How else do you explain the explosion of notes apps on the iTunes App Store and the Mac App Store? Notes apps are everywhere and range from free to crazy expensive. Here’s a look at one clever notes app that’s actually both.
iSwipe, Therefore, iAm?
Notes apps are like photo apps, photo enhancement apps, graphic apps, or word processor apps. One size does not fit all.
If you’re in the mood for both free and colorful, you’ll like Letterspace, a unique and somewhat newer Mac, iPhone, and iPad notes app.
Letterspace is simple and uncomplicated. The app uses a unique #hashtag tagging system to organize notes and make them easier to find (notes grow, you know) on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad.
On the Mac, the hashtag categories are displayed in a lefthand sidebar. A middle column displays the title and first sentence or so, while the main window displays the entire note.
Here’s what it looks like. Plain and simple, right?
Letterspace is mostly distraction free (a euphemism for few features, which, in and of themselves can be a distraction), and very easy to setup and use. The only issue most Mac users will run into is the Markdown syntax. Hashtags.
Letterspace is free for the Mac but has an in-app purchase option for more colorful themes. It also syncs up with Letterspace for iPhone and iPad by using iCloud, and, again, there’s an in-app option for an additional colorful theme.
Letterspace for iOS also has a unique swipe-to-move bar above the keyboard which lets you move to forward or backwards within text much easier and faster. Nicely done, free, and syncs well between Mac and iOS versions.
