Shotnote app review: a new way to share notes



You've probably used a pad and paper before to make notes, and then you likely evolved to using your mobile note to jot down notes and thoughts; now we have a new way to do a little note-taking. The Shotnote app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and gives users the ability to leave a visual note that your friends can view and really create a social game out of note-taking.

Visual Notes of Fun

Shotnote is a fun way to share notes with your friends. The way this app works is that you will take a photo, tag it with a location, and then you'll be able to leave the note for your friends to see. It’s obviously a lot more engaging and fun than a standard written note that people tend to look right past. It doesn't matter if you want to leave one random and funny note for a friend or if you're creating a whole trail of notes for that special someone to find and solve a puzzle with the app can help you out.

In the app's most recent update changes and enhancements were made so that users can now use it on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and enjoy a fabulous experience. As well users can now enjoy all the app's features on iOS 8. In the meantime developers have plans to add more features and tools in upcoming updates. The app doesn’t yet have a customer rating nor does it have any customer comments at this time.

Making Use of the App

So when it comes to using the Shotnote app users can look forward to a quick and simple process. The way it works is that you send you take a picture and tag it with a location. Next you send your friend a teaser that lets them know a note is waiting for them at the specified location. When they arrive they will be able to view the note. Of course in order to do this the app will require GPS to be running in the background, which of course can decrease the battery life pretty quickly. In an effort to minimize the impact this app has on your battery the app uses geofences when possible.

I really like the fun factor that this app offers; you can relive hilarious moments at specified locations, share how you feel with someone, and really communicate in a more personal manner.
