Best Note-Making App. Classic Simplicity
This is the best note-making app I have found so far, after trying out several over the past six months. It is the only one that allows easy insertion of either bullets, numbers, or checkboxes, which means you can add precision to your notes. The customizable UI makes it easy on the eye, so that it is a pleasure to go back and read what you have written. It supports Air Print, and instantly prints out a beautifully formatted and accurately documented hard copy of any note. It is now a universal app, with instant syncing between devices, so whether you work on iPhone or iPad you are always working with the most recent version of your notes. The only regret I feel is that at present NoteMaster dates a note from the last time you worked on it. This means you do not have an accurate record of the note's creation date, nor can you sort your notes by creation date. NoteMaster could also be improved by making it possible to back-date an entry; for example, if you are entering a note you wrote several years ago. I would also like to see the checkboxes a little bigger, and not so close to the edge, as this can sometimes be a little difficult to check an item (iPhone version). I wrote to the developer about these things, who responded promptly and appreciatively, and said they are planning to incorporate these ideas in future updates. These points are not indicative of defects, but of enhancements to what is already the best note-maker of the lot (at least where text notes are concerned, not discounting that you can add pictures). That is the reason for the five stars. I like the idea of another reviewer, about being able to add sub-bullets; and of another, about highlighting, bolding, and italicizing; but would not like to see such things at the cost of the ease with which you can now enter headings, bullets, numbers, and checkboxes. You don't have to go through the bottleneck of Markdown, as the app has it all there for you, on one button or one easily accessible ribbon. Keep up the classic and elegant simplicity, NoteMaster!
