Note Anytime: Written iPhone App Review
Over the years, we have used more than an handful of note taking and note producing applications for the iPhone and iPad. In fact, we sometimes think that we’ve just about salvaged the lot of what’s available. Still, this doesn’t mean we can’t still be surprised, as Note Anytime by developer MetaMoji Corporation aptly proves to us. The app is one of the most full-featured and richly decorated note taking and sketching apps available for download to-date. If you’re in need of a new one to play with, we can hardly recommend another over it. Want to know why? Read our full review below beyond the break!
Concept and Functionality
Like most note taking applications for the iPhone and iPad of note—yes, pun intended—Note Anytime makes a point to bring you as many features and possibilities to work with as it possibly can. To begin with, it of course gives you the freedom to annotate just about anything it can load: Which includes documents, photos, premade graphs and graphics. Scribble away as you wish, and when you’re done, go ahead and throw a text box or two right over the whole production. You will, of course, also have your choice of pen colors and widths, allowing you to fashion together whole illustrations and diagrams in a matter of seconds.
Want more? Note Anytime is happy to provide! Easily add snap graphics and scale them with the super simple pinch-to-zoom interface. Once everything is exactly as you like it, you can easily export the production from within the app to all of your favorite social media sites and services. In other words, Note Anywhere is the ideal work companion, and a simple way to boost your workflow productivity.
Design and Interface
However, what sets Note Anytime apart is not its functionality: There are many other apps on the App Store that will perform similar functions. Instead, it is the app’s killer interface. It’s got the touch-heavy controls we want, as well as the touch-based corrections like a wrist pad that we need. Added onto this is a floating toolbar that can be dragged anywhere around the document and tapped to reveal its goodies. This theme plays out with all of the app’s features, which smartly remain hidden until needed, saving you space and energy moving about.
Currently, Note Anytime is free, though it won’t stay like this forever. In other words, no matter what note production utility you’re using now, you owe it to yourself to snag this one while it still won’t cost you a dime. It’s a beautiful, effective and otherwise spectacular way to sketch on the iPad and iPhone, and it easily earns our recommendation.
Note Anytime requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
