It's how notes on iOS should work. A unique swipe-gesture manages task lists and adds formatting in a snap. One-tap reminders ensure that you revisit a note later. Folders & favorites keep you organized, while Dropbox syncs notes between devices.

Once you see how productive your everyday notes can be, you'll wonder how you lived without UpWord!

UpWord: an upgrade from Apple's Note app!

UpWord is a no-frills approach to note-taking and list-making yet offers so much within its simple, clean interface. I'm finding ever more uses for it and it's completely replaced Apple's Note app in my digital life.

Since it supports nested folders, I even use this app in place of any stand-alone recipe app, sorting my recipes into folders: appetizers, beverages, breads, etc. and even color-coding them—color is a useful feature within the app. Having trouble remembering where you filed a note or list? Search for it by name by "dragging downward" on any screen and typing what you're looking for.

The app also supports web links and email addresses and one can export notes with ease to just about anywhere (including to Evernote!). And it syncs across all my devices. I love this app! [Read above for a complete description of all its features.] Get it and then "Go Premium." It's easily worth the $4.99.

What's the problem with Dropbox?

I got this email:

Hi *****,

On September 28, 2017, we’ll be making some changes to Dropbox that will likely affect the following 3rd party apps linked to your Dropbox account: Upword Notes. You’re receiving this email because you’ve used these apps at least once within the past month.

While we’ve informed all developers about our upcoming changes, the developers for the apps listed above have yet to update their apps accordingly. If they don’t update their apps before September 28, these apps will no longer be able to access Dropbox. That said, any data already saved in Dropbox won’t be affected and will still be accessible from our official web, mobile, and desktop clients.

As a recent user of these apps, we recommend you take the following actions:
Review how you use these apps, especially if you use them to access Dropbox
If you rely on these apps to store data in Dropbox, we suggest exporting or backing up any data from these apps before the September 28 deadline.
We understand changes like these can be inconvenient. We hope that the recommendations above help you plan accordingly. If you have any questions about these apps, please contact the apps through their support channels.

Love, love, LOVE this app!!

As a list-maker, I've always had papers, notes, lists, etc, all over the place. This eliminates all of that and keeps everything right at my fingertips. I paid for the full version but consider it money well spent. The ability to have categories & lists is most helpful. It's super easy to move things, copy & paste, reorganize, etc. and I say that after trying to use OneNote which I gave up on after two days. I would (and already have) highly recommend this app to anyone who has information they like to keep organized. It's great for "to do" lists, shopping lists, future gift ideas, medical information... the uses are endless. It has quickly become one of the best apps on my phone. I consider this a must have!!
