Swipy - App Review



There seem to be more note taking Apps than the square of the letters in the alphabet (that's 676 if you check).

Swipy allows you to easily update notes to Evernote, Dropbox, or post to Twitter.

It is this immediate access to a variety of sharing options, together with the ability to swipe (the clue's in the name) to make access to them even quicker.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
There's nothing special about the note entry and editing screen, which is just the way I like it; nothing to distract from the task at hand. There is a small panel on the left with the note titles and then the whole rest of the real estate is left for you to enter notes.

There is the option to set a preference for the task to be accomplished when swiping right (post to email, Dropbox, Evernote, Twitter), in addition you can also post directly to Facebook.

That's pretty much all there is to it, which is just what you want for sharing notes seamlessly.

Cost
This is an inexpensive $1 App.

Indispensability
Note taking is something one just does (doesn't one?). This neat App allows you to use the same interface, regardless of where you want to share it.

Dependability
Keeping the App simple also means that it is bereft of luxuries. This means, for example, that there is no option of which folder to put your note into. The note is also simply titled as a smiley and a clover.

Security
The ease with which one can transfer information to, especially, Facebook and Twitter, means that you need to be careful. You wouldn't want to instantly Tweet a private memo.
