How many notes apps are there for iPhone and iPad? More than I care to try, and probably more than I care to count (with over 800,000 apps in the App Store). So, it pays to choose wisely when it comes to a note taking, writing, coding app for iPhone and iPad.
After wading through a dozen also-rans, I settled on Nebulous Notes (the one for Dropbox). If you take notes or write you want an app that syncs up your files between iPhone and iPad (and even the Mac; more on that in a moment).
On the iPhone, Nebulous Notes is compact, but self explanatory. Setup keyboard macros for easier text entry. Change the screen’s brightness, adjust fonts, size, and color, and choose from multiple themes.
Preferences are not extensive, but the macro function is to die for and well done. Macros help to speed up your typing by using shortcuts.
The iPad version is similar, but gives you more room to type and view your writing.
Both iPhone and iPad version will open files from Dropbox, search Dropbox, and feature fullscreen support for distraction free writing.
The Dropbox option is especially useful because notes and writing projects can also be viewed on the Mac using TextEdit. If you need on-the-go writing capability that’s instantly familiar and usable, Nebulous Notes is a good place to start.
