrent editing.

From the blogpost:

At its core, Box Notes is about making it easy to work with others. It promotes the sharing of information and collaboration. Live, concurrent editing lets everyone read and make changes instantly together. This is great for meetings – even when some participants aren’t in the office. And with today’s global workforce, not everyone is online and working at the same time – Box Notes is great for those situations too. Notes are automatically available to collaborators of the folder, so there’s no need to share each individual note with the people who need it.

The update also has usability fixes and improved compatibility with iWork files. Box is available for free on the App Store.

Notability has received an update, adding in some usability improvements and more.

You can find specific details below, but the biggest changes include being able to link typing, drawing, photos, and handwriting to your recorded audio clips, as well as improved navigation tools that make scrolling through text and audio a lot easier.

We had an opportunity to review the app a while back; Notability is available (on sale currently) $2.99.

Everything that you add is now linked to your audio recording — just tap play and watch your handwriting, typing, drawings, and photos come to life. This visually rich presentation of your note provides an awesome new way to review your notes or even to create lessons or instructional notes for students or colleagues.

The new navigation tool provides an easy and powerful way to review your notes. Scroll through your notes while preventing stray marks. Or follow along with your audio and tap anywhere to jump to a specific point in your recording.

Audio recordings can also be played back at several different speeds to help you speed up review. You can also quickly rewind 10 seconds to hear an important part of the recording again.

Also, you can now select a typed word and view a definition.

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.

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.
