Write app review: note taking in a whole new way



Yes there are plenty of apps dedicated to note-taking but they aren't all built the same and they certainly don't all offer what this next one does. The Write app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and gives users a brilliantly simple way to take and write notes. You'll want to be sure you don't pass off this minimal looking app as too simple though because it is loaded with powerful features, which is exactly why it has more than 1,000,000 users to date.

This is where the Write app can come in very handy. The whole goal of this app is to simplify the lives of users and provide them with a quick and user-friendly way to make notes. What’s great is that you’ll always have you notes with you when you need them and the app is handy whenever you want to jot down items.
