Just released to the iTunes App Store on Monday, Codex is a notebook app that strives to combine all of the best aspects of Moleskine with the iPad. Codex isn’t affiliated with the notebook giant but has definitely captured what makes them so special. Not just a place to jot down a to do, Codex is also where you can sketch out your art, write notes to yourself and your friends, or just do any of the things you would do in a paper notebook.
We’ll try out this brand new handwriting app and see if it has the features to get you to make the switch from pencil and pad to fingertips and iPad! (more…)
There are handwriting apps and there are handwriting apps. Some of the best we’ve introduced in our series already, but then there is UPAD.
Of course, your personal style of note taking will decide which app will fit you best, but UPAD has such an amazing feature set that it will be hard to find a user that can’t incorporate it into their workflow.
Continuing with our series about handwriting apps, we’re now going to take a look at an app that takes the functionality of the previously reviewed Penultimate even further.
Meet Noteshelf, your digital collection of notebooks of all kinds. Noteshelf has full support for image placement, icon usage, and even zoom, which allows for even greater control of your handwriting.
Read on to transform the way you take notes!
After speaking, what is our most basic and universal tool for communication? It’s writing. We start by using our fingers as kids, then advance to crayons, and (hopefully at some point in our childhood) end up with pens. While the keyboard has become an essential tool for us in the digitized world, many still feel most comfortable when “jotting down” a note with a real pen on real paper, and it’s because that’s how we started out writing in the first place.
With the iPad and its huge capacitive surface, we’ve now been given the chance to mix the best of both worlds: using our deeply ingrained skills of handwriting while still creating a digital, quickly reusable record. One of the Apps that excels in this field is Penultimate, and I’ll take a deeper look at it here in the first in a series about handwriting apps on the iPad.
