iPad Only App - Designed for iPad
It’s hard to accurately describe NoteSuite in a short phrase without bringing out buzz words like “information manager” and “digital organizer.” It can be compared to apps like Evernote, but NoteSuite does so much more, and it leaves you in control of your data and is without the need for a subscription like Evernote. So here we go, I’m going to try.
NoteSuite from Theory.io is digital filing cabinet for all of those bits of digital bits information that we all get and don’t know how to organize. Nope, that stinks. Accurate, but it stinks. NoteSuite is so much more. It’s a task manager, a PDF annotation app, an audio meeting recorder, an outline editor, it recognizes the text in your documents and helps to automatically organize them, capture, annotate, and store web pages. Way too long, how about digital Swiss Army knife? Boom, there we go, the perfect description for NoteSuite.
If you are looking at something to keep your digital bits organized, take a look at NoteSuite. It will do everything you wanted Evernote to do, but without the subscription fees. And it’s on sale now for the amazing price of just $1.99. So why not grab it? For a quick look at the app, take a look at the video below:
I have been a big fan of NoteSuite since the first version. This one cleans up just about every issue I had with the original. And a big plus, also now available is a Mac OSX version that offers iCloud syncing of your data.
The one outstanding issue for me is the lack of an iPhone version, but we’ve been assured that it is being worked on yet no release date is known yet.
IK Multimedia already offers a plethora of great products for iOS device-owning musicians. Now, the firm has extended that selection with the introduction of five new accessories as part of the iKlip range.
In each case, the new iKlip models provide ways in which to mount and position the iPad or iPad mini, thereby enabling users to operate devices hands-free as well as set up the perfect viewing angle towards a microphone stand, tabletop or anything else of use in the studio. It’s the kind of solution that’s ideal for presentations as well as music studio work, or just around the home.
The iKlip 2 offers such a solution for iPad users, enabling them to attach any type of iPad (from the 2nd generation and later) to a microphone stand securely, as well as be able to adjust the device to just the right viewing angle. For iPad mini users, there’s the iKlip 2 for iPad mini, offering the same potential.
Tabletop stands are also available in separate iPad and iPad Mini versions, with the iKlip Stand making things much simpler. It’s the ideal stand for connecting the iPad above the desktop so that it’s easy to position equipment, such as a musical keyboard or mixer underneath, but it can also be used in the home. Too small an office desk to fit all the devices easily? Use the iKlip Stand to solve such a problem and revel in the extra space!
The iKlip Studio offers a similar solution but is specifically designed for use on flat surfaces, and aimed at those apps that require “energetic tapping and beat making”, tying in nicely with the many DJ based apps already out there. Non-slip rubber grip feet, as well as adjustable viewing angles keep the iPad safe and secure, plus it folds flat, lending itself perfectly to easy storage.
The iKlip 2 for iPad and iKlip 2 for iPad mini will be priced at $39.99 or €29.99 excluding tax, while the iKlip Stand for iPad and iKlip Stand for iPad mini will be $59.99/€49.99. The iKlip Studio for iPad mini is priced at $29.99/€24.99.
We’re big fans of IK Multimedia’s accessories and I suspect these new iKlips will be quite the hit when they ship during the first quarter of 2013.
