Notes on a Roll app review: humorous productivity

Reviews

Introduction

Where most other note-taking apps for iPhone and iPad take a rather dull or generic approach to their presentation, Notes on a Roll injects a little touch of levity to help you stay productive in a more light-hearted manner.

Looking through the way this app is visually presented we can see that it is actually a pretty decent addition to the Productivity category of the App Store, offering some great functionality all wrapped up in, well, toilet paper!

Wipe the Disorder Away

If you’re in the market for a handy note-taking tool for your iOS device - something that can do a little more than the standard Notes widget on your iPhone - then you might like to consider taking this one for a spin.

The interface is presented as a roll of toilet paper, hence the title Notes on a Roll, and enables you to type out and then save individual notes as well as adding audio, images, and even videos to your notes if you want to.
