Notebook: The Note-Making App You Need

You are probably thinking what need is there for another note-making app? While there certainly is no dearth of applications dedicated to taking-notes, most of these are basic and dare we say, boring. The exceptions are there of course like Evernote, Google Keep and OneNote. However productivity software producer, Zoho has taken the age-old task of making notes a step further and has integrated all the features from your favourite applications into one pretty package.

Created by Zoho, Notebook is a note-making app that is both simple and beautiful. The interface is clean and the note organisation system makes the homepage delightfully clutter-free.

Notebook offers 25 hand-drawn book covers for you to choose from, so that you can finally group all your related notes into separate books. From checklists, text, photos and audio, you can now choose the type of note you wish to make or even make one note with several different formats in one. The feature which allows you to group your notes by arranging them into piles, makes the note-making process a lot more spontaneous and natural.

However if you forget to label a note or group it into another stack, you might just have a hard time finding it amongst all your other notes. For now the notes can only be viewed in either a grid or tile layout. Sorting your notes by date or title is an option that has been left to be desired from Zoho.

While Notebook has been marketing itself as an alternative to Evernote, there are certain features that are better on the latter app. If you are going to primarily use your app to copy and paste content off the internet, you will probably find Evernote with its rich features a lot more user friendly.

On the other hand if you are looking for an application that will sync across multiple of your mobile devices, Notebook is the way to go. Another fun feature of Zoho’s note-making app is the randomly generated colour backgrounds of each note, which can also be customized. An additional feature that Notebook has marketed as its plus point over Evernote.

The missing feature of Notebook however is the lack of an internet application, meaning you still can’t make notes on the app from your computer. While the app has several exciting features and definitely looks a step above its competitors, there are still some features that need to either be added or tweaked.

The app is available on both Android and iOS platforms so go ahead download it and try it out for yourself!

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
