Everyone who owns an iPad should get this app. And other developers should watch and learn
by on April 27, 2012
For all but the very best developers, it usually proves impossible to make an app that’s not only feature-packed and flexible but also polished and easy to use. Clearly, Noteshelf has an exceptionally good developer.
Noteshelf is such a good balance of polish, power and ease of use that it earns a place in our Tap! Top 10. You can create multiple notebooks, and stack and arrange them on a shelf. Each notebook has a default paper style – lined, squared, and more – but you can mix paper types in one book; yay! Better still, you can import your own templates.
The virtual ink feels natural, and you have lots of colours to choose from, as well as a tray of highlighters. You can select bits of the drawing and move them around, zoom to write smaller, and a clever method of wrist detection means you can rest it down as you write with a stylus. Finished pages can be shared in many ways.
There’s no handwriting recognition, and the option to type as well as hand-write would be nice, but even so: superb.
