Quotebook — A Notebook for Quotes
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Quotebook is a notebook for your quotes.
Collect the snippets of language that matter most to you and organize them by author, source, rating, and tags. Quotebook makes it insanely simple to share quotes with friends via Email, iMessage, Twitter, Facebook, and more. Automatically sync your quotes on your iPhone and iPad with iCloud.
Like a real notebook, Quotebook doesn't include any quotes, instead it allows you to easily record the quotes that matter to you. Proverbs, lyrics, tweets and clippings from articles you've read — all your favorite quotations are at home in Quotebook.

Nice but needs a few things
DO NOT BUY THIS APP. It has recently become very unstable and will cause all your quotes and rages to duplicate repeatedly, and sometimes to gives the quotes differing attributions. Developers are EXTREMELY slow to respond to emails and after several months have done NOTHING to fix the problem. STAY AWAY! If they ever fix the problems then in will revise my review. My old review to this once-stellar product is below.
My old review:
This is a very nicely done app but it badly needs Dropbox and iDisk/iCloud support for import, export and backup. It also needs iPad support (universal version please!) A Mac version would be nice too, and Windows if you must. Or a web interface. More social media support.
Auto-suggest is also very poor and almost never finds a result.
It would be nice to be able to flip through the quotes without the editing interface and perhaps control the font, size and background image of each quote when viewing that way. Printing or copying or creating an image in your photo library from that would also be nice. Being able to print a quote at various sizes suitable for framing would be nice too.
But except for iPad/universal and Dropbox/iDisk support (which is a MUST these days) all of those are "nice to haves" in a very good app.
What I Was Looking For
I really like this app. I had been looking for an aesthetically-pleasing app for quote storage for some time. I like having all my favorite quotes in one place. This app not only lets me store my quotes but note authors, sources and add tags.
What would I like to see in the future? The possibility of adding subtext or notes, so that I don't obscure the beauty of the text but can add my thoughts below the quote or make a note of the date I found the quote (which may not be the same date I stored it in Quotebook). It would also be great to easily push out the graphically-pleasing quote to Pinterest.
All in all though, great app and exactly what I was looking for.
App works as advertised. Love the auto quote detection. Seamless syncing. I wish it was integrated with Pocket and not just instapaper. The only fault I can find is that the interface on the iPad appears much more polished and pleasing than it does on the iPhone for some reason. It almost seems like two different apps. On the iPhone it seems cluttered and clunky. If I hadn't viewed it on the iPad I might of deleted the app.
