This is a pretty decent app overall although I should point out that there have been some complaints from users regarding files not being saved, or previously saved files disappearing; I haven’t experienced this so it might be a compatibility issues with some newer iPhone models.

Dictate Your Notes

Making a solid addition to the Productivity category of the App Store is this utility which provides a simple yet effective interface within which you can create your own personal notes, with the option to choose between a variety of font styles, colors, and sizes based on your preferences.

There is also a great speech-to-text function that will allow you to dictate to your iOS device instead of typing, so you could quickly say what’s on your mind and then get back to whatever it is you were doing.
