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!

Customer Reviews

Great App but was disappointed

This app is really a good app and I like the features, I have tried many similar apps and this one is a favorite. When I first installed it I noticed it has a premium upgrade for $3.99 which I did not do since I always like to try the app first. After only five days my trial subscription ended. I thought that was rather unusual since I don't remember reading about a five day trial, maybe I missed it. What really disappointed me is the change in the premium upgrade went from $3.99 to $7.99, sell for less before the trial and then almost double the price after the five day. I don't rent getting any notice of an increase in price. What's really disappointing is I was going to upgrade but now I feel it was misleading so will keep looking. Too bad since I like the app. Would have gotten 5 stars!

This is the reminder app that the iPhone should have

I absolutely love this app. It does and has everything I would want a note taker or a writing app to have. I can:

1. change the font,
2. add a variety of different bullets,
3. bold the font,
4. change the 'to do' to red to indicate it’s a priority item and then cross it off when completed.

To delete an items that’s been crossed off as completed, you just pull the screen down or click delete.

In additional they have an experimental section for things they are trying out. You can check out the possible new features and tell them what you think about adding it to the next version. Have you ever had to space over to indent a paragraph, not with this app. It’s part of the experimental group and I hope becomes a permanent feature.

You can add an alarm, count the number of words and too many other things to mention. Best of all, it’s functional just as is. And if you want to update, the price isn’t too much. Try it out, I don’t think you’ll be sorry.

Fantastic for notes, good for tasks

My go-to notes app. Being able to set alarms on notes still has this out in front of the built-in notes app.

Fast notes, Dropbox sync, and great extras like two-finger swipe to insert tab, search across notes (title and text), in-text search (highlights terms), swipes for formatting/completing list items (@done is great!), and drag-and-drop text for reordering tasks. Just about the perfect notes app for me; has long since replaced built-in Notes.

Be sure to check out the experimental features in advanced settings – reverse swipe is here! (Ability to reverse swipe directions so swiping to complete matches typical iOS delete swipe direction – R to L.)

Would love to see more new features like collapsible text (a la Listacular or Cotton Notes), skipping to a certain heading in the text (a la TaskPaper), and "find next" when searching in text (although the highlighting is great, I like being able to jump to the next result). Excellent app...keep up the great work!
