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

Fantastic for notes, good for tasks

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.)

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.

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!

Simple. Effective. Free!

UpWord is a simple note-taking application that is much more robust than the standard Apple Notes app. The app offers the ability to organize notes, rearrange them, and create separate folders for them. A checklist function makes staying on top of your workload a breeze. You're also given the ability to one-touch rearrange lines in your list, making reprioritizing more convenient. Aside from all of this, the developers support and stand by their app; they respond back to your inquiries and reports, and they actually fix problems and improve on their work. It's well worth supporting them by buying the premium version, as even crucial things like Dropbox backups are free! A real must-have app for students, employees, or anyone who needs to get their thoughts or notes down for future reference.

Is this it?

My search appears to be over! I have been searching for an app that lets me store a list of accomplishments like the old note pad. Something simple with near enough font that I can write one line for each accomplishment and see my most important achievements over the past five to seven years! And it lets me move thong around and edit easily. I like it so much that I am also using it to write daily goals and too keep track of which episodes of my favorite show J have seen and which ones I have missed. Super cool is the swipe one way to cross off / swipe the other way to highlight. Does it store pictures yet? Maybe that will be in a future release??
