A few weeks back, Second Gear updated their note taking app Elements to version 2.0. This added a completely redesigned UI and lots of new sharing support. The app functions as a Markdown editor in the cloud with full Dropbox sync support. It has a bunch of other basic features including printing, TextExpander, sharing to the web or publishing on Tumblr or Facebook, word counting, and the ability to export as HTML or PDF.
Elements is a fully universal iOS app, so you can use it with your iPhone and iPad seamlessly for the price of one app. It’s also very helpful to have when you write a note down at work and then want to find it once your phone has died. Read on to discover more about the potential of Elements 2.0…
If you’re considering getting an iPad, or have been looking for amazing and unique apps for an iPad you already own, chances are you’ve heard of The Elements. This app has been featured in Apple’s demos in addition to earning constant reviews ever since the iPad was released. Most of us struggled to remember the periodic table when in high school chemistry, so why would you want to get a new version of it for your shiny new gadget?
The Elements is an interactive eBook written by Theodare Gray, an author you may know from the Popular Science column “Gray Matter.” He and his team have photographed samples of each element they could and produced a coffee table book filled with high quality imagery and descriptions of each one.
They then redesigned the book for the iPad, bringing the periodic table into the 21st century. Most eBooks are simply a digital copy of the same text you could have bought in dead tree format, so is The Elements any different?
