It might not have the most memorable of names, and it might lack syncing and backup support, but what Whitespace does offer is plenty of flexibility for those who need to collate notes, lists, or just random thoughts at any time throughout the day. It's a fairly promising app for those who like to write.

The idea is that users can basically write and organize however they want. Starting out with an uncategorised 'space', users can opt to create their own, thereby dividing up content how they wish. For instance, it's possible to create spaces devoted to personal thoughts, then place them next to a space consisting of one's To-Do list or grocery list. For those such as myself, whose minds easily leap from subject to subject, it's a convenient place to delve into.

Whitespace continues such flexibility with its various options. It's as easy to search the app as it is to browse, with it being possible to view all notes together as well as separated. It's possible to attach photographs to certain notes for reference, as well as view a word count and send the note elsewhere via email. Various formatting options for the text are also available, alongside a convenient virtual cursor for moving around large amounts of text.

It's all simply but effectively done, although notably the lack of being able to back content up to iCloud or DropBox is a potential issue. For that reason alone I wouldn't suggest storing anything vital within Whitespace; at least not without emailing it elsewhere.

Whitespace brushes across the flexibility that Evernote already offers, but I've found the interface more comfortable this time around. While it's no replacement for such apps, for those looking for a simpler solution to Evernote this is certainly going down the right kind of path for taming one's thought patterns.
