Squarenotiz app review: novel note-taking



Mixing productivity with imagination is the awesome Squarenotiz for iPhone and iPad, a very interesting utility that offers a novel take on note-taking with a square-laden interface, animated text, and other goodies.

The best iPhone apps for note-taking

I lost count of the amount of note-taking apps I’ve reviewed a very long time ago, and I have to say that the vast majority of them are more or less the same thing. Squarenotiz, on the other hand, definitely provides a breath of fresh air to the genre.



It's Hip to be Square

What we’ve got here is a fantastic addition to the Productivity category of the App Store that provides you with an innovative and frankly ingenious method of taking notes, filling your screen with an interesting interface based on a tiled or square-filled theme.

The best iPad apps for creating lists

This app provides general note-taking features like comparable developments in the genre, but where it differs is that you can use the gesture-based controls to move your notes around on individual squares, as well as coloring each square differently for a more customized appearance.

Sync With iCloud

I think my favorite feature in Squarenotiz is the ability to animate the text in your notes; this enables you to read your text without having to scroll with your fingers, so you can just sit back and read while the text scrolls.

The best iPad apps for note-taking

In addition to all of this you can easily access your notes from any of your iOS devices by synchronizing your records with iCloud, making this app ideal for jotting down your thoughts on your iPhone while on the go before going home and viewing them in all their animated glory on your iPad.
