ActionNotes is a beautifully designed Note Pad with a smart, integrated To Do list.

ActionNotes was designed to be as intuitive and as easy to use as possible. Think of it as a your virtual notebook, with covers, dividers and note pages, all of which are much smarter than those in your real notebook…

Note Pages:

Just enter text as you would in any other app and then start taking advantage of ActionNotes' unique features...

Highlighting: Tap in the 1st column on the left to highlight important text. Tap again to toggle it off.

Action Points: Tap in the 2nd column to turn your text into an Action Point (or task) and add it to the list on the right. You can rearrange tasks by dragging them into the order you want and complete them by tapping in the check box.

The inside back cover of your virtual notebook contains a master list of outstanding Action Points. Tap the tasks button on the Divider pages or swipe left on any page to see it. You can filter by section to see all, or any combination of, your outstanding tasks.

Color-coding: Just tap on the labels icon and choose a new color for the note from the pop-up list. Customize your notebook by choosing and assigning colours to each section/tab.

Divider Pages:

Just like a real notebook the Divider pages allow you to organize your notes into color-coded sections. But your smart Dividers also act as an index of all the notes in that section which can be sorted by date or alphabetically. You can rename each section and have the option to display the names on the tabs.


Send great looking emails to yourself (or anybody else). Emails created by ActionNotes are fully editable before you send or when received - useful for amending contents before forwarding on for example. You also have the option to send notes as a PDF as well as, or instead of, the HTML email.

And you can create beautifully formatted email lists of all your outstanding Action Points or just those from any combination of sections, as well as your search results.


Using a free Dropbox account you can backup and restore your notes at any time - useful if you accidentally delete something or want to get your notes onto another iPad.


The Search screen lives on the inside front cover of your virtual notebook - call it up by tapping the Search button on the Divider pages or by swiping any page to the right. The results are color-coded so it's easy to find exactly what you're looking for.

ActionNotes is ideal for taking notes during meetings where you're likely to end up with a list of things to do, or for brainstorming sessions when you just need a way of getting your thoughts down quickly, then highlighting the important ideas and tasks.

Loving this Note's App, so far. Beautifully designed w/template & color customization. Not sure why so many reviewers are having problems but I recently purchased this app and it is working as expected. I updated my iPad first and then downloaded the app. There are so many wonderful features within this app that I won't bother to account here but if you're looking for a note app that allows tabbing & color coding your notes, actions, & task, this is worthy of your consideration. Quite frankly, it's the best Notes app I have been able to find in the AppStore & I've searched numerous applications without satisfaction. So glad to finally find what I was desiring in this type of application. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Love the concept but . . .


I'd been looking long and hard for a decent tabbed interface app for my iPad/iPhone. I thought I found it here but it hasn't been updated since 2014, it doesn't use iCloud for sync/backup, nor does it have an iPhone cousin. As much as I want to continue to use this app I had to follow the developer's lead and abandon it. So sad.
