App Store Pick: Awesome Note For iOS

By Jaime Rivera August 12, 2010, 7:20 pm

This might sound lame, but one of my personal needs is to have a tool that does a really good job in helping me take notes and segregate these by date. Another is that the content of these notes is searchable because I usually revisit them to build my weekly tasks. Awesome Note is one of those Apps I've stumbled upon that does all these things effectively, and manages to do it in a very fancy and organized way.

Aside from the basics, this is a 4+ rated app that allows you to add images and even map imagery to your notes so you can have an easier time reminding yourself. Obviously a video can allow us to only show so much, so a list of key features include:

  • Insert images into notes

  • Insert a map into notes

  • To-do notes

  • Alarms (Notifications) (iOS 4)

  • Calender view in every folder

  • Full sync with Google Docs and Evernote

  • Transfer notes to Evernote and Google Docs

  • Clickable links (web/email address, phone number) in read-only mode

  • Customize notes and folders (icon, font, theme)

  • Passcode protection for each folder and startup.

  • Thumbnail/List/Todo/Diary view in every folder

  • Email notes directly from the app

  • Full Landscape Support

  • Full Text Search

  • Quick Memo (Text and handwriting)

  • Bluetooth Note Transfer

  • Backup over Wi-Fi

  • Send notes via text message (SMS) (iOS 4)

There's a Lite version of the app you can accesses here if you'd like to try it, and it costs $3.99 for the full version here which I do recommend be in your list of purchases.
