This iPad application works with notes in the form of words or images. It allows the user to create new notes, or use ones that already exist. The user can organise his/her notes using the iPad apps familiar, simple and user-friendly layout. An unlimited number of folders and sub-folders can be added. (Meteor Notes Lite is available as a free iPad application, but only stores a limited number of notes.) The user is able to select from various options to customise his/her notes. Ultimately, the notes can be organised, stored, shared or printed.
With the iPad apps search feature, there is no need to remember where notes are filed. The name of the folder, or a key word, can simply be typed in and the note will be found. Notes can also be deleted, renamed or moved quickly and easily.
Options that allow for customisation of notes are:
The font of both the title and contents of the notes.
The theme, which enables the user to view the notes with a night, white or black background.
The bullets and lists, which can be automatic and included as a toolbar on the keypad.
The Dropbox account.
The Dropbox backup.
Meteor Notes enables the user to take a new photo using his/her camera, or use existing photos from the Photos library. The iPad application is able to import notes already created in other applications from Gmail or Dropbox, as well as backup notes to Dropbox. The user can access notes from his/her computer by broadcasting them directly from Meteor Notes over local WiFi. Notes can also be printed and emailed. Information and tips are provided to the user in the form of notes that have already been set up in a folder called My iPad.
Students, housewives, business people, and in fact anybody, can most definitely improve their productivity substantially by using Meteor Notes as a planning and organisational tool. Why spend hours writing and tearing up notes on scraps of paper, only to find that ultimately there is no time to actually get anything done? Whilst in order to achieve maximum productivity, it is essential to have effectively created, stored and shared notes, note taking has got to be quick and easy, and Meteor Notes ensures just that!
