Swiptly app review: create and organize your notes



There's no reason to run around feeling frazzled forgetting this and that thanks to this brand-new release. The Swiptly app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone makes it possible to create, manage, and organize notes. The app feels a bit like sticky notes except you've got all kinds of added features that sticky notes can't offer you. The app supports iCloud so you can ensure you've always got them available to you no matter where you are or what device you're on.

Create Notes on the Go

Long gone are the days you have to search around for a pen and paper when you want to make a note and thanks to the Swiptly app you can quickly make a note wherever you are on your mobile device and then sync it with the Cloud. You can make and save as many notes as you want as there is no limit and what's great is that you can use color to organize them. There are five very vibrant colors to choose from that will make your notes pop. The app comes with a "Today" widget which is where you'll find the notes that are the most important so that you don't have to waste time looking through the app itself. This widget can be added to your notification center as an extension so you can view it without unlocking your device and opening the app.

Because this productivity app is new it doesn't have any updates at this time, a customer rating, or customer comments. Please keep in mind you'll need iOS 8.0 or later to use it.

Exploring the Tools

The Swiptly app is kept very basic and clean but with that said you are still given a number of tools that will allow you to manage and organize your notes. Besides the different note colors you can choose from there is also the ability to move a note to the top of the list and just to be sure it really gets noticed you can make it red. Users can smoothly and quickly choose the order of the notes, edit them, and archive notes. As an added productivity feature, notes can be shared with others.

This is a visually appealing and streamlined approach to note taking. For many people the note-based apps can get pretty confusing and way too busy so if you just want a quick and easy approach this is the app for you. It's as close to a pen and paper as can be without it feeling dated.
