Customer Reviews

Great, but it’s very basic.

It is a simple and basic notes / to-do list app. There is def. room for improvement.

Would be great if we can customize it further (choose more fonts than the 5 options we have). For note taking, it would be great if we can indent or make lists within a list. It would also be nice if we could view our notes in list form rather than see the thumbnails.

Ps… I think you can also come up with a nicer looking app icon ;)

Fantastic Note Taking App

By far, this is one of the best note taking apps I have ever used. It is super user friendly, and also makes things super easy to both organize and find notes. Also being able to integrate photos and voice recordings into my notes is very helpful. Everything is very streamlined. All in all, I highly reccomend this app.

So far this looks like a great note taking app!

I find that this app has the features needed to keep track of lists, photos, journaling, or even voice recording. All the aspects for making notes easy to manipulate, create and enjoy are part of this software. Looks like a useful app that I will continue to use.
