Notes Kept Simple

Your iPhone or iPod already replaces so many things you used to have to carry around. Let it replace one more. TrustyBook is a simple and customizable notebook app that lets you jot down notes with ease and style. And it's free!

This free version of TrustyBook offers all the features of the paid version. It is ad-supported and an in-app purchase allows you to disable advertisements.

Managing Your Notes

— Name your notes anything you like. — TrustyBook lets you name your notes. So instead of the first line of your note being the name of the note, you can decide for yourself.

— Drag-and-Drop management with no extra setup, software, cloud, or accounts. — Your notes are accessible through iTunes file sharing. In iTunes, in the “Apps” tab of your phone configuration, your notes just sit there waiting for you to drag them wherever you like on your computer. Notes are plain and simple text files. You can also drag plain text files into TrustyBook through the exact same interface. No extra software, no setup

— Organize With Folders — TrustyBook lets you create folders to help you organize and manage your notes.

— Full Text Search — Find notes by searching their content.

Make it Yours

— Pick your font, and let TrustyBook cater to your own thoughts on readability

— Pick your font size. Have bad eyes? Use a bigger font. Have hawk-like eyes over short distances and a fancy sharp iPhone 4 screen? Use a tiny font and make the most of your screen real-estate. I didn’t pick for you because I don’t even know what’s best for me.

— Customizable colors — It’s not just for fun. Customize text color, background color, and NavBar color. Use contrasting colors for better visibility, or use low contrast to be easier on the eyes.

Looks Promising

I've had the app on my iPad2 for a while, but just now started using it. I hope to copy notes, articles, and documents from my iPad notepad to Trustybook, due to being able have choices over fonts, type size, and other semi-creative writing tools. I like the fact that I can create numerous notebooks/folders for different subjects, and I'm hoping I can add numerous notes, reports, and/or articles to each of these folders, and these individual additions present as stand-alone entries, rather than one long run-on entry, as in notepad. If this is the case, my laptop may be up for retirement, as long as I have the ability to print from Trustybook, as well. That's another function I have yet to check. If it all works out, I will definitely purchase the paid version, and do away with the ads altogether. Thank you for developing and sharing such a simple, yet functional app!
