Notes N More – A Review

In this third, and more than likely final, article about note taking apps, I wanted to revisit Notes N More which I bought several months ago and think is a very good app, especially for the iPad.

Notes N More is a universal app, which we don’t see enough of, and has some excellent features when used on the iPad. It uses the space to make a simple but effective layout. You get a sidebar to the left where you can see your categories, jump to one of your recent notes, create a task or use the calendar to jump to notes you took on a specific day. And to the right is the main window where you can see your notes associated with the category you selected.

Unlike a lot of note taking apps, Notes N More allows you to create a folder or rather a main category and assign that category to your notes so you can group everything together. This is great for jotting down quick notes for Project A and keeping those separate from Project B. It’s not fancy, but very effective.

The editor for Notes N More is simple but effective as well. Something I wish it did offer was the ability to turn off the sidebar so you could use the entire screen while typing. That is personal preference and doesn’t detract from the apps usefulness. And who knows, we might see that as a future update.

In conjunction with notes you can create tasks for yourself. They are simple notes that you can mark as done. Don’t expect much, but you can make a simple list for yourself if you need to.

Another interesting feature is Sketch. You can use your finger to draw on an image or simply sketch what you want. Not a bad feature for drawing out an idea or copying something from the board. I don’t use this feature too much since drawing with my finger usually doesn’t end well for me. But for those that can make it work, it could be pretty neat.

You can also create a voice memo, but I have never had a need to use that function. Talking into the iPad would be an amusing sight though.

The Search function is also very good in that it searches the content of the note not just the title. As strange as it seems, a lot of search functions don’t seem to be that involved.

Finally, Notes N More offers a lot of visual configuration options. You can change the font, change the text color and change the background color. This should give you plenty of choices to suit your personal tastes and is actually a lot more customization than many other apps give.

Notes N More is a very scaled down note taking app and as such it has several features I would like. While you can email a note to yourself there aren’t too many other export options. You can use a desktop sync tool the author has written, but that will only get your notes to a single desktop. There is no Dropbox integration either. Unfortunately there is no import option, you will need to copy and paste notes. These days that can be a pretty serious hindrance.

Notes N More has some limitations, but at $0.99 it’s an excellent replacement for the Notes app that comes with the iPhone and iPad. It’s extremely effective for writing down ideas and keeping those notes organized. It is still a nice app and on the iPad its layout and category function makes note taking very easy. Seriously, you can’t beat the $0.99 price tag.
