iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
One of the greatest things about the iPhone is its potential to keep us all organized and productive. If you don’t believe us, think back to a time when you were using just a Palm or a simple Blackberry. Sure, we got stuff done, but not nearly with the same efficiency. Why is the iPhone so different? Largely, because it has applications like NexusApp, from NexusPad LLC.
The app is a phenomenal way to stay on top of your business dealings, your personal notes, and just about anything else you could want to store and track. It’s also free (up to a gig) which is quite the added bonus. For our full review, you need only to look below!
Concept and Functionality
If you have ever used an application like Evernote before, then you already have a pretty solid handle on how NexusApp works. The app requires that you sign up for an account beforehand, but don’t worry: It’s not complicated, and we setup ours in about three seconds.
Once that’s out of the way, you’re handed a free gigabyte of cloud storage, and are told to get right to it.
NexusApp lets you store just about anything you could want to within its walls. You can add contacts for safekeeping, keep your events and to-dos harbored, add journal entries, stash those docs and notes, and even add photos or bookmarks. The latter is most reminiscent to something like Evernote’s web clip, but not quite as universal.
The end result is a convenient way to have all your life’s data in one spot, and without any fuss or worry. We really liked the full text editor for our documents, as well as the silky smooth interface. But, that’s not to say we don’t have our complaints with the app. More of that below!
Design and Implementation
We really do like the way that NexusApp has been packaged, and we also happen to like its features. However, there are a few chinks in its armor, still. For instance, it’s hard to see why one would use the app over something like Evernote or SugarSync that is a direct competitor, does the same things (and then some) and also comes with more extensive development support. Down to the fact that NexusApp only gives you one gig to work with.
In other words, we think NexusApp itself is solid and wonderful, but is there really any benefit to using it over one of the more established entries into the genre?
Though, it is still hard to knock NexusApp for its value. As a free application in the app store, there’s no reason not to grab it today if you’re curious. Perhaps it meets your needs in a way that one of the larger note storing titles doesn’t. Or maybe you’ll just like it more! Who knows, but either way, it’s a phenomenal value and a great steal.
NexusApp requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
