You’d think the iPad had seen its fair share of note-taking applications, but you’d be wrong entirely. Last month, NoteSuite came along — and it really impressed me. I gave it a commendable 9 out of 10 in our review from last month for its uncluttered interface, impressive feature set and ease of use. The developers of NoteSuite have certainly learnt from the problems that plagued Projectbook, the app’s predecessor and it is, in my opinion, one of the best iPad note-taking applications out there.
And now, thanks to the kindness of the developers, we’ve got 10, yes 10, promotional codes (each one worth $4.99) which we’re giving away to our readers!
Write is currently one of our favourite note-taking apps for the iPad owing to its beautiful interface and its massive range of features. Not only will it allow you to write in Markdown — saving you absolutely loads of time in the long run — but it also features an intuitive pull-to-save and pull-to-delete function and all your files are uploaded to Dropbox straight away, so you can use them on whatever device you’re using.
A week ago, Nathan Snelgrove looked at Zephyr, a slick and feature-packed ADN client for both the iPad and iPhone. The app got a solid 8 out of 10 rating and he concluded by stating, “…it holds a lot of potential, and if the developer is working on it, we’re looking at an ADN client that could be the go-to in six months’ time. As it stands, the most feature-packed options are Netbot (which is still too similar to Tweetbot for my own liking) or Felix (which is only for iPhone)”.
A few weeks back, Paula DuPont took a good look at Codex – a new approach to notetaking on the iPad. The app, according to the developers, is designed to replace your trusty Moleskine (it costs about the same as a standard notebook) and there’s plenty of flexibility and notetaking tools within, allowing you to add colour, diagrams and text to your notes.
Last week, Phillip Johns looked at Mail Pilot, an alternative e-mail client for your iPad. Judging by the results of our weekly poll, out of a total of 340 votes, 249 of you (nearly three-quarters) thought that the iPad deserved something different to Mail.app, and Mail Pilot for some may be the answer.
Instead of focusing on working through your e-mails as and when you receive them, Mail Pilot lets you put off e-mails and will remind you later on to take a look at them. This approach has also been taken by Mailbox – for the time being it only supports the iPhone and Gmail accounts — but Mail Pilot features a few nifty features up its sleeve that can help you reach that beautiful feeling of “inbox zero” in no time at all.
This Monday, Pedro Lobo looked at Actions, an absolutely fantastic automation app for your iPad. You can control virtually everything about your Mac or Windows computer (separate versions are available) right from your tablet and you can also create some pretty nifty shortcuts that will not only save you time but also make you a lot more productive in whatever you do.
