Scriptus - App Review



We all take notes; some are satisfied with just putting plain text onto a sheet (as in the iOS App ,'Notes'), others want more control.

Scriptus enables you to create a simple note (if that's all you want) but also to get much more sophisticated.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
You are greeted by what looks like a reporter's notebook, with some icons across the top of the page. Tapping on the page brings up a keyboard (QWERTY or whatever you have set).

The controls at the top of the page include bullet and arrow indents, with the neat way of turning off by simply hitting return twice.

The text size can be increased or decreased, although only for the full page.

There are the better part of 200 emoticons that can be accessed.

A search function lets you very easily find text (you don't find that feature on all note taking Apps).

As far as I am aware, a unique feature of speaking your note, where you can set the speed and pitch, as well as the language. Obviously, this has uses, as well as providing entertainment.

Another tool gives you the number of characters and words in your document.

You can share your note as a text or pdf.

Audio notes can be created, although I could not see how to play them within the App.



Cost
The App costs a nominal $1.

Indispensability
You take notes, right?

Dependability
The audio notes function seems a little odd.

This App is iPad specific.

Security
This is a standalone App. Obviously that when you share your notes, you need to keep to the usual caveats.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Idiosyncratic and brilliant note taker/player.
