Now I’m not so sure that’s the case, so I’m taking more steps to secure my own data from prying eyes– whether government hackers or nefarious hackers. Here’s an app that helps do that; Mac, iPhone, iPad.
Janus Notes is a simple, affordable, encrypted note taking app for OS X and iOS that adheres to the basics of document security.
The app is named after the latin god Janus— the one with two faces; one looking forward to the future, the other looking back to the past.
It’s an obvious stretch, but the two faces of Janus Notes could be privacy and cloud storage, or OS X and iOS, or sharing and control.
I told you it was a stretch. Regardless, Janus Notes is decent as notes taking apps go.
You’ll see it less a mini word processor and more bare bones notes app that syncs nicely from Mac to Dropbox to iPhone or iPad.
The claim to fame with Janus Notes is the option to encrypt your notes with a password and save the password in OS X’s built-in Keychain for security.
Basically, Janus Notes couldn’t be much simpler to use. There are few bells and whistles (though you can save an attachment to a note, but not securely). The interface is almost sophomoric, but the sync between Macs and iPhone or iPad is handled well with Dropbox.
There are many more secure options for notes and documents, but Janus Notes will be attractive to those who want simplicity and a little bit of security, as opposed to complexity and more security.
