NoteLedge - App Review



The App name of 'NoteLedge' makes one think of another note taking App; there really are plenty of those out there, each (of the good ones, anyway), with their special features.

NoteLedge is really much more than a simple note taker, and in many ways not a note taker at all.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
This is very much an iOS 7 style App, where pulling down images makes things happen.

The home screen has a number of options:

Setting
This where you set your, mandatory, password, so as to protect your information.

Cloud
There are multitudinous ways to keep your information synchronised. Not only the ubiquitous Dropbox and Evernote (and those of you who have followed this blog for a while know how important these are) but also box, MyDisk.se, Google Docs, Google Drive, SugarSync, as well as other FTP and WebDAV Servers. You should find something to make you happy amongst that lot.

Be careful if you enter this option without actually adding an account; there isn't an obvious way to get back, except quitting the App.

There are further tabs for PDF, Map, Calendar, and Archive.

+
This is the button for the real business end of the App. Tap it to add a new note, and then choose the cover for the book, and give it a name.

Your basic tools consist of a set of coloured pencils (those of you familiar with the Caran d'Ache tins will immediately feel at home. Pick your colour and then swipe the two tabs on the other side of the screen marked Size and Opacity. Swiping up will increase size/opacity and downwards will, unsurprisingly, achieve the opposite.

There are very useful undo and redo icons for those times when you change your mind.

You can also add images from the supplied templates.

Your efforts can be saved, and shared (including directly by Facebook and Twitter).

Cost
This is a $5 App.

Indispensability
If you are looking for a sophisticated way to create, store, and share freehand information, this could be right up your street. The odd thing is that there is no keyboard access.

Dependability
The App works very well (Cloud issue excepted), on an iPhone. However, it really lends itself even better to the larger screen real estate of the iPad.

Security
You must protect your precious notes with a password; it's good to see a developer force the user to be careful.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Almost too clever.
