Editors’ Notes

There’s more than one way to take a note, and Whink embraces them all in a gorgeous, welcoming manner that makes jotting down thoughts practically like creating art—just a whole lot quicker and easier. Whether you prefer to scribble with your fingertip, type text, or add your own dulcet tones through recorded audio, Whink is as much a creative tool as it is a way of putting your ideas down on digital paper.

Whink- 'Must Have' App For School!


Whink is the most refreshing download in the recent times for me! I have literally scratched the surface of all the note-taking apps available for the iPad and came to the conclusion that this is the coolest new-age note taking app that also has a very easy and intuitive user interface. This is the single most important tool i carry to my school. To put it simply, it excels at all the necessary tasks that are expected from a note taking app and best of all is that at the end of the day, i can be rest assured that all my notes are safely backed up to the iCloud !!! What more could i ask for?! I highly recommend it. Go for it! Update 11/10 : The issue with the app freezing is completely fixed now! Thanks for your immediate attention!

Terrible for school


I am in grad school and want an alternative to OneNote for taking class notes. I thought this was going to be the perfect app, but I was so very wrong. First, this doesn’t let me arrange the notes in the order I want. I only have 3 options: date created, date modified, name. None of those work for me. Second, grouping notes is tedious and time consuming. With the number of slide sets I have to import for each class, it will take way too much time for me to keep them organized. I want an app that saves me time! Finally, the app will not let me take notes outside of the slide space (I cannot scroll to the right, for example, to add info). This gives me way too little space in which to take notes for a slide. I’m sorry I ever purchased this app and wish I could get my $5 back.
