With the increase in smartphone and tablet usage, notebook apps for these devices are steadily gaining popularity. People love to take various notes on these devices and even create daily journals on these apps. But the usage of notepad apps is getting serious with each passing day and people have started to document research and academic papers on such apps. Notebooks is one of the many notepad apps available in the iOS market today. Created by Alfons Schmid, this app is targeted at being the one stop shop for all notebook solutions.
Notebooks iPad App Review
Notebooks for iPad lets you create hierarchical journals which makes storing and cross-referencing documents very easy. Also many users like to store their thoughts in this way for clarity of thinking and ease of use. Notes can be created in simple text formats or created in the WYSIWYG format. The interface has detailed support for fonts and colors which lets you create documents as per the style you want.
Notebooks for iPad is a worthwhile task manager as well. Every document you create with this app has its own action menu and action items. Using this menu, you can change any journal entry into a task with the touch of a button. Nested tasks can be created as well and status of the tasks can be fluidly managed. Tasks can also be created into document entries. Tasks can be arranged as per context and alarms can be assigned to each task.
This app supports a large number of file formats and syncs seamlessly with multiple applications. It syncs with Evernote documents and lets users edit them effortlessly. Notebooks for iPad can import web pages from Safari and turn them into documents. MS Office documents are edited easily without any compatibility issues. ZIP archives can be operated, while HTML documents can be imported, edited and even created using markup.
This intuitive app can crosslink several stored documents making them easy to search and reference. Free cloud storage offers 30 days back browsing, meaning your files are secured for one month which is long enough for you to finish processing them. Notebooks for iPad has the ability to record voice memos as well. So people can stop taking those tedious minutes of meetings and instead just turn on the app on their iPads and record the whole session to be played back later and make important notes. It supports several audio formats for ease of use and flexibility.
I would also like point out a minor issue with this voice memos feature. It has been found that random recordings do not play upon recording and also stored audio files are bigger than other such apps. If this issue is resolved, then Notebooks for iPad will be a force to reckon with. The app is currently available for 8.99 USD.
