Notebook and note taking apps are a dime a dozen in the iTunes App Store. I’ve downloaded a bunch, and deleted most. I have always heard wonderful things about Circus Ponies Notebook for Mac; in fact, there are a few podcasters who rave about the software. When I had the opportunity to review NoteBook for iPad I was expecting great things. Did NoteBook for iPad meet my expectations?

NoteBook was exclusively a Mac app, until late 2010 when Circus Ponies released a version for the iPad. Both versions sync wirelessly through Dropbox, keeping all notebooks current, but I’ll be focusing on NoteBook for iPad.

Day 1

On April 18, 2011, in iPhone, iPod Touch, Review, by Elisa Pacelli

The iTunes app store is loaded with note apps, almost as many as fart apps. But unlike fart apps, note apps serve a real purpose: they help keep us organized. Yet how do you know which note app is worth your time and money? Over the next four days I’ll be reviewing four different note apps that offer different features that appeal to different users.
